I found a ton of 80s 12"ers in my loft yesterday Visage, Spandau, Soft Cell - I must get round to blogging them..

Yeah, Raintown, what a horrible LP.
I saw Deacon Blue support Simple Minds a couple of years ago and made sure I was the only fucker sitting down and played a golf game on my phone. Which proves something: I hate Deacon Blue even more than I hate golf.

Bright Ambassador, I'm with you all the way. There is nothing NOTHING on this earth that will make me like Deacon Blue. Raintown is marginally less hateful than the albums that followed it, but I hate, hate HATE Deacon Blue. Hate Deacon Blue. If, in return for sitting through that album, I was presented with Nico Rosberg, liberally basted in Ambrosia custard, holding in one hand a DVD containing every episode of Top Gear and in the other, the key fob and log book of a Bugatti Veyron SS (or a Ferrari FXX - to be honest, I'm not too picky about that detail), I still wouldn't listen to it. I'm not keen, if I'm honest.

Oh Lordy Mondo, yes, do! All of them.

BA, I did it for you. I always feel like any kind of response from you makes a blog post worthwhile...

Anon, ta for that. Fortunately I pick the music for everyone and therefore the odd dud, in some eyes, will slip under the radar. Thanks for posting.
