- Forgotten albums
Was listening to some music last night and heard Feed the Tree by Belly. It was bugging me where I knew this from and after some searching came across a 1993 compilation album called Loaded which I had on cassette and had completely forgotten about. After listening to all the tracks the memories came flooding back – I must have been 18 and I bought it at Manchester airport on the way to holiday and played it death on my Walkman. It made me feel young and sent me down a rabbit hole of forgotten tracks e.g. I’d forgotten how good Jesus Jones were…
It always amazes me how music can bring back such strong memories and emotions
Anyone else have this album, or any other albums you played to death but had forgotten about, only to discover again?Posted 5 months ago
Funnnnnillly enough, was decorating the other day, stereo was disconnected, so shoved a DVD of music I found in the DVD player to play through the telly. Not that any of that is relevant, but the album from Simian “We Are Your Friends” was on there. 2002, apparently. Was a good album. Wonder what happened to em. Apart from the big remix of this by Justice, they disappeared…
Ps. Strange how old music makes people “feel young”. Always makes me feel old… 2002 was 17 years ago!Posted 5 months agohowsyourdad1Subscriber
Well, I have an album on MiniDisc that i recorded 20 years ago. I sensibly labelled it ‘We’, so trying to google it or find it later was very hard, after I lost the disc itself.
Untll i found it last year in a shoebox of photos. It’s utterly brilliant and its classification is not easy. They call it illbient apparently, but it’s mainlyy jungle and ambient weirdness
‘We As Is’ is the album , and I now know DJ OLive was memberPosted 5 months agofingerbangSubscriber
I’ve got ‘from here on in’ and ‘with the tides’
Both really good albums from early noughties.
Colours in waves is just a great song
Can’t believe they weren’t any bigger to be honest, I think they got disillusioned with it all. Worked with James Lavelle IIRC
Hard band name to Google though
Also The Rain Band. Saw them supporting John squire in 2003 and they had a pretty strong debut album but then disappeared. ‘the runaways’ off that album is well worth listening if you can find it anywherePosted 5 months ago
‘made me feel young’ wasn’t quite what I meant, more ‘reminded me of my youth’, which is something quite different…
Yeah, makes more sense! Not like one of these “School disco” women: dressing up in ill-fitting school uniform and getting hammered to 80s music makes em feel young! 😆Posted 5 months agorazorrazooMember
I had that Loaded album too, a lot of the albums those singles come off I went out and bought and are great to go back to:
Sugar – Copper BluePosted 5 months ago
Lemonheads – It’s a Shame About Ray
Therapy? (I thinks it’s on some foreign release album)
Radiohead – Pablo Honey
Suede – Suede
The OP album is what got me into Belly’s first album Star. Borrowed in on CD from the local library and promptly copied it to tape. Been trying to find a track list of it for years with no success.
Distinctly remember going to see Belly at Newcastle Uni in 95 just after the second album came out – loved it. Then last night just found they released a third album in 2018.Posted 5 months agodeadlydarcyMember
Ah…indie compilations…from the OP. 😆
I realise compilations are a mortal sin – but I remember having a few copies of Shine compilations – some bought, some recorded from mates. Anybody remember those? Definitely helped me see, by way of introduction to Do You Remember The First Time that His ‘n’ Hers was better than Different Class, and introduced me to The Wannadies through Might Be Stars long before You And Me Song was ruined by the film. Happy days.Posted 5 months agoJef WachowchowMember
Re discovered one of my The Dickies (The Punk Singles) at the weekend.
Still love these guys. I heard their version of Paranoid long before I knew it was a cover version. When I eventually heard the Black Sabbath version, I thought it was awful in comparison.
As a result of these guys my interest in ‘current’ rock music scene is restricted to The Hives and The Datsuns. I find much else a bit self indulgent.
EDIT – there should be a link at the top of this post but it disappears once I post.Posted 5 months ago
