- Forgotten albums
Sitting in the back of my mates car the other day and he put this on..
It’s been decades since I last heard it.. it was actually really rather good.
I bought my car last year , it had a cassette player with this in it
I used to listen to it all the time when it came out
and this too

Listened to New Boots & Panties the other day for the first time in decades. Forgotten just how good it is.roger_mellieSubscriber
Quality tracklist on the OP! 🙂
On Spotify, someone’s made it into a playlist:
The Shine ones are there too as playlists:Posted 5 months ago
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.
Belly reformed in 2016, I saw them play Bristol the day before my birthday, nineteen years after they last toured – the best birthday pressy I could have wished for.
Gail, the bass player, was undergoing treatment for breast cancer at the time, though you’d never know it from her performance. They were fantastic.Posted 5 months agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber
found this whilst clearing the loft, i bought the CD whilst waiting at B’ham airport arrivals for a girl I met MTBing in Glentress to land from edinburgh, my first encounter since divorce way back when. great album and i’m still friends with the girl 14 years later 🙂Posted 4 months ago
First time I heard this, it was either my 18th or 21st birthday (the former I think). Weekday night, went to the pub with a mate who was a bit older, and got chatting to a feller who was the dad of someone I knew from school. On learning it was my birthday, he invited us back when the pub shut. He put a bunch of folky music on (much to my dismay he had no Crass or Dead Kennedys) and produced a bottle of damson wine he purported to have made the year I was born, a sure sign that we should drink it, so drink it we did. It was rank and the bottom of the bottle had this sludgy matter which he then “remembered” was magic mushrooms. Details sketchy from then on, other than a clear image of this bloke dancing around his front room to 70s folk records wearing nothing but a pair of step ladders.Posted 4 months ago
Fast forward to 2018, (the bloke is now a Labour councillor) and I’m driving along one day when Spotify plays a song I’m sure I have heard before but can’t quite place where. Welcome back, Roy Harper.

Not so much an album, as a song off a mix tape.
In the early nineties, a big part of life with friends involved imbibing banned substances. Music was of course an equally hectic ingredient.
I had this mix tape that so often seemed to accompany our tripped out nights spent in mates cars parked up in the local hills.
There was one song in particular that stood out from that tape for me, and would take me right back into that madness of putting tiny bits of paper on your tongue and waiting for the start of hours of surreal.
The tape though, got ruined, by my sister, who TAPED OVER IT, with some vacuous pop rubbish or something and so I never knew who the band were or what the song was called, only that it was so spot on for the time, and had a sample that went ‘BABYLON’….before this heavy, heavy base line.
Six music had a thing the other week playing music from that time and I couldn’t believe it when the song came on, on Lauren’s show. Finally I could put that agony of losing your favourite mix tape to bed. Turns out it was this. Record bought! 🙂👍Posted 4 months agokiwicraigMember
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?
Yes!! When I read the OP’s post I had vague recollections of those Indie tapes and couldn’t remember their name. Off to try and find some copies on the Interwebs…

I remember having a few copies of Shine compilations
I’ve got one sitting in the car, stole it off my brother way back… Got some good stuff on it, but also a whole load of very forgettable crap.
I’ve been working my way through various “Top 100 Albums of All Time” type lists, they usually turn up a few gems. And again a whole load of forgettable crap 🙂
Current list is a bit AOR, I have to admit I’ve been skipping bits of it:
This one is/was more in keeping with the spirit of the OP’s Loaded:Posted 4 months ago
