The start of the mod-revival and a brilliant song

The Mekons - Where Were You?

More classic post-punk. Everyone should have one

The Undertones - Teenage Kicks

Another stone cold classic - I don't think there's anything to say about them that hasn't already been said.

The Keys - I Don't Wanna Cry

Sounds to me like the LAs must have heard this record. Or maybe they'd all heard the Byrds! Lovely stuff

Those Naughty Lumps - Iggy Pop's Jacket

Released on Liverpool's Zoo Records - came in a fold out sleeve designed by Bill Drummond and Dave Balfe

Glaxo Babies - Christine Keeler

Quite simply one of the best songs of any era - great lyrics, perfect music. I just can't get enough of it

A bit late for this blog but its a lovely song - and its my blog!!!!

Martin Rushent - Give It All You've Got

Solo stuff from the Human League (and many others) producer.

Weird stuff from those devolution boys!! Their first and I still think their best

The Only Ones - Another Girl Another Planet

Just one of the best songs ever!
