so, what do you reach for, when that’s what you need?

here’s one to grow on

Love that tune :ok_hand:

Always come back to this one, 1988 just leaving school, still a total indie kid before getting drawn into the wonderful & frightening world of house music….

Early ‘90’s summers during my last couple of years at school: music, skateboarding and a whole universe to discover.

Best summers I’ve had and music was a massive part. I had my first set of decks and was picking up records whenever I could, but it was all about the tapes - house, hip hop, reggae, punk & indie.

This is one that I regularly go back to to take me straight back to those days. The album was on a lot one summer.

Those teenage years are the one’s that shape you in my experience, 14 to 17.
There’s many more of course but these 2 spring to mind.

Both those bands for me too. Stone Roses probably my first serious dive into music

Lived in Baltimore for a period when I was a kid, was pretty rough round that time. Remember hearing this on the radio and never heard anything like it, always go back to it.

I think actually I go back to the period just after I left school in 1985. Propaganda’s Duel was a summer chart hit, and I bought the album A Secret Wish later that year, just after I’d moved to Birmingham. Duel for me is one of the best out and out pop records of the Eighties.

I didn’t know anyone so I did a LOT of sitting in my bedroom, smoking endless Embassy Number 1 (or Marlboro soft pack when I could get them) angst ridden, reading the NME and books and listening to music, taping John Peel as often as I could. I was really into ZTT from the FGTH thing in '83 and '84, plus of course The Art of Noise.
