FLLR MC6-40 - Modern Classics Vol. #6
Modern Classics Vol. #6 #40
<< First of a series. I thought of looking for #1, but that would have taken you back to 1981 and very rough recordings done with a small transistor leaned up against the mic of an old Realistic tabletop mono recorder. You would have heard a 9-10 year old me play at DJ. Be thankful that I took it no further, not even deciding to pop on our local university radio station, little did I know that they would have probably let me on...didn't help that I commuted and didn't live on campus. So, instead I pulled out my early 90s set...one of a series of maybe 10-12 tapes... >>
Side A - 5/18/90
These were aired as part of Mark Hamilton's "Inside The UK Café", and
were all live. Icicle Works covering the Clash in 2020 is a bit of an
eye-opener. The Sugarcubes and Cure tracks are *great*. Click on the above link if you want to sample any of the below listed tracks.
Icicle Works - Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
The Sugarcubes - Coldsweat
The Cure - How Beautiful You Are
I augmented these with the following, which were on CDs (DM / The Smiths / Erasure) or bootleg (New Order). Obviously, all are classics of the genre.
Depeche Mode - People Are People
The Smiths - Panic
Erasure - Don't Dance
New Order - Age Of Consent
