This is my list of favourite bands / artists page.
Over the years, I have also collected more mainstream artists, which is reflected here in the updated menu at the top.
Some of these I have collected as I used to hear my friend Richard play them at various times over the years - so seemed natural for me to collect them too. His output is also listed using various band names but catalogued here as his current recording name "The Permanent Smilers". The Adam and the Ants records came from my brother-in-law Iain. Others though I have collected because I liked them when I heard them on the radio - e.g. The Cure. The odd one out here is Secret Garden, I got interested in them when they won the Eurovision Song Content - unusually for me I actually really liked it the first time I heard it on the programme - so much so I taped the music from TV onto an audio cassette!
Please feel free to select which one you wish to look at, all releases I have associated with that band / artist will be shown.
Note: Some of these listings, particularly The Stranglers page, will take around a minute to load.
