According to the WordPress stats, this is our 4,000th post since we were removed from the internet by the Stalinesque Google Blogspot in April 2010, and forced to start MM all over again.

To celebrate we thought we would treat ourselves and post ten songs from prior to MM’s existence that helped shape our own musical landscape. A self-indulgent Desert Island discs if you will…from listening for the swearwords in the first Stiff Little Fingers album to following the Cropdusters all over the UK to an ill advised dalliance into the world of goths…

Here then are a special ten for MM…

.

Stiff Little Fingers – Alternative Ulster

.

Neil Young – After The Goldrush

.

The Butthole Surfers – Human Cannonball

.

The Clash – Armagideon Time

.

The Cropdusters – Just Poppin Out To Fight A War

.

The Doors – Cars Hiss By My Window

.

The Woodentops – Well Well Well

.

The Screaming Blue Messiahs – Sweet Water Pools

.

Lou Reed – How Do You Think It Feels?

.

The Mission – Deliverance

RIP Lou Reed

RIP Lou Reed

There are plenty who will find far better words than I to mourn the passing of Lou Reed.

Suffice to say he soundtracked much of my teenage years and fuelled many bedroom dreams of partying with NY’s avant-garde finest and haughty, heroin fuelled ice maidens. Only a few weeks ago I splashed some download credits on exploring his later back catalogue of solo albums like Set The Twilight Reeling and The Raven while Transformer, Berlin, Coney Island Baby and the live album Rock n Roll Animal are amongst the very finest records of the past forty years.

Like Brian Eno once said, “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.” As influences go, he was at the very top of the tree.

RiP Lou Reed.
