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


World Goth Day: A Nostalgic Mixtape!

The tunes playing on Radio 6 this morning in tongue-in-cheek honour of National Goth Day made us all nostalgic for our very own black and purple tinged youth, when Wayne Hussey and Andrew Eldritch ruled the airwaves (sort of) and Fields of the Nephilim kept Homepride in business.

Here then for your listening and reminiscing pleasure, as the witching hour approaches, a 13 song mixtape down memory lane. In our cloaks and via the graveyard of course, accompanied by legions of squeaking bats.
