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

.

My copies of Uncut and Mojo were on the mat waiting for me after getting back from the Canary Islands yesterday and both have sweet cover disks.

Mojo & Uncut Free Cover DisksUncut have a cracking selection of tunes from some of the latest new releases including Sebadoh, Calexico, Thee Oh Sees, James Yorkston, Patterson Hood, and Dinosuar Jr amongst others.

Mojo & Uncut Free Cover DisksMojo have gone back to the jangle indie-pop heyday of the mid-eighties with a selection of (mainly) UK classics that includes Felt, The Weather Prophets, Billy Bragg, Close Lobsters, Martin Stephenson & The Daintees and The Blue Aeroplanes.

Here are a couple of choice selections from both – well worth having and available from any decent newsagents.
