Favourite albums…

I’ve been nominated to list 10 all-time, favourite albums. Ones which have really made an impact, been influential and are my go-to albums even if only now and then.

However, I’m not going to post one a day because I don’t look at Facebook every day.

These are in the order that I discovered them and with a comment, I couldn’t resist.

ELO – Out of the Blue

Stoke Goldington and a world of endless possibility.

Yazoo – Upstairs at Eric’s

Like getting new ears.

Pet Shop Boys – actually.

Brought in HMV Milton Keynes straight off the delivery truck.

The Beatles – 1967-1970

There was stuff older than me and then discovering Liverpool for a second time.

Bryan Adams – Reckless

The soundtrack of life in Brighton with a tape player in the glovebox.

Celine Dion – D’Eux

France! Everyday a new discovery.

Radiohead – The Bends

A Smart, football and flying the world.

Stereophonics – Word Gets Around

The best album about spending your teenage years in a small town.

Gomez – Liquid Skin

The last album on the desert island.

Ben Folds – Songs for Silverman

Children and California


Michael Nyman composes Hillsborough memorial…

I could not think of a better person for the job.

“Celebrated British composer Michael Nyman has composed a Hillsborough memorial symphony to open 2014’s Liverpool Biennial on 5 July.”


BBC News – Michael Nyman composes Hillsborough memorial symphony.

The Titanic Sails at Dawn…

“The real question of this decade is not whether to compromise or not, but how much and in what way.”
