101-200, The Waiting Room (Or The Obligatory Next Ton) of Dread by Jimmy Dread (2021)

Yep, I've caved in to doing a chart with another 100 LPs that would otherwise be in the all-time 100 were it not for the fact that there's 100 albums better. Not that there's much wrong with any of these picks - they're all zingers (and on any given day one of the first 50 in this list could easily sneak into the 100 when one of the incumbents has their back turned). Be amazed as some albums that you're likely sick to death of co-exist with obscure shit from Brazil or Jamaica. Enjoy it whilst it lasts, as being the pinickity git I am I'll probably delete this chart in a fit of rage when my son decides to run off with my DAC again. Out of all the the charts of mine on here, this is probably the most likely to fluctuate, and will more likely reflect my current listening habits than even my overall 100 (of which a few of these LPs will doubtlessly make in due time). Comments to follow where there are none when I can be arsed, plunder it for recs all you like... Jimmy, May 2021

PICK - If I Can't Change Your Mind; FIRST HEARD: NME recommendation. Responsible for later love of Husker Du. I got Husker Du's debut LP "Everything Falls Apart" from Our Price in Farnborough expecting it to sound similar to this. Oops. Had to get my mum to take it back as was too embarrassed to do so myself.

PICK - Intro Bonito; FIRST HEARD: via Revolver on plug.dj. I've always had a penchant for twee electro-pop, and it doesn't come much twee-er than songs about rescuing cats from trees and the like. KKB sound like M.I.A. got in a fight with Shonen Knife over who gets to play Super Mario World on the SNES - it's a multi-lingual dancehall party which if put on the national curriculum would see the number of students taking up Japanese soar by 36.9% at the very least. One of my favourite BEA discoveries - ta muchly, Hugh.

PICK - Lady Fair; FIRST HEARD: via Eilir. One of the best things about finding a friend who shares similar music taste to you is that you end up bouncing recs off one another to such an extent that your tastes end up blurring and then falling out with one another because you both wanted the same record and there was only one copy available. Luckily this didn't happen here with what remains to me Euros Childs and co's finest half-hour. A far cry from the psychedelia Cymraeg that was Bwyd Time and Barafundle, this is 8 tracks of pure folk-tinged acoustica to sing round a roaring campfire in Pembrokeshire. Or to listen to on your mate's record player in Cardiff, which after finding it on eBay for him (it was the only Gorky's LP he was missing on vinyl) I am awaiting an invite from my good Welsh bud to do.
