This is another great Bunnymen album with a nother great sleeve. I am particularly fond of this one as this is the music they were touring with when I saw them for the first time. [First added to this chart: 04/20/2012]

I was surprised to find this in John Menzies, Arbroath. I asked the lady at the desk to let me listen to it before I bought it. Half way through the second track she took it off an started to put it away. "Nobody will buy that." I gave her my money. [First added to this chart: 04/20/2012]

Very good 80`s chart if I keep in mind that there are so many brilliant albums in your overall chart that are missing here.
Pleased to see John Cales "Music..."

I'm 49 and this brings back great memories of John Peel. Here's a few more names that might ring a bell from the Peel show during the early to mid 80s (the golden age):

The Gymslips
Serious Drinking
3 Mustaphas 3
The Ukrainians
Native Hipsters
Belle Stars
Frank Chickens
