My Bloody Valentine Loomer
Loveless Domino Recording Co 1991
Much written about highlight of the shoegaze genre. Lyrics were indecipherable upon its release, despite the band claiming it spent more time writing lyrics than the music itself. Some bandmembers claim they don't know what was being sung despite this!
Mogwai Danphe and the Brain

First single from this Canadian punk band with This Heat influences. Changed its name to Preoccupations due to controversy surrounding their original band name.

Japanese punk rock trio known for blending different genres into its sound.
Marquee Moon Elektra Records 1977
Richard Hell was an original member of Television but kicked out due to unprofessionalism and not knowing (or refusing to learn) how to play guitar. My 1 year-old loves this cut! He should be asleep now.
The Boys Next Door The Nightwatchman
Door, Door WM Australia 1979
Only LP recorded by Nick Cave and company pre-Birthday Party. Not the most polished thing, but hinted at several directions Nick Cave would go in future decades.
The Clash Somebody Got Murdered
Sandinista! Sony Music UK 2013
What a beautiful mess of an album (a triple LP at that!). Joe Strummer's lyrics were influenced by the unfortunate stabbing and death of a parking valet. Senseless.
