I have known you for years and can confirm that you do actually listen to that rubbish. (Most of which I like, too :D )

Bossanova

Violator

The Cure's Mixed Up has a few lacklustre picks but the highlights made it worthwhile for me.

In the back of my mind, I was wondering if that was a '90s album and wanted to include it. I'm glad it got mentioned.

I included the single in the BCB cup once and it did well.
Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk!

It was certainly album of the year for me.

As I recall -

Goo
Eye
Gala
Bossanova
Pills, Thrills...


There's others that exist in more of a "No one can prove that I ever liked that!" realm (I'm positive I went to see things like the Soup Dragons and Dread Zeppelin at the time...)
