I love a bit of noise me.

From their first album from back in 1993.

The Nirvana influence is apparent as the young lads learn their craft and develop their unique sound.

A corker of a track, full of music with shedloads of bounce and noise!

A wonderful record now playing:

Image

I saw the lad and this band on the John Peel Show at The Paris Studios/Theatre

It is a real shame that so many of the concert tapes were reused and recorded over back in those days.

This is one I would love to have released for posterity.

An incredible gig with an incredible band. I was right at the front about 8 feet away from Graham where he played, on occasions, organ and saxophone at the same time. I had never seen that!

I also would've liked to hear Graham's between song ramblings to Peely about the dangers of dabbling with 'Black Magic' a reference and warning to both Black Sabbath and Black Widow!

It's criminal to think that so much great music was lost by over-recording tapes just to save a bit of money!

Such a talent and such a tragedy that he threw himself under a tube train, at Finsbury Park, three years later.

Check this album out - IT ROCKS!!

I like a bit of Golden Earring. Got Moontan and six others, which has just amazed me as I didn't realise I had so many, but not the other two you posted. Just looked through their catalogue they seem to have made a huge number of albums.

Need a little Zep every now and again, this fits the bill nicely.

So much better than both the stripped down 1976 version and the remixed 2010 version.

Whatever was Oldfield thinking....?

Solid album with some really nice melodies from Scottish prog band Comedy of Errors. Always a pleasant band to listen to.

Not as big a fan as C but they are a solid band - nothing very predictable about them and always slightly on the edge. 1st time I've played this one. Decent.

I think C described them as "the mighty Audience" recently. I wouldn't go that far but it's a fine album.

I think this is the only album of theirs that I have ever played and don't recall seeing any others referenced on here. Which is their next best?

Friends Friends Friend and Lunch have been mentioned a few times here. Both are worthy but House On The Hill is probably their best.

Can't stand the Crunge, apart from that it's a fine album, not their best by any means though. How come you're showing a blue cover for this, is this the remastered version from 5 or 6 years ago now with some alternative tracks?

Yes, I have deleted The Crunge from my playlist as it happens!

And yes, it is the remaster with alternative mixes as bonus tracks.

Probably my 2nd fave after PG.
