An album that keeps bringing back memories. And it's got one of the best album covers I've ever seen.
2.) Some Friendly
A really consistent record, best if you listen to it as a whole.
3.) A Storm In Heaven
This album has got one of the best intros and best outros ever. The guitars on Star Sail and Slide Away blow your mind. It reminds me of my last days at school when I realized that life is not as good as it seems, really sad and boring. But this album is really good, worth a listen.

I've only just reacquired this album, but feelings are pretty much still the same as when I bought it on vinyl all those years ago when it came out: Leave Them All Behind, Chrome Waves and OX4 are all great, but the rest is very pale compared to Nowhere. Ah, takes me back to the days of band logos inscribed on my satchel in biro!

I was 20 - an adult. Of sorts. I had been in employment for a year. I maintained contact with many of my old school friends, and during those days my pleasure was derived at the end of a pint glass with most of them. The yin yang of responsible adulthood and the irrelevance of youthful exuberance. My days were spent at work, my nights and weekends in a drunken mess of silliness. Much of the remainder was spent, quite diligently, in music.
The NME, the Melody Maker and John Peel on the radio.
I would go out, be it the pub, a party or a nightclub, always wearing (if dress codes allowed) a music based t-shirt. That was my identity. I would be somewhere, often a place far removed from the world of indie, often a drunken mess amongst neon lights and the latest 'club' sounds of the day, enjoying myself with my peers yes, but also showing my true colours, telling the world who I really was and what really motivated, connected and excited me, secretly hoping that someone would somehow recognise everything going on my head…
