I went through my vinyls and had a look, which ones still do it for me and which ones don’t. It was an interesting question, though I found no singular pattern.

Here are my lists:
The ‚Oh No’ list includes mostly stuff out of the 80’s: The Cure, Japan, Killing Joke, Madness, David Bowie [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img], Nick Cave, Wedding Present, Sugarcubes/ Björk.

The ones I still feel fond for are more mixed(have I got to mention Dinosaur Jr?)
MBV, JAMC, Gun Club, The Fall, The Go-Betweens, John Cale/ Velvet Underground, Big Star, and early 80’s stuff as well like the Associates, the Specials and the B 52’s.

A third list generated itself out of punk records like the Birthday Party, the Swell Maps, Clash, Sex Pistols or the Ramones. I still feel much respect for these records, but do not listen to them more than very once in a while. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they’re out of an area before ‘my time’. They’re more like history to me.

The titles out of my CD collection mostly are too new to estimate them like this. Here I go with Salamiguy [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img]
