Wayne County & the Electric Chairs were part of the first wave of punk bands from the 1970s. The band was headed by Georgia transgender woman, Wayne County,who later changed her name to Jayne County.
Wayne County played 'Lounge Lizard" in the first punk rock film, Derek Jarman's Jubilee, and the band performed "Paranoia Paradise" which also appeared on the Jubilee Soundtrack album,
Though she has never been a commercial success, she has been an influence on a number of musicians including David Bowie, the Ramones, Patti Smith, Pete Burns and Lou Reed and many of County's songs have become well-known, including "Are You Man Enough to Be a Woman", "Fuck Off", "Stuck on You," and "Night Time".
Pianist Jools Holland's first studio outing was with County on her single "Fuck Off". She also appeared as an actress at Andy Warhol's Factory.This is the remastered edition with a bonus EP

After years of drug addiction this classic album was released in 1981. There are 2 versions of this album...This is the first , apparently she sold the masters for $4000 to score drugs, and then re recorded the entire album again.This is an unknown masterpiece
She covers Bowie's Heroes and released that as a single but it didnt go anywhere.
Such a tragic waste Nico was. Anyhow this is the 2003 remaster which includes out takes from the album.
Pressed on 180 gm Vinyl

His 3rd solo album released in 1996.

a bit of history regarding this album. first released as Dreamchild in 1994
In 1997, the album was reissued by Receiver Records with a bonus tack from the Eternity (Madhatter sessions and renamed to Phoenix,
This album sees Toyah cascade her distinctive, purring vocals over a framework of ethereal electronica. Whilst Dreamchild is most definitely an ambient/dance album, it was born out of a proposed stage musical, Cindy X , also authored by Mike Bennett who produced this album. Toyah had virtually NO input into the songs
In 1997, the album was reissued by Receiver Records as Phoenix,
featuring an additional track of the same name taken from the otherwise unreleased "Eternity (Madhatter)" sessions, and radically different artwork. and in 2010 it was re released again with 5 bonus tracks. (i have ordered it last week) . This is the 97 release with 1 bonus song
Anyhow enjoy this album. such a radical departure for Toyah . I just wish she'd do more dance albums. World of Tension is my fav song from this.
Anyhows Merry Xmas eat be merry and get ready for 2017

The Dreaming is the fourth studio album by the English singer Kate Bush, released in 1982 via EMI Records. Recorded over two years, the album was produced entirely by Bush and is often characterized as her most unconventional and experimental release.
Bird impersonator Percy Edwards provided sheep noises on the title song. disgraced Rolf Harris plays the didgeridoo on the recording
Under rated and criminally ignored, this album is a natural stepping stone to her masterpiece Hounds Of Love. def not for everyone I act like it cos it is different to anything Bush had done before and since

A Secret Life is the twelfth studio album by English singer Marianne Faithfull. It was released on 21 March 1995 by Island Records. The album marked her first studio release composed mostly of original material in over a decade. Faithfull collaborated with American composer Angelo Badalamenti after his work on the television series Twin Peaks. Influenced by her interest in classical music, A Secret Life was a musical departure from her previous work and displayed a more tender side to her voice. The album combines bittersweet vocals with atmospheric and often gloomy tunes,Sleep,Flaming September,Losing and The Stars Line Up are chillingly beautiful. Marianne's torn voice tells us of despair and regret .The album's only sore point is The Wedding,which sounds rather irrelevant and out of place with the rest of the mood/
Bored By Dreams was released as a single and failed to chart
Tis a good album but not for everyone.

Go is the eleventh studio album, and twelfth album overall, by American rock singer Pat Benatar, released in the summer of 2003.Go" has Benatar returning to her rock roots, and overall is one her best albums in over a decade. Unfortunately apart from greatest hits compilations this is her last recorded output of new material.Best album since Wide awake in dreamland... couple hits n misses.. but that cos im unsure where and what she was doin or what she was aiming for like on Out Of the Ruins Album is now deleted and a reissue seems unlikely and commands pretty high prices.

Superb album from one of rocks greatest vocalists & show a different side & range of Graham Bonnets talents.
Remastered & expanded.
It’s easy to see why Ritchie Blackmore chose him to join Rainbow.
No Bad Habits has Graham in a more playful & pop mood. Again featuring a couple of classic covers in the forms of Bob Dylans I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight
as well as the Bee Gees Warm Ride, which was released as a single.Warm Ride is one of the best pop songs ever written and Bonnett is the only person who can sing this song altho written by the Bee Gees it is HIS SONG.There are 5 bonus tracks on this. Superb remastering and 2 of the bonus tracks are long versions of Warm Ride you get extended *Rock version and a Disco mix of Warm Ride. bahahahahah . Only reason I bought it

At last a 2 CD Anthology in chronological order of MOST of the singles.
Some of the trax included here were b sides like Hard Times,You Remind Me Of Gold so I am a bit puzzled as to why it is included.. Hard times was a popular track in the clubs and b side to Love Action...so that 1 does belong on this but not YRMOG.
Also some of the mixes here are previously unreleased..They could have just used the original 7" singles.... and fitted way more tracks on the discs hahahaha. Anyhow the songs sound as great as they did when first released..and show what a great band they were & still are

IT was also their biggest seller in the US. u couldnt get it here unless u paid big $ at the time for imported copy.It IS better than Beauty STab, that is crap

In 1993 Visage's biggest hit was remixed along with the reissue of Fade To Grey The Singles Collection. The 12" was removed and IMO wrecked a pretty good comp and put on Bassheads 7" remix of FTG....anything i guess for Polydor to make a quick buck. b'stards
The mixes on here do actually breathe new life into the song. esp track 6 which is my fav remix, and not avail on cd singles only on the 12: vinyl.

Released about a year after Time Capsule, Nude on the Moon: The B-52's Anthology is a two-CD compilation album containing 35 remastered songs recorded by The B-52's between the years 1979 and 1998.Much more comprehensive in chronological order
This compilation includes live recordings of "Quiche Lorraine" and "Whammy Kiss", and a previously unreleased outtake version of "Queen of Las Vegas".although Meet The Flintstones isnt on this.... Id have removed Whammy Kiss live and thrown that 1 in cos its a good song. Roccos Modern life theme also didnt make the cut to this comp either. grrrr
Rhino have done a fine job of remastering this compilation.

Back in 1979 Gary Numan WAS (Still is) the electronic maestro.
He singlehandedly spearheaded the electronic revolution which gave rise to the New Romantics.His name was like the forbidden amongst that crowd.the mere mention of his name was the ultimate sin hahahah anyhow when he decided to retire from music industry he gave a series of concerts. My late Mom took me to his CHRISTCHURCH gig. FANTASTIC is all I can say. He has lasted longer than any of those **Blitz Kids* who by the mid 80s were walkin round with drippin makeup running down their visages :P and thinkin they were still *IT** anyhow rant over hahahaha. The concerts were recorded and released on tape & vinyl.I had so many copies of this album on tape and vinyl. In 2005 however FINALLY he released this stunner on CD!. Discogs is my home. so many treasures @ great prices! Micomusic is the name of this album on DVD!
Link 1 is both discs broken up into individual tracks.
Link 2 is both discs as 2 files as theyre meant to be heard.

Released 1 album. 4 or 5 singles.. this was re released by Cherry Pop in 2007 containing 9 extra songs and renaming it to the best of Haysi Fantayzee!???. Haysi Fantayzee were formed in 1981 and consisted of Jeremy Healy who was a Blitzkid/club regular and Kate Garner, who fronted the "band" and Garner's boyfriend songwriter producer/manager Paul Caplin.The band released four singles in 1982 and 1983: "John Wayne is Big Leggy", "Holy Joe", "Shiny Shiny", and "Sister Friction", and an album, Battle Hymns For Children Singing.
The original plan had been for Garner to perform alone although the group never actually performed live. The band made a crude video performance. The song John Wayne is Big Leggy was banned cos of its ref to anal sex.. That is included here along with some extended mixes of it and shiny shiny which is the song theyre most known for. agh the 80s eh bahahahhaah

In 1983 H17 released their 2nd album The Lux3ury G3ap. It yielded the breakthru they had criminally been overlooked for on their debut 2 years earlier.Even the Leagues Hysteria is better! and that also is pretty shit!
I personally think,apart from 2 songs on this, this album is shit hahahah i really hate it, it did make them alot of $ hahahahahha (but it is shit,the cover says it all!!!!!! ) Penthouse & Pavement is one of the best albums ever,so innovative and they follow it with this shit? and apart from We Live So fast & Temptation, the album is something youd expect from Cliff Richard hahahahah. o did i forget to mention this album is shit?? This is the 2012 2 CD remaster .Anyhoooo

I want all the orig 7" singles/b-sides released by the band put onto either digital download / or a CD . cheers :P

The Golden Age of Wireless is the debut album by Thomas Dolby. Released in 1982, the album contains the pop hit "She Blinded Me with Science" in its later resequencings . Following the album's overall theme of radio are the songs "Airwaves", "Commercial Breakup", and "Radio Silence," along with songs about the modern world ("Windpower", "Flying North", "Europa and the Pirate Twins"). At the time of the original US release, the moody and cinematic tone—a major departure for most synthesizer-driven records—prompted Musician magazine's reviewer to declare it "The best damned synth-pop record ever, period This 2009 version includes the original UK album tracks, in sequence, as tracks 1-9. Bonus tracks 10-14 were previously included on various re-issues during 1982/83/84. Tracks 16-19 are previously unreleased demo recordings.

In 2011, EMI released this album in a Deluxe 2CD/DVD format.

White Door's producer, Andy Richards, went on to work with many top acts, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Sue Quin provided backing vocals. The members of White Door still tour as Grace.

Dirk Wears White Sox is the debut studio album by English new wave band Adam and the Ants. It was released on 30 October 1979 by record Do It. It holds the distinction of being the very first number one album on the UK Independent Albums Chart when the chart debuted in Record Week in 1980.The album was made with an early line-up of Adam and the Ants, which disbanded after the album was released. Guitarist Matthew Ashman and drummer David Barbarossa went on to form Bow Wow Wow with then-Ants bassist Leigh Gorman (who had only played one gig with the Ants and was not involved in any studio recordings). Original bassist Andy Warren had departed shortly after recording the album to join former Ants guitarist Lester Square in The Monochrome Set. Many of the songs, notably "Cleopatra" and "Never Trust a Man (With Egg on his Face)", remained a part of Adam Ant's live repertoire throughout his career, both with the Ants and later as a solo artist.
This is the 2004 remaster which contains 8 extra songs not on original release.
