Surf and Burn
The Blue Stingrays
The Tom Petty Band messing around and making some awesome atmospheric surf.
The only album ever made by a surprisingly cool Scottish soul/rock singer, who sang in pubs for a while and then died. Deep lyrics, good music, check it out.
FUCK anybody who has a problem with the sappy lyrics, the man was a damned good guitarist and composer. You may have heard Lucifer's Cage.
The Cycle Breed
Davie Allan and The Arrows
If you don't specifically know who these guys are, you probably won't like the music. If you do, this is my favorite collection.
I'm not really into ska, but the Rudiments have always been okay by me.
Respect the Dead
The Stellar Corpses
One of the better blatant Misfits-knockoffs.
Best before 2000
Damned good (and underrated) punk band, damned good compilation.
The Jon Jorgenson Quintet
Some of Jon's nicest psuedo-gypsy guitar work, particularly the lively Ghost Dance (which has seen some nice airtime on National Public Radio).
First Daze Here Too: The Vintage Collection
You like early Black Sabbath? Good news. You'll like Pentagram. Better news: they finally came out with a new collection.
Roar to the Core
Yeah, I've talked about it before. Sue me. Very, very good 80's British New Wave Guitar. Very, very raw quality. Very, very bad singer. Listen at your own risk.
Walker: The Soundtrack
Another one I've already talked about. So anyway, uh, Joe Strummer. End of conversation.
IT'S A GOOFY BALL, MATTHEW. NOT A SUPER COMPUTER.
