Julie ocean - fabulous. My perfect cousin. Here comes the summer. Teanage kicks
A Fantastic and prolific band, if some of you only know "Nigel" then you know very little about XTC... Their Skylarking album produced by Todd Rundgren is one of the finest albums ever made, along with Drums and Wires and English Settlement... Brilliant songwriting! The song Dear God is one of my all time favourites... Courageous and brilliant!
"There is no language in our lungs" to describe how talented this band was in the 80's.V1 Comment
The best band of the 1980's. Period! The principal influence of...The Pixies, Nirvana and Green Day to mention but a few. One of the Huskers, Bob Mould, one of the world's greatest guitar players, is known as the Godfather of Grunge. Check out Zen Arcade; New Day Rising and Flip Your Wig. All 10/10.
THE BEST! A band that should have gotten more attention.
One of the most influential bands for decades. Should be in the top ten in my opinion...V4 Comments
Faces was a very good album, Raise was a good album, but after that, they simply did not replicate the brilliance of the Seventies work... Easily one of the best bands EVER! Their horn work is still legendary!
Does no one listen to their music? You must all be crazy!V2 Comments
This band can play much more technical music than EVERYONE ELSE in this listV2 Comments
I love this band so much me and my mom to see them when I was ten and can't stop loveing them all
Carol decker is a very good singerV1 Comment
Total classics... even used in AUSTIN POWERS
If the tragic live concert shooting had never happened these would have without doubt been the best 80's band ever.
Flesh and Blood was a great record and Avalon is one of the finest albums ever released. Bryan Ferry's albums Boys and Girls and Better Noire (during the Eighties) are two of the best albums ever! His '77 solo record In Your Mind is incredible as well!
May have started in the 70s but where still great in the 80s, always able to create their own style. And came into the 80s showing the kids they inspired just how things should be done, Flesh and Blood and Avalon underrated masterpieces
