Wanted

Personal Favourites:

Apart from the bands currently on my list, I listen to almost everything across the musical spectrum. Funnily enough, ageing into my 30s has increased my curiosity rather than diminish it; so no Celine Dion and other thirty-something traps. In fact, the more “left of the dial”, the better.

Wants:

In general, I’m always looking for guitar sounds, power-pop bands, 80s post-punk indie bands. Email me with your list. In particular, I’m looking for:

The Replacements: Anything not currently listed.

Paul Westerberg: Shows not currently listed, and clones off master tapes.

1970s – 1980s power pop: Any live shows by The Action, The Plimsouls, Dramarama, Continental Drifters, Dwight Twilley, 20/20, Peter Case, The Nerves, Marshall Crenshaw, Jim Carroll Band, Tommy Tutone, Tonio K, True West, The Rationals, The Real Kids, The Connells, The Records etc.
