From that decade that will forever be remembered for Wham! and U2, I often like to remind myself that there always is an alternative.

Prefab Sprout - The Golden Calf

House of Love - Christine

Triffids - Wide Open Road

Go-Betweens - Was There Anything I Could Do?

Violent Femmes - Add It Up

Magazine - Song From Under The Floorboards

Nice choices. Nice to see the Go Betweens and the Triffids. I loved quite a lot of what was coming out of Australia in early/mid 80s (Hoodoo Gurus, the Church etc)

You're right Jams - I was always a big fan - The ozzies are still producing some odd and eclectic beauties - check out Augie March - Moo You Bloody Cow... supurb
