Nor me. I’ve long got the feeling he doesn’t really ‘do’ mainstream

28 - Love Unlimited - Under the Influence of Love

33 - John Cale - I Keep a Close Watch
34 - Nico - Desertshore (album)

That Rammstein album sounds very THB/JFPL'ish

I've been slowly making my way through this.

My biggest takeaway so far is that early Tom Jones is actually great. The Wah, I can definitely see the Manics falling in love with that. The jump from Jara to the artist following him was a bit like the last Simon & Garfunkle on your mp3 player giving way to Stone Sour. There's actually loads, and it's equal parts a fascinating insight into what makes JDB JDB, a splendidly curated adventure in New music, and just really enjoyable.

On that note, cheers for taking the time to compile it and share it with us, uef. I really appreciate it.

I thought the same, about Tom Jones. Some bangers on that.

Not sure about the 6 songs for Democracy, guessing some of the appeal is the old fashioned “album” format it came in...
