So this year I plan to try and listen to more of the music I have on the ipod, as opposed to the same thing again and again.
Breeders - last splash : better than expected, not actually a one hit wonder.
New Model Army - no rest for the wicked : not quite sure what the point of this is.  I wasn't into them back in the day so only know them for "Vagabonds" and I don't think I will listen to them again.
PIL - album (live at Brixton) : Strop spitting you London Cunts.
Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars : makes the rest of my record collection shuffle their feet with embarrassment.  Most artists would retire after an album like that, how do you do better than this?  Potentially top five Bowie material.

I set it to shuffle in the car - so its like a radio station that only plays music I own.

^ I want to avoid the kids' music though.  (Also, there's an uneven distribution of music and probably a 10% chance that the song will be "Rebel Rebel" by Bowie.)

I don't know why I bother, no one listens to me anyway; i might as well be a Leonard Cohen record!  You want it Darker.

The Velvet Underground & Nico.  Up until now I knew the songs, but only as covers.

Now you have to go out and form a band.  Apparently it's compulsory, or so says Brian Eno.

Indeed, especially as I also listen to the Pixies and the Pistols.  I am continually amazed that not only am I not in a band, I don’t even own an instrument I can’t play.

I was thinking about some of his lyrics just yesterday - immensely subversive, no way you'd let your kids listen to that these days (I must have been ... 6?).

Oh, and Pink Flag by Wire (it's before my time, but it just seems like paint by numbers punk) and PTF by VNV Nation (only 23 years old though).

When you tire of the Post-punk angry, swearyness try these local lads.  Same style, just not as sweary and better tunes https://yardact.bandcamp.com/
I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

Sandy Denny, and Oysterband.

Separately, of course.

Followed by Captain Beefheart explaining how he is going to zip up his guitar.

An album of Gert Wilden's themes from 70s German pornos.

The fact that such a thing exists makes me smile.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
