Voted Mutiny as its the best of all the many pfunk spin offs and indeed as good as any of the mid period funkadelic (even clinton says so)

Thus Spoke Darraghustra (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 3 April 2019 13:03 (two months ago) Permalink

Either Unknown Pleasures or Metal Box. I don't mind Pink Floyd's absence this time around.

Voted for Jacko with a slightly heavy heart.

1979 was a much better year for singles than for albums imho.

does it look like i'm here (jon123), Wednesday, 3 April 2019 13:11 (two months ago) Permalink

I actually barely know any of these. Will explore!

Unknown Pleasures or Off The Wall, instinctively, with Rust Never Sleeps and This Heat close behind.

A weirdly high number of 'The' bands?

Own: Bowie, Gang Of Four, Japan, Joy Division, Magazine, Pere Ubu, PiL, Stiff Little Fingers, Swell Maps, Talking Heads, The Damned, The Fall, The Jam, The Pop Group, The Raincoats, The Ruts, The Slits, The Specials, The Undertones, Wire

F*ck me sideways, so many of these hold a special place in my heart. Many of them I came to love much later - I hated The Fall and The Pop Group the first time I heard them! Wire, PiL, The Ruts, The Specials, The Slits - these are epochal LPs.

But it was Gang Of Four's "Entertainment" that absolutely took my head off the first time I heard it, and I still adore every second of it. So that one.

lots of good albums here, but this one is easy for me - Fear of Music

Dan S, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 17:54 (two months ago) Permalink

Gut vote is Entertainment!: oblique strokes of word and music, latter more compelling but it all fits at a slant: stick figure lightning strike Godard pop appeal (AKA what Gerald said upthread). Also gritty and sweaty enough on occasion (also check the Peel Sessions EP of some of these tracks). Almost a tie with Tales of Captain Black, and Neil & CH, Funkadelic, Clash, TRB etc. in Top Ten.

here were so many great albums from 1978-1981

I remember in 1980 or 81 visiting my sister and her older boyfriend in Austin and being driven out into the middle of nowhere - seemed like it took hours - into some vast desert landscape to visit a friend of theirs. Drums and Wires was blasting from the stereo. I was such an odd disconnect and I fell in love with it instantly

also remember the Rickie Lee Jones album being a favorite at the time, and I got to meet her!

I'm surprised no one here seems to know of Graham Parker. I actually saw him live opening for someone circa 1986 - "Wake Up (Next to You)" was a US hit around that time. I was unfamiliar with most of his work but enjoyed it.

This is maybe the first year I remember actually hearing these records when they were new, though many of my faves which skew toward pure pop aren't here. Am I the only one who like's Led Zeppelin's In Through the Out Door? How about Steve Forbert's Jackrabbit Slim? And yeah, the B-52's and Van Morrison should have been here.

There's been a UFO album on a bunch of these lists. Am i missing out by being completely unfamiliar with this band?

Anyway, Tusk for the win.

Numan's backing band circa '81 formed Dramatis after Numan announced his "retirement", but none of its members were on Tubeway Army or Replicas. Paul Gardiner (who was) continued to work with Numan on 'Stormtrooper in Drag' etc. and Jess Lidyard (the drummer on those records) featured on Dance. None of the members of Dramatis had any legal claim to the name Tubeway Army.

When the "Dramatis" album was reissued by Charly records, it was renamed "The Dramatis Project" and the artist name became "Tubeway Army Featuring Gary Numan"

(Gary sang/wrote one track)

Mark G, Wednesday, 10 April 2019 14:43 (two months ago) Permalink

Yes, that's correct, but you're talking about a re-release of an album which was then 19 years old and neither Numan nor Dramatis had anything to do with it. It was completely misleading, and Dramatis were actually pissed off about it.

Also, Numan only sang on 'Love Needs No Disguise', he didn't have anything to do with the writing of it.
