You Sexy Thing: The IB Period Playlist

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

March 1988.  Pretty good top 40.  Kylie number 1, but also has these 3 which are more my style and still listen to them now.  I'd just started my GCSEs and sported a Morrissey quif, though by the end of 1988 I'd grown that out into curtains and turned baggy.

Morrissey - Suedehead 

Echo and the Bunnymen - People are strange

 

Crash - The Primitives.

Awesome sister sledge! they came to sing to a party my boss organized, absolutely fantastic!

February '82

 

Many many moons ago I used to sing in a band, we were all broke students so we could only afford late night studio time (11.00pm to 06.0am).  We used to arrive at the Studio early to see who was rehearsing. One particular night, we had The Jam in one studio and Boney M in the other. What we found was quite astonishing, The Jam's session was very profession, they did a full 60 minute set, stopping occasionally to reset their instruments, cues, etc.  When we popped our heads into Boney' M's studio we could just make out the singers set around a central core of mics due to the marijuana haze, I KID YOU NOT!

1977. Easy by the Commodores. Lionel doing his thing while those on the line at Porsche were busy putting Scarlett together. Loving the nostalgia of this thread 👌

I like to think (sort of) I helped launch Salt-N-Pepa's UK career...... I was working at Wembley stadium for the BBC at the Nelson Mandela tribute concert where they were due to be launched on the 'side' stage. Nobody cue'd them in the TV truck and then I heard the main stage host cue them up, they ran on stage and I ran even faster directly across stage to hit the PLAY key on the 1/4" (it was that long ago) tape machine that played the backing track.....

They went on to become highly successful, I'm still here, no 80% for small Ltd companies (separate thread....)

Chris.

I played sessions and deps around London in the 80s/90s: was amazing who you’d end up sharing rehearsal space with. Recorded in a studio just off Hammersmith one night and Thomas Dolby was next door. High point at the time as his production was my favourite.

A mate was a mastering engineer at Pye Marble Arch so we recorded in very exalted company there. He then moved to the Hit Factory so we shared studios with Kylie 😀

Love it

Great choice @PeterK - Irish bluesmen FTW. Gary and Rory Gallagher were heroes of most of us Irish schoolboys back in the day.

In 1984 I was a student in Liverpool cruising around in my 1.6 Mk2 Capri , 2 tone (brown & gold), ridiculous front spoiler and a 2.0 head with twin choke Webber in a forlorn quest for more power! My 930 was cruising the street of South West London but a distant dream for me. 

My choice is Bruce Springsteen - I’m on Fire. A banger, just like my Capri.

No 1 when my SC was being handed over to its first owner (Brian May - but unfortunately not the Brian May) on 22 April 1982: Ebony and Ivory

Luckily for music lovers, there is some editorial control being exercised 😀 👍🏻
