On The Riot Trail

On The Riot Trail

My first mix of 2018 is self-explanatory. It contains 20 crucial and sometimes riotous songs all released between 1988 and 1990. Many of these were first heard on the Dave Fanning show and were lovingly preserved on a variety of C90s. Around the same time, Network 2 were airing the excellent Degrassi Junior High on Thursday nights. I used to watch it on the black and white portable in our kitchen.

01 Pere Ubu – Waiting For Mary
02 Camper Van Beethoven – Eye Of Fatima (Part 1)
03 The Pursuit Of Happiness – She’s So Young
04 Psychedelic Furs – All That Money Wants
05 The Connells – Stone Cold Yesterday
06 Hoodoo Gurus – Come Any Time
07 Robyn Hitchcock and The Egyptians – Madonna Of The Wasps
08 Michael Penn – No Myth
09 The Ocean Blue – Between Something And Nothing
10 1927 – When I Think Of You
11 Ian McCulloch – Proud To Fall
12 Peter Murphy – Cuts You Up (Edit)
13 The Church – Metropolis
14 The Chills – Heavenly Pop Hit
15 Love and Rockets – So Alive
16 The Jeremy Days – Brand New Toy
17 Rainbirds – Sea Of Time
