New Wave Heroines

He's back!
Back from holidays with about 30 CDs  from charity shops across Scotland to subject you to over the next few weeks.
Some good, some average, some awful.
I may intersperse them with other things including a new series I thought up while en vacances.

But first something I bought from my local charity shop just before we went.
I had popped in to get a Kid Creole CD I had seen a few days before but for some reason never bought. Needless to say it was gone so I came away with New Wave Heroes.
A forty song compilation for a quid. I already had about 75 to 80% of the tracks but it was worth it to get a physical copy of the ones I didn't have.
I'm featuring the ladies today Ari Up,Viv Albertine and Tessa Pollit from The Slits and Fay Fife from The Rezillos

The Slits - Typical Girls

Revillos - Top of the Pops


  1. Welcome back CC. 30 CDs? Blimey! I'm looking forward to hearing what you've picked up. You've kicked off on a very high note with today's tunes.

  2. Welcome back. Good to hear you've been spending your holiday money wisely.

  3. Looking forward to the awful ones.

  4. Welcome back and sounds like you got a good haul - Mr SDS does the charity shops every time he goes into town but the offerings round these parts are mostly quite paltry, unless you like Daniel O'Donnell....
    Nice choices today too - takes ya back!

  5. Welcome back! (Did you get me a souvenir gift?)

  6. Now that’s a loud return! Good to have you back, CC.

  7. Proper pair of tunes. Welcome back.

  8. Welcome back mate, hope you enjoyed your days off!
