Greatly influenced by one of my elder brothers I purchased Public Enemy's Yo Bum Rush the Show on tape... I didn't have a record player in my bedroom and CD's were for the rich (I was a kid on a below-minimum pocket money allowance). Then I discovered the local library and to my amazement they had quite a few hip hop albums on tape and CD. This is where the pirating began Again an 11 year old doesnt really know the laws of copyright (I used to even photocopy the tape/cd sleeves...)
Cool CD I've got that one too, by the late 80's it was MC Tunes & 808 State and Beasties for me as well.
As for the British stuff it was Cash Crew, Caveman, SilverBullet, Hijack, MC Duke, RRA... Good times for British Hip Hop...
first single I ever bought was from Woolworths (LOL) and was something by Depeche Mode. (can't remember what now) - otherwise it was Madness - Tomorrow's (Just Another Day) - which a quick Google tells me was released in 1983
Had to put this one on, I named my daughter after it! Eloise by the Damned. CLASSSSSSSSS!!!!
Love that track, must have been the tour they did around the same time that I saw them (not quite old enough to be a proper punk ), Dave Vanian bought his girlfriend on stage to sing smash it up, she was VERY well dressed not at all punk, so we all gobbed on her as you do and he totally threw his toys out the pram stropped off and wouldn't do an encore. Think he was still pissed off that Dr and the Medics got loads of encores, just not the done thing for a support act.

When I was 11 years old (that was in 1968), I bought the single : "Sunny Afternoon / I'm not like everybody else". This must be the first one i really "bought", before that I got some singles as presents from my parents : some French singers and also Hair (Aquarius), Zager & Evans (In the Year 2525), etc... After that first Kinks single, I bought zillions of others. My first 3 albums were : Cosmos Factory (Creedence Clearwater Revival), Dylan's greatest hits and Beatles' Let it be (this was their last album and my first by them, i bought it on the very day it was released ! )... I still have those records in my collection. Actually, I still listen to much more vinyls than CDs ( I hate Cds !) as I have more than 2000 vinyl albums and about as many singles and EPs ! For a longer list of the bands and musicians I like, have a look at my myspace page : www.myspace.com/jefaerosol And for much more words and pics about the music I've loved for more than 40 years, read my book !

ps : listening to "Travellin Band" (Creedence CR) right now ! After all these years, I just can't get fed up with that music !

Eloise by the Damned hehehe ! I have the original single by Barry ryan, the composer of that song, I bought it after my Kinks, in 1968 ! I loved that song and remember being quite disappointed by the Damned's version...
