I decided yesterday (21/04/2019) to create a box of singles that represents my music listening life up to 1983, when I turned 16. The box will contain 7″ singles that I either owned, wanted or that friends owned and each one will have a note explaining why it is in the box. I will, eventually, give it to my son so that he can put it in the attic, forget about it and one day throw it away without looking at it when having a clear out.
Condition is not an issue, I’m not trying to create a box of mint condition singles, they just need to be playable.
In The Box:
Toyah – IEYA
The Beatles – Revolution
Siouxsie and the Banshees – Christine
Tubeway Army – are ‘friends’ electric?
Blondie – Dreaming
The Beat – Hands Off She’s Mine
The Clash – Tommy Gun
Public Image Ltd – Public Image
XTC – Sense Working Overtime
