Just been listening to Soul Mining in the car, picked it up with Infected for £3.99 each from HMV.Will have a proper listen tonight.I used to have all there stuff on tape but lost all my tapes a few years ago. What a great band, should have had more success.

Anyone else like em or not come to that?

Uncertain smile is a classic track. Matt Johnson was always a tadge political and that probably cost him some popularity.

Feckin brilliant band , Matt Johnson had some pulling power with quality musicians for his Lp's anawl , Joolz Holland , Zeke Manyika and Johnny Marr.

Made some excellent , but as Duvet said , Political Albums , I like Mind Bomb but Soulmining is a classic IMO.

Great lyricist.

A mate of mine from school was a big The The fan, he also had a terrible stammer. Typical ha.

Do I win £5.00?

Have to agree also Talk Talk ; The colour of spring sounds good as a test disc when deming new kit , also good chill out album.

Think I have 3 copies on vinyl coz couldn't resist for a pound , one of which has a sticker saying Manufacturers copy not for public sale , good ole Oxfam.:)

Chezi have you got Spirit of Eden . I think its as good as Colour of Spring if not better. After that point Hollis starts losing the plot and eventually disappears up his arsehole but what great albums
