This week's Memory Tape comes from Katie Anderson, and is another story of an inspirational friend/influence as Katie explains...


"I, like many others, was introduced and inspired by (probably illegal) mix tapes compiled by my friends.


"My transforming mix tape - lovingly covered in Laura Ashley type pre-Raphaelite paper hiding the hideous C60 paper they used to wrap them in was called 'Some Music for Katie' and was made my trendy friend Mandy, at the time an art student.


I reckon around 1988? Oh it brings back such good memories. I still treasure the tape - and Pixies are still my favourite ever band now."


The track list is:


House of Love - Christine

Stone Roses - Fools Gold

Cocteau Twins - Pearly Dewdrops drops

Pixies - Velouria & Make Believe

Biff Bang Pow - She paints

The Jazz Butcher - Lot 49

Faith No More - We Care a Lot

Throwing Muses - Soul Soldier

The Chameleons - Sun, sea and Silence

Lush - Deluxe

Pixies - Alison

Sugercubes - Regina

The The - The Uncertain Smile

The Breeders - Fortunately Gone

Felt - Ballad of the Band
