#Listener's Mix - from Stu Deadbill
Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues: "What's Going On is possibly the greatest piece of complete music ever to be released. There's a vibe on Inner City Blues that makes you feel meloncholic but uplifted at the same time."
The Skids - The Saints are Coming: "Pure punk energy of Dunfermline's finest still makes me want to pogo on my bed like i'm 13 again."
The Who - Happy Jack: "When everyone was going for the hippy moment and flowers in their hair, four blokes from West London stick two fingers up to all that."
CAN - Vitamin C: "It's funk but not as we know it,and it has the most fantastic drumming."
Paul Weller - Into Tomorrow: "I love Weller. In fact my wife has accused me of loving him more than her at times which is a bit harsh but fair."
808 State - Pacific: "Memories of being immersed in the whole house/Madchester stuff and this sublime piece of music whenever i hear it still puts me back in a sweaty warehouse in Hackney."
