I have a soft spot for that music. It reminds me of trading tapes with people at lunch time in High School.

Oh, now you're making me wax nostalgic... Echo & the Bunnymen, Flesh for Lulu, The Church, & hey-- remember a now obscure band Cactus World News? -- oh they were a great band!

It's funny- I was really nostalgic for Gene Loves Jezebel the other night.

I don't remember Cactus World News, but I will look them up!
