    "Don't Talk" by 10000 Maniacs just being played on Teatime Themetime on the Radcliffe and Maconie Show on BBC6 Music.

    Had forgotten just what an absolutely cracking track it is. Takes me right back to 1988......what a voice that Nathalie Merchant has:cool:
     
  2. Our Time in Eden is one of my all-time favourite albums

    One of the great London music venues. Seen many a concert there over the years.

    Loved the raised back section and bar at the back.

    1988 I seemed never out of the venue - The Primitives, All About Eve, Darling Buds, 10000 Maniacs....that 87/88 scene.

    Great times.

    She`s great. I saw her at The Sage a few years ago where she pretty much performed her whole new album which hadn`t been released at the time (If I recall correctly) but even with unfamiliar material she sounded wonderful.

    Just spotted this beauty too to mop up the gaps in my collection:

    Saw them in Glasgow around 89, I think. Blind Man's Zoo tour. She's a talent with a unique voice. This girl's voice reminds me of her at times

    Saw them at a small club in London, maybe 1992. The Orange or something similar. On drums was Max Weinberg from the E-Street band. Had to apply for tickets by post, blank cheque, SAE, hand printed tickets...seems a lifetime ago.
