Here is the Hot 100 according to people who shop at Fop...

I like Dexys, Bowie, Teenage Fanclub and Leonard Cohen - there's a whole load of bands in that list that I've never heard of

I bought the Pixies and Radiohead LPs but was rather underwhelmed with both.

I would usually buy Death in Vegas, Primal Scream, and Underworld albums but never got round to getting any of these 2016 releases.

The Underworld set at Glastonbury this year was excellent.

I think The Pixies have got some more good albums in them.

What I heard of Iggy Pop's last album was great.

Harry, I would love the Pixies to get back to the quality of the early LPs (Come on Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, and Doolittle).

Head Carrier has a few really good tracks (much better than the solo albums from Frank Black), but it is not quite the return to form I was hoping for.

Maybe I am getting too old - it has been a long time since I was really excited by a new release.

Blur's Under The Westway, Horace's Goa Blues, and Butch Cassidy Sound System's Rockers Galore are the last singles that immediately stand out - and that is going back quite a few years.
