Trout Mask Replica. I'd somehow got to the age of 52 and never heard it. Well, I have now and... well I think I like it.

Also as per Bill Goodman above, Regina Spektor. Not normally my kind of thing but her newest album is addictive.

I've started reading the book by Roger Shepard about Flying Nun (the record label) so have started listening to some of the bands. I live 40km from where it all started, but the whole Flying Nun thing skipped me in my years of youth, so catching up now.
I've started slow, so just sticking with The Clean, which I'm really really liking, and The Gordons, which I also really like, but not quite as much as The Clean.

As far as Flying Nun bands go, in addition to The Clean and The Gordons, anyone who likes Frank Black/Pixies should also check out The Chills, The Verlaines, Tall Dwarfs, and The Bats.

The Dead C had a release or two on there. Their work is decidedly not for everyone, but undeniably unique. Their new album, Trouble, is actually quite excellent for those who like noise and free improvisation.

I am properly listening to This Heat's first record. I really got into Deceit about 7 years ago and totally overlooked this album. I can't believe it was released in 1979. Seems so ahead of the game.

Been listening the Feelies 1986 album The Good Earth, sounds like it could have been released anytime, sounds so fresh.

If you haven't heard them I recommend them highly. For comparison's sake like a mix of jangly 80's REM and the Velvet Underground.

I actually had got a Verlaines cd out from the library the day before you posted this, and I've given that a few spins and it's really good.
The Chills are definitely on my to-do list right near the top, and will work my way through the others in time. Am very conscious of not being a wham-dam-thank-you-mam kinda guy with this....

The Feelies' Crazy Rhythms is an absolute classic. Their other records are great too.

The Chills collection Kaleidoscope World has some fantastic tracks. The Clean anthology and the Tall Dwarfs' Hello Cruel World and Fork Songs are musts, too.

There was a time I listened to that album a lot..! I had the version with Paint It Black at the end.

"...Perpetual Nervousness...Fa CÚ-La..." It was a lot of fun to listen to.

cheers

If you ever watch the movie Something Wild with Ray Liotta and Melanie Griffith, it's pretty weird because The Feelies play the band at their high school reunion and they play songs from Crazy Rhythms.

The Feelies have a new album out this month on the 24th. Think they're playing around north east area in April too. Would love to see them but they don't tend to travel/tour outside the US.

And on the subject, anyone who has the chance to go to an upcoming Miracle Legion show should definitely go.

Spacemen 3 - never realized how good they were.

Fiery Furnaces - thanks to whoever it was who recommended them.

And, sorry to lower the tone, but loads of early 70's stuff as well: Hawkwind, Amon Dul, Can etc.

The Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy by Gong has been getting a lot of play on my turntable lately. Classic albums: Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg, and You. I posted about Gong on here YEARS ago and it was met with a fairly lukewarm reception. Give it another go, y'all.

Cardiacs - Sing To God. One of my all time favourites, a double album that came out in 1996 but I only discovered it a few years ago. Barely a week goes by when I don't stick it on. Utterly glorious, giddy, sprawling madness.

The Sea Nymphs - On The Dry Land. Cardiacs spin-off band's second album from 1992, unreleased until last year. A quieter, pastoral version of Cardiacs really. Just great though.

Dutch Uncles - Big Balloon. They sound very Sparks/XTC influenced to me & very 80's in places. Good stuff anyway.

I'm shuffling all my Daniel Johnston songs today. I'm in one of those moods.
