Episode #16: The Hit

In this episode, I feature a side from an EP that I won on eBay a few months ago.  I did some research and learned it was bundled with the first (and, as far as I can tell, only) issue of a British alternative rock magazine, The Hit, in 1985.  This particular side features a live recording by The Style Council of its soon-to-be-released hit, “Walls Come Tumbling Down,” and a just-record track that would later be issued on the first Jesus and Mary Chain album, Psychocandy.

Fall sounds.

Autumn has arrived.  The equinox was last week, but the grey skies and noticeably cooler temperatures hit today.  This is my favorite season for music; it’s when all those Manchester and 4AD bands really make sense.

My favorite fall album always changes, but this week, it’s been The Jesus and Mary Chain’s Darklands.

What are your favorite fall albums?
