I had an itsybitsy inkling that many of you will get a bit of a kick out of this one. Which of you people still have their Alternative Malta CD?
I never had a copy, until yesterday “Gail, Stuart Murdoch’sPotential Wifey” (that nick is fooling no-one, lady) landed her copy nonchalantly in front of me. So it’s nostalgia time
I want to know your stories.
Which track evokes the strongest memories?
Which band was/is your favourite and why?
In my case, Lumiere and Hunter’s Palace take top spot. Together with Xtruppaw, despite the fact that Diska Cool Ghar-Radio is my second least favourite Xtruppaw song.
Ironically, it’s Diska Cool Ghar-Radio that evokes the strongest memory response for me. Not because of any particularly memorable gig, though there were those too, of course. But because this particular track happened to be the one playing at the office when I announced that I was moving to pastures new after some 8 long years editing a magazine called Sunday Circle.
For a while, it was the song of freedom.
So – I’ve told you mine. Now tell me yours.
Ps – thank you, Stuart Murdoch’s Potential Wifey!
