    This thread is very disconcerting for me. So far, justbill is the only person who seems to be even close to my age. Although his list does not reflect my HS years, it does relate to my college time and I think it is a great list for not only then but as of today as well.

    Janes Addiction - Nothings Shocking, Ritual de lo Habitual
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Mother's Milk, Blood Sugar Sex Magic
    Ramones - Loco Live

    They may have not been the most popular picks for my time in High School, but they definitely got enough airplay in my room. I actually remember turning up the music to Nothing's Shocking: Ted Just Admit It to try and cover up the sound of me making phone calls while browsing through the pages of Screw looking for my first incall.

    Genesis/ Gruppo Sportivo

    Hey robnotbob-

    My Japanese import (!) copy of Duke says 1980 on it-

    and you're right- you can definitely tell someone's age from the albums they listed!

    Hey thevenerablebede-

    Not too many people are familiar with Gruppo Sportivo so congratulations!
    Have you ever heard any of their import albums? Pick up "pop! goes the brain" if you can find it! It's been really hard to find any of their stuff on CD!

    Best,

  20. Gruppo Sportive was a Dutch New Wave band from the late 70s/early 80s. Mistakes was a compilation of their first two records and was released on Sire around 1979. Can still hear them from time to time on WFMU.
