An Introduction

I first became interested in 4AD, a UK independent record label founded in 1980, towards the end of the '80's. I was falling in love with the music of Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, Pixies, Bauhaus and The Birthday Party and was surprised when the 4AD label sampler "Lonely Is An Eyesore" came out in 1987 that all these bands were from the same label.

After visiting a Pre-Raphaelite exhibition of some American's collection of art, I came to thinking of all this musical art that 4AD have released that may one day drift into obscurity unless someone shows it as art. So now I'm on a crusade, to collect the first ten years of 4AD's releases and exhibit the collection on 4AD's 50th anniversary in 2030. This is a big task which will have some interesting twists and turns along the way.

Celebrating 1000 views

We have hit a huge milestone. Well, for me it’s a huge milestone. There has been a thousand views of this blog since it’s beginning. That may not seem like much to some, but for me it’s a minor miracle. I was extremely excited by having 20 views, and then 50 views. I never expected this amount of interest at all. A big thank you to everyone that has taken a look at this blog, many many thanks to those that have returned for a second or third read. A big sloppy kiss to those that have signed up to this blog and a humble and subservient puppy like leg humping to the two great people that have took time to leave a comment.

I have been away on holiday for the last couple of weeks, but hope to regularly get back to updating this blog, starting with a top 10 4AD albums
