Recollection Collection......musical memories recalled with affection!
Firstly, while Flycasual is away....I get to post a track that I love....
"Don't Change" is an absolute classic that sounds as good today as it did then (it featured originally on the album 'Shabooh Shoobah'). It wasn't the first track I ever heard by INXS, but it was one of their earliest songs that really cemented their place as my favourite band as a teenager. It had a synth intro, punky edge, 80's 4/4 beat and a singer so charismatic you wanted to grow your hair long and get a perm (I did 50% of that).
In school, INXS were MY band, I played the albums "Original Sin", "Kick" & "X" to death. They were rock stars, their songs featured in "The Lost Boys" and not to forget the Kick album cover featured a Skateboard (it's a Vision Psycho stick) all of which was important to a 13yr old teenager. As I got older their appeal started to wane, but I always bought their albums and followed any news about the band. (before the 'net!) So when I heard in 1997 that Michael Hutchence died...I was gutted. My first rock star gone....
Last year I heard this by Beck - it should help you remember the greatness of the band! Here are two tracks from that session that you need to hear - "Calling All Nations" & "New Sensation"
