James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Younger – Part 11: Kasabian

Today is the turn of the letter ‘K’ in my A-Z retrospective of albums from the noughties. And that’s OK. Well part of OK anyway. And, like so many debut albums of the noughties, it’s another eponymous one. K is for Kasabian When Kasabian released their debut album in 2004, they were often touted as…

James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Younger – Part 10: Jarvis

It’s time for ‘J’ in my A-Z of albums I liked from the noughties. I struggled with this letter for last year’s 90s retrospective but there were no such problems this year. Indeed I had a couple of potential choices but one album from 2006 had selected itself before I even started compiling my list.…

James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Young – Part 25: You’ve Come A Long Way Baby

It’s the penultimate day of the A-Z challenge 2020 and it’s time to ask ‘Y’. Specifically we must ask ‘Y’ to tell us what today’s album is. It wasn’t easy.

I’d have thought that was abundantly clear from the way I just cleverly substituted the letter ‘R’ for the word ‘are’ above. And then…

James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Young – Part 16: Pablo Honey

If only there were a way to get to the sixteenth letter of the alphabet without referencing the immortal Blockbusters joke, “I’ll have a ‘P’ please Bob” But there isn’t, so I did. Obviously the above reference may mean nothing to you, particularly if you didn’t watch the quiz show Blockbusters in the 80s and…

James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Albums That He Liked To Listen To When He Was Young – Part 8: How To Make Friends And Influence People

It’s always been my personal belief that the eighth letter of the alphabet should be ‘H’. Which it is. I’m not saying I’m responsible for that fact. That’s not for me to say. If others wish to credit me then that’s up to them. But, which album has the honour of representing ‘H’ today? H…
