1995 was a golden year in my budding journey as a record collector. At seventeen years old I had barely twenty albums to my name but was greedily lapping up as much new music as my free time would allow. Which, as I happily underachieved my way through college, turned out to be quite a lot!
I fell for loads of bands that year, partly due to the irrepressible enthusiasm of youth. But also because there were some ******* great records! (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Different Class, The Great Escape, Stanley Road, I Should Coco, Grand Prix, Elastica, Ben Folds Five, A.M.
