Here is my self imposed mission, should I choose to accept it. 26 letters of the alphabet. 26 bands, one for each letter. A mix tape that can't be longer than 80 minutes. This is not my favourite band starting with each letter, but just a collection of bands starting with each letter in ordcer to make a fun mix. Let the insanity begin...

B is for... Blur tend to be a bit underrated back home in England, I find. That whole Brit-pop mantle was a heavy one to wear, but they have developed all the time, and I am always interested in any music Damon Albarn has for us to listen to.

H is for...Hatfield and The North is a road sign you can see on roads outside of Barnet in England, as well as being a 1970's art rock band. They tried a little too hard at times, but I liked them.

M is for...MC5. Old man and his memories time again. One of the offshoots of punk was that people who didn't fit in found a place to fit in for a while. Wayne Kramer of MC5 came to London and I saw him playing a small pub gig and doing this song. A stellar memory!

U is for...U2. Why wouldn't it be? Well, they are not exactly my favourite band, that's one reason. I do like some stuff they do though. When they did their Rattle And Hum tour they were going off about discovering American music like no one else ever had, yet still I like this attempt at blues. Of course it helps to have BB King out there onstage with you!

Aww, this is amazing. All of these bands (well, most of them) were introduced to me by my substitute teacher in upper school (or whatever it's called, those classes where you're 14-16 years old) - I still have a major crush on him, partly for that!! Zeppelin, Free, Pink Floyd etc. But where is all the good Steppenwolf and Pulp and Dire Straits at? Anyway. Good selection as said by cst003. And I enjoy reading your descriptions a LOT. :)
