Here are the top ten albums that were a huge influence in my seven teenage years, 74-80, in no particular order.
Although a Bowie / Bolan fan, by the mid-70s punk had replaced glam-rock in my affections, so I never actually bought anything by these two during those years.
Pink Floyd – Animals
Stranglers – Rattus Norvegicus
Buzzcocks – Another Music in a Different Kitchen
Elvis Costello – This Year’s Model
The Jam – This is the Modern World
Human League – Travelogue
Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures
Pere Ubu – The Modern Dance
Gary Numan – The Pleasure Principle
The Police – Outlandos D’Amour
