ALBUMS
23. Charlie Peacock | West Coast Diaries Volume 1
This one is from 1990 as far as I can see (though Wikipedia lists it as a 1988 album).
The album was released independently by the artist but when he got the deal with Sparrow Records they re-issued all 3 of the WEST COAST DIARIES on their label. I thought it was 1987 but you can delete and move all other albums up one slot. I'll save for 1988.

This means that the following songs from my song list should also be deleted with songs below moving up:
43. Charlie Peacock | Hiring a Worker
48. Charlie Peacock | This is How the Work Gets Done
180. Charlie Peacock | My Mind Played a Trick on Me
205. Charlie Peacock | The Last Hurrah

CupOfDreams, we seem to have very similar tastes, it's impressive !
I was in High School & College during the 80s so it really helped shape my musical landscape. Before then my exposure was dominated by what was on the radio. Top 40 & Classic Rock. There was a college radio station I discovered in 1980 that had a 2 hour program that played stuff I had never heard before. Hearing "Holiday In Cambodia" for the first time was one of those "Holy F***" moments for me. Soon after I was buying albums by Joy Division, Black Flag, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, X, all the late 70s punk & post-punk I had missed. I've never relied on commercial radio to define my tastes since. Sure there have been mainstream acts that I've liked since, but my way of discovering music definitely changed in the 80s.
Again, a very similar upbringing - although, I suspect, in different countries.
I listened to commercial radio when I first paid attention to music and I look back with amusement to the stuff I was listening to (Rick Astley anyone ?), although the first ever single I bought was "P Machinery" from German band Propaganda (in 1985), already showing an interest in off-the-beaten path pop music.

The critical point was reached when I had enough of the commercial pop drivel which you could hear on French radio every night and on one fateful evening in 1988, I switched radio to the Bernard Lenoir show on Europe 1. It was a revelation, like something that was waiting to happen. I bought my first "indie" album that year - the Sugarcubes' Life's too Good.

And it went all downhill from there :)
