Welcome to sub’s stereo

Since my early teens, music has been a big part of my life. I was lucky enough to be developing my music taste in the mid to late nineties, when British music was having it’s strongest showing in twenty years or more.

I was more of a Blur man than an Oasis man, but I would happily listen to either. My favourite band of the 90s was Ocean Colour Scene, whom I saw in concert a couple of times, and my favourite ever is REM. More recently I am loving Mumford & Sons.

My student loans were spent on CDs & gig-going, and my once mighty collection of over 500 CDs is now stripped back to it’s bare bones after I needed to sell some in the early noughties.  I now have a CD collection of around 100, but with the advent of Deezer, I can’t even remember the last time I listened to a CD.

sub’s stereo will be updated whenever I can and especially when I’ve found something I just have to share, so be sure to check back to see what I’m listening to. Please suggest things you think I might like – your suggestion might one day make the list…
