HIPSTERS! This is what they wanted!

So, eleven weeks later and side one of The Record Player comes to a close. It's been great fun and I've met some new people and heard some stuff I wouldn't ever consider listening to. Below are the chart placings decided by ticket sales, biggest surprise was 9 people for The Stone Roses. I'd think more would come now that they're decided to get their sorry asses on the comeback trail. Thanks to all who bought tickets, thanks to Tyneside Cinema for going along with the whole crazy scheme.

Back in March, suggestions for long list coming this week - please add your faves to comments list or email them to

1. Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars
2. Led Zep 4
3. Dark Side of the Moon
4. The Hounds of Love
5. Pet Sounds
6. For Emma, Forever Ago
7. Seldom Seen Kid
8. Abbey Road
9. Queen 2
10. Quadrophenia
11. The Stone Roses

Another vote for Village Green Preservation Society, though when it comes to the Kinks I prefer Lola Vs. Powerman and the Money-Go-Round.

Other suggestions:

Jeff Wayne - War of the Worlds
Nick Cave - No More Shall We Part
Eagles - One of These Nights
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed
Sisters of Mercy - Floodlands
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Kraftwek - Computer World

And if you're feeling brave and think the audience could handle a 3 LP album then I'd also recommend Ayreon - Into the Electric Castle for some psychedelic fun.
