Camper Van Beethoven made some great records in the 80s. In fact, that's when I started listening to them. However, I'm not sure which one was available on white vinyl. The song "Take The Skinheads Bowling" is an 80s classic!

 

I really enjoyed their 2013 album "La Costa Perdida," and now they have followed it up with 2014's "El Camino Real." They are true "indie rock" pioneers, and they are back with some very interesting records.

Sometimes this seems to be the "lost" Clash album, but it is fantastic. One of the best albums ever:

-Thank you for the reminder; I'll go put it on now. Not your typical Sunday morning record, perhaps - but it IS a great album... :-)

Margaret Harshaw, my teacher's teacher.  Because she is *awesome* and so are Pristine's remasters.

 

And, when it isn't that, it's either the Solti Ring cycle, the 1953 Krauss or one of my Tristan und Isolde CDs that just came in the mail (von Karajan with Dernesch/Vickers, Böhm with Nilsson/Windgassen, or Knappertsbusch 1950 with Helena Braun and Treptow).

 

I'm on a Wagner binge.  My husband keeps reminding me that my "Hojotoho"ing is not well-suited to the acoustics of our house.  :)

... You made me curious now. I will surely check that stuff out. You might also remember dEUS from the 80/90s. Similar to Camper they are still active (at least they were until not too long ago). In case you didn't yet, you might want to check out their younger stuff as well. They didn't exactly get better (not really posssible if you start from a level as high as shown on "Worst Case Scenario") but they changed their style without of losing one mm of land while doing so! Great! Just have a listen to "Vantage Point / Slow"...
