I was given a promo copy of KOTM, and I listened to that a time or two. I think I downloaded Happiness in Magazines, Love Travels too. Ah, those halcyon days of P2P when everybody was at ease with nicking stuff. They're the albums that hooked me.

I always took a 'try before you buy' approach, so eventually got round to buying Love Travels properly, and got the version with the DVD. that was the first. I've since bought the other seven, but in a seemingly random order.

Wotcha lurkers, hope you had a fun packed weekend! You'll all be fascinated to learn that my first Coxon album was The Sky Is Too High which I bought one sunny Saturday afternoon from the now defunct Our Price record store. The Chart Show showed I Wish on the telly that morning, but I was dying to hear more... I totally missed the release of KOTM though, I was probably too busy scratching my head, picking my nose and crying over some boy.

Love how the topic of this thread randomly changed. Laughing

Why did I decide to buy it?

I was at a Barnes and Noble listening station. I knew from Modern Life that Graham was the guitarist who played those extraordinary strains from the Chemical World intro and searched his name. Happiness came up and I listened to the bits of each song. People of the Earth made my ears bleed, but hearing Ribbons and Leaves hooked me.

the KOTM takes me back... funny how music can do that. It also reminds me of the transcopic forum when that place was in full swing...I say full swing about 10 of us just like this place now in fact. Laughing Some good people who would go on to shape this forum in the early years. Then April 2003 I would meet up with a couple of people from that forum and see my first Coxon gig.

My first Coxon gig was ... *googles*

Blimey, ten years ago today. There's a conincidence. Sheffield Leadmill.

I saw Blur 25 years ago, October '91, but didn't become a proper fan till about 2005.

Yeah happiness in magazines and love travels are real quality. Graham at his artistic best and a focus as a solo artist that I doubt he's repeat. so they would be my top two with A + E to complete my top 3. In saying that KOTM is special and will always be for a number of reasons.

for artists that I was a fan of i never took the try before buy approach. That was a small select group, Graham, Wilco, Eels.

The Leadmill gig... ten years today is strange.

you're one up on me... i've never seen blur and i never will. i've been close on a few occasions but never had that real desire i suppose.

I got The Sky Is Too High in HMV, I remember listening to Kiss Of Morning a lot during my last pregnancy. I thought there was something wrong with my copy of LTAIS until I caught Jareth toddling over to the cd player to hit replay as Standing On My Own Again ended Laughing

I remember when I first came across that forum and noticed at the bottom of the homepage that it had nearly one million members... I was like "WOW!"

Then I registered and realised 99,99% of them were fake users Laughing
