Richard (and Linda) Thompson; Tom Waits; Townes Van Zandt; R.E.M.; Echo & The Bunnymen.

Only 5, so no room for some other favourite 80s artists/bands (The Smiths, The Triffids, The Pogues, The Feelies, 'Paisley Underground' bands). No room left for Dylan also, but I guess he will get some mentions by others anyway. And no Sandy Denny, but let's say she is represented a little (sort of) by Richard and Linda Thompson.

Paul Simon (with & without)

Billy Joel

Harry Chapin


Then, depending on which way the wind's blowing: Elton John or The Searchers or Bob Dylan or Martyn Joseph or Kate Rusby or Mary Chapin Carpenter or Mike Batt (there's a lot more to him than just singing about picking up litter!) or .......

Have you watched Liam's recent Down by the river Thames gig? He played Headshrinker and Fade away for the first time and they sounded great (or in other words biblical)!

I watched it on YouTube the other week! Great performance... as you were:lol:

I have so many that limiting it to 5 is almost impossible but 5 I’m currently enjoying might include:

1) John Prine

2) Frank Turner

3) Bleachers

4) The Beatles

5) Chris Stapleton

I love many of those listed by others too
