Definitely "Eric's Trip"...a small band from Moncton, New Brunswick. They were named after a song by Sonic Youth - which is another band that wowed me in my teens. Lastly, Archers of Loaf blew me away when I was in high school...

I was supposed to go and see them in Birmingham (UK) when I was ? old but it was the year that riots broke out in cities across the UK and I couldn't go:((

'Planet Earth' changed me;)

Depeche Mode...loved them too!

Prince (Everything, even concert bootlegs)
Pink Floyd (The Wall, Animals)
The The (Infected)
U2 (Joshua Tree, Unforgettable Fire)
Kate Bush (Whole Story)
Blondie (Best of)
Adam and the Ants (Greatest Hits)
Peter Gabriel (So)
Police/Sting (Greatest Hits, Nothing Like the Sun)
Dire Straits (Brothers in Arms)

I miss the hiss, tape head cleaning and trying to untangle 20 seconds of your favourite track from the pinch rollers which would thenceforth have a garbled section: I am forced by nostalgia to add the garbling vocally over the top of the CD version of the track nowadays. ;-)

P.S. You can buy a nifty gadget these days for those like me with only a tape player in your car....it's a cassette-shaped device which has a wire which you can plug into a CD/MP3 player. You then put the 'cassette' into the player and Hey Presto...works pretty well

My 8 track (quad speakers even :) ) played the Eagles Hotel California for an entire semester. Just never took the tape out. It was on very low but if you were quiet you could here it.

The funny thing is my CD of Hotel California is missing... my 12 year old has it some where.

Love, love love Joy Division

As for getting old - as I told gibun today:

Congratulations!

As for being 'old' It's obvious you haven't seen these:

"If you're searching for evidence that 50 is the new 40, as the saying goes, you need look no further than to Cyndi Lauper."
New York Times

"It's said that age 60 is the new 40."
Vermont's Burlington Free Press

"50 is the new 40--or even the new 35."
Newsday

"Fifty used to be the new 40, but now, according to the cover of a recent AARP magazine, it turns out that 60 is the new 30."
Salt Lake City's Deseret Morning News

" 'You once said, 'Don't trust anyone over 30,' but now chirp, '50 is the new 30!'"
Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Now 40 might be the new 30, but there's no way that 34 is the new 19."
San Francisco Chronicle

"They say 50 is the new 40. Or is it 30? Either way, again, I hope they're right."
USA Today

Rush - best band out of Canada
Van Halen - most inovative guitar player (DLR era)

Lots of other artists/groups, but these two bands were the most played. Ahhhhh...the days of long hair, or just having hair! :)
