1. Imperial Bedroom
2. Get Happy!!
3. Blood & Chocolate
4. All This Useless Beauty
5. Spike

Though in all honesty, I could probably survive on just 1, 2, and 3.

This morning you've got time for a hot, home-cooked breakfast! Delicious and piping hot in only 3 microwave minutes.

Get Happy!!
Blood & Chocolate
Brutal Youth

They would have to be the double CD reissues though (or the Special Tour edition in the case of WIWC).

In order starting with my favourite of today:-

1. King Of America
2. Spike
3. Punch The Clock
4. Imperial Bedroom
5. Get Happy

The first three and Get Happy I just remember playing over and over again on their initial release. Imperial Bedroom was more of a grower.
It was as much of the alphabet as I knew how to use.

I've always invisioned the woman I marry to have Blood and Chocolate listed as their alltime favorite album.

It just seems right.

For the desert island just one choice, Punch the Clock, as it contains 'Shipbuiding.' :wink:

I guess there are two good reasons why we'll not be getting married then!

But what about Armed Forces? Couldn't I sneak it in the waistband of my pants, in my shoe, something?
It's a radiation vibe I'm groovin' on
