The Letter ‘U’ Mixtape.

The Letter U Mixtape. A blemin’ tricky letter…

…And I shall hush you before you start. I don’t care how awful you think Bono is, Joshua Tree was an album of its time. Sometimes nineties naff dance music hits the spot which is why Ultra Nate made the list. Finally, UB40 instantly take me back to being a ridiculous teenager wearing crushed velour bodies and putting my hair in velcro rollers (I still do one of these things).

Lastly, I just couldn’t bring myself to listen to Underworld last night as I was compiling this. I literally overdosed on Irvine Welsh when Trainspotting came out and as a result that song leaves me a bit vacant nowadays. I’m OK if it takes me by surprise on the radio, but taking the conscious decision to listen to it is beyond me.
