I recently spent a couple of weeks round the pool in Corfu. Here's what floated my boat in terms of vaguely SoT friendly tunes.

  • FFS: FFS. Intriguing pairing between British art rockers Franz Ferdinand and the always wonderful Sparks. The highlights are truly wonderful.

  • The Duckworth Lewis Method: Sticky Wickets. On balance this is probably even better than their first album especially Third Man which is the best ELO song in decades.

  • Lindemann: Skills & Pills. Rammstein's frontman's side project. It's deeply perverted!

  • Iron Savior: Iron Savior. Their recent bout of activity has led me into a bit of a Saviorfest over recent months.

    In no way do I have any form of OCD but when I'm queueing up at the airport on the way out I HAVE to listen to AC/DC's Back in Black and on the plane and on the return journey I MUST listen to David Gilmour's Live in Gdansk.

    As I've got tickets for Motley Crue and Alice Cooper in Novemeber I gave AC's Theatre of Death album a spin.

  • Avantasia: The Flying Opera - Around the World in 20 Days (live.) Tremendous live album.

  • Amon Amarth: Fate of Norns. I don't think anybody else was listening to this around the pool!

  • Arch Enemy: Anthems of Rebellion. Top class metal.

  • The Doobie Brothers: Southbound. I really enjoyed this allstar affair from last year.

  • Hugh Cornwell: New Songs for King Kong: Full live renditions of the Hoover Dam and Rattus albums.

  • Molly Hatchet: No Guts…No Glory. A much underrated album from the original era of the band.

  • Oratory: Beyond Earth. One of my favourite obscure albums from a Portuguese band who simply disappeared from the face of the earth.

  • Pagan's Mind: Celestial Entrance. One of the most consistent bands alive.

  • Romeo's Daughter: Spin. I've always thought this band should have been huge and their fourth album is excellent.

  • Sex Pistols: Never Mind the Bollocks. In reality this is just a great classic rock record.

  • Styx: Return to Paradise. The short-lived reformation of the 1990's produced this solid live album.

  • Kiske/ Somerville: City of Heroes. A good platter from earlier this year.

    Since my return from holiday I have been listening fairly obsessively to One More for the Fans by Lynyrd Skynyrd et al. They could have tackled some post-1977 songs but they didn't.
