    Opted out of the office Secret Santa, so have decided to buy myself a bottle of Rum.
    Any recommendations for a £20 bottle (trying to keep in the spirit of things)
    Currently its looking like a Havana Club 7

    I have been mulling this over after my rash posting earlier (which I stand by) and have a couple more to throw into the mix.
    When i first moved to Basildon, when i was about 11, one of my 1st friends dubbed* me a copy of Use Your Illusion by Guns'n'Roses.
    Infact UYI 2 was probably the 1st album i bought.
    I guess it kick started my love affair with hard-than-the-charts rock/ metal.

    The other album I want to mention is Super Furry Animals - Out Spaced.
    This album has such strong memories for me.
    I remember playing it to my dad on a car journey, he patiently listened to the whole thing and pretended to like it.
    For years he would casually throw out a "Oh, have you heard the new Small Furry Creatures album?" or similar, getting the name wrong (probably not intentially either), making stuff up, generally just remembering that i once played this album to him (itself a revelation, he never remembered my birthday) and thought it was still relevent to me.

    He died a few years ago and the first thing i did was play that album (man, this is making me well up) and remember that car journey.

    A track from it randomly came on my ipod recently and i broke down in tears, my wife had no idea what was going on as we were driving to Ikea at the time and wasn't aware of the dad/SFA connection.

    Music is powerful stuff.

    Hello Nasty - Beastie Boys.
    I was about 17 when it came out.
    Amazing.

    Also The Bluetones - Expecting to Fly, but thats because of my family and our mutual love of the band.
