Essential Schmindie albums

Schmindie Kid
 
Metal Box
Metal Box
"Lydon's true legacy: scratching, scabrous guitars dying a thousand deaths over churning dub bass and danceable drums. And Jonny just makes a hell of a racket over the top. Sublime."
Chairs Missing

"The first three Wire albums are all brilliant, but if I had to choose just one, it would be this. The whole gamut of emotions, and in great sharp bursts of pop perfection."

"Trendier than hell but undeniably influential. Their second album is also pretty great."
Meat Puppets II

"The beginnings of alt-country? Whatever, wonderfully ramshackle songs with a timeless sound, and vocals so hopelessly indie that they hurt."

"One of the greatest bands you've never heard of, with an album that manages to combine noise and melody with perfection. Unmissable."
Hex Enduction Hour

"Shambling songs, impenetrable lyrics, crazed cover art. No it's not Pavement, though they do owe a lot to this album. A great starter for those brave enough to take on the mighty Fall."
Reckoning

"It sounds as though it was recorded a thousand years ago, but there is something timeless about this collection of jangly joy. In my opinion their finest album."
Sound Affects

"The Jam discover Post-punk. Arguably their best album, and certainly their most varied."
The Holy Bible

"Forget how unfashionable the Manics are - this album is amazing. Lyrically and musically impeccable, it's only fault is that it's beloved of people who feel the need to quote Plath and wear glitter..."
Dirk Wears White Sox

"Studied attempt to fit into the zeitgeist, or genuinely inspired? Either way, this long-overlooked gem should be in your collection."
Meat Is Murder
Meat Is Murder
"Forget 'The Queen is Dead', this is the apogee of Messrs Morrissey and Marr's careers. The addition of 'How Soon is Now' only makes the best even better."
