Following trayce's example, the first 10 tracks played at random from the entire contents of my Archos Jukebox:
  1. Foil - Rocket USA (Quarterback Mix)
  2. Mogwai - O I Sleep
  3. Mogwai - Golden Porche
  4. 800 Cherries - Tibie and Me (Puppy Song)
  5. Northern Picture Library - Dreams and Stars and Sleep
  6. Letraset - Windows 1971
  7. Pet Shop Boys - Dreaming of the Queen
  8. Slowdive - Rutti
  9. Stereolab - Double Rocker
  10. The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
(I didn't cheat; the (recently lifted) 20Gb limit kept my Jukebox's contents fairly lean for a long time, resulting in few, if any, cringeworthy tracks.) Oh, and in doing this, I found out that my Jukebox (which is currently 61% full) contains 4,346 MP3s. This will come in handy the next time someone who doesn't think in megabytes or bit rates asks me "how many songs does it hold?"

I'd happily also praise the contents of your list except sadly I don't know all those bands (I think I kinda lost the plot somewhere in 1993, heh). Well, I know not 800 Cherries or Northern Picture Library anyhoo.

But mmmm Mogwai and Slowdive, nice!

Re:
800 Cherries - a Japanese indiepop band. I know nothing about them, save that "Puppy Song" was on the Pop Jingu vol. 1 compilation.

Northern Picture Library -- Bobby Wratten/Annemari Davies' project after the Field Mice broke up. They had a few interesting songs, including excursions into electronica and instrumental soundscapes. (Then she dumped him and we ended up with four rather limpid Trembling Blue Stars albums about it, but that's another story.)

Letraset... how do I know that name?? Did they support someone last year or something...? Where are they from? Sorry... a bit random... this is just going to really annoy me now...

Re:
Letraset was/is a less poppy, more experimental side project of Nicole and Julian from Minimum Chips. They released an album on Chapter Music some years ago.

Re:
Yeah... I'm pretty sure they played with someone I went to see last year. Can't remember for the life of me who it was, but I think it was at The Empress... I remember being impressed...

Thanks anyway. :)
