Yeah, some bloody good songs on that... High and Dry / Street Spirit made a number of compilations IIRC, and Fake Plastic Trees is lovely. Probably been about ten years since I listened to it as an album, and it's hanging together better than I remember.

edit: Although it does feel a bit Madchester...

I 'discovered' this album around 1998, when Virgin were clearing out all the cassette albums they had in their warehouse for a 1 a throw,
Remind me, when did Virgin/Ourprice close out? Found some fun random stuff in those sales... including this single -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuAwl5kfbgs -- and oh-em-gee there's more stuff on YouTube/MySpace now... time to go a-stream-ripping...
