'Happy Daze Vol 1' (1990) and 'Happy Daze Vol 2' (1991). Had these on cassette, played a lot but then forgot about them. And Vol 1 had disappeared from my collection altogether.

A great listen - a window on the indie/dance/shoegaze of the time. :D

Jeanette - Porque Te Vas

The title song had been in my head ever since I saw the film "Cria Cuervos" this year... it recurs in several key scenes. Fantastic film too.

and there's this lovely performance:

Not a brand new album, been out a few months, but I've been enjoying Winter Palace - Waiting for the World to Turn this week.

Love this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT-S3mII1OE

Scott Walker and early Pink Floyd I like. :D

Captain Beefheart I found a bit difficult to get into. Particularly the early stuff. I did like the track 'Upon The My Oh My' (1974) which he played on BBC TV and may have been a single.

I have a 'best of' somewhere, maybe I should give it a whirl again?

Oh, absolutely. I just see Captain Beefheart as any other blues musician, just with a slightly wider palette :)

AB - you have posted the link to the Wikipedia page for the A R Kane album '69'. :)

I should get around to checking it out. Given that I like M/A/R/R/S 'Pump Up The Volume' and the genres of music that both that record and AR Kane seem to have influenced.

'Mile End' by Pulp is one of the great tracks on there. I possibly like it more than Pulp's hit singles.
