McCartney didn't credit though, didn't think he wanted it. Travis also sing the backing vocals at the end of Feeder's Tumble and Fall.

Have you checked the Aliens out? What a brilliant side-project that is.... but I still hope they all reunite one of these days!

So my top albums of 1981 all appear to be post-punk or related!
except Abacab of course, though it was influenced by XTC and the Police

1. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Architecture & Morality
2. The Durutti Column - LC
3. This Heat - Deceit
4. The Flying Lizards - Fourth Wall
5. Genesis - Abacab
6. Public Image Ltd - The Flowers of Romance
7. Eno & Byrne - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
8. Glenn Branca - The Ascension
9. Elvis Costello - Trust
10. New Order - Movement
[11. Echo - Heaven Up Here]

But I'm sure I'm missing a major album I love from 1981 dammit.

Adam & The Ants, Madness, Ultravox, Kim Wilde, Human League, The Stranglers....?

A potent period with plenty of good mainstream acts to choose from. One overlooked album from that year is 'Homosapien' by Pete Shelley (ex-Buzzcocks).

Must also add "Duran Duran" to the list..... True though, they wouldn't have reached those heights if it wasn't for the advent of MTV which premiered that year!

None of the artists you both mention are the one I was trying to think of (still can't remember) but the ones you mentioned that I know, namely Dare, Meninblack, La Folie, Vienna and Duran's debut - are all very good.

This probably wouldn't be included on your list, but the Styx "Paradise Theater" is worth checking.....Phil Collins w/"Face Value", Jefferson Starship w/"Modern Times", Go-Gos "Beauty and the Beat", "Escape" by Journey, "High "N" Dry" by Def Leppard, Hall and Oates with "Private Eyes, Rolling Stones "Tattoo You", "Ghost in the Machine" by the Police, and "Freeze Frame" by J Geils Band" are just a few honorable mentions as well.....Must also include Prince w/"Controversy" for good measure...

The Jefferson Starship and Go-Go's albums above were not hits at all in the UK.

The others were more successful IIRC, with even the Styx album reaching the top ten.
