Actually leather tanker helmets are quite fashionable amongst WWII re-enactors riding motorcycles and those looking for the “retro” look w/o going German as they were quite popular with GI’s riding bikes back then.

Any essential list that excludes Gentle Giant and includes Kiss is very dubious at best. frown

I'll give you 5 albums that you should definitely hear before you die:

1. The The - Mind Bomb
2. Jellyfish - Spilt Milk
3. Pre Fab Sprout - Jordan: The Comeback
4. Mike Keneally - Wooden Smoke
5. Crowded House - Temple Of Low Men

Of course I could go on and on and on... grin

I just realized that Soul Mining is one of my favorite albums and it is the only The The album I have. Why did I never explore more of their music???

So, Terry, now that you're awake, are you gonna delete 5 of 'em? I'm way more interested in seeing which 5 now have to go away.
