This weeks 'This Is'

As you probably already know, Angela is heading off on her first overseas trip, so Sharon from Handmaiden is filling in as the 'This Is Hostess with the Mostess'. I must say I was very chuffed when she asked me to nominate this weeks theme.

Not long ago, Jess had a giveaway on her blog and to enter you had to leave a comment about your first ever concert you went to, or the first ever album you bought. I loved reading all the comments she received....it was quite hilarious! So, that's the inspiration for this weeks theme which is:

This is my absolute favourite band of all time

I want to know all about it....when did you first hear their music? Which albums did you buy (on vinyl or tape or cd)? Which concerts did you go to? Which crappy overpriced souvenirs were you seduced into buying? Were you in love with the lead singer, or the guitar player, or the drummer? Did they have tight acid wash jeans and bad 80's hair? Did they mime or actually sing (very big question in the 80's)?

Maybe even include a Mixtape of your favourite songs too so we can all share!
Can't wait for Sunday!

Nice choice for this week though I will have to have a good think about it. Should I go with the daggy oldies or the more cool me?!
Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Thanks for the catalyst tip, I ended up downloading it - It was great.

Good theme! The one that I finally settle on will definitely be dependent on my mood at the time. I chop and change music like you wouldn't believe.
