I'm going to bust out the 80s stuff today (Simple Minds, Yello etc) in memory of John Hughes. I've been caning the new ROOT! album Surface Paradise over the last fortnight. It's overtaken Tex Perkins' 70s/80s tribute as album of the year by a mile (this might be indicative of either really good or really bad taste... ). It's reached #4 on the Aussie Indie Charts this week...yeah!
