INFO > Taken together, “Lost Property” and yesterday’s “Machine Soul” effectively represent the two most significant sides of my music collection—the ‘yin and yang’, if you will. Subtitled ‘An Alternative History 1979 – 1992’, this compilation surveys prominent post punk and indie bands, predominantly from the UK (The B-52’s and Jane’s Addiction seem awkwardly out of place here). Common to both “Lost Property” and “Machine Soul” is the ubiquitous “Blue Monday”—quite appropriate given how New Order bridged the gap between indie and dance.
