X-Ray Spex "Germ Free Adolescents, Expanded" (2005). So many
excellent songs and outstanding musicianship, a CD well worth looking
for, time not wasted. An extraordinary band, here's their famous 1978 OGWT
performance, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQ_slDXkclM (11min 14 sec).
Singer/songwriter Poly Styrene is sorely missed, a fearless and brilliant young woman, genius really.
Edit: It seems there’s a forthcoming documentary about Poly, narrated by her daughter Celeste...
“Poly Styrene: I Am A Cliche". Scheduled release fall 2018, definitely something to look for 8).

Some more choice selections, all very highly recommended :o.
"Songs for Swinging Larvae" (Renaldo and the Loaf, 1981).
"Studies For Player Piano Vol I & II" (Conlon Nancarrow).*
"Stand Strong Stand Proud" (Vice Squad, EMI, 1982).
"Quintessence" (La Bamboche, Hexagon, 1978).
Greener Postures” (Snakefinger, Ralph, 1980).
"Sly and the Family Stone Greatest Hits" (1970).
"You Gotta Wash Your Ass" (Redd Foxx, 1975).
"The End of the Universe" (Lewis Black, 2002).
"Lumpy Gravy" (Frank Zappa, Verve, 1968).
"Doc Watson" (Vanguard Records, 1964).

"American Wino” (The Lewd, 1982).
"Mr Banjo" (Freddy Morgan, 1957).
"Torment” (Zoogz Rift, 1989).
* In the 1980's I was very fortunate to attend a live performance of Nancarrow's
astonishingly complex and startlingly beautiful compositions. His specially modified
player pianos were carefully shipped to the US from Mexico. And for afters, there was an
audience Q & A with composer Conlon! A thoroughly nice chap too, having fought against
Franco's fascists in the Spanish Civil War, he chose to live in Mexico as an expatriate, rather
than be persecuted here for his service as a Veteran with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.
Here's an excellent documentary, "The Life and Work of Conlon Nancarrow" (30 min):
