They say you always have a soft spot for your first love and mine was for a bunch of hairy brummies led by a man with big shades and bigger hair who wished he was in the Beatles.
The first lp I bought was the double album Out of the Blue in glorious blue vinyl and with a free cut out make your own cardboard elo spaceship.
