Alan:  Oh, yeah. I like all the bands. I’ve got a broad taste, you know. From the brit-pop bands like UB40, Def Leppard, right back to classic rock, like Wings. Ben:  Who’s Wings? Alan:  They’re only the band the Beatles could have been. Ben:  I love the Beatles. Alan:  Yeah, so do I. Ben:  What’s your favourite Beatles album, then? Alan:  Tough one. I think I’d have to say ‘The Best of the Beatles’.

Taken from an Alan Partridge sketch, that dialogue always pop’s into mind when I tell people about Eudora. Made up of B-Sides/Rareities/Covers, Eudora may not be a greatest hits album per sebut I do believe it’s the greatest collection of Get Up Kids song’s you’ll find.

Like a lot of my favourite albums, it took a bit of time to get used to but in the end it worked out ok. If you like traditional Emo/Punk that actually meant something then this is a great place to start.

It’s hard not to like an album that features two of the best cover songs ever in the form of The Cures ‘Close To Me’ and Bowies ‘Suffragette City’
