Been playing some garage rock stuff circa '65-'68 (from "Nuggets" 1+2 cd boxes).
Plus I've listened to The Walkabouts and Neil Young.

Of course I have newer albums I want to play (again), like Duncan Reid, Mogwai, Bash & Pop, Alejandro Escovedo, Don Antonio etc.

That's the good thing about music (and the bad thing at the same time!), you're never finished!!  :D

That's because it is good.  ;)
You like Mogwai? Cool.
I hadn't bought their releases for a few years, this new album however is good indeed.
"Don't believe the fife" is one of my fave tracks.  8)

I got talking to Stuart Braithwaite in a pub in Spittalfields last year after going along to a book launch that he was speaking at. He's a nice bloke, very chatty, loves his football and lives his music. I'd never given Mogwai much of a listen over the years and felt a little guilty that, as much as I knew about the various bands he was talking about (especially The Fall), I knew next to nothing about his band.

They play 'Crossing The Road Material' quite often on 6Music, which has caught my ear lately.

I first heard them back in 2002 (& saw them @ Hyde Park), since then I went to a few shows, always very loud, but also intense.

Mogwai perform an exclusive set at The Quay Sessions. One of the most influential and respected bands to come out of Scotland, the band are marking 20 years since the release of their debut album, Young Team, and their highest chart position yet with their latest, Every Country's Sun.

Roddy Hart welcomes them to the show to perform an intimate gig for an invited audience and talks to guitarist Stuart Braithwaite.

Sometime between Xmas and now, I grew a little tired of all the punk, rock, pop... music in my collection.  :(
Then I discovered in an old drawer lots of cd's my late dad left behind; as no-one else seemed to have much interest in them since his passing (2007), I looked through them and found a few interesting ones with classical music. Some of those were played at home and in my car since then.

However 2018 seems to bring some new albums! I will get the new one by Dirtmusic.
As I "pledged", the Damned album should be sent to me when it's ready.
Then there's a new release by Calexico in January (might get that one later in the year).

Also, both Rat Scabies and Paul Gray have contributed to this one:

You could think there was a TV influence on them...

http://louderthanwar.com/dirtmusic-bu-bir-ruya-review/

Quote
The sheer quality of Bu Bir Ruya is staggering, perhaps more so given that their previous two albums – Troubles (2013) and Lion City (2014) – were also of such incredible superiority.
...
As the album continues into The Border Crossing with its post-punk funk and reverb, the immortal line “don’t you know the world is getting smaller” resonates deep within. Recorded in a converted mechanic’s studio in Istanbul, the sound is one of a live feel but with a clinically organic edge and as the lovely guitar pluck ends and fades it’s onwards and upwards.

The stunning vocals of Gaye Su Akyol feature on Love Is A Foreign Country providing a haunting interlude which grips the listener with every note. It’s simple and enthrallingly monotonous and provides a quite wonderful halfway mark for the album before Safety In Numbers breaks free and almost explodes onto the scene. Deep bass grooves and one of those annoyingly catchy straplines that just won’t go away.
  :D
