Kaleidoscope - "Side Trips", "A Beacon From Mars", "and Incredible Kaleidoscope". All charming, eclectic and utterly indispensible, especially the first two. They do the scariest cover of Scots folk standard "Greenwood Sidee" that I've ever heard. Meanwhile, for an 80s equivalent, check out the early Camper Van Beethoven albums on Rough Trade.

Also, you could try out Dr. Strangely Strange's "Kip Of The Serenes" if you can find it. Be warned, though, the CD version is mastered at the wrong speed (at least a tone too slow apparently, although I've never heard the vinyl version so that didn't put me off"). I managed to speed it back again by putting it through the Wavelab mastering unit that came with my edition of Cubase.

Then there's the "Wicker Man" soundtrack...
