If you like extended mixes, particularly from the 1987-1991 era, then run over to Brave New Waves, another new blog with an impressive array of goodies. In addition to mixes of tracks from ABC, Shakespeare's Sister, Oingo Boingo, Midge Ure, Secession and others, you can also find Industry's Stranger To Stranger album, Our Daughter's Wedding's Moving Windows and Digital Cowboy EP and lots of other stuff. Well done, sir! [Update - this one's gone]

If you can't beat them, link to them! At Jacyk's 80>90+ music memories you can find some Fra Lippo Lippi, Comsat Angels, and a group I will probably be featuring myself at some point, the synthpop duo Minor Detail. [Closed in 2011 apparently]
Probably the most 'schizophrenic' blog I have come across is Rockistory, a Spanish language blog that includes artists from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and current. It's like cruising the racks at the public library. That being said, there is a lot of material from the 1988-1992 period such as the Milltown Brothers, Real People, The La's, and others which are worth checking out. [Closed in 2011 as well]
