I've been listening to a lot of Kate Bush again recently especially the sensual world, also the angelic upstarts, slf, and sarah Macloughlin. 
I've had a lot of time off work so have been catching up on downloading all those tracks I used to have on vinyl and never got round to replacing with cds.  I still have quite a way to go I think... Undecided
I've just been going through a cd buying phase , same thing , getting cd's to replace my aged  vinyl  and 8 track collection . I had a look at a couple of Angelic Upstarts cd's today , but decided on Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables by the Dead Kennedys . Also been listening to Kate Bush's 2005 double cd ( the name of which escapes me at the moment )  ,  a best of the Hunters and Collectors disc  , and Chisel , best of Cold Chisel .

Loved your post Dave. SLF were a great band and I believe they're still playing.
You mention The Angelic Upstarts and as it happens I used to go to school with the drummer and he was one of my best mates from about ten to when we left school. What a laugh Keith was, but, sadly, he's been through a dark time, due, I think, to his involvement with The Upstarts. I don't know if you're aware that the band were managed by some pretty hardcore guys and at one point there was a fallout between the management and group and the band members attempted to cancel all ties with one individual in particular. Keith, my mate, was caught up in this and received a kicking by a person I know but will not name. His injuries were that severe he almost died and his head swelled up to almost twice its normal size.
Ever since that night Keith has never been the same and there's a tragic vacant look in his eyes. In fact he was almost homeless on more than one occasion and when I encounter him these days he either does not recognise me or is manic in his over-enthusiasm to rekindle our friendship.
I blame the evil ******* for ruining his life when he was little more than a boy.

I have recently discovered the delights of Bic Runga (from New Zeland I believe) a fantastic voice and some great lyrics. Drive is an excellent album for  fans of soft rock/pop/folk.

For the more mature musical tastes I don't think you can go too far wrong with Damien Rice and "O." A wonderfully original album with many musical "genres" explored on the album. I keep this in my car always and is always my de-fault CD when I am not sure what I want to listen to.

All killer, no filler
Fans of Ryan Adams, Coldplay, Keane and to a lesser extent Snow Patrol should really give him a try.

I recently bought the soundtrack to the musical Avenue Q - it's fabulously funny.
