    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! Guest Article by Jackie Chappell In 1996, I bought an album I knew next to nothing about, by an artist I had never heard of before, on the strength of the album being issued on Peter Gabriel’s excellent Real World record label.
