Ten Of The Best

Thanks to Rob Harris and Simon Dell for asking the following question : “List ten albums which have stayed with you throughout your life. It’s not about best sellers or classics, just ten albums that mean something to you.”

Stick to the brief. “Influential and formative albums. Stayed with you. Mean something”

Ten, you say? Here goes

KATE BUSH – THE KICK INSIDE
How I’m moved. How you (still) move me…

MARC ALMOND – TORMENT & TOREROS
Let me live in your life, for you make it all seem to matter…

NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS – NO MORE SHALL WE PART
The distilled essence of Cave. God is in the house

COCTEAU TWINS – BLUE BELL KNOLL
Beware Guthrie’s guitar, Elizabeth’s not-voice and Carolyn’s fingers

TUBEWAY ARMY – TUBEWAY ARMY
Minimal, simplistic and scary as hell. My name is Smith…

JOHN FOXX – METAMATIC
I know. Fuck it. Read the brief…

BABY DEE – THE ROBIN’S TINY THROAT
Don’t worry, you won’t know this one. It’ll make you cry anyway

BLONDIE – BLONDIE
Oh darlin’, darlin darlin, I can’t wait to see you. Debbie, I’m there *wink*

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO
Vocal androgny. A singerine. Completely unbearable

X-RAY SPEX – GERM FREE ADOLESCENTS
Day-glo non-punky punk. Essential, adolescent sax appeal.

SCOTT WALKER – SCOTT 3
Because it’s raining, today
