PUNK ROCK 101

JAMIE PICKS THE SEVEN AL­BUMS ES­SEN­TIAL TO HIS PUNK ED­U­CA­TION

Kerrang! (UK) - - News -

THE AL­BUM THAT CHAN­NELLED MY ANGER FRANK CARTER & THE RAT­TLESNAKES BLOS­SOM

“This al­bum came out at a time when I was feel­ing par­tic­u­larly an­gry, and when this came out it was like, ‘Yes! An­gry Frank is back!’ With [Frank’s pre­vi­ous band] Pure Love you saw him giv­ing up on anger, so to hear him come back to it here was great.”

THE AL­BUM THAT IN­TRO­DUCED ME TO PUNK GREEN DAY DOOKIE

“This was a big record for me in my teenage years and was one of the first al­bums that opened my eyes to punk mu­sic. I par­tic­u­larly like When I Come Around, which is just a fan­tas­tic song.”

THE AL­BUM THAT SHOWED ME THE POWER OF MU­SIC GAL­LOWS OR­CHES­TRA OF WOLVES

“It’s amaz­ing that some of the read­ers might be too young to re­mem­ber Or­ches­tra Of Wolves, but it’s in­cred­i­ble. The whole al­bum sounds as if it wants to kill some­one. And when I saw it live, the ex­pe­ri­ence was mind-blow­ing.”

THE AL­BUM I USED TO COVER IN MY BAND THE CLASH LON­DON CALL­ING

“This al­bum holds a place in my heart be­cause when I first started to play mu­sic, I played in a band and we used to cover some of the songs on Lon­don Call­ing. We used to cover the ti­tle-track, in fact.”

THE AL­BUM THAT SIM­PLY DE­FINES PUNK ROCK SEX PIS­TOLS NEVER MIND THE BOL­LOCKS, HERE’S THE SEX PIS­TOLS

“I love this al­bum be­cause it sounds feral and it sounds nasty. The Sex Pis­tols for me are a band that de­fines what punk is. It smacks you around, and none of the other al­bums I’ve cho­sen would ex­ist with­out this.”

THE AL­BUM THAT CAP­TURES PUNK’S EN­ERGY THE BRONX THE BRONX

“This is such a fan­tas­tic record. There’s a song on this called Shitty Fu­ture, which has to stand as one of the quick­est songs I’ve ever heard. Plus it has His­tory’s Stran­glers on it, which has such a marching and re­lent­less groove.”

THE AL­BUM THAT HOLDS A SPE­CIAL PLACE IN MY HEART BLACK FLAG SLIP IT IN

“This is a huge band for me. When we most re­cently played some shows in the UK, two fans flew out from Amer­ica and brought me the vinyl of Slip It In. For that rea­son, it’s the Black Flag al­bum I’ve cho­sen.”
