THOU SHALT COVET THESE FIVE ALBUMS
Simon & Garfunkel Sounds Of Silence
I especially love side two that starts with Richard Cory and all that dark stuff.
PiL Metal Box
It’s a wonderful car crash of things – vaguely disco, dub and industrial – and guitarist Keith Levene was a genius in tying all these elements together.
Rubber Soul/Revolver I can’t pick between these two, so I’d take the Revolver record and stick it in Rubber Soul’s sleeve!
Nina Simone The Essential…
I know it’s cheating but Nina has so many different recordings that I absolutely love so I’ll go for a comp. She is an artist who has eras and she’s beyond legendary.
Derek And Clive Ad Nauseam
It’s nuts and it’s the ultimate pick-me-up. It’s funny but it’s also uncomfortable. Peter Cook is really twisting the screws into Dudley Moore. It’s a painful listen, but I do love that.
