It’s Record Store Day! It’s finally here! As music fans all over the world head to their local store to get their hands on some special edition purchases, we catch up with Patrick Adams of Blouse to find out about three records that changed his view of music.
Blouse / Craft Spells release a limited 200 edition run of 7″s through Captured Tracks featuring the track ‘Gruesome Flowers 2: A Tribute to the Wake’ for Record Store Day 2012.
Fugazi – Red Medicine
The album that made me want to become a musician
I was 15 years old and my friend made me a mix tape. One of the bands on there was Fugazi, with songs from Red Medicine on it. I freaked out when I heard the bass lines. My friend told me I should play bass and he would play drums. We played a show a week later.
Queen – Greatest Hits
The first album that made me stop in my tracks
I bought a tape player and that album for a three week long road trip I took with my parents when I was 12. I listened to it probably 100 times on the trip. I still know all the lyrics to every song on the record.. Even “Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy”.
The Beatles – Abbey Road
The album I always listen to on a rainy day
A consistently amazing album from start to finish. Duh.
