Tom Waits – Orphans (Bawlers) – An album for a rainy day…
“The album I tend to visit most on wet, rainy, housebound days. Perfect for soundtracking a long, dark journey in the van whilst on
tour. It never fails to warm me up.”
Sound of Silver by LCD Soundsystem – An album that helps me get back on track…
I love all of their albums but this one especially seems to do the trick when I need a lift. It’s full of anthems and great party tunes and it’s just a great album to listen to very very LOUD.
The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground – The album that made me want to be a musician…
This isn’t the first record that inspired me to play music but it made a big impact when I first heard it. I always loved how each track seems to exist in it’s own world. There’s loads of variety on this album and that’s a big inspiration. It shows that you could write ballads like ‘Pale Blue Eyes’ alongside weird trip-outs like ‘The Murder Mystery’ and they can all sit nicely together.
