    Barrett yeah, Fall yeah (in a bit of a Fall phase at the moment), Rock Bottom - been listening to that loads too.

    I can't seem to get past Rock Bottom with Robert Wyatt. Nothing else sticks in my head or excites me the way that records does.

    Magical album, sounds like nothing else. I read his biography last year, fascinating read. Love all his stuff, but that’s his best IMO. I was trying to explain to Mrs Monzo last night why artists such as Mark E Smith, Daevid Allen, Viv Stanshall, Robert Wyatt, Beefheart, Zappa, Stephen Stapleton etc. fascinate me so much. I think that album sums it up - it’s pure creativity without compromise. When I hear them, or read about how they work it inspires me to make something myself.

    Have you heard Kevin Ayers Whatevershebringswesing? That’s worth a listen:

    OOh, must seek out the biography. I did read an article where he was talking about the period around this album but that was long ago and I have no idea where I read it. But yeah, the whole thing. In fact, I would I say I can't not listen to the whole album.

    Shleep is nice, as Pichi said - a similar feel to Rock Bottom.

    The book's really good. He's had such a colourful life, that it's an enjoyable read even for non Wyatt fans.

    Excellent, will put that on my reading list. Have started reading All Gates Open: The Story of Can, but struggling to keep reading so far.

    Ah ok...that one's on my list, be interested to hear what you think of it. I think you'l like the Robert Wyatt book, one of those you don't want to finish.

    I read England's Hidden Reverse over Xmas. I bought it for the Nurse With Wound stuff, but it's also about Coil and Current 93 if you like any of that. Good book, bit hairy in places though.

    Loveless wins the prize for consistent artistic statement. Not sure if the songs themselves really stand out on their own (with the exception of Soon), but as an album it's cohesive and makes sense, as opposed to a disparate collection of excellent songs.

    Agree. After listening to it regularly for more than a quarter century, I finally feel like I have an actual answer to "What's your favorite record?"

    I never listened to the reunion album (MBV), I should try and track it down.

    It's really great. Most of the songs are from the post-loveless session with new overdubs. Wikipedia has a pretty good breakdown of old vs new parts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/M_b_v_(album)

    It's on YouTube but it does feel like a bit of sin.

    Violator - Depeche Mode

    Nice one. Pretty much a perfect record from start to finish for me. Especially when heard via a good pair of headphones. So many bits of sonic magic going on from Alan and Flood that are hard to hear otherwise.

  • Television - Marquee Moon

  • edited February 3

    So many, but a quick list...

    Aesop rock - that impossible kid
    Aesop rock - none shall pass
    Malibu ken - Malibu ken

    Martin nonstatic - ligand
    Martin nonstatic - granite
    Martin nonstatic - inner landscapes
    phasin - init 1
    polarity - ambient and chill tapes
    fingers in the noise - black ep
    Vauge contrast - back and forth
    ambientium - fall
    Clark- empty the bones of you
    connect.ohm - 9980

    Pink Floyd- dark side of the moon
    Beck - odelay
    bon iver - 22 a million
    Granson- a modern tragedy

    Elusive- cosmic web
    flying lotus - you're dead

    Ashra Temple new age of earth

    Do you have ‘The Private Tapes’ CDs? I’ve listened to them hundreds of times. My fav from Manuel Gottsching along with Correlations and Blackouts.

    Yes yes yes yes. I came in here to say E2-E4. Track 4 on New Age of Earth (the long one) is the pinnacle of analog synth music to me. Gives me chills every single time. Eloquentes Wiesel from the Private Tapes (even longer, approaching 30 mins I think is another super favorite.

  • @syrupcore said:
    Television - Marquee Moon

    Absolutely - I forgot that one. Saw them play most of it in Birmingham.

  • Last year’s selection of front-to-back albums for me:

    Oneohtrix Point Never’s Age Of seemed like a fantastical sequenced album. Also I can’t not listen to the whole of Daphne and Celeste Save The World because every song is just so perfect. Finally, SOPHIE’s Oil Of Every Person’s Un-Insides seems like a complete journey from start to finish - can find it in me to break the sequence up.

    All time favorite artist for me and a big influence on my approach to guitar.

  • The first Rise Robots Rise album - it’s the one with the white cover & three primitive graphic figures in black and white w/ red in the band name logo. I bought this one on a whim - unheard & unknown - and I absolutely revere this collection of fantastic songs!

    Same, his phrasing at times is so playful and fun when he'll have a 5-note riff and then just play around with the timing and note order.

  • Sheep on Drugs - Greatest Hits

    The Velvet Underground - Live 1969

    the ultimate summer afternoon barbecue album.

    Talking Heads - Remain in Light

    +1 but I also like "More Songs ..." I particularly like the way the last four songs on the first side build up to 'Found a Job'.

    oh and Nimbin FM Radio Handpicked and Homegrown double vinyl edition...beacause Im on it 😀

    It's not on Soulseek. What's on it?

    INFO: for those not in the Asia Pacific region Nimbin is a country town in NSW Australia known for a hippy festival in the 70s and subsequent agricultural production.

    Homegrown is a series of releases featuring local musicians which is auspiced and promoted by Nimbin FM radio. To qualify, the artists should be local to the village of Nimbin and its surrounding hills ; and be a recent composition.
    I am not sure which streaming services it is released on, but it is sent to community radio organisations around the world.

    Lovely bit of Daevid there. Me and my mates used to play that one incessantly, when we were driving around in our hippy bus to festivals...ooooh...long time ago. Good driving music.

    Was lucky to see Here & Now play the whole Floating Anarchy set a few years back - no Daevid unfortunately, but bloody good.
