The new issue of Prog magazine includes an interview with me where I talk about my record collection, especially the prog-rock side of it. It was really fun to do. Thanks, Prog!
I was asked to pick ten significant records, and to keep it "purist" I confined myself to choices where I had the album on vinyl, even though, for instance, I might otherwise have included The Damned's Black Album.
These were my (not all strictly prog) choices:
The London Philharmonic Orchestra: A Stereo Space Odyssey
Genesis: A Trick of the Tail
King Crimson: In the Court/Larks Tongues
Hawklords: 25 Years On
Kate Bush; The Dreaming
B52s: Bouncing off the Satellites
Talking Heads: Little Creatures
Sound of Ceres: The Twin
War on Drugs: Lost in a Dream
A friend asked me why I hadn't mentioned The Fall. I felt that might have been pushing my luck just a bit...
