I'll be spending a few days at home in Leeds for a bit of home cooking and convalescence. Before I left I was asked to complete an inconsequential Facebook survey, and I do hereby present my reply...
The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose...
Nico - The Marble Index
Soft Cell - Non Stop Erotic Cabaret
Suicide - Suicide
Whitehouse - Great White Death
Scott Walker - The Drift
Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Kaleidoscope
Current 93 - The Inmost Light
Velvet Underground and Nico
Dopplereffekt - Gesamtkunstwerk
White Noise - An Electric Storm
Coil - Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1
ABBA - The Visitors
Chris and Cosey - Techno Primitiv
Kate Bush - The Dreaming
Granted that took a little over the allocated time, but still I think it's a decent selection. It captures a narrative and it does so better than any of the others I saw.
