"The sum of the following parts..."
Electric Harlow
Electric Harlow
"The so-called biggest influence on Omar's guitar playing, Larry Harlow, is at the centre of this salsa masterclass."
Ask the Ages
Ask the Ages
"A seeming fore-runner to Omar's atonal playing, this record shows Sharrock at his peak, with a fantastic backing band."
The Inner Mounting Flame
The Inner Mounting Flame
"The Mahavishnu are massively more disciplined than TMV, and the comparisons Omar gets to Mclaughlin are flattering, to say the least, but an obvious precursor to TMV in many ways."
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
"Hugely influential sonic wanderings. Whether or not the influence on TMV is only found in the tradition of taking LSD is debatable."
Sextant
Sextant
"Along with Electric Miles (see below), a rather obvious influence on TMV's groovy side."
A Tribute To Jack Johnson
A Tribute To Jack Johnson
"Featuring possibly the best band ever (Cobham, Hancock, Davis and Mclaughlin)...a serious influence on Jon's drumming and the more indulgent aesthetic, inherent in TMV."
Homogenic
Homogenic
"The best album from the woman who Cedric claims to be his biggest singing influence."
Jealous Again
Jealous Again
"Mix Greg Ginn with Robert Fripp and they'd have Omar-shaped offspring."
Ege Bamyasi

"Cited regularly by the band as one of their main inspirations and loves."
Third

"A weird and wonderful psychedelic fusion ensemble oft compared to TMV."

King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown
"Omar and Cedric explored dub in De Facto but remnants of its influence still remain."
Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos
Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos
"Perhaps another formula from which you would derive Omar would be Marc Ribot + Andy Gill from Gang of Four."
Crime And Dissonance
Crime And Dissonance
"Famed for his work with Leone, Morricone can be found all over TMV. Especially on Miranda..., from Frances the Mute."
Emergency
Emergency
"Along with Billy Cobham of the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Elvin Jones, Tony Williams would appear to be the jazzy influence on Jon Theodore."
Hissing Prigs in Static Couture
Hissing Prigs in Static Couture
"Cedric considers Brainiac the band to succeed where At the Drive-In failed."

"More recently, the band have stated a like for Battles..."

"For Hella..."
La Maison De Mon Reve
La Maison De Mon Reve
"And for CocoRosie. However, these are just the rather obvious musical influences..there are multiple cinematic, artistic references and indeed musical influences untouched by this."
