Defining Albums of My Youth

Danyal H. Abbasi
 
Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine
"My friend's art teacher told him Rage were 'juvenile'. Well, f*ck that."
Weezer (The Blue Album)
Weezer (The Blue Album)
"i was turned onto this by my best friend's older brother who I always thought was dead cool. One of the best albums for a teenager wasting away in suburbia to listen to."
Polythene

"Strangely the only British band in my list (appart from Led Zeppelin), they were also the first band I ever saw live. Whereas Oasis reacted against grunge, the likes of Feeder embraced it."
Now I Got Worry
Now I Got Worry
"You get a bit older, you start to want to be 'punk rock'. You start to read fanzines instead of Kerrang. BX are one of my discoveries from that stage and still one of my favourite bands."
Pork Soda

"Well, the trying to be hip obviously didn't work, because I then started listening to sh*t like this. Actually I still like Primus and I don't agree with one friend's opinion that they're show-offy."
Led Zeppelin IV
Led Zeppelin IV
"By this point I was a certified 'drummer' and 'musician' who had aspirations to be 'dead knowledgable about music'. In this album's place could have been anything by Zappa, The Who, Miles Davis..."
1999
1999
"Just the most uplifting, sexual, vital stuff. Exactly what you need when you're trapped in a small apartment in Hammersmith. Prince would make even the most hetero guy question his sexuality."
Turn On The Bright Lights

"As much as I would deny it to myself, Interpol are very much My Favourite Band right now. Is it a coincidence that they're also really cool, well-dressed, about my age, intelligent? I doubt it!"
