K. Patterson "self_impressed"
 
Funhouse

"This smells of sweaty sex and beer. Woooo! '1970'"
Shot

"It's not cool to like any album after they left Touch and Go but GGGarth made them sound really scary and dangerous. 'More Beautiful Than Barbie.'"
Meantime (1992)
Meantime (1992)
"Every modern rock band owe Page Hamilton their royalties. As epoch making as 'The Shape of Jazz to Come'. 'FBLAII'"
Welcome To Sky Valley
Welcome To Sky Valley
"This is so heavy it suffocates you. 'Whitewater'"
The Rich Man's Eight Track Tape
The Rich Man's Eight Track Tape
"Steve Albini doesn't appreciate the CD version, but its got added tracks from the other EPs which are great too. Nasty and annoying and repetitive but really good. 'Stinking Drunk'"
Daydream Nation
Daydream Nation
"This is such an amazing epic piece of music. It's all about huge sounds and little epiphanies. 'Rain King'"
Physical Graffiti
Physical Graffiti
"It hasn't got most of the hits on, but this is their most consistant album and covers all the good things about Zeppelin. 'Wanton Song'"
Angel Dust
Angel Dust
"Its a bit funky, its a bit heavy, its a bit shouty and a bit singy. Mike Patton is god. 'Caffine'"
The Shape of Jazz to Come
The Shape of Jazz to Come
"This really is a great record - once you get past the stigma attached to free jazz there are some great riffs on here. 'Lonely Woman'"
Pre Millennium Tension
Pre Millennium Tension
"No one gives Tricky his due -  without him there'd be no Sugababes/ Dizzee Rascal. This is trip hop noir and the only person who doesn't sound worried is Martina. Who sounds lovely. 'Christiansands'"
Mezzanine
Mezzanine
"This is a record that sounds like Pandora's Box - epic but in a small space. 'Inertia Creeps'"
Cat Cobra
Cat Cobra
"Not as danceable or polished as anything else they've done, but they sound like a cross between Pavement and The Jesus Lizard which is no bad thing. See them live. 'We Got Boxes'"
Aenima
Aenima
"After this album they appear to have dissappeared up their aneima, but this is majestic and epic and mysanthropic. 'Third Eye'"
Terraform
Terraform
"The first track is twelve minutes long and the riff has four notes. Its an experiment in audience endurance. 'Canada'"
Ritual De Lo Habitual
Ritual De Lo Habitual
"'Nothings Shocking' is easier to get into, but 'Three Days' is possibly my favourite song ever."
Endtroducing.....
Endtroducing.....
"This sounds oceanic and infinite. 'Stem/Long Stem'"
The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico
""Every one of these goddam bohos is gonna go start a band." This is a record that you couldn't overrate. 'Venus In Furs'"
Bitches Brew
Bitches Brew
"Its an all purpose groovy be-atch of a record. The greatest ever vegetarian. 'Spanish Key'"
Manic Compression
Manic Compression
"The rhythmn section sounds immense  and the guitars are massive too. 'East 3rd Street'"
Half Nelson
Half Nelson
"This a great sleazy party record and sounds a bit like The Jesus Lizard but they're from Doncaster. 'Oily Rag'"
Bow Down To The Exit Sign
Bow Down To The Exit Sign
"This has all the good genres covered, but not in a cheesy crap way. Bobby Gillespie, Martina Toply Bird and John Spencer are on it. 'Slip Your Skin'"
Second Coming
Second Coming
"I don't get why no one likes this album. Fantastic guitars, fluid drums and bass, and Ian Brown is up there with the best frontpeople. 'Daybreak'"
Lo-Def(Inition) Discord
Lo-Def(Inition) Discord
"This band could have been huge. Think the epic-ness of Tool, but crossed with Napalm Death. There are a lot of ideas on here and its an interesting album. 'Withered'"
Infernal Love
Infernal Love
"Its not as bedroom angsty as Troublegum, a great rock record from when they didn't have to try to be 'cool' because they never were. 'Me vs You'"
