    Soundgarden - Louder Than Love (1989)

    The story put about was that Hiro, the old bass player, wrote lyrics for that song on a scrap of paper and Cornell decided to sing the note from his girlfriend scrawled on the back of it instead.

    Soundgarden - Louder Than Love (1989)

    Jaysus. 1989. I became obsessed with this record after seeing Chris Cornell and Kim Thayil interviewed by Vanessa Warwick on Headbanger's Ball. They were eating apples and being cheeky, then they played the Hands All Over video and I was sold. Listened to the LP again last night. Still great. A...

    Thanks. But I wouldn't have bought that saw without hearing Julian Koster playing on this and the Music Tapes record.

    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998)

    Also: The Jesus thing was probably the most discomfiting thing I could have heard on a record in 1998 as someone with a binary, reactionary attitude to religion who grew up listening to songs about Satan.

    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998)

    Maybe it's because I first heard this years ago before being quite so jaded but I still love this yoke too. Yes, he has a voice like a foghorn and there are no dynamics to his strumming, but I love the tunes, the instrumentation, the visceral production, Julian Koster's saw-and-what-have-you...

    David Bowie - Low (1977)

    I've had a couple of attempts to listen to Bowie music on other people's recommendations, but never got more than a song or two in before having enough. After he died the wife had the hits on a lot in the house, and I discovered that I only actually liked one or two of them (Space Oddity for...

    Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998)

    I like this loads and all but so far the only album club album that I didn't know really well is this fucking Bowie one. Looking forward to hearing something new soon. But til then this'll do. The bleedin' lovely saw.

    The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead (1986)

    @travispickle have you read You Never Give Us Your Money? Entertaining but grim book about the Beatles fallout. While I love QiD, I've seen live Smiths things where the drums and bass were really rocking and propulsive, but I never felt that they captured that on any of the studio recordings.
