The Clash – ‘London Calling’
“Would have to say London Calling. So evocative and ambitious. As a teenager I really wanted to somehow be a part of their global revolutionary gang, and still kinda do.”
– Tom Russo (electric guitar and vocals).
Neil Young – ‘After the Goldrush’
“I listed to it religiously as a teenager, start to finish in the discman. I soaked up his style by emulating all his noodly bits.”
– Joe Russo (bass).
Stevie Wonder – ‘Innervisions’
“Every aspect of the album is untouchable. Genius.”
– Marcel Tussie (drums).
Stone Roses – ‘Stone Roses’
“Reni’s drumming is just the best. Resourceful, inventive, interesting but not distracting. The guitar and choruses are all time. The ethos is both punk and flower power.”
– Fran Keaney (acoustic guitar and vocals).
Priscilla Queen of the Desert Soundtrack
“Joe sent this to me with no explanation. I know Joe well enough to know he genuinely does love it. Just didn’t know how much. The guy loves to boogie.”
– Fran Keaney on behalf of Joe White (electric guitar and vocals).
