Bob Bert is a bit of new York legend- after all, this was the drummer who played on those classic Sonic Youth records and then drummed for Pussy Galore- part primal, part smart his drumming is arguably the greatest on the post no wave scene. Still very much in demand he was playing for Lydia Lunch a fouple of weeks ago and is always popping up somewhere.
We asked Bob for his favourite ten albums and he replied with this interesting selection…
1. Velvet Underground & Nico
2. Stooges – Fun House
3. Bob Dylan – Blond On Blonde
4. New York Dolls
5. Modern Lovers
6 MC5 – High Times
7. Heartbreakers – L.A.M.F
8. Richard Hell and The Voidoids
9. No New York Comp
10. Buzzcocks Single Going Steady
