part one of B Movie’s top 10 albums is here

Henryk Mikolaj Górecki – Symphony of Sorrowful Songs
Amazing and emotional piece about the Holocaust victims. Made me pull the car over and listen when I first heard it on the radio.

Wire – Chairs Missing
Post punk masterpiece. Melodic, atmospheric, disturbing and funny. A big influence on early B-Movie.

Joy Division – Closer
Melancholic grandeur, at turns violent, tender, sometimes stunningly beautiful. Post Curtis suicide it was even more poignant. Great use of technology too.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Self Titled Debut
There was something soulful about the sound that grabbed you. The songs were perfect synth pop but the bass guitar added another dimension

Ultravox! – Ha Ha Ha
The final album by the John Foxx led Ultravox!, where producer Conny Plank fused their glam rock and punk guitars with electronics,creating an atmosphere of disconnection and observation.
