The top 1o favourite albums from the rest of Robert King’s current band…

William Baird

Sorry, took my time… I hate lists, fucking stupid…
THE ROLLING STONES – Exile on Main St.
The last Stones album that meant anything, saved my life once or twice.
THE FROGS – It’s only Right and Natural
Gay sex rules!
JAMES BROWN – Live at the Apollo
Wish I was at this gig, best live album I’ve ever heard.
Beautiful. And the same name as my bird. Grace that is, no Jeff.
T REX – Electric Warrior
Would have said Slider, but Coco and Rab said that. Also this is just as good.
More songs about shagging. Andre is a true original and doesn’t get enough respect I reckon.
Any of the first 3 albums would have done, but today I say Raw Power. Reminds me of shagging too.
Shagging on E (well probably just cuddling and talking about your feelings, mannn). The Mondays and Martin Hannett, love the production, not everybody did… their loss.
Z/28s – Wrecks from the Highway
In my top 5 Edinburgh bands. Space cadets, love them.
SCARS – Author! Author!
One of Scotland’s greatest ever bands. Singer’s a bit of a character though.

Russell Burn

Funkadelic -One Nation Under A Groove

Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band – Safe As Milk

Richard Hell + The Voidoids – Blank Generation

Kink Tubby-Meets Rockers Uptown

No New York

Sly And The Family Stone-There’s a Riot Goin’ On

“Head”- A Snog On The Rocks

Lydia Lunch-Queen of Siam

Vic Godard & Subway Sect-Whats the Matter Boy?

Slade-Slade Alive(cassette)

(in no particular really !)

Colin Whitson

These albums are in no way a favourite top ten, there are far too many excellent albums and as I write this more and more are coming to mind which are brilliant…… but here off the top of my head are the most inspirational for me which first spring to mind

Never Mind the Bollocks – Sex Pistols
Moving Targets – Penetration
Kick out theJams – MC5
Slider – T Rex
Funhouse – The Stooges
Live at the Esplanade – Lime Spiders
Real Life – Magazine
Hymns off Faith – Crisis
Nuggets Original Artyfacts 1965/68 – Various Artists
Opium Kitchen – coming soon

Once written I notice no Sleaford Mods , Wobble and  Levein,  Roky Erickson and the Aliens,  Johnny Cash or Motorhead or Trojan Singles or The Mob  or Love  or or or I could go on and on and on and on …I specifically am inspired by my last choice in the list!!!!!
