Dan Buck Joyce Top Ten
This weeks Top Ten is from Dan Buck Joyce from Dirty Sanchez!
- FUGAZI “13 SONGS” Always loved Fugazi, still do, their music is so timeless, and their message is as relevant today as the early 90s when I used to listen to them. Margin Walker has been on my playlist recently.
- PUBLIC ENEMY “IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK” Public Enemy were massive when I was growing up, and I always wanted to see them play liver, luckily I worked on the house of Vans campaign and my dreams came true, Flavor Flav even gave the wife a spuds.
- GANG STARR “STEP IN THE ARENA” I had this album on loop for an eternity, I’m sure if I listened again it would all come straight back. In fact I think I might dig out my copy.
- CROSBY, STILLS & NASH “S/T” I grew up in a small village in Cornwall where there were only 20 houses, so I spent my weekends with my friends sat around an open fire listening to my mums music collection. This was a real road trip soundtrack. My friends had a clothing company called Siesta in the 90s, we used to go on the road selling the clothes out the back of the car. This album reminds me of those times.
- PETE ROCK & CL SMOOTH “MECCA AND THE SOUL BROTHER” The majority of my music taste came from American skate videos, I can’t remember where I first heard this, but it defined a time for me that was so fresh and progressive, hip hop was at its best and so was skateboarding.
- THE PHARCYDE “BIZARRERIDE” This was another album influenced by Mike Carrol and the SF skate scene.
- WU TANG CLAN “36 CHAMBERS” Then from out of nowhere came the Wu Tang Clan. This album really was like nothing I had heard before and really made such a big impression on hip hop. The flow and the lyrics were straight from another dimension and it was so original. Wu Tang forever.
- THE NOTORIOUS BIG “READY TO DIE” Biggie, NYC, mid 90s.
- MASSIVE ATTACK “BLUE LINES” Massive Attack “Blue Lines” is probably one of the best albums of all time, it doesn’t age. It’s an album that will go down as one of the greats.
- STEVIE WONDER “SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED” Stevie Wonder inspired all of the above.
