Wull from The Hollows Top Ten
This weeks Top Ten is from Wull from legendary Scottish band The Hollows!
10- the dukes of stratosphear – chips from the chocolate fireball……..this is produced to sound like a 60s record and it f*cking delivers man!! It’s the band XTC doing their own version of sgt pepper and it’s f*cking glorious!!! Look out for the track collideascope, the vocals are amazing!!
9- Ryan Adams – Gold….blew me away when I first heard this, some f*cking gems on this, rich as f*ck writing and his vocals and lyrics are spot on with the times, he’s a f*cking great songwritier, he’s took the “American country” genre to new heights!!! Honourable mention -demolition
8 – black rebel motorcycle club – BRMC……first album, they’ve never been sleazier than this, the f*cking drums alone on “love burns” first track sets the tone of this and as soon as everything comes in it sets you up for a f*cking dirty ride on the rest of the album!! Honourable mention baby 81
7 – the la’s – la’s…….lee mavers is a f*cking genius, 3 minute pop songs at their very best!! I’m actually glad they only ever done 1 album because they done everything on the 1st album!! They leave you wanting more which is in my opinion is just the way to go out!!!
6 – the jam – the gift….I f*cking know….how not all mod cons or setting sons or sound effects….well this was the first jam record I bought and it’s close to my heart, when growing up my da played those aforementioned albums to death and he never played the gift….i love those other records but I always felt as if the gift that piece of my heart!! Ghosts is still in my top 5 tracks of all time!!!
5 – Simon and Garfunkel live at Central Park…… this is an album I’ve had in my ears and on the vhs since I can remember, since then I’ve obviously checked out their albums and I love everyone of them but I don’t know how many nights I’ve had with my uncle Dek and we end up sticking this album on and we sing our f*cking nut of to this gig!! It’s all about that album taking you back to those memories!!!
4 – the Beatles– magical mystery tour…. the very first Beatles record I bought, strawberry fields forever i still listen to this day and find something new, I love the Beatles, every album they have done I love, I picked mmt just for sentimental reasons but I could have had 4 of my top 10 filled with Beatles albums!!!
3 – the coral – the coral…..I seen the coral live in king tuts before their album came out, I went there with zero expectations and by the f*cking sword of he man I was a fan by the 1st f*cking note they played!! I seen them live another 2 times before the album had even hit the shelves, I couldn’t wait on this album coming out!!! Once it did it changed my whole way of songwriting and song structure!! I love this f*cking record, the playing the voice the f*cking scally madness of it!! Love everything about this mob!!! Honourable mention night freak and the sons of Becker!!!
2 – ocean colour scene – Mosley shoals……a f*cking perfect record in my opinion, this album changed my life, every song on this is f*cking huge even the slower more melody driven tunes are higher than the f*cking sun!! It’s my shadow gets a special mention because it’s just f*cking perfection!! This album never tries too hard and it shows, it’s just f*cking genius songwriting, amazing execution on all fronts!! Honourable mention- marchin already…one from the modern!!!
1 – oasis– definitely maybe…..this album changed my f*cking life!!!! Without this I know for a fact I wouldn’t be who I am man!!! I heard this when I was 14 year old and by f*ck it was like a bolt of lightning hitting me and f*cking instantly changed as a human!!! It made me pick up the guitar, it made my whole point of view change on what a f*cking no hoper like me at the time could be!! They came from the same schemes that I was growing up in and gave c*nts like me hope!! I can’t praise oasis enough for what they have done for me!!! Obviously morning glory and be here now would be in my top 3 but I had to change it up a bit haha!!!
