|1961 Chubby Checker - Let's Twist Again. I was a mean twister at 5. And won a prize for it.|
1966 Hendrix - Hey Joe. Beatles - Revolver. The moment music changed and would never be the same again. Watching Top of the Pops with your mum and wondering what just happened.
1971 Hawkwind - In Search of Space. I had no idea what this was about but I remember the joss sticks and candles. Genesis - Nursery Cryme. Saw them live. At School. On the album launch tour.
1976 Frank Zappa - Zoot Allures. He stopped being silly for a moment, shut up and just played his guitar. Live at Hammersmith Odeon
1981 BowWowWow - See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy! Music was so decadent that year. But this and Adam and the Ants was a breath of fresh air.
1986 Big Audio Dynamite - No. 10, Upping St. Samples of old Clint Eastwood movies
1991 Massive Attack - Blue Lines. Soundtrack to the whole decade, pretty much.
1996 Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants. Goa Trance was also happening but I kind of missed that. Mars! Needs! Women!
2001 Atmosphere - Lucy Ford. Blunted rap as a soundtrack to ExtremeSports skateboard videos.
2006 Burial - Burial. Pinch - Qawwali. The year that Dubstep surfaced into the mainstream.
2011 Holy Other - Touch. So much club/bass music. WitchHouse and TriangleCore was a diverting backwater. And then there was getting emotional to James Blake - Wilhelms Scream
2016 Aries - You Make Me Wanna. The exact moment when LoFi house jumped the shark. I 'kin love this shit. Is this a golden age or what?
