The Monochrome Set – The Monochrome Set (I Presume)  

I really love this band, this song in particular has great drums.

Orange Juice – I Can’t Help Myself  

I am never not in the mood to listen to Orange Juice. Anything off Rip it Up is an amazing song and I think Edwyn Collins is a genius.

Fiction – Big Things  

These guys are a fun new bunch of rockers with a crazy groove sound. I have only heard a few songs so far but they all seem good and help me to be happy when I am in a fit of rage.

Phillip Glass – In The Upper Room: V. Dance V  

Anyone who knows me well we know that I listen to classical (old sounding) music constantly and often. My friend Andy Kinnear introduced me to this album by Phillip Glass and I have been listening to it a lot since.  I just sit around practicing my signature all day listening to this and it feels like I am making something very profound.

The Fall – Eat Yourself Fitter  

This is a crazy song for when I am in a crazy mood!

Delicate Steve – Wondervisions  

A friend recently introduced me to this band and now it’s always on in the studio and I am still not tired of it. Its one of the best albums I have heard in along time and it doesn’t even have any singing!

The Very Best – Warm Heart of Africa  

Anyone who knows me well will explain that I take my dance moves very seriously, and this song is one that gets me busy on the floor. If I don’t hear this song at least once a day I get drowsy and have a tantrum.

Nick Lowe – I love the sound of breaking Glass  

This is a great happy song.

John Brion – Theme To Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind  

I am a big fan of John Brion, especially the music he makes for films. This music is not good for parties or cool clubs as it will most likely make people feel sad.

Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons –  December 1963 (Oh What A Night)  

I am listening to this song as I am writing this and its helping me to describe why I like it so much. It’s so good isn’t it? This song goes on when I finish a project and then I hug my friend Dan for ages and we sing to each other and cry.
