“I think sometimes I gravitate towards albums where the band or artist really doesn't hold back and you can tell this is the exact sound they intended. M83 created an over the top, bombastic, crescendo-filled spectacle of a double album that really puts me in this universe where people turn into frogs and it seems like your dreams are becoming real.
⠀
They really went for it on this one, and even though the production gets a little cheesy here and there, it feels intentional. They're proud that it's super synth heavy and sometimes you can just throw a saxophone on top of a track for good measure. At over an hour long, you're exhausted by the time it's over, but you'll look back and think about what a crazy, wonderful electronic ride it was.”

"My husband & I had our first date 13 years ago on a Sunday Morning at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. After months of having an amazing online relationship (Myspace), we planned to finally meet at an Andy Warhol exhibit: 'Andy Warhol’s Dream America'.
⠀
Right after the exhibit we got into his car and we played 'The Velvet Underground & Nico' album.  It was the most special & amazing first date ever.  After 10 years of dating we got married. Three months after the wedding we found out I was pregnant, and now, two and half years later, we have our beautiful daughter named, Nico.
This record was the beginning of our special and beautiful history."

“I bought this the week after Record Store Day, and I remember I had come back into the West End because I had records waiting for me at the stores Sounds of the Universe and Phonica. So I came over to If Music, and was just sitting here hanging out with the guys when Jean-Claude [owner of If Music] put this on; I’d never heard of it, and as soon as I did I was like “don’t put it on the website, that’s coming home with me!”
⠀
It’s from 1985 but it’s Jazz. Jazz was horrendously un-cool in 1985. That was the year of Run DMC and Mantronix; I don’t think Jazz had been less cool in its existence! The record sums up everything that Jazz should be; it hints at spirituality, struggle and optimism. If I didn’t come into a record shop like If Music, there’s no way I would have known about this Jazz record from the 1980’s.
⠀
I used to work near here, and when I found out about the shop I was always just nipping upstairs to have a look. I used to work with like 200 people, and no one knew what it was I was nipping upstairs for; they had this theory I had a fancy woman or it was a knock-in shop! They’d see me disappear for an hour then come back all happy!”

“My musical side was always inclined towards heavy metal. But never, as a teenager, would I have realized the magic that would be born from this genre. One day, a great friend gave me this album and from that day onwards my musical perspective changed completely. ‘Master of Reality’ made me realize that the world began with the most amazing and creepy riffs I had ever heard, given by Tony Iommy's guitar. Until now, I couldn't stop thinking about how Black Sabbath  continued to influence so many bands and so many genres. This album still gives me the chills. It's hard to decide which Black Sabbath album is the best, but ‘Master of Reality’ is my essential album and the soundtrack of my whole life.”

Record: Thirteen.
⠀
“It is strange for me to pick ‘Thirteen’ out of ALL the albums in my collection. And it definitely wasn't the first Teenage Fanclub record I ever heard. In fact, my love for this record only started growing more and more, the older I got. I was a huge fan of ‘Songs From Northern Britain’ and ‘Grand Prix’ in the late 90's. All in one year I had discovered Liz Phair, Radiohead and Teenage Fanclub and it was probably the most important year of my life...even if i was only 8 years old.
⠀
Believe it or not, I was listening to Teenage Fanclub well before I had ever heard of Radiohead. It was my camp counselor who heard me listening to Grand Prix on my discman and immediately decided to "take me under his wing" and swap discmans with me on field trips, which ultimately got me into Radiohead’s ‘My Iron Lung EP’ and ‘The Bends’. Obviously, getting him into Teenage Fanclub in the process. But ‘Thirteen’ and ‘Bandwagonesque’ almost went unnoticed for me until I went away to college. I always heard my dad playing them, but never sat down to listen on my own.
⠀
I really love everything about this album and I'm sad it took me so long to sing its praises. This probably isn't my favorite Teenage Fanclub album but I wouldn't love music the way I do today without it. So, naturally when I started collecting vinyl, this was one of the first records on my wantlist. (The only original TF in my collection is ‘Songs From Northern Britain’ and a ‘Start Again’ 12" single). Everything else is a reissue and yes, my copy of ‘Thirteen’ includes the Bonus 7"...in case you were wondering.” #teenagefanclub #thirteen #vinylchapters #vinylnerd #vinyladdict #vinyljunkie #vinylcollection #vinylstories #vinylgram #longlivevinyl #vinyllove #loverecords #instavinyl #musiccollection #albumart #longlivevinyl #musiconvinyl #musiccollection #records #recordplayer #childhoodmusic #vinylcollector #vinylenthusiast

“It was difficult picking my favourite records, but I had to go with my gut on my first choices. I’ve picked these two as ‘Whole Lotta Love’ is my favourite song of all time, with Robert Plant’s voice taking me to another realm. Closely followed by ‘Stairway to Heaven’, which was controversial at the time for being over 8 minutes. Led Zeppelin refused to trim it to please record labels, which is something I admire as they stuck to their guns. It’s also ironic to me now as almost all the tracks I have in my sets are, by techno standards, around 8 minutes long.
⠀
My love for Rock has definitely manifested into the music I choose to play now. Heavy base, big synths. My mum and dad were massively into their Rock n roll.  My mum has seen everyone from Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Queen, The Eagles, The Who, Rolling Stones to the Beatles. So it was inevitable these would be some of my favourite bands and records. Her Vinyl collection is just insane and now I absolutely treasure them.”
