Morrissey's favourite albums

The Quietus website has put up an article detailing Morrissey's top 13 l.p.s of all time..apparently with the sleeves scanned in by Mozza himself (this i find hard to believe, can you actually imagine Morrissey spending hours scanning?!) There's some pretty obvious choices- acts like Patti Smith, Velvet underground and Roxy music would appear in many people's favourite records, awell as some more obscure albums. Worth checking out!

(Un)Easy Listening Mix

Jocko Homo's original intent was to showcase not only the losing your mind on the dancefloor material but also the dustier sides of our record collections; the 'music that doesn't add up.' This is a 50 minute home listening/headphones mix i've put together. It features a range of experimental/electronic music from 1975-2010;industialists Throbbing Gristle to electronic pioneer Brian Eno's early solo material, via ambient Acid house, mutant disco, Post-punk and modern day electronica.

Akufen- Even white horizons
Radiohead- Reckoner (James Holden remix)
P.I.L.- Careering
Throbbing Gristle- Hot on the heels of love
Mr. Fingers- Can you feel it (instrumental)
