Low and Retribution Gospel Choir play in the UK next week. In advance of a full interview on the Quietus next week, frontman Alan Sparhawk spoke to Dale Berning about his thirteen favourite albums


AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
That was probably one of the first records I bought. I was in junior high, about 11-12, and it was the nastiest bad-ass record for a kid my age. I just thought they were so cool, they sounded good. Back In Black was also a great record, but Dirty Deeds had a certain sound to it, not the typical AC/DC sound – it’s a little more raw, it’s not as thick, it’s dirtier. I could probably still sing all the songs now.
