Louie Gatas talks to imperial grunge producer and Garbage man about his favourite albums


The Verve - Urban Hymns

'Bitter Sweet Symphony' is an absolutely gorgeous song. I love 'Sonnet'. 'The Drugs Don't Work' is a beautiful, beautiful song, as is 'Lucky Man'. I love the whole album – it has some classics on it. The production is amazing, it doesn't try too hard to hit you over the head. It's got these beautiful soft layers underneath Richard Ashcroft's singing and I think a lot of that is from Nick McCabe, who adds all these layers with his guitar playing. The album is beautiful and to me it sounds like it'll stand the test of time.
