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


The Ramones - The Ramones

It’s the seminal punk rock album ever and it's the album that inspired 10,000 punk bands. It's so minimalist and raw - the production and even the way it's recorded and mixed, with the guitar panel inside the bass and drums. It clocks in 23 minutes or something; it sorta set the tempo for at least one thang that punk-rock would become. The lyrics were sort of cartoony but they also had this stern attitude. It's the classic classic punk rock album.
