Diamanda Galás plays the one of the opening concerts of Antony Hegarty's Meltdown Festival at London's Southbank Centre tonight. In advance of the performance, she tells us about 13 albums that have been influential on her life and work


Miles Davis On The Corner

Crouch says [this] was "not jazz". One of the greatest records in the universe.

The sense of time, the restraint, the repeated riff with lots of space, is a ground for me. The way John Lee Hooker is, and of course, Miles wanted what Hendrix had, so the influence took him to another place. So many musical directions in one life is a rarity unto itself.
