With Pinch's Cold Recordings taking over Fabric Room 3 this Friday, Rory Gibb catches up with the Bristol figurehead to discuss thirteen of his favourite, formative albums


Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction

When you're nine years old, that's the album you need to have in your tape deck. It was just absolutely murdered. I can remember the feeling of going to your school disco when you're ten years old, and going to the DJ like 'Have you got any Guns N' Roses?', and they'd never fucking play any and you'd just be fucking pissed off. It was obviously not a particularly alternative album when you look back at it, but at nine or ten years old that was a rebel album, it was angry and it was different, and yeah, a great album. Shame Axl Rose turned out to be such a moronic psycho! But who cares, they made that album, they didn't need to do anything else.
