With their new album Luminous released yesterday, The Horrors' frontman picks out some of his favourite (and, in fact, least favourite) illustrated covers in an artistic Baker's


David Bowie - Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
Scary Monsters isn't my favourite Bowie record although it's still pretty good - I think I just had to put him in because he's one of the coolest guys ever to have existed. That was the main reason. But of course there's great songs from every period with Bowie and there aren't many people you can say that about. My favourite Bowie album is Station To Station, but it doesn't have an illustrated sleeve and I've got that theme now.
