This Is My Music: Dean Wareham's Favourite Albums

April Clare Welsh gets a rundown of the former Galaxie 500 frontman's all-time top 13 LPs before he comes to the UK to tour in support of his debut solo album next week


LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver
I needed to pick something from the last ten years and this is probably my favourite one from that timeframe. It was everywhere that year [2007] - pretty hard to avoid! Anyway, I guess some of my other records come from the 1981 period, e.g. New Order, and LCD Soundsystem use a lot of those kind of era sounds. There's a bit of Talking Heads in there too. They just make some great songs about New York, particularly Manhattan. You know, it has this great energy to it but it's still just become for the rich and I'm hyper aware of that.
