Following their interview about Black Bananas' new LP Electric Brick Wall, Jennifer Herrema talks Nick Hutchings through her Baker's Dozen of seminal records


Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
I had owned Frank Zappa Hot Rats and listened to it many times over the years, but left all my records behind in NYC when I moved to San Francisco, so I didn't listen to it again until years later when I got a lot of money from Virgin. I bought a farm and a studio and tons of records. I remember after re-buying these particular albums I would sit and listen to them over and over. 'Willie The Pimp', with its Captain Beefheart vocals always made me smile, and Neil and I fucked around playing it and singing.
