Th' Faith Healers - Lido
Again another band that made me realise that you didn't need to be super technically proficient in order to make amazing music. There were a lot of great bands around during that time from London, like God Machine and Silverfish and Th' Faith Healers all making noisy music.

It was a really good time, and that record Lido still resonates with me and I can hear its influence in the way I play still.

The music was really simple, they were playing a bass guitar with only two strings on it, that's all they needed to make great music. I try and keep that in mind when I am writing to this day.
