Prince Buster - Wreck-A-Pum-Pum
There's a lot of personality to this album. A lot of really funny, sly lyrics. Slyly dirty lyrics. I didn't know Prince Buster whatsoever but a guy I did an interview with in Australia gave me a CDR, it was back when you shared CDRs, and this CDR had a bunch of albums on it, including the first Deerhunter record I ever heard and then this album. I kind of didn't think that any of this music would be good but I imported it anyway and I just started listening and then slowly every now and then something would reveal itself and this was one of the two that really had a huge impact. It's a fun and funny record. It's not heavy but it's very cool.
