Josh T. Pearson guides Nick Hutchings through the personally sacred songs of his Baker's Dozen, from the Bad Seeds to Gorecki, Spiritualized to MBV and why Texas ranchers were no fan of Morrissey's work ethic


The Cure – Disintegration
They were huge in Texas, which was surprising, but thinking about it, it was real existential. I could say "Texas-stential". The wide-open plains – it makes sense. They'd sell out the Texas stadium in the 80s/90s, 50 thousand people or something, massive, and then you'd get these shitkickers there watching this dude in drag, face all painted. It was pretty cool.

It's the song writing that's as good as it gets – it's intriguing and it's just out of your reach so you want to know more about it.

Disintegration is just a good one to start, they're all good, Pornography, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Standing On A Beach – that singles one that's a good collection.
