Transgressive & Alien: ADULT.'s Favourite Albums
Daniel Dylan Wray , November 14th, 2018 11:52

As ADULT. prepare to tour Europe, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Miller tell Daniel Dylan Wray about their 13 favourite albums drawn from the tough and leather side of life, from Throbbing Gristle to Nitzer Ebb, Einstürzende Neubauten to Drexciya


Severed Heads - City Slab Horror
AM: This was a hard one to pick which record. Rotund For Success is also one of our favourites but we picked this one because - like all the other albums - it ebbs and flows between our definition of pop and experimentation.

NK: You can go from the song 'Guests', which is so haunting yet beautiful, to 'We've Come to Bless This House' an amazing song with so much great experimentation.

AM: I would say there's no other artist more than Tom Ellard that I will go to when working on a record and sit down with headphones on and listen to. Everything from the drum programming to the fact that he will get something that is almost pop and then add like this horrific distortion line. He always puts a hurdle in there. Like a lot of things we've picked there's a playful element but also a really severe side. I think he's a really brilliant writer.
