Various Artists - No New York
In Malaria! we had a close connection with New York and played there quite often, and one of the reasons why I first wanted to go to New York was because of this fantastic collection of music that was produced by Brian Eno. And for me it was a milestone, because as I said before, I was bored with the punk thing, and no wave seemed like a better way to go, the same with Throbbing Gristle. They were trying out new things, so I think this is a fantastic record. 

Lydia Lunch is on it, the Contortions too. D.N.A are on it with Arto Lindsay, and Mars as well, and they’re all great. For me, it's one of the most influential records ever. I just recently played with Lidya Lunch in Valencia actually. It was nice to see her but I won't say much about the concert.
