Baker's Dozen

Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives


Chic – Risqué (Atlantic, 1979)

Don’t underestimate the Nile, the Nile is within you. When it comes to disco, people don’t understand tequila sunrises, girl’s handbags and bad aftershave… it’s fun. It gets the girls dancing. This is ‘Good Times’, the bass line that launched the thousand trillion versions, not to mention Queen’s ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and ‘Rapper’s Delight’ by Sugar Hill Gang.

Selected in other Baker’s Dozens: Lord Spikeheart, Tom Ravenscroft
