Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

6. RadioheadOK Computer

The reason I picked this album is not just because it’s an amazing piece of work but it was that really golden time where you’d rush out to the shops to buy an album, and then listen from beginning to end just to take it in. I’m sure my sixteen-year-old son does that with music, but when you’re young you feel like you’ll always feel like that, but now I listen to music in a very different way. OK Computer for me was really part of that – it was so spectacular, bold and exciting. It’s really phenomenal.
