    Patti Smith

    Horses

      Patti Smith, godmother of US punk, political activist, poet and freedom fighter, was the first artist of the New York CBGB scene to get a major label deal (even before The Ramones). Smith's debut album invokes the spirit of her 1960s influences (Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix etc), updating them with a typically cool twist of NY art-rock. Produced by the Velvet's John Cale and featuring a powerful sleeve photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe, this inspiring 1975 set includes the classic gender-bending cover version of Van Morrison's "Gloria" and seven other self-composed tracks. In 2003 Horses ranked in the Top 50 of Rolling Stone magazines' "500 most influential albums".

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Mine says: To be honest with you, I hardly know anything else in Patti Smith's back catalogue (and when she plays 'Because the Night' live I make a run to the ladies) but I have once been told that I don't really need to know anything else she released and maybe that's true. If a record deserves to be called a classic it's this one.

      Quazar

      Quazar

        This 1978 LP is the only recorded output of Quazar, the follow up project of Parliament members Glenn Goins and Jerome 'Big Foot' Brailey. Very much in the P-funk style of crazed vocals, bubbling bass and supa-funky breaks, the album is a must for Parliament-Funkadelic collectors (originals go fo a tidy sum). Sadly Goins died before the album was completed, leaving his brother Kevin to finish the job using the vocals Glenn had laid down.

        Wakefield

        American Made

          Wakefield have honed their skills on tours with Homegrown, Reel Big Fish, Alkaline Trio, Early November, Autopilot Off, All American Rejects and Avril Lavigne. From St. Mary's County Maryland, the four members of Wakefield recorded "American Made" in Los Angeles in 2002. They're a mix of brash and sometimes poignant songs strung together by guitar riffs, staccato drum beats, and three-part vocal harmonies underscored by hook-heavy melodies that bounce around like ping-pong balls. Tracks range from the fierce guitar strains of "Sold Out" and the straightforward punk-pop morsel "Un-sweet Sixteen," to the ska-tinged, celebrity-jabbing "Infamous."
