While we’re talking lists and such…

“The Best Albums Ever…Honest” is a list by Wire critic and Telstar Ponies main man David Keenan. It’s problematic (aren’t they all…) because it falls squarely between the twin poles of idiosyncratic (good!) and conventional canon reinforcement (bad!). Keenan’s certainly a rockist (Robert Johnson, blah blah; Rolling Stones & Zep, yaaaaaaaawn; no disco or dance or funk outside of Maggot Brain; hiphop?, why Public Enemy of course…and then we all go narcoleptic.) But any list which includes Tiny Tim, Throbbing Gristle and Belle and Sebastian is worth at least a look.
