Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine: Released the same year I was born (1992). This was the first album I bonded over with a close group of high school friends, we eventually started covering a bunch of Rage tunes and distinguished our own early sound thanks to Tom Morello's signature playing. The riff style stuck with me with every band I played in from school till Crumpets, without Rage I'd be a Beatles fanboy.

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Unknown Mortal Orchestra: UMO's first release, I was pazzing in a garden after a night out while I was at uni and one of my friends threw this album on just as the sun rose. It was such a pivotal moment for me - the guitar techniques, the production, the vocal harmonies - I remember instantly falling in love with each track and it's always my go-to album when I'm rewiring the synapses.

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Stevie Wonder - Innervisions : I love this album because of the groove, it's such a powerhouse considering its age. 'Too highly ' is a brilliant commentary on drug addiction and American culture at the time and has some really cool production techniques on it. 'Higher Ground' is a banger that continues to be played regularly still today because it just had such a great rhythm to it. There's also that really good cover the Red Hot Chili Peppers did as well that brought heavier production to a great song.

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Mild High Club - Skiptracing: An album about a private investigator retracing the steps and sound of American music. It's a really diverse melancholic album that just has amazing production on it, and it can be played both when you're having a good time and a bad time allowing the mood to flow throughout. 'Chasing My Tail' inspired some vocal effect techniques I use in the studio, and 'Chapel Perilous' has that amazing shuffle groove inspired by bands like Steely Dan. Huge album.

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets ELO - Out of the Blue : This is a hugely influential album for me. I find it fascinating how these incredibly clever pop songs get wrapped up amongst huge string arrangements and dense vocal harmonies with nothing being lost, there seems to be infinite space in the mix for whatever detail they want to add- genius! Really love 'A New World Record' too.

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets The Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream: One of my all-time favourite albums. As far as alternative rock drumming goes, it doesn't get much better than this. When we record our music I often use Jimmy Chamberlin as a reference for how I want the drums to sound - punchy and warm maple! Aside from the drums, the songwriting is genius, and the playing is immaculate. I'm sure everyone's heard someone rave about this album by now!

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Bruce Springsteen- The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle: The sound of horn instruments warming up is the introduction to Bruce Springsteen’s The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle. The record is a musical masterpiece. One of my personal favourites from an artist that has so many records!

Record Shopping with Psychedelic Porn Crumpets Eagles- Hotel California: Another album that got me into playing music was the Eagles' Hotel California. I remember hearing the guitar licks and vocal harmonies and being instantly hooked!

Check out the video for Psychedelic Porn Crumpets' 'Keen For Kick Ons?' below. Their new album And Now For The Watchamacallit is out on May 31st. A massive shoutout to Camden Lock Vinyl for their generous hospitality.
