June's issue of Mojo Magazine lists "100 records that changed the world". Every record is reviewed by some artist (some of them I've never herard of though, I mean who the hell is Fionn Regan who reviews Neil Young's Everybody Knows....?)

Sonic Youth' Evol is ranked at #85, with Stuart Braithwaite from Mogwai saying:
<<
EVOL has a real immediacy to it - they were at the peak of their innovation, marrying this experimentation to a total pop sensibility. You get an errie beauty to something like Shadow Of A Doubt which is all down to their open tunings and harmonics.
Expressway To Yr. Skull is mind-blowing - that 'free noise' thing is a huge influence on Mogwai. For our first 10 rehearsals that's pretty much all we did.
They took something from the work of Glenn Branca and others, but they changed the way a lot of people make music - you can see their impact on so many groups, from obvious followers to Radiohead. even Neil Young. I went to Reading Festival in 1991 - I was 14, my big sister took me - and they closed with Expressway. That made me want to be in a band.
>>

Without this no ... Nirvana, Mogwai, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine


Then the Ramones selftitled album is at #22, with Thurston saying this about it:
<<
I was 18 and my father was dying. My family had been travelling back and forth, to and from the hospital, and I can remember stopping off at a record store. I stared at this album the whole way home thinking, What can these guys possibly sound like? It was kind of a morose scene around our house. I put the Ramones on and all my aunts and uncles and my mom and my sister got up and they danced to the whole record, whooping it up and letting off all this emotion. I was sitting there on the couch thinking, This is not what I expected, I expected something like a Stooges or an Alice Cooper record - something somewhat nefarious - but this struck right to the heart of feeling good. After that, I played it once or twice a day for over a year. I learned how to play guitar from it, and wrote a song called I'm Not Gonna Mow The Lawn No More. The Ramones were as much an alternative to punk rock as they were to the mainstream. Punk had this slovenly, fucked-up image, but here was this precision, sandblasting, no-frills rock'n'roll. There was diligence in the performance and the look, and beneath the humour there was a pathos in the lyrics. It's hard to say where rock music would be without the Ramones
>>

Without this no ... "Onetwothreefour!!"



Top 5 is:
5. Kraftwerk - Autobahn
4. Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin'Bob Dylan
3. Elvis Presley - Heartbreak Hotel
2. The Beatles - I Want To Hold your hand
1. Little Richard - Tutti Frutti



I haven't got a clue how they compiled this list. I mean the Libertines are ranked at #92. Who the fuck are the Libertines ??!! And Green Day's Dookie is at #95.... WTF?

No Dinosaur? That's stretching it a little far.

I don't want to encourage Libertines discussion but... Libertines are quite possibly the most popular british band (in britain) since they came out, they've done that thing that universally great bands seem to do reallly really well... convince ordinary and casual individuals with little interest in music to pick up guitars and start bands for themselves, and to pursue their new found interest in music.

And i'm not even a fan! But it's clear in the Underground in britain just how much of an influence the Libertines have been.

Ordinary people with little interest in music should not be in bands. It's quite clear that has been their influence, though- it would explain how many shit bands are coming out of Britain these days.

The Libertines (and i say this as an english person) suck giant ass all day for minimum wages. I'd rather listen to Boyzone that the libertines.

it's almost June so you could probably find it in stores now. But it's probabnly the worst issue of Mojo I've ever bought, not much worthwile in it. Haven't listened to the CD yet though, that looked pretty good.
