My Record Collection by AWOLNATION's Aaron Bruno

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of AWOLNATION mainman Aaron Bruno, let's see what he chooses for us...

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"That would be Nirvana "Unplugged - I stayed up all night trying to teach myself the Leadbelly cover they played, all off of memory, because I couldn't record it."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"Radiohead's OK Computer or Neil Young's Harvest.  Both are masterpieces- Harvest for relaxing, and OK Computer to challenge the mind."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"Ceremony's Rohnert Park. These guys are the best hardcore/punk band out right now. Best live show as well."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots. This record just fits the mood. Great recording and songwriting as usual for Damon."

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"I'd say Rodriguez - Cold Fact. This is well covered in the documentary Searching For Sugar Man."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"AWOLNATION - RUN. Sorry, but I just adore this artwork!"

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"Refused "The Shape Of Punk To Come"- It was so confident and accurate. Still to this day, no one has come close."

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"Ummmmmmmm, I shouldn't say!"

 

The last record I bought was…

"tUnE-yArDs's Nikki Nakk"- She is unreal! I love her!"

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2015 is…

"Sickabod Sane - A new artist I was lucky enough to discover. Great pop songs, great rapper, perfect lyrics!"

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"Radiohead - OK Computer as it changed my way of thinking about music."

 

AWOLNATION'S new album RUN is released on Monday (March 16th).
