My Record Collection by Fearless Vampire Killers' Kier Kemp

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 Fearless Vampire Killers' mainman Kier Kemp, let's see what he picks out...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"Bowling for Soup's Drunk Enough to Dance. I took on their teaching with gusto."

 

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

"American Idiot by Green Day. It sound tracked my teenage years and resonated with me in a way no album had before."

 

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

"Infinity on High by Fall Out Boy! I had it in my first car!"

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"Mika - Life in Cartoon Motion. So fun! Beautiful melody and amazing vocal performance."

 

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

"'The Pretender' by Jackson Browne. It’s got a beautiful melancholy to it..."

 

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

“Say Hello to Sunshine by Finch. Beautiful, honest and heartfelt. It’s amazing.

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

“The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance is amazing!"

 

The record with my favourite title is…

“1039/Smoothed out Slappy Hours by Green Day. Top that... well... anyone!"

 

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

"Too many to mention..., but I'd say x by Ed Sheeran."

 

The last record I bought was…

"Devil by Chiodos! Best album released in years!"

 

The greatest record of all time is…

“Queen II. What more do I need to say?"
