My Record Collection by Third Eye Blind's Stephan Jenkins

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 Third Eye Blind mainman Stephan Jenkins, let's see what he's picked out...

 

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

"The first record I ever bought was 'ABC' by the Jackson Five. I got my mom or dad to buy it actually, I don't know which, child of divorce and all."

 

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

"The record that made me want to be in a band was The Beatles - 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'. It's funny, I don't really like it much now."

 

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

"The record I've played more than any other is Alabama Shakes - Sound and Color. That's saying a lot since it just came out."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"This is Chet Fake - Built On Glass. I really don't know anything about this record but I heard it last night and it made me feel good. Ergo, a feel good record. But I had just returned from two weeks' surfing in Indonesia, so I was relaxed and completely f***ed on jet lag. So who knows, but that's my choice."

 

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

"This Mortal Coil - It'll End in Tears'. The voice of Elizabeth Fraser and that delicious dreariness. Play it again Sam."

 

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

"Third Eye Blind - Out of the Vein". Unheralded genius, kind of..."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Weekend's Jinx (Crucial - Not The Weeknd, but Weekend, the shoegaze band). Really anything Shaun Durkan designs is great."

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"Blink-182's Take Off Your Pants And Jacket.  Oh ho ho! Such wit, such ribaldry."

 

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

"Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City, irritating because they're also pretty good. I find the less the critics rave, the more I like them."

 

The last record I bought was…

"TV On The Radio - Seeds. But I got it same day as the Jack Ü record. So it's a tie. No fighting boys."

 

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

"I'd say Spencer Barnett's new record and No Wyld's new record."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

" Led Zeppelin IV. But as I'm saying this I'm in absolutely no mood to hear it. Weird..."

 

Third Eye Blind's new album Dopamine will be released in October. It is available to pre-order on the right-hand side of the page.
