My Record Collection by Danny Goffey

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 former Supergrass sticksman and solo artist Danny Goffey, let's see what he picks out...

 


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

"This was Prince Charming - Adam and the Antz. I bought it because it was 59p in the bargain bin at Woolworths in the town where I lived. It was either that or buy a pack of sweets for a girl I liked but I saw her holding hands with another boy..."

 

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

"I'd go for Ian Dury's New Boots and Panties, because it’s the dog’s b*****s. It should be the national anthem!"



The record that always makes me feel good is…

"David Bowie's Hunky Dory. I especially love ‘Kooks’ because I’m crap at punching other people’s dads too…"



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

"This has to be Frank Sinatra's In The Wee Small Hours. Frank’s smooth tones mixed with Nelson Riddle’s arrangements are sublime and perfect to lift me from my despair."



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

"I'd go for The Modern Lovers' self-titled. Jonathan Richman is the man! An album of the awkwardness of growing up and falling in love."



The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Ira North - If I Were A Woman. No words are needed. Just look..."

 

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"This is Now That’s What I Call Music 5..."



The record I can’t understand why everyone loves is…

"Man’s Not Hot - Big Shaq. It's utter nonsense but apparently, a lot of 11 year old boys love it."

 

The last record I bought was…

"Al Green's 'Greatest Hits. He’s a new singer I’ve just discovered and he seems really good..."



The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2018 is…

"Schtick! by some rotten ‘erbert. I hear he took some sellotape, the things you find in “that” drawer you have in the kitchen, nicked a few beats and added some other stuff... Bob’s yer uncle!"



The greatest record of all time is…

"This is possibly Revolver - The Beatles, but this may change next week.. and the week after..."

 

Danny Goffey's new album Schtick will be released on June 22nd and is available for pre-order here.
