My Record Collection by Public Access TV's John Eatherly

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 uncompromising rockers Public Access TV and their frontman John Eatherly, let's see what he picks out...

 

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

"It was Combat Rock by The Clash. The first time I ever went record I picked this because I knew the clash were "punk". Little did I know this would solidify my love for pop music more than anything..."

 

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

"This would be Is This It by The Strokes. I found out about The Strokes when the 'Last Nite' video first aired on MTV. They gave me a sense of everything was gonna be okay and a sense of belonging. This record was my gateway drug and I needed new clothes..."

 

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

"Marquee Moon by Television. It was in the midst of my punk phase where I would order punk CDs in bulk on the internet not even knowing what they sounded like. This record has soundtracked so much in my life. For me they have always been like stoner rock that your meant to drive around to while ditching class. It's funny to think that a song like 'See No Evil' could fit in flawlessly on the Dazed and Confused soundtrack. This is my guitar bible."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"Has to be Purple Rain By Prince. This is like when we need a pick me up in the van. One of coolest sounding records ever and super genius songwriting. I can't even wrap my head around how something can be so complex but actually sound incredibly simple. He's the master at this."

 

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

"This is Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan. It's Dylan's divorce record. When I'm feeling sad, I like to go all the way. No need to half ass it. If I'm gonna cry I want to sob and this is my ticket right here."

 

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

"Iggy Pop's New Values. People don't really bring this record up when talking about Iggy. But the sounds and band and production is spot on so cool. One of my favorite sounding records for sure."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Dr Dre's The Chronic, because it's awesome. He was ready to shine and made it himself. Super simple but so sick to come out solo with that cover."

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"It's Their Satanic Majesty's Request from The Rolling Stones. I don't think I need to say anything more here..."

 

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

"The Smiths. Enough is enough. Get over yourself. Yuck."

 

The last record I bought was…

"It was actually Fear Of Music by Talking Heads. My friend played me a song called 'Heaven' and I had forgotten about it so I had to get this album because that song is seriously good but the whole record is awesome. Probably my favourite record by them."

 

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

"Frank Ocean. I've heard rumours I hope are true. It will probably drop very very mysteriously. I'll be waiting..."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"This is John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band. Because when you have something you gotta say. You get straight to the point with simplicity."
