Much as we love a well-recorded album, occasionally nothing can beat a really dirty production.
When you listen to the Ramones first album, you are not listening for transparency and clarity, you’re listening for amphetamine-fuelled rake-thin teenagers playing in a garage band.
In fact that’s the operative word, I like my garage bands to sound like they were recorded in a garage.
So, on this slightly contentious subject, we’d like to know what your favourite badly-produced album is. Whether it’s the headbutt of noise that is The Stooge’s Raw Power, the lo-fi fidelity scratchy strangeness of Daniel Johnston’s ‘Yip Jump Music‘ or the compressed-to-death-but-perfect for-playing-loud-in-a-pub Oasis first album, let us know here.
