The Kooks' Luke Prichard and Hugh Harris join Classic Album Sundays’ Tina Edwards to celebrate 15 years of their debut album 'Inside In/Inside Out'.
Taking inspiration from the more extreme ends of guitar music, namely early-hardcore, dissonant no-wave, Sonic Youth were the Velvet Underground for the materialistic 1980s.
In 1999, the band claimed they would change music forever. With this album, few could dispute the enigmatic band’s radiant impact on modern rock music. Listen to the story and music.
The Main Attraction, Blowfly, DJ Shadow, Big Audio Dynamite and more feature in our playlist of sounds that inspired 'Since I Left You'.
Watch the full video as 30 years on from the release of 'Daydream Nation' Thurston Moore joins us to reflect on it's impact for National Album Day at The John Peel Centre For Creative Arts.
