Long Players: Writers on Albums That Shaped Them # 1 Deborah Levy - David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars


'Its effect was nothing less than throwing petro at the naked flame of teenage longing and desire for another sort of life.' Deborah Levy

Not an essential read by any means but a good one for a long bus or coach trip. Writers pick an album that shaped them and explain why. From a set of articles originally published in The New Statesman. The articles are too short to really satisfy the trainspotter-ish likes of me. But it does give you the opportunity to think about the record concerned and possibly investigate the writer further. Staring with an album that changed the lives of countless thousands.
