    Bob Dylan - 'John Wesley Harding'

    Bob Dylan - 'John Wesley Harding'

    On the 29th of July 1966 Bob Dylan was speeding through the backroads of Woodstock, New York on his T100 Triumph motorbike. In an instant he lost control, seconds later he crashed and found himself thrown onto the hard tarmac injuring himself badly. 
    ……Or did he?
    This is how an icon retreated from the spotlight and delivered an album that set him free….

    The Smiths - 'Strangeways Here We Come'

    The Smiths - 'Strangeways Here We Come'

    Before their 4th album The Smiths had signed for a major record label, the future looked bright for a band that had become indie icons with a series of strong releases. 
    However by the time the album was released, that bright future was non-existent....as were the band. 
    This is the final album from The Smiths

    Radiohead - 'OK Computer'

    Radiohead - 'OK Computer'

    On the 4th September 1995 Radiohead spent 5 hours in a studio with producer Nigel Godrich recording a song called Lucky for a charity album. 
    They didn’t know it then, but this one off session would change the course of Radiohead and rock n roll forever. 
    This is the paranoid, uneasy and beautiful story of OK Computer.

    David Bowie - 'Blackstar'

    On the 8th of January 2016, David Bowie released his 25 studio album, 2 days later he was dead.‬

    ‪The album acts partly as a diary and partly as a goodbye letter, just like his life David Bowie’s death was a work of art. ‬

    Oasis - 'Standing on the Shoulder of Giants'

    Oasis - 'Standing on the Shoulder of Giants'

    ‪With their fourth album Oasis hired a big pop producer and adopted a new sound to regain their title as the biggest band in the world. ‬

    ‪It didn’t work out.‬

    ‪But they might have made their best sounding album in the process. ‬
