Name Jeff Ament
Current city Missoula, MT
Really want to be in Essaouira, Morocco
Excited about Top secret soundscape scoring gig.
My current music collection has a lot of EG Records stable, US hardcore 1978-1984, NY avant, Windham Hill.
You wouldn’t expect me to listen to Marillion’s Misplaced Childhood.
Preferred format Vinyl by far, but I’m lazy so MP3s in the car.
5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:
I just get lost in these pieces and hear different rhythms and melodies every time I listen…perfect companion for a fella by himself on an island.
So many layers, incredible shifts and colors. Bill Laswell remix is stunning.
Aliens have landed. This tour was maybe the best thing I’ve ever seen live, right next to 1983 Bad Brains.
Truly beautiful interplay, musicians really listening to each other. Uninhibited passion vocally. This and Mark’s solo record super influential.
Only because it’s two records, cuz they did not make a bad record. I’d be happy with any one of them. “In the Light” and “Kashmir” both otherworldly, which would be needed on the desert island.
This list took me five months to whittle down.
