Crate Minds: Canyons


Ryan and Leo take some time out from recording the debut Canyons LP in their Sydney studio to wax lyrical about their favourite wax's sleeves in this next installment of Crate Minds.

Love Corporation - Give Me Some Love (Andy Weatherall Remix) 12" (1991)

"This one just looks cool. It's got cool colours, it sort of sums up a particular decade: the 90's rave. It just sums up for me a period of time and has a classic look."

Pepe Bradock & The Grand Brule's Choir - Burning (1999)

"This is one of my favourite tracks as well. More to do with the track than the cover - the cover's just an added classic as well. The track's just insane."

Eugene McDaniels - Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse (1971)

"This record was banned for years because it was quite political. Some of the messages that were coming across were pretty heavy for the time."

Paul Mauriat and his Orchestrta - El Condor Pasa (1971)

"The cover sort of says it all, which is sick. It's a good vibe. Body paint, hot babe, a bit of monster-ish stuff: it's all good. It's all the good stuff"

Sylvester - Don't Stop 12" (1982)

"It's just classy. Just a classy look. Classy tune to match."

Wally Badarou - Novela Das Nove (Spider Woman) (1985)

"A bit of the same deal - a very classy tune. The cover's just really cool."

Milton Banana Trio - Balancando com Milton Banana Trio (1966)

"He's got a sick haircut. Great drums. All of his covers have his drum kit on them."
