Glen Johnson

formed in 1996 the band Piano Magic. Although the line up changed constantly Johnson released eight albums and several EPs. In 2009 he released a solo album Details Not Recorded. Furthermore he founded the Rough Trade sublabel Tugboat, on which bands like Low or ISAN put out their music.

a song that reminds you of school
The Specials - Too Much Too Young

When you’re a teen male, you’re invariably part of a gang of some description. The Specials were the ultimate gang for me. 

best Beatles song
The Beatles - Ticket To Ride

I don’t like them much, but something early like «Ticket To Ride».

best concert you ever attended
Dead Can Dance
Fugazi

Late 80’s. Obviously very different but equally life affirming.

a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Harry Nilsson - Without You

My mother would play it when she was going through a hard time in her marriage.

record you were looking for the longest
Felt - Mexican Bandits

Now I have three copies.

a record you fell in love to
ISAN - Beautronics
first record you remember
Gary Glitter - I'm The Leader Of The Gang

I was around 3 years old. I’m sure he would’ve wanted to be in my gang.

the song to be played at your funeral
The Durutti Column - Sketch For Summer
a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

Difficult question. I live in England. We don’t have great summers. Though «Pet Sounds» soundtracked an amazing fortnight in San Francisco, 1999. I haven’t listened to it since. 

your guilty pleasure song
Britney Spears - Toxic
Britney Spears - I'm A Slave 4 U
your ultimate heartbreak song
Red House Painters - Medicine Bottle

Coincided with the day of my first major breakup with a girl. It devastated me. It’s vague though somehow incredibly accurate.

perfect anthem for London
Piano Magic - I Must Leave London
your party anthem
CSS - Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above
first record you bought
Secret Affair - Time For Action
The Specials - Too Much Too Young

«Time For Action» i bought with my parents money. «Too Much Too Young» with my own money. I was a would-be rude boy.

a song that reminds your friends of you
The Smiths - Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

You’d have to ask them. Probably something miserable, like «Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now». They’ve got me all wrong. 

your favorite sing-a-long tune
The Cure - Three Imaginary Boys

In the tour van.

best soundtrack ever
Alberto Iglesias - Talk To Her

The soundtrack to the Pedro Almodovar movie.

your sunday morning song
