The concept couldn't be simpler: think of your favourite artists, write to them asking for their ten favourite songs and then compile them into a list.
So that's what the guy's at The Beat did and got Spacemen 3 and Spectrum man Sonic Boom to provide a tracklist not a million miles away from his legendary 'Spacelines' compilation.
- Red Crayola - Former Reflections Enduring Doubt
- Joy Division - Shadowplay
- Panda Bear - Comfy In Nautica
- Stereolab - Tomorrow Is Already Here
- 13th Floor Elevators - Reverberation
- Pere Ubu - Final Solution
- Laurie Anderson - The Big Top
- Missa Luba - Sanctus
- Bo Diddley - Great Grandfather
- The Tornados - Telstar
- Daniel Johnston - True Love Will Find You In The End
