Chrome's Half Machine Lip Moves is both extremely poorly recorded and amazing for precisely that reason. It couldn't be better if they had agonised over every last detail but I'm guessing it's the greatest happy accident of all time.


A jaw droppingly great record, it sounds just the way it should.

Atom Heart Mother has a veiled, out of focus soft sound.

It works for that album though.

I find Tommy by The Who is similar, but it doesn't for that.

“A Trip to Marineville” by Swell Maps

Sounds like it was recorded inside a giant hairy, bogey-caked nostril. Absolute chaos. One of the best post-punk albums ever made. Part of its charm is that it feels like the artists have no concern about the masterpiece they’re sitting on, they’re just farting it out. It’s an absolutely thrilling experience.

Flaming Tunes by Gareth Williams & Mary Currie. Was originally a cassette-only release. It's so obviously a home recording but I don't think any studio production could beat it in the charm stakes.

Likewise, and obviously, everything by R. Stevie Moore.

Tommy sounds crap, well a lot of the guitars do.  Apparently due to running out of time and money Kit Lambert just left guide guitar tracks on which Townshend intended to redo properly.
