UK based producer and musician Pylon King takes us on a formative musical adventure with this week's playlist. '24 songs that made me want to start a band' features well known and more obscure gems from the punk and post-punk movements of the late 1970s.
“These are some of the records I bought as a teenager that were responsible for me starting a band. Perfect timing, I am so grateful to have been a teenager at this time when kids were doing everything wrong and in doing so making records that were so right!” Pylon King.
