    And this. First Crass song I ever heard. Instantly, I was hooked.

    Would've gone with Losing touch with My Mind for Sp3. Also, every live Spiritualized show.

    Black Angels too. Bad Vibrations.

    The end of Bowie's John I'm Only Dancing.

    I have no idea how I forgot about Spacemen 3 and Loop. The latter sometimes treated as a ripoff of the former, but I like both bands.

    Lebenden Toten. I can only do a few songs at a time, but I really like the band. My body starts to feel on edge.

    Wasn’t it two albums - “Arc” and “Weld”. One was his take on grunge, the other just one of feedback

    'Arc' by Neil Young is 35 minutes of feedback, apparently (not heard it). I liked his 'Ragged Glory' album at the time.

    'The Star-Spangled Banner' by Hendrix at Woodstock.

    A composer took the music and noted the whole score/album on paper to be played by a small group of classically trained musicians. I can understand why someone would want that challenge in a muscle-flexing, look what I can do kind of way. Once it had been scored, it was played in numerous venues but with voilin, cello etc. and gained new found attention from a more respected audience.

    I seem to remember an interview not long before he died where he was talking about how the album was being critically re-appraised, and in classic Lou Reed asshole fashion he was banging on about how he knew what he was doing all along, and only now were the stupid critics catching on to his genius in all things.

    New York is still one of my top 20 all-time albums, though.

    It's not a difficult or demanding listen, it just gets a bit samey and boring after the first track.

    I heard an interview with Graham Coxon in which he was explaining how satisfied he was with the feedback on Song 2, it is pretty good.

    One that I like a lot is "Whiskey RIver" by Comets on Fire. But not sure if it counts as feedback as when I saw them play, there was a guy with a box that made noises in the band and I think the feedback noise is that rather than a guitar. But it sounds like feedback to me.

    I had no idea that The Amboy Dukes once featured a young Jilted John (bottom right)…

    The 2 Wolfmen albums are full of it.

    My personal other favourites include Ronno on Let’s Spend the Night Together and Panic in Detroit, and the JAMC on Psychocandy. Also David Roback on a few things including Wasted by Mazzy Star.
    I clicked on it. Quite liked it too.

    I love the use of feedback on Sweetness Follows by R.E.M. Possibly my favourite song by them.

    JAMC did kind of use it as an effect, but many have used it as a palette.

    Sorry...was lazily referring to Psychocandy, which is probably a great album ... buried under 30 feet of needless fuzz.

    (I realize I'm alone in this opinion.)
