Desert Island Discs: No.3 ‘Empty Glasses’

Advertisements

I first came across ‘Empty Glasses’ by The Amps on the soundtrack to one of the many skateboarding videos I used to watch as a teenager. The Amps were a short-lived American band formed in 1995 by Kim Deal of The Pixes / The Breeders fame. Whilst at first listening this is a fairly unremarkable mid-90s indie-rock number, it’s certainly stuck with me for its raw, dirty energy and, probably, because it reminds me of the freedom and excitement of whole weeks spent skateboarding around the city. It also got me into The Pixes, about which, possibly, more later.
