​Shaun Ryder The first album I bought
‘Pin Ups’/’Hunky Dory’ – David Bowie: “I stole my first albums ‘Pin-Ups’ and ‘Hunky Dory’ by David Bowie from the first super-sized supermarket in Salford, which also sold tents and camping gear. We would sit inside the tents drinking stolen booze and eating stolen cream cakes. The supermarket was called Scan. It was a fucking great place to play as a kid, much better than the park. Bowie is the man. Even now, everyone still crowds round to hear what he’s up to. He didn’t do one interview for that last record, anywhere in the world and he was on every magazine cover. Lucky fucker. Don’t trust anyone that doesn’t like any Bowie songs.
