Desert Island Discs 

Desert Island Discs Which albums would you take to a desert island?

Joe Romeo is the singer/guitarist of Fake Swedish, a British Invasion-inflected '60s psych-garage band (think The Hollies and Pretty Things with Cream). 1 Neutral Milk Hotel--In The Aeroplane Over The Sea: "One of the most beautiful records I've ever heard. The lyrics are heartbreaking, the melodies mind-bending.:

2 Leonard Cohen--Songs Of Love & Hate: "I heard this when I was 16 and it ruined my life. A masterful blend of the delicate and violent, love and hate indeed."

3 Guided By Voices--Bee Thousand: "Every song could be a hit. I defy any breathing human being not to tap their foot to 'Echoes Myron.' "

4 Bob Dylan--Desire: "I hope some day someone makes an epic movie about this record. The stories are so intricate, I could listen every day for the rest of my life."

5 Love--Forever Changes: "This record is so cool I feel like I've snuck into a club I have no business being in when I hear it. The melodies are crazy and the orchestration perfect."

Fake Swedish plays Sleazefest early on Sunday at Local 506.
