- 21+ ALEX CLARE You can learn a lot about someone by asking them what they think the greatest record ever made is. Take Alex Clare. Tell him youre going round to his flat tonight with the express intention of smashing every piece of recorded music he owns leaving him only one and the ideas just come tumbling out. Wow! he laughs. If it was production wise Id probably go for Radioheads OK Computer. Its an incredible record kind of mind-blowing really. But its not the greatest record ever made Alex stirs his coffee and thinks. The first record I ever fell in love with was The Score by The Fugees, but thats not the greatest record ever made either. I used to think it was The White Album but its not that I suppose it might be Donny Hathaways second album, the one with Magnificent Sanctuary Band on? But I think, really, its Stevie Wonders Songs In The Key Of Life. That track Have A Talk With God has the most incredible synth parts youve ever heard. Thats the greatest record ever made for me. He sits back pleasurably exhausted. You cant touch Stevie, he says. Even his bad ones are amazing! Alex Clare is just the sort of musician youre glad is still being made in the countrys basements, backrooms and bedrooms. Born and bred in South East London and raised on his dads bebop records, as a child Alex toyed with the trumpet before taking up the drums to help him get rid of all his nervous energy.
