Meet a 10collectivist (and a Meanie) – Jordan Stanley
Spawned in sunny Queensland, Jordan – affectionately known to us as ‘Jaws’ migrated to the cooler waters of Melbourne in 1999. Joining 10collective in 2011, Jaws takes care of all things ‘office’ related, whether it be answering phones or attempting to make spreadsheets more visually appealing. When not in the office, Jaws plays guitar in the Meanies, and drums in the Onyas and the Casanovas. You’d be correct when guessing ‘Meat and Potatoes’ are his staple diet.
We challenged him to pick his favourite records to take to a Desert Island. Here’s what he came up with:
Iggy and the Stooges – Raw Power
Raw punk / rock ’n’ roll at it’s finest. Hit after hit, and drenched in attitude.
Key Song: Shake Appeal
Ramones – Anthology
Too many hits to pick just one record, so I’m cheating…hey, I’m on a desert island here!
Key Song: Rockaway Beach
Oblivians – Popular Favorites
After hearing the first couple of seconds of the opening track ‘Christina’, I was sold. Memphis punk/rock/soul genius.
Key Song: You Better Behave
Cosmic Psychos – Fifteen Years, A Million Beers
Another ‘anthology’! Arguably Australia’s greatest export. A marvelous recipe; three simple chords and three simple blokes. Great band, even greater live.
Key Song: Pub
Eddy Current Suppression Ring – Eddy Current Suppression Ring
Another amazing local band. They sound like… themselves. Genius stuff from Brendan, Danny, Brad and that other guy.
Key Song: Insufficient Funds
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion! – Orange
I don’t ever seem to get sick of this record, so it makes the list. I’m always amused and amazed when hearing this.
Key Song: Dang
Fugazi – Fugazi / Margin Walker
Man, how do they get those sounds/write those songs/play that well?! I quit.
Key Song: Waiting Room
Amy Winehouse – Back to Black
You kinda knew this would be a classic when you first heard it, right? Yep.
Key Song: Tears Dry On Their Own
