One of the most important DIY albums of all time, the debut Saint Etienne long player Foxbase Alpha sees its 25th anniversary this year. Conceived at a time when indie rock and dance music converged and became something singular, take for example Andrew Weatherall’s thunderous mix of opening track ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’, Foxbase Alpha seems to still hold up. Avoiding the trap of time-worn trip-hop or sample laden acid house, it perfectly encapsulates the time period without sounding stale. Whether an old fan who remembers it first time round, or a newly initiated listener tracing the roots of the British left-field, this is for you.
