Daniel Miller, Mute boss, on his mix: "I always admire people who can give their top ten favourite albums, because I can never do that. I have two categories of albums, the ones that I bought and the ones that I paid for the making of, you have a very different relationship with those records. There’s no question that records that have been on Mute are some of my favourites, but it’s often years after they’ve been made that I can listen to them with any kind of objectivity. Every song has a back story when you’ve been working on it, whether it’s an argument about the high hat sound or whatever, and listening to those records takes a long time to put those arguments away. So I just picked an arbitrary mix, love them all, but I thought they were things that might make an interesting tape."
