Losing his edge

Asked to name the first record he ever bought (as part of 6 Music's The First Time programme), you could have guessed that LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy would claim it was something seriously cool like David Bowie's 'Fame'. What you might not have imagined, however, is that he also picked up Gilbert O'Sullivan's 'Alone Again Naturally' at the same time.

Other guests to have tackled the question include Thom Yorke (Queen's greatest hits), Neneh Cherry (Donny Osmond), Graham Coxon (The Police) and Kim Gordon (who remembers the excitement of buying new Beatles singles as they were released).
