Fantastic. He’s a big, red-haired Viking type of guy, and he was never scared to experiment. I think he took his lead from us. He did some amazing work. Reynolds, Simon (2 April 2009).

Thanks for The Associates promotion effort, posted most years ago, mainly 320 vinyl rips and it's great to see them getting remastered and made available here. That said, i felt the Sulk remaster i found elsewhere sounded really awful, maybe I will try yours, its always possible some sexually frustrated git felt the need to express his emotions by raping good music, its not that hard come to think of it.If you are a dyed in the wool Associates fan or you’ve never dipped your toe in the water before, buy this album. I’d hate to think there are people on this planet who have never experienced Sulk. They don’t know quite what they are missing. Michael was a very distinctive bass player and the way Bill and I telepathically worked, bouncing off each other, he was very good at just slotting in the middle without interrupting. Murphy was Australian and quite a character. In all the time that we played live together, he never bought a drink and if you went to a party with him, he would start rummaging through the bins looking for something to eat. When we were rehearsing, he would have the NME spread out on his floor tom and he’d be reading it as we were playing. Armond White (22 February 2016).

I’ve often struggled with the oft asked question about naming your top 10 albums of all time, as this can change by the day depending on my mood. However, on listening to this extraordinarily unique and arresting album time and again over the last few weeks, I decided that not only should this album always be in that top ten, but in fact, if I was to choose only one album that I had to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be hard to see past Sulk. His sons Callum and Hamish Rankine announced the 64-year-old’s death on Tuesday January 3. “He died peacefully at home shortly after spending Christmas with his family,” the family’s statement read. “He was a beautiful, kind and loving man who we will miss dearly.” Upon news of Rankine’s passing, Ladytron wrote on social media, "No Associates = No Ladytron" while saying that he was the "creator of amongst the most joyous magnificent pop music of all time."

DEMPSEY: I never saw Bill and Alan disagree about doing anything. They had an instinctive understanding. Billy would hum whatever he wanted, and within a couple of seconds, Alan would be barking out the chords. The US tour had been set up but then Bill announced that he didn’t want to do it and derailed everything. He said, “Man, this whole touring thing, I just don’t like it… but we could just be a studio band.” I said, “No, Bill, you’re perfectly capable of singing live and people come to see us primarily because of you so we can’t be a studio band.” He just couldn’t Twanging bass has you tapping your foot from the off on the addictively alluring Skipping, a song which just increases in intensity the more you listen, with Billy releasing the true depths of his warm brogue.
