Probably not a good Idea for me to post many of my musical tastes here.

I have quite broad tastes but a lot of it is fairly heavy Goth, Metal, Industrial type stuff that is not really PG

I dont limit myself to a particular style, genre or even artist/band

I like what I like.

Just because I like one song by a particular band or artist doesnt mean I like all their stuff.

A selection of artists that I listen to is

Tangerine Dream
Slipknot
Marilyn Manson
Rob Zombie
Orgy
Tool
Opeth
Saint Saens
New Model Army
Skyclad
Front 242
U2
Simple Minds
TYpe O Negative
Rain Tree Crow
Porcupine Tree
Katatonia
Sisters of Mercy
The Cult
The Mission
The Fields of the Nephilim
Foo Fighters
Nirvarna
Howard Jones
Talk Talk
Thomas Dolby
Gary Numan
Ultravox
Peter Gabriel
Holst
Queen
Ian Dury
Metallica
Megadeth



and the list goes on

Of that list I've seen two of them live, heard two more, heard OF two more and the rest I've never heard of!

It's difficult to keep up with music when (a) you live in Japan and (b) you are married with two young kids.

Pistols and Ramones?! Did they do re-union tours or something? :shock:

I reeeeeaalllllyy want to see Radiohead, especially after watching their Grammy's performance, so I am 100% jealous now. :lol: Out of my list I have seen Biffy Clyro, Frank Turner, King of Leon, Scott Matthews and Supergrass. I need to go to more gigs. :roll:

One of the posters on the Cunning Artificer's site has a daughter who is the lead singer of a band called Sky Larkin. This band is really good. I just got their first album 'The Golden Spike'. :D

Here's one of the tracks: Molten.

It seems like years since I saw that Echobelly video before Pooh. Used to watch a lot of MTV at one time and pretty sure I saw it there. Great song. :)
