your favourite records/bands

Postby chopsocky » Fri Jul 30, 2010 9:25 pm

i was just reading through the old music thread posted awhile back, we got a good mixture of tastes on the forum. So i thought we could have a thread to big up some of our favourite bands Lp's, ep's, singles ect.

I'm still a mad collector of vinyl and recently have been buying up most of the factory records catalouge, joy division, a certain ratio ect. The best and most under rated artists are in the form of 3 7" singles
The names- nightshift
Crawling chaos -sex machine /berlin
And stockholm monsters -fairytales.

Other labels are postcard with bands josef k , orange juice and aztect camera.
And much of the early rough trade records from 1978-1983.
I'm also really into the likes of throbbing gristle and psychic tv at the moment though its all pretty harsh stuff???
What sorts of tracks are everyone into then. I'd be interested in whst albums are your favourites because i'm always looking for new music and the above groups are just ones who's records i've been collecting recently.

I'm not really a fan of any of the new stuff. My music tastes are stuck firmly in the late 60's to early 80's era. One of the biggest drawbacks of moving abroad was that I couldn't take my vinyl with me, so I've got about 2500 records back in the UK with no current access to them. Nice to hear people are still buying vinyl though :)

I've always been a David Bowie fan myself. The guy has made so much great music, and has influenced other bands and artists for decades. Also have to mention Neil Young, one of the greatest songwriters of the past 30 years; very underrated nowadays. Honourable mentions also to: Loudon Wainwright III (dad of Rufus & Martha), Jonathan Richman, Joy Division & the late legend Gram Parsons.

love bowie alo, low diamond dogs and heroes are all amazing records. His work with iggypop and lou reed are also amazing, though iggy definately has the best version of china girl, the idiot album is amazing.

Yeah, I've got a fair bit of time for The Cramps. I'm never one to favour image over the music but this is probably the only excpetion to that rule that I make...let's face it, The Cramps looked cool but their output wasn't particularly consistent during their later years. My favourite tracks both come off fo their Songs The Lord Taught Us LP - 'Sunglasses After Dark' & The Sonics cover 'Strychnine'. I'd love to see an live anthology DVD of theirs.

RIP Lux Interior!
