Re: Favorite Bands?

I seem a similarity in a few of our favorite bands: Tom Waits and Joy Division.

For me: Godspeed You Black Emperor, King Crimson, A Perfect Circle, Thrice, Manchester Orchestra, Sparklehorse, Radiohead, The Be Good Tanya, Nine Inch Nails, Matryoshka (My Funeral Rehearsal), Mono, Eyedea.

There are others too, but I only like one or two songs from them.

"Tell me how you want to die, and I'll tell you who you are. In other words, how do you fill out an empty life? With women, books, or worldly ambitions? No matter what you do, the starting point is boredom, and the end self-destruction. The emblem of our fate: the sky teeming with worms. Baudelaire taught me that life is the ecstasy of worms in the sun, and happiness the dance of worms."
---Tears and Saints, E. M. Cioran

Re: Favorite Bands?

See? This is the problem when I make lists: I always forget someone or something; in this case: Godspeed You Black Emperor, Joy Division, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Sonic Youth, The Cure and The Velvet Underground. Oh, and Arcade Fire, Crystal Stilts, Current 93, Ivy, Saint Vincent and Warpaint.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Favorite Bands?

If I had to name my top ten bands at this point in time I would say (in no order):

Siouxsie & the Banshees, Current 93, Nine Inch Nails, Throbbing Gristle, Madonna, Whitehouse, Lady Gaga, Joy Division, Suzanne Vega, Dead Can Dance

(10 to 20 would probably be Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd, The Residents, Nico, The Velvet Underground, Suicide, Depeche Mode, Cut Hands, Ministry, Emerson, Lake & Palmer)

My top ten albums (again, in no order):

The Holy Bible (Manic Street Preachers)
The Marble Index (Nico)
Imperium (Current 93)
The Wall (Pink Floyd)
Third Reich & Roll (The Residents)
Daydream Nation (Sonic Youth)
Black Celebration (Depeche Mode)
Horse Rotorvator (Coil)
The Downward Spiral (Nine Inch Nails)
Asceticists 2006 (Whitehouse)

Re: Favorite Bands?

Add this women to my list: Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple, P.J. Harvey, Regina Spektor and Tori Amos; I am sure there are more, but these are the ones I remember right now. Oh, and Air, Death in Vegas, Zero 7 and New Order. And two including one of my favorites guitarists of all time, Kevin Shields: My Bloody Valentine and Le Volume Courbe.
