Music is an important part of my life. I’ve nearly always got something playing, and I’m always on the lookout for new music. Everything is fair game, although I’m not much for country, opera or hard rock. Favorites include Laurie Anderson, Adrian Belew, Bjork, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, John Hiatt and King Crimson. Bob Marley was a god. Ani DiFranco is a goddess.
My latest music fascination seems to be 50’s styled rock-and-roll, especially the Duane Eddy/Dick Dale surf-rock sound. The Ventures and Los Straitjackets are at the top of that list for me right now.
I also have a penchant for swing covering the full range from classics like Goodman and Miller to newer bands such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Brian Setzer. Jangly guitar pop such as Jellyfish or The Replacements will almost always make me happy.
I have a short recommendation list on my database site. Five artists, one title each.
