Is that Bill Hicks the comedian, Del? Arizona Bay and all that. If so, I'm a big fan of his, too - really wished I knew about him when he came over to the UK to do a few gigs - he did one in Shaftesbury, which is only about 20 miles from me. I would have loved to have seen him live. Do you subscribe to the conspiracy theory about his death being orchestrated? Got to admit pancreatic cancer in a 34 yr old is pretty damn rare, as well as being one of the most aggressive and painful cancers out there. If you were looking to punish somebody, that would be the ultimate disease to give them, if it were possible. But then it's just a ride anyway, right?

JonP - I thought I was the only person who had ever heard of Ivor Cutler. I started a thread about him here a few months ago and got no replies when I posted free download links to his works, including 'Gruts for tea' grin

Natalie - I've absolutely no idea what Chinese opera would sound like scratch Is it lots of mandolin type sounds?

Angela - I love a bit of punk now and then. I've got a few Prodigy singles, was heavily into The Jam at one point. PIL, John Lydon's solo singles, like Rise, etc. I like the energy and the manic quality of his voice. Same goes for Prodigy - Breathe, Firestarter, stuff like that.

Delph - wow - you really are multi talented. I wish I could do half of that afro Thanks to the classical tips - I'll see if I can find them.

Ah, Ivor Cutler. Did you see the documentary on him a while back, Looking for Truth With a Pin? I believe it's out on DVD now. My favourite of his is Life in a Scotch Sitting Room, Vol. 2, although that's almost knock-about comedy compared with his more outre stuff. Saw him live once, and he was every bit as good as you'd imagine.

Yes - that was the first time I had consciously heard of him, TBH. Unusual character, that's for sure. I downloaded a few mp3s of his recordings and played them to my kids - had all of us in stitches grin

I bet he was good live.

Derek:

Yeah, a lot of talent has come out of Texas (I guess since it's such a big state)!  Cheesy If I could move, though, it would be to Arizona. It's stunning out there! I don't know of any musicians from Arizona, though.

What a wonderfully eclectic selection of musical tastes in here! Love it. I'll be chasing up a lot of the names in this thread as I've never heard of most of them.

I listen to a wide variety of artists, too. Here's two of my more recent faves:


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/4KI78874qbU&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/4KI78874qbU&amp;rel=1</a>
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/SGTDRztaCCw&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/SGTDRztaCCw&amp;rel=1</a>

Hmmm ... looks like I'm having trouble loading my links.  pissed

Edit: You missed off &rel=1 from the end of the urls, Donna afro

One of my absolute favorite songs by one of the greatest Cantonese singers. Enjoy!

For the more eclectic tastes among you - have you listened to any music by Nat Baldwin? This is the only vid of 'Only In My Dreams' that I could find, so be prepared for the voice of advertising to interrupt the song at the end:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/VmvJoUkDuAU&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/VmvJoUkDuAU&amp;rel=1</a>

Give him time, he gets weirder -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/KIjzkIxxXK4&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/KIjzkIxxXK4&amp;rel=1</a>

I've got a few of his tracks and find them strangely soothing when I'm in the right mood. Hypnotic. When you're in the wrong mood, though, it could be the trigger you needed to send you off on the rampage with a shotgun grin

Natalie - that guy doesn't have a sense of rhythm if you watch his hand clapping at the beginning of his performance, but his singing's OK. Not the sort of thing I go for, but I don't dislike it either afro

Donna - I really like both of those. I'll see if I can get hold of a few of their songs.

This is one of the great things about the internet - people being able to share their tastes. It's what first got me online - Napster and then Audiogalaxy. That was great. There was a tiny programme (the satellite) you set running before logging into the site, and then any friends you had on there could send you mp3s they liked so that you could listen to them. Plus there was a big search engine where you could search for and download any songs any of the users had, and there were over 2 million users by the time the RIAA shut then down. It was excellent while it lasted, though smiley

The first Nat Baldwin piece wasn't too bad. But the second one ... I could only listen for 1:20! Too much dissonance for me, I'm afraid.

(thanks for fixing my links, Ed)

He's trying to get the audience to clap along with little success, it seems.. They prefer to spin plastic tubes in the air. It makes a weird noise that substitutes actual clapping  huh

Really? How annoying would that be if you wanted them to clap? grin

Donna - yep, he's an acquired taste. But some of his stuff I think is pretty good. That second one is nerve jarring, though, isn't it? grin

Here's a couple from a darn fine bunch of Canadians, Arcade Fire:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/rJDsm1Y4kUk&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/rJDsm1Y4kUk&amp;rel=1</a>

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/bFFpL6Jj5II&amp;rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/bFFpL6Jj5II&amp;rel=1</a>

Okay, Ed: I added '&rel=1' to the end of both URLs and they're not linking. I must be a complete technophobe!

Ah - I see where you're going wrong. You're copying the url from the address bar rather than the 'embed' link. If you look to the right of the video on youtube you'll see there's a bit that says 'embed' and there's a link in a box with it - copy that and paste it into your message, then cut it down to display just the first http link:

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="   |-- this bit -->http://www.youtube.com/v/rJDsm1Y4kUk&rel=1 <-- to here --|  "></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/rJDsm1Y4kUk&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

I've got the forum set to allow simple html in posts, but for some reason it won't allow this code, which is a shame as it would make life a lot easier. I'll see if there's anything else I can do about it.
