About a week ago, a very astute poster asked the Mailing List what other music interests List members. I forgot to answer it, myself, but I liked the question, so I thought I would answer, then reiteratethe question:
1. An unlikely answer. Other than experimental music, I love 1960's and1970's British Invasion-Influenced pop music. About 14 years ago, it occurred to me that, in order to be a good noise mucisian, you had to be able to write tuneful songs, provide a beautiful and sturdy framework off of which you could wax loud and ugly. Toward that end, I began to liten to mid-period Beatles, early Bee Gees, Big Star, The Raspberries and the first Eric Carmen solo album, Badfinger, E.L.O., Emitt Rhodes, and the like. I work hard to be a good pop songwriter, so I have a beautiful sonic canvas to "mess-up."
2. To what other music do the rest of you listen?
