I listen to a lot of things, from Asha Bhosley to G. G. Allin.
Lately I've been listening to Sun Ra, Billy Joe Shaver, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, and of course Jandek.

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?
