    I was a huge Doors fan when I was a teenager. I know you read "No One Here Gets out Alive" a long time ago, but I was curious if you ever read "Wonderland Avenue" also by Danny Sugarman? It's a really good read about what happened after Jim Morrison's death.

    Ok, so you know Cocteau Twins, but have you heard of Chinese singer Faye Wong, who the Twins have worked with? Faye is quite often compared with Liz...I feel Liz's voice is superior,
    marvellous though Faye's is.
    Anyway, Faye has made loads of albums, and there's a lot of them worth hearing. Faye appeared on
    the Asian release of the Twins' Milk And Kisses album, on the track Serpentskirt. It's
    required listening!

    Nah, I didn't hate any of your choices. Just found some a little boring.
    I LOVE Gorillaz, mind. Even though I hate Damon Albarn's voice when it isn't treated (as in Blur).

    Feel Good Inc is great. I adore Gorliiaz' videos, too.

    Oh, actually I do hate The Streets. There you go.

    Ooh, I'd forgotten how fab Tricky's Black Steel was. Have you checked out Martina Topley-Bird's solo stuff? It isn't bad, but not for me.

    This is my favourite song by The Verve -

    The Stone Roses I've never been enamoured of. To my mind, The Chameleons are Manchester's finest. Sadly they never shifted the units they deserved to.

    Love 7 Nation Army, Rhino, I kinda have to laugh @ Kate. Wonder if her bones rattle when she wiggles?

    Nah, I'm kidding, she's gorgeous. I bet Pete Doherty kicks himself nightly.

    Um.......no. Will listen.

    I agree re Blur, apart from Out of Time, which I loved.

    I'm not a big fan of The Streets but I think the whole pill vibe and beat in that track is genius.....takes me back

    Tricky is a genius. Will check out her stuff.

    Ha.....weird - 'This is Music' is the most Rosesish Verve track IMO. I really wanted to go to Glastonbury this year to see them but despite several offers to pull me around in a rubber dinghy I think camping at Glasto is beyond my quad comfort level.

    I like The Chameleons but the Roses still rule I'm afraid.

    Ok. How cool is this? I went to a restaurant on Sunday and Peter Hook from New Order was three tables away!

    So I go to work today and tell that story to my friend James who's in a band and he says 'I can top that.....Johnny Marr stood at the front of my gig on Friday watching me play.........'

    Johnny Marr is pretty much Jim's biggest hero ever. For anyone not sure who he is...this is Johhny Marr on guitar:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2NrIALcNOw - yes, disgracefully, that Smiths track was used as the theme for Charmed. Bastards.

    I believe that would be Riders on the Storm. I also enjoyed Wilderness (The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison) and The American Night. Wonderland Avenue was a pretty gripping tale of heroin addiction. I also enjoyed Junkie by William S. Burroughs which is along those lines, but semi-fiction.

    Um, some of us want reports from you along the lines of "I thought X was shit, but Y was cool". Or is it just me?


    Anyway, I think it would be good to keep this thread for music recommendations for anyone. I always like reading about what music others listen to.

    @ Rhino - Stone Roses, Schmone Roses.
    ...That's pretty impressive, breathing the same air as Peter Hook. Well, I'm impressed, anyway.
    Johnny Marr's a good one. Isn't he playing with Mouse On Mars now? (I dunno what they sound like, though).

    I have been listening to a band called Drag the River lately. It is sort of a country/southern rock mix. Most of the band members are from punk bands.

    Here are youtube links to a couple of songs:
