List any bands you like...Don't be shy!
1. Morrissey/ the smiths (obviously)
2. Bauhaus/love and rockets/tones on tail
3. Franz Ferdinand
The rest is not in any particular order. I find that all the bands that come after my top three I get sick of for a few months and then come back to them later, so they always change in rank:
Soft cell, the doors, depeche mode, the cure, the arctic monkeys...
Soft Cell,The Associates
What is yours Davie?

Influenced by early Bowie.
