I was obviously being facetious when I asked one or two anonymous posters to list their taste. They didn't explain their attacks on "Quarry" whatsoever and I didn't know where they were coming from. I just find it hard to get a feel for all these anonymous people. Some other poster spazzed out for whatever reason. Hey anything to keep the place entertaining I guess. = )
Anyway, Chill listed some CDs she bought in the thread down below.
> Adam Ant "Antics In The Forbidden Zone"
Is the Adam Ant album that Boz produced any good? I have nothing by Adam Ant.
> Pixies "Surfer Rosa"
> Frank Black "Frank Black"
Coolio. I have everything by Frankus Blackus Maximus. I recommend the Frank Black album "Teenager of the Year" and the Frank Black and the Catholics album "Pistolero", and the "Dog Gone" CD single (great covers on b-side) if you don't have those. "Teenager of the Year" is a perfect album for summertime. = )
> Jesus And Mary Chain "21 Singles"
I have everything by them too. I only like about half the songs on most of their albums, but the ones I like I like very much. Even though William Reid is a moron.
Soon I'll have a link to my full music collection if anyone's interested in "going through my drawers". Misguided purchases, guilty pleasures, and all.
I can't remember my last 20 purchases, but the last two CDs I bought were classical. One was Arvo Part: Tabula Rasa / Fratres / Symphony No. 3, featuring some American violinist and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Which only goes to show I am in full-on Morrissey mode, as Part's Tabula Rasa is featured in his Meltdown festival. There's another CD that has a better interpretation of Tabula Rasa (the first one that comes up on Amazon), but this one's wonderful too.
The other CD was Ravel's Bolero performed by the Cleveland Orchestra, which I once had before and accidentally lost somewhere in Chicago.....
Oh, and before that I got "The Question" by the Slackers, one of my current favorite bands.
The next CD I will buy is the new "Dino: The Essential Dean Martin", because my mom and I used to enjoy "That's Amore" when I was little.
Then, the week after next, PJ Harvey's album comes out, and I must get aquainted in prep for Mozzapalooza. = )
