Re: The Strangest of Your Collection

I think it was freedom fields.

I saw a documentary on him on Channel 5 and had to go buy the album. Its good enjoying his take on traditional folk elements, i love the first song and the song he talks about shooting his true love (cheerful stuff I know!) its just interesting. His sound is quite original, very refreshing might be loking up some more of his work. Is the song "curse You" on any albums he sang it for somebody else its not one he wrote.

Re: The Strangest of Your Collection

as a long-serving audio specialist for HMV i know a bit about most things (except bassline, garage and anything that sounds like synthesised ferrets bouncing on corrugated iron)

Re: The Strangest of Your Collection

the band in my collection that gets the most odd looks from my friends (except one who actually knows/knew the guitarist) is Focus and the track that causes the most sideways glances is Hocus Pocus

Sloweye, both of those are pretty normal bands. nothing odd about either of them

Re: The Strangest of Your Collection

I have a great live album by Focus, as well as a couple of others.

Meanwhile, I've just discovered Ergo Phizmiz

Gogol Bordello, a weird amalgam of people from all over the world making gypsy punk rock. Very cool.

I love that album but haven't heard it for years (a friend of mine had it on cassette and I think he lost it somewhere)

That aside, there are a few weird ones in our collection but alas, I'm not the owner, blokee is...

Alabama 3 (it's surprising how few people know of these)
Dinosaur Jr (over here in the UK especially, no-one seems to have heard of them)
Alabama 3 is probably my favourite band at the moment (we were lucky enough to play a charity gig in Chiswick a few years ago where Larry Love's Showband did an acoustic set and we got to hang out with them for a while before they went off to join the rest of A3 for a gig somewhere else in London. they're really friendly and down to earth)
