Other Genres

Nothin' to do with blues? The name says it all. You might try e-mail or Personal Message, but if those don't work for you, put it here, not in the blues forums above. Thanks!

Other Genres

What other genres and or new artists have you guys been listening to? When I'm feeling something other than blues I usually go
for rock (new or classic). Recently I've been getting really into 16 Second Stare, their song Red Carpet Material has become definite favorite of mine. I recently saw this pretty cool interview of them backstage at one of their shows. I'm hoping they tour again soon, check out the interview here:

What do you think?

I listen to a bit of everything and steal from everyone. Lately it's been...
Asylum Street Spankers
Chris Cornell
Ojay's
Disturbed
Texas Tornados
James Brown
Be Bop Deluxe
Ohio Players


I'm befuddled trying to figure out how to convert Ohio Players - "Skintight"...into a shuffle.

Cheers, TB.

Well, I got a Stanley Brothers box set a couple of days ago... but then the CD player in my car broke! So from the radio, I've been really loving that Taylor Swift song "Picture to Burn," and Temple of the Dog's "Hunger Strike." Jeez, those are good.

I like (as Beavis and Butthead would say) music that doesn't suck.

Dust your broom Maxx. My mother reads this forum, she now wants to fly to England and spank your bottom.

If it ain't the Blues, I listen and play Jazz. To all of you single men out there, playing Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" and anything by Chet Baker during an attempted romantic interlude is guaranteed pantie dropping music. :mrgreen:

I'll listen to anything, including classical and jazz, but I've really developed an aversion to some of the most formulaic country out there; you know the kind... where they take a tricky phrase like "Save a horse, ride a cowboy" and build an entire tune out of it (actually, that tune is one of the few of that formula that I liked,lol!). I like classic punk (Clash,Sex Pistols, Ramones,etc.), old blues/rock (foghat etc.), and I love classic funk and psychedelic funk. Good old primitive delta blues is probably at the top of my listening list, but I'd rather play dance blues with guitar,organ,harp, bass, and drums.

All kinds of music.

lately, loads of old funk.

and always slabs of reggae - I cover a lot of Jimmy Cliff and I pretty much worship Lee "Scratch" Perry, I dig Yellowman and Horace Andy, Steel Pulse, Toots, man there's just tons of that stuff that I love.


But I listen to Sinatra - especially the albums he made with Count Basie, the Riddle Orchestra seems to hide Franks talent behind schmaltz. And Miles. And the Fun Lovin' Criminals.

I like some classic rock, but theres not much of it that I really love. But classic Country spins my wheels, and I love that Bakersfield sound.

Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Louis Armstrong...

I periodically binge on Robert Fripp's music, especially anything he did with Brian Eno.

And Folk Music - I'm particularly enjoying my copy of the Harry Smith anthology - I'd say it's a must have. Still listening to Taraf Haidouks, the eastern European Gypsy village band. and...we could be here all day.

Worst, possibly, is that the longer I play music, the more strong my Audio imagination becomes. I can hear music in my head so clearly sometimes that it worries me a little (although I have read that this just plain happens - use a part of the brain, it develops - go figure)

But mostly, I listen to blues.
