It's going to cost me a fortune

Working here is introducing me to loads of new bands, some of whom are great. Muse, Absolution - fantastic.

Where the hell have you been man? You spend too much time blogging and not enough time listening to the radio.

I listen to the radio a lot. But, then, you don't pick up on too many groovy new bands on Radio 4[1].

Having said that, I was introduced to both Nick Drake[2] and Gomez[3] by Radio 4 programmes.

Muse are excellent live...

If you like Nick Drake, then Jeff Buckley (son of Tim) is a must - get Grace (for a fiver from shops like fopp). Also Damien Rice. Gomez are equally good live (touring at the moment I think) - if you want something similar then look to any of the early stuff by the little feat (the later stuff after lowell george died went a bit 'Jazz Fusion', which isn't to say its bad, just to say its not delta blues).

Oh, the best website for music has to be - each artist cross referenced with influences, similar, followers, musical styles etc. with full discography.

Double plus good for Grace, fantastic album - you can't beat the Benjamin Britten written Corpus Christi Carol for my money.

Of course, you can't go past Francis Dunnery [ ] Listen to his last album, Man, and you *will* love it.

Then I start talking about the music of Squeeze, Steely Dan, Lloyd Cole and I start to get carried away ...

Little Feat, Steely Dan - wonderful, I agree. Bring Nick Drake and anything elsoe you think I'd like next week and educate me.
