Haha well I do actually like all those bands. Apart from insane clown posse who I’ve never heard of. I’ll give them a spin later :slight_smile:

I really really wouldn’t recommend it.

Now in my early 40s, my recollection is poor at best, but if I have to reduce each era to three, it probably looks a bit like:

11: R.E.M. / Mike Oldfield / Sonic Youth*

14: Radiohead / Smashing Pumpkins / David Bowie

17: Sparklehorse / Super Furry Animals / Mansun

20: Boards of Canada / Aphex Twin / Elliott Smith

23: Tom Waits / Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Sigur Rós

Some of these are basically constants; Bowie, Radiohead, BoC and Aphex Twin etc.

*an older kid brought a copy of Dirty into school and at 13 I was smitten.
