Re: Top 20 all time bands or artists

My word I didn't realise everyone was so grumpy here - is it the rain? Isn't disagreeing with my choices a good reason for submitting your own list? I guess the rules are there to be broken (I broke one by listing Jellyfish, Manning, Falkner as one - as that clearly involves at least 3 different son...

Top 20 all time bands or artists

Let's have your Top Twenty, in no particular order: Rules: 1 - The Beatles are obvious, they cannot be included. 2- Must have released at least 2 album’s-worth or material 3 - Must have been, in your opinion, either consistently brilliant, or at least not have suffered a dip in form from which they ...

Dan, I work for a youth charity in North London - I'm running a video project with the kids and we're making a film called Head Box. Is there any chance we could have use of any instrumental off cuts and unneeded tunes lying around on your harddrives please? You can see a trailer for the film here h...

t's all but impossible for new bands to to emerge and succeed these days because the music biz is only interested in safe bets and valueless cover versions.

We've been beefing up the old Cherry Echo a bit! Users (Artists and Cherry Pickers) can now add one another as friends, and there is also a messaging system. Also, you can search for Cherry Pickers (that's common or garden listeners to the un-Cherried of you) according to name OR musical taste. whic...

Now the Dream is Broken is a crazy but fantastic slice of electro pop. It starts of with kind of 'out of breath' vocals, quite calm and quiet with keyboards backing - then halfway through the synth drums kick in, the entire flow of the song changes, and the vocals become this crazy, high pitched shr...

Yup - great CD and great contribution to my CD collection. I agree it should have included Back on the Avenue, but hey, what are MP3 players for if not making your own playlists? Also - Dan - any chance we can hear the whole version of Blossom Buds? Sounds great from the clip... or does the track no...

When I was a teenager, my friend and I started a mission to collect all known consoles. With very limited resources we did admirably I think. We started at the bottom end (pong). Worked up through Spectrum, Atari 2600, Master System, NES etc. The highest we got was the 3DO - at the time, the best co...

Let it Be / Masterplan - can anyone do mashups?

I was listening to these 2 tracks (Beatles/Oasis) recently, and the line in Masterplan (Oasis' best song period imo) 'please brother let it be' rang bells in my head. I started singing the chorus to Let it Be (just Let it be let it be let it be over and over) over the top of the Masterplan chorus - ...

Check out this video! First time Dodgy have played together in a decade! If Math's concentration on his harmony parts on Staying out for the Summer doesn't bring a massive smile to your face - then you are dead inside.

Of all the reformations in the past couple of years, Ooberman's and this news are joint top for me! (Of course, Blur would be too, but they don't really count cos they've never officially split).

Guys, was wondering if you have any tips on where to get bulk, reasonably priced T Shirts printed with your own designs. Nice girls and boys ones. Any idea where bands get the from? I found some sites, but I have a feeling they're not the best deals out there... cheers
