Soda shoppe stools? I'll take mine in faux leopard skin please.



Actually, the show's not all that bad... there's the occasional guy that'll refinish a 30s tea cart or something. As for the stools, I'll take mine in real Leppard - someone skin Joe Elliott, please.

*G* You'll notice my characterization of bands I hate (even distain) as being anyone who has worn makeup, spandex and had big hair all at the same time. The only exception to this rule is KISS, because - they're KISS.

My other rules of what I won't listen to:
- male vocalists who sing in a higher key than Debbie Gibson (Robert Plant)
- any band fronted by a bassist (save for the Police and Rush)
- any country album that doesn't include the word "shot", "convoy" or "whiskey" (Toby Keith still makes this list even with the word "whiskey" - he's not so much Honky-Tonk as Tonka trucks)
- Anyone with an irresponsibly difficult name to pronounce (ie: Yahweh Malmsteen, Nuno Butterball, Me'shell Neogeocello)
- the Fartz (yes, I realize they gave birth to Blaine Cook who would go on to front the Accused, but they also didn't drown Duff McKagen when they had the chance allowing him to go on to Guns & Roses)
- "punk" boy bands (AFI, Good Charlotte)
- guitar wanking
- piano wanking (Rick Wakeman - the antichrist plays a moog!)
- albums containing only "love songs" (tough catagory, because I have to overlook some Alice Cooper, Descendents and Pursuit of Happiness albums here)
- Anyone that has been touched by the pure evil that is Ronnie James Dio

(disclaimer - this has been a humourous look at bands and is not meant to be hurtful to anyone with tattoos of any of the above mentioned bands)

That's a wicked list Bren.
If we get the chance to actually gather for a speaker audition, what exactly do you think you might be playing for music pieces?

Better bring your own... not sure what your tastes are, I do have everything from Simon and Garfunkel to Ministry, but most of my collection is punk (interested in the message more than the medium).

Though my favorite speaker testing songs are Whatcha Need (Bootsauce) and Dead Souls (Nine Inch Nails) I've also got a few CBC reference CDs for things like tone and pink/white noise.

So no Primus Bren? And I do hope Jello Biafra's name isn't irresponsibly hard to pronounce...

[tears running down my face from laughter]

Thanks, Bren. You crack me up.

Shouldn't there also be some kind of limit on "best of" or retrospective albums? How about bands that issue "greatest hits" where they only had one hit altogether? How about sequel albums, "Return of the son of shut up 'n play yer guitar" notwithstanding. Any band with a "choreographer".

No Primus. Everytime I hear Les Claypool's bass sound I want to find him and crank his machine heads up about 3 octaves.
And nope, Jello's name is easy enough. Eric Boucher (real name) is probably even easier, though.

Well glad to hear that DK is acceptable. When you said you listened to punk for the message I figured they must be on your ok list.

Ah, yes... or worse, a band that has three commercial releases and then releases a two CD "Anthology".

Or bands that go the other way - like XTC, who release "best of..." albums that are mainly self-serving experimental b-sides.
