Neil Young
Melvins
Bob Dylan (mostly mid/late 60s era)
MC5
Iggy Pop/Stooges
PiL
Just about any Dub-Reggae artist
Scissor Sisters
Frank Zappa
Tom Petty (everything up to the late 80s)
Sonic Youth (not so much the stuff after "Goo")
Ramones
White Stripes
NY Dolls
The Hives
Captain Beefheart (early stuff mostly)
The Pretenders
David Bowie

And of course, the old stand-bys:
Hendrix
Beatles
Doors
Led Zeppelin
Stones
The Police

Also been getting a bit nostalgic for alot of misc. 80s stuff like The Smiths, and just really some songs that take me back to those days of yore:

Video Killed the Radio Star-Buggles
Ant Music-Adam Ant
Money-Flying Lizards
I Do the Rock-Tim Curry
Reap the Wild Wind-Ultravox
Planet Earth-Duran Duran
Heaven 17-Let Me Go
Psychedelic Furs-Love My Way (without a doubt, one of the best singles AND videos of the 80s. Great vibe, really weird. Still holds up today. Knocked me out when I heard it back in the day.)

(Also...a great 80s album...one of the best: "Pop" by Tones On Tail. It's definitely 80s, but still has great sustaining power even now. Those guys really dropped the ball when they became Love & Rockets.)

....and since it's Christmas time now:'Do They Know It's Christmas?'-Band Aid (heavy nostalgia on that one)

Heard The Police "Wrapped Around Your Finger" the other day and had a heavy dose of nostalgia. Came outta nowhere and just consumed my brain. what the hell??

Afro Celt Sound System
Agent Orange
Banco De Gaia

Gang Of Four
Gilbert and Lewis
Jon Hassell

Pretty much what everyone's already said and more. It's been said of my music collection "No matter what you like, there's something in there to piss you off!" From ABBA to Zappa, from Bach to the Buzzcocks. You like Exotica? I'll break out the Dead Kennedys & Lawnmower Deth. You like Punk & Speed Metal? I'll break out Stephen Bishop & Warren Zevon. You like Singer/Songwriters? I'll break out Space Explosion & Hawkwind. You like Prog? I'll break out Mississippi Fred McDowell & Tampa Red. You like Yodeling/Kazoo-playing Bluesmen? I'll break out Charles Ives, Charles Mingus, Charles Manson, etc.

My wife's come to dread turning on the car after I've been playing CDs. This past week I've been playing Dutch & Belgian popular music from the Early '50s, 24-7 Spyz, Rush, live Hawkwind from the Mid-'80s to the Early '90s, Daisycutter, Skin Yard, Bukka White, & the Ramones.

I can never resist a "what are you listening to" thread. Actually I don't listen to a whole lot of exotica. Here's what I've spun for the last week or so at work and on the road:

First 3 Sleater_Kinney disks (at maximum volume)
Pop Ambient 2004
Lost in Space - Aimee Mann
Journeys by DJ: Coldcut
Another Green World - Brian Eno
Genetically Modified - General Midi
Shenzhou - Biosphere
The Fountains of Paradise - Loop Guru
Prodigy - Experience
Boot the System - Coldcut
Hedphone Sex - Funki Porcini
The Room - Harold Budd
Stone Chilled Groove (compilation)
Led Zep - My own "Blues only" playlist. (I love how I can hear JB's squeaky drum hardware on "Since I've Been Loving You" when listening in headphones)
Joe Frank MP3s


BTW, Great list DHNYC!
