Was listening to the Beastie Boys last night. Most of the time I just listen to the voices in my head!

Disclaimer: I personally never, ever, ever, ever listen to any sort of Exotica or "Tiki Music," unless I'm stuck at some tiki event...those albums just don't set the right "tone" for me.

With that said,

I pretty much listen to the same albums over and over and over when I carve.

Here's my work rotation:

Rolling Stones: Sticky fingers, Exile on Main St.
David Bowie: Live at the Tower in Philly, Pinups, Hunky Dory,Man who sold the world, Diamond Dogs
Talking heads: 77, More songs about buildings and food
Meat Puppets: I, II, Up on The Sun
Elvis Costello: This Year's Model, My Aim is True
U2: joshua Tree
Various: 20 Reggae Classics vol 1 and 4

Lot of albums, but I carve a lot and these choice albums seem to keep me in "the zone." On any average day of carving I'll listen to 5-6 of those beore I'm tired of music and work in silence.

Buzzy Out!

kudos to meat puppets & carving!! good combo
I actually DO listen to a lot of obscure HI garbage and some exotica whilst carving...
THE SOUNDS OF TIKI is real great for inspiration
today however...

Heptones In Love With You on UA..when reggae exploded in
the early 70s all labels had to junp on the bandwagon & these were some great comps

I don't have a rule against exotica. Sometimes it puts me in the right frame of mind, especially in February. (I don't get those kind of sunsets in PA Buzzy!) Tonight I had on Animals from Pink Floyd.

The majority of the time, I carve to old 50's blues, mainly Howlin Wolf.
But I do mix it up with Sabbath, Polka, and assorted styles between those two.

I usually like a lot of percussion while I carve so I like to listen to:

Chaino
Preston Epps
Jack Costanzo
Perez Prado
Augie Colon
Don Ralke
Rolley Polley

Great subject bb moondog. I NEVER carve without listening to something. Les Claypool, Dead Milkmen, Satans' Pilgrims, Nice Nice, Melvins, Mr. Bungle, Deadbolt, Sadies, Ween, BH Surfers, Murder by Death. Now you all know why my tikis look the way they do.

I grew up in heavily Polish area, and the music was everywhere as a kid.
This vid isn't "pure" polka, but the title fits here.

Rotondi was kind of a punk-polka band from LA in maybe 1990? They came to SD a lot.
The singer went on to be a character in The Sopranos.
And I do have a couple cassettes I recorded off the radio of Sunday Polka shows from Western Massachusetts public radio.

Speaking of Polka, one has to mention:

POLKACIDE: San Francisco's one and only hardcore polka band
