Alphabet Bands/Artists



  • Right so away on a work conference and to pass the time while in seminars getting talked at, we're coming up with an A to Z of bands.

    Rules are one per letter, last name is where they are in the alphabet and you can never listen to any other music.

    It's proving bloody tough, I'm not even a quarter of the way through.

    Have at it!

    Faith No More would come in at letter M.

    I guess you're restricted to 26 bands?

    Sorry, I mean Stevie Wonder would be W. The bands are by their second name, others by their first, so Faith No More would be F, The White Stripes would be W.

    Edit, and it's the last bands/artists you ever get to listen to.



  • @MN5 you're as obsessed with time as my missus. It's 10pm in Orlando.



  • @antipodean yep. The toughest is making sure you have a good mix.

    I'm sorry for assuming you were blighty bound Mr Jetsetter.



  • @MN5 it's a tough life. Not on 6 figures though.

    Yep. They might not have done anything good in the last 20 years but Mothers Milk, BSSM and One Hot Minute are absolutely brilliant.

    I had absolutely no desire to see them when they were here earlier this year either having had a look at the set list but they'll always be sentimental favourites.

    I did a change and then change back and then change and change back and I'm still not settled on P

    I don't think I could handle not listening to P### for Pyros self titled album ever again but then Prince takes me back to Student days too!

    Prince is probably my most favourite artist ever so he's a shoe in for me personally. I love the Police too but they're no chance.



  • Just given myself a massive uppercut.......

    Iron Maiden absolutely PISS in ahead of ALL others. How in the actual fuck did I miss them first time round ?

    Even Iron Butterfly deserve a mention way above my initial choice who I think got picked cos I found a CD recently while cleaning out the car.

    Cult, The
    Deftones
