If these guys do their job I might have my eyes back in as soon as Monday.

What should I do with The Fall? I have Live at the Witch Trials and liked it but I took a look at their discography and when I saw that they're still going strong I didn't know where to go next.

You can't go wrong with the albums from the 80's, but I'd say Hex Enducation Hour would be the best place to start. Then get This Nation's Saving Grace .

Where do I start with... Afrobeat?

I got interested in it after hearing some Boredoms live concerts, if that's any help...

Boredoms, afrobeat = ???

+ really useful information

re: boredoms, yeah in recent live shows the syncopation of the drummers and the keyboards/singing of yoshimi were described to me by two japanese music freaks as 'like afrobeat', hence my fascination.

Thanks for the tips, got a hold of Nigeria 70 and it's exactly what I was looking for!

Where should I start with Talk Talk?

Spirit of Eden then Laughing Stock, then Colour of Spring (the others aren't so good, however Mark Hollis' solo album is excellent).

Cat Power?

The Greatest is her best, containing Chan's strongest vocal work combined with some great brass, however for her more 'indie' albums try You Are Free and Moon Pix.

Dear Catastrophe Waitress and The Life Pursuit, from what I've heard of them, are pretty good even if it does seem that Stuart Murdoch wants to jump from genre to genre, In a White Album kind of way, on each track.


Oh lord, get The Life Pursuit, it's an amazing album, and one of their most consistant. Other than that, what A12001 said is pretty much spot on. But yeah, TLP just might be the perfect starting point with B&S.

Can someone tell me where to start with Dead Can Dance?

I would like to check out:

Melt Banana
The Boredoms
Lightning Bolt
The Locust


And any other obnoxious noise.

Melt Banana - Try Bambi's Dillema
Lightning Bolt - Either Hypermagic Mountain or Wonderful Rainbow

aaaaaaand if you want obnoxious, noisy, Boredoms try Soul Discharge. Then get everything else they've ever done, including all the super roots albums and OOIOO's stuff and eYe's DJ work as their albums are rarely anything less than amazing.

edit: Obnoxious noise? Dude, try Merzbow.

Right, more help needed. Where do I start with Donovan (I really like the song 'Colours' but don't really know anything else except for Mellow Yellow) and The Fall?

I started with Hex Enduction Hour and that got me well and truly addicted. From there try their other 80's releases, then 90's and so on. Mark E. Smith's solo career is pretty difficult to like straight off the bat.

She has TWO motherfucking albums, and Paper Planes is on Kala. Is that really too loving hard to Google?

Dude, he also asked for other bands with a similar style. Jesus, it's only the internet: you don't need to answer his question.

Oh yeah, I completely forgot to mention Black Sabbath. Sabbath is by far one of my favorite bands of all time. The first five Sabbath albums get constant play time for me.

Thanks for the Kyuss recommendation, sounds interesting. I'll give it a shot.

Also try the Japanese band called Flower Travellin' Band. Especially their album Satori. Stoned, hard rock at it's very best.

So I got Bee Thousand by Guided By Voices and I love it. So where do I go from from here?

Give Alien Lanes a try, it's pretty similar in style and from there try Isolation Drills to sample their more polished later-days sound.

To the guy who wanted to know where to start with Elvis Costello, start with Last Year's Model.
