    My favourite band is, was and will always be Faith No More.
  • Mostly jazz and film music. I love the freedom of expression in jazz. Film music is pretty weird stuff when you take it out of it´s context and listen to it as abstract music.

    Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Django Reinhart, Bill Evans, Dave Brubeck and the list goes on and on and on..

    Film Music:
    Angelo Badalamenti, Danny Elfman, John Williams, Vangelis (Blade Runner OST only), Bernard Herrman, Ennio Morricone, Jerry Goldsmith, Carl Stalling
  • Lately I have been a fan of Robert Randolph and the Family Band.

    Dragon Force!!!
  • I listen to these guys (channeling David Brent and Bono is quite the feat). You need to wait past the introductions. It's worth it.
  • All over the map... but mostly,

    Jazz (John Zorn, Zappa, Charlie Hunter, The Ratpack, Goetz Alsmann, Cracow Klezmer Band etc.)

    Soundtracks (Morricone, Schifrin, Goldsmith, Komeda, Yann Tiersen etc.)

    Classical Music (Mozart, J. B. Lully, Bach, Frescobaldi, Grieg, Brahms etc.)

    Pop and Rock (David Sylvian, Faith No more, Estradasphere, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello, Les Claypool etc. )

    Electronic (Ryuichi Sakamoto, Messer fuer Frau Mueller, Felix Kubin, Aavikko, quantic Soul Orchestra, Air, Hector Zazou etc.)

    and the music, wich somebody may know from the movie "Black Cat, White Cat" also.. all that brass music from ex-Jugoslavia
  • I like the 'Red Hot Chili Peppers'. I think their new album is great!
  • Hm, at the moment I'm loving all sorts of music.
    Lately I've been spinning these albums on my iTunes:

    !!! (Chk Chk Chk) - Louden Up Now
    Psychadelic/punk/jazz/just weird shit - amazing :)

    John Coltrane - Giant Steps
    I've only really just got into jazz. I'm hooked though - I would love to hear any recommendations of more good jazz albums/artists?

    Beirut - Gulag Orkestar
    Extremely talented gypsy/folk music. Sounds wonderful.

    And for drinking/partying - Black Flag go down a treat!!!

    I just bought (gleefully I may add), Sarah McLachlan's new Christmas album - Wintersong. It has a cover of River (my favorite Joni Mitchell song) and a cover of Song For A Winter's Night (a terrific song by Gordon Lightfoot) and other Christmas songs*. I can think of no one better to cover River than Sarah. I know it's a bit early to be listening to Christmas music but I had to pop the CD in. :)

    *Track list:

    Happy X'mas (War is Over)
    What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
    I'll Be Home For Christmas
    O Little Town of Bethlehem
    The First Noel/Mary Mary
    Silent Night
    Song For A Winter's Night
    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    In The Bleak Mid-Winter
    Christmas Time Is Here (featuring Diana Krall)
