I have loved this band since the first sitting,listening to an entire album..stunned.
I have seen them a few times and my initial live exposure was SXSW..
As a young pimple faced punk the female vocals always draw me..Annie Lennox,Breeders,PJ Harvey..Pretenders,Cocteau Twins, Dead can Dance..and in a backwards rock way..I have always loved The Beautiful South and Housemartins female parts..
As music has really really expanded I can listen to female artists sing in French,different African dialects and Spanish and while not understanding much if anything I think I often get the message.
I didn't mean to leave out Nina Hagen or a couple of childhood favs by Motels and Romeo Void

A bit of slip back to who I don't listen to: I've never really liked Queen, but man everyone does now all of a sudden...the sheeple have gone mad! OK, who doesn't turn up the volume for "We Will Rock You", "We are the Champions", "Another One Bites the Dust" when they come on the radio, but I wouldn't own it.

(I might get some of those shorts! :)

I guess it should go in the movie thread, but who saw Bohemian Rhapsody?
Seeing as I'm totally behind the times and still only listen to the radio while driving to work I can totally say yes, virtually all of the local stations have started playing Queen's music again ever since the movie came out. (Thankfully the classical music station hasn't proferred their version of Bohemian Rhapsody... yet.) I'm just a bit too familiar with Queen's biggest hits, so I just usually change the station. And I haven't seen the movie because, according to some reviews, it really doesn't portray Freddie Mercury's sexuality honestly.

Nonetheless, don't get me wrong, I still like Queen and Mercury (he is possibly one of the best rock singers ever), but I can totally do without the current hype that had been stirred up by the movie.
 
Very sad. Apparently Keith was the one who pushed The Prodigy more in their current direction rather than pure EDM. Liam Howlett was always the mastermind, but Keith did have some creative input almost right from the start.

I also keep hearing that he was a totally different person to the onstage persona. A number of journalists have come out and said Keith was always surprising gentle, thoughtful and articulate.
 
Just to inject some banal reality into the music thread

A popular new feature he’s noticing is clients hoping to curate their own theme concerts featuring fleets of bands. Mr. Siegan says he put on one for a 1980s loving tech executive, featuring the B-52s, Devo, The Bangles, Tears for Fears and Flock of Seagulls.

I guess the music scene in SF was arguably dead by the late 90s at best

Currently listening to a lot of Mashrou' Leila. They are a Lebanese band from Beirut and are well worth checking out. The lyrics are in Arabic but translations and transliterations are easy to find. To give you a flavour of their music, check out these two songs from their concert in Baalbek:

Very nice. The singer looks like the Hemingway ideal. He could kick your ass while singing sweet nothings in your ear.

Having just seen them at the weekend, I reckon that's a very good description!
