Favourite band

Would typically start a topic off with my own personal favourite, but due to my last topic ive decided to be somewhat more cautious.
By the way is there any typically "squaddie" like types of music? Or are the variations in tastes of music the same as anywhere in civvy street?


It’s got to be the Pixies :D

How many bands can write cool songs about sexual deviancy :twisted:

Here’s one of my favourite songs

You just have to love these lyrics

I said, "I want to be a singer like Lou Reed."
"I like Lou Reed," she said, sticking her tongue in my ear.
"Let's go, let's sit, let's talk, politics goes so good with beer.
"And while we're at it, baby, why don't you tell me one of your
biggest fears?"
I said, "Losing my penis to a whore with disease."
"Just kidding," I said. "Losing my life to a whore with disease."
She said, "Excuse me, please?"
I said, "Losing my life to a horrible disease."
She said, "Please."
Well, I'm a humble guy with healthy desire
Well now that Elton John has been put down ill be happy to post my favourites.

The prodigy and Nirvana
Tricky one. My musical taste runs from Amadeus (Mozart) to Zappa (Frank) and includes everything noteworthy in between. But if I really had to choose a favourite, the Stones just about pip Velvet Underground to the post, closely followed by The Who with The Smiths nipping at their heels.
Yeh I know!, anyone fancy a Horlicks? :)
Secret Affair excellent 'MOD' band and still going, then Madness, saw them first live in Hannover with the Lambrettas, what a night that was, trying to get back to Wolfenbuttel after :D 8)
Captain Beefheart and 97% of anything played by John Peel 8)
Led Zeppelin.

This topic has been done before and I'll say again what I have said previously - The greatest band of all time is ‘The Wedding Present’. End of chat. No need for further contributions. This thread ends here.

My fave band is Pink Floyd by a country mile, but currently the only music I listen to is Captain Lockheed and The Starfighters by Bob Calvert (featuring Lemmy, Vivien Stanshall (sp) and numerous friends). Only about half the tracks are music - the other half are dialog (often funny) satiring the renascent Luftwaffe of the early 60s

Wierd album. The sounds range from pure hard rock maybe in the style of Motorhead (for obvious reasons) on Aerospaceage Inferno through the sax from Pink Floyd in the 70s, Iommi's guitar with the early Sabbath on certain tracks to Sweep (Sooty's pal) doing backing vocals on The Gremlin Part 2. You can hear Monty Python and Derek and Clive Live in there too.

Listening to the album, I have heard more snippets from the whole gamut of music than I could shake a stick at.
Agree with Bravo Bravo but throw in Led Zep, The Clash, The Pistols and The Jam for good measure and you have a good soundtrack for any war!

p.s. and wagner, scares the sh*t outta the slopes....the boys love it!
Pink floyd gives me the shit's. watched "the wall" as a kid of 9 and now tend to have a panic everytime i hear one of his songs.
Got to love "techo" As long as its fast, Damm fast.
