My tastes in music.

Let’s continue on a lighter note. Though I've had this blog for a year-andf-a-half I’ve never really described my taste in music before. I suppose it’s a little all over the place, some metal, alt-rock, 60’s, world, even a few classical CD’s. So I guess a good way to indicate my favourites would be to go through the collection and list the artists I have a number of CD’s of.

I own more than three CD’s of:

Dandy Warhols
Foo Fighters
Nine Inch Nails
Pink Floyd
System of a Down
Skunk Anansie / Skin

And I have two of the following but won’t rule out getting a third in the future (or when available)

Fall Out Boy
Green Day
Linkin Park
My Chemical Romance
Scissor Sisters
Veruca Salt

I also have two of the following but I doubt I’ll be getting a third one, for various reasons:

Black Sabbarh
Grapes of Wrath (anyone remember them?)
Sonic Youth
They Might be Giants

Make of these lists what you will. . .

Grapes of Wrath? Grindcore band from Vernon, right? Had a minor hit with "You die, I die, we all fall down"?

Nope. Kelowna band, mellow soft rock, had their heyday in Canada in the mid-80s with songs like "Backward Town" and "You may be Right".

Trivia: when they chose the band's name none of them had read "The Grapes of Wrath" nor seen the movie.

I was actually kidding. My friend Greg was a huge fan of their sound.
