    The Who, few other bits of 70s rock. Was 13 in 1978 so sort of jumped straight in to music with punk and new wave and anything unrelated that came before was ignored. Always dabbled a bit in classical but getting more into it now. Still don’t really get Pink Floyd or Led Zep though.

    Hmmm. Tight vocal harmonies, ambient and drone, dance music and of course, QOTSA.

    I also used to hate goldfrapp (the Loon’s favourite band at one point). Turns out I’ve a couple of their CDs now too. And they get a spin every now and again too…

    Got tickets to see them in a small venue in Bristol on Sunday, as a warm-up to their Somerset House and festival gigs.
    Can’t wait!

    MLC, just think of Zeppelin as a loud folk band, particularly Zep III.

    as a teenager remember seeing Marc Bolan on Top of the Pops and I just didn’t get it – no huge fan now but I can see how far ahead of the pack he was back then when I hear a tune on the wireless

    I added folky music to my listening from around age thirty. I still dislike soul and disco. But electronica and house beats are ok.

    like others – music that my dad liked. – i.e. Dire Straits!! 😯
    I wouldn’t have said that 20 years ago!
    I never really got the Psychedelic Furs at the time but they have some awesome records/tunes.

    Martin Carthy.

    My younger, hipper self is shuddering as I write.

    But it turns out that dude plays suh-weet folk guitar and the old British folk numbers are actually pretty damn good.

    Being 15 and into crass

    wasn’t Penny Rimbaud an old hippy?

    Lots of classical stuff my Dad listened to, in fact I’m mainly on Classic FM in the car.
    Still love lots of stuff I was into in the 70’s & 80’s though.

    Dance and DJ’s mixing became of interest about 5 years ago.

    Martin’s practically as old as British folk! Along with his wife Norma Waterson , and his daughter Eliza, the family are an institution. He’s 72, and still gigging, BTW.
    You ought to check out Eliza’s stuff, she was mixing folk with dance beats years ago, Red Rice, released in 1998.
