Diary of a Music Addict

[email protected]

All ya really need to know about me is that I am really, really, REALLY into music! I have an ever increasing collection of vinyl; mostly vintage stuff from the late 30's thru the mid 60's. Stuff like Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey, Billie Holiday, Al Jolson, Ella Fitzgerald, Les Paul&Mary Ford, Guy Lombardo, etc. etc. I also have a lot of Edith Piaf, Xavier Cugat, Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto, that sort of thing. I have a pristine collection of Motown on 45's as well as a growing collection of Punk, Indy and Hardcore (Agent Orange, DK, Sex Pistols, Ramones, the Clash, B52's,Wall of Voodoo, Bad Brains, Bikini Kill, Aus Rotten,Red Kross, Filth, Spore, DeadMilkmen, Husker Du,Pixies, Black Flag, Minutemen, Devo, erasergun, the Cramps, Kraftwerk, etc. etc.) I also have a lot of strange little oddities like Banjo Quartets, Bulgarian Folk Tunes, songs of the south african veld, Western TV themes, German drinking songs, all sorts of offbeat records. I listen to practically everything: "Alternative", bluegrass, Folk, Punk, Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Hardcore, Jazz, Techno, tribal, trance, Hip-Hop, Funk, Industrial, Delta Blues, Classical, Modern Rock, Dixieland, country, Emo, Swing, BigBand, etc. The only types of music that I have no patience for is Pop, top40's, modern R&B(DMX, Nelly), and hippie music. I fucking HATE hippie music!

p.s- and by the way.......If ya haven't already noticed, I'm completely obsessed with the godlike creature known to the world as Mike Patton!!!!!!!!
