After the list given by the norwegian newspaper of the biggets rock front figures, I thought that it would be fun to propose a list of my favourite artists, in solos or in bands.
I know that, by doing that, I seriously open a valve of sarcasms and criticisms but I must be masochist in a way so ... let's roll !!!!!!!!!!!my 29 favourites bands. If I have to make the list tomorrow, some would probably change though.
Radiohead: OK Computer is the perfect album. I've listened to that album at least 1000 times and I still like it.
REM: The perfect band. All the albums are good. Some are just excellent.
Massive Attack: The inventors of trip hop. perfect for the end of an evening
David Bowie: what can you say about him. Just the class. i had the chance to see him in concert in 2002, and I will remember that night for a long time
Damien Rice: just beautiful
EEls: My youth.
Interpol: The renew of indie rock
Smashing Pumpkins: indie rock at his best. Mellon Collie and the infinite sadness is such a great album. Also saw them in concert and it was just great.
Jeff Buckley: Bought his album more because it was cheap than a real envy and it was such a nice surprise. i still listen to it with real pleasure.
Queen: They made some bad songs in the 80's but so many good ones in the 70's.
Neil Young: the perfect career.
Arctic Monkeys: those kids rock !!!
Supergrass: super cool
Led Zeppelin: i don't care if they stole eveything v to da v.
Noir Desir: THE french rock band. With intelligent lyrics (some songs are in english, so you should try)
Air: Don't listen to journalists , french electro is Air not Daft Punk. The two bands are from my home city (Versailles)
Iron Maiden: Also my youth. but still a guilty pleasure. Will see them in concert next july.
Serge Gainsbourg: His 70's period is so great. That guy was a genious
Groove Armada: English electro.
The Beatles: because they invented everything
The Chemical Brothers: English electro too
Pink Floyd: Some concepts albums just perfects
Pulp: Jarvis Cocker is a fanatastic song writer
Arcade Fire: very energic band
The Strokes: they always play the same song, but I don't care I like it.
