Maybe: - Bach
- Beethoven
- Stravinsky
- Bartok
- Charles Ives...

Great band.

I think I like the live recordings best.

e.g.
YouTube - throbbing gristle - discipline (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8klW9trVTQ)

The Twin Peaks soundtrack is brilliant. And it isn't really deviating that much, there is a film score as well. In fact most of Lynch's films have great scores (courtesy of Angelo Badalamenti). Other...

I don't know how many people around here are aware of either Nurse With Wound or the infamous list of 'outsider music' that accompanied their (brilliant) debut record 'Chance Meeting on a Dissecting...

Brilliant.



Another John Fahey fan! Great! I was hesitant in mentioning him since he's not really a 'rock' guitarist as such but it's always nice to speak to another fan.

I'm sorry but I have to say it... what a boring, conservative list. Fred Frith and Snakefinger behind Yngwie Malmsteen!? You must be insane! And since when was popularity a criteria for greatness?

A great singer indeed. Not only did he have an incredible range but he really knew how to use it! Listen to 'Starsailor' and 'Lorca' in particular for evidence of this.
