A to Z.

The folks at Postal Blowfish have lots of time on their hands, and this little time-waster is an alphabet of one's favorite musicians:

A   Aphex Twin
B   The Beatles
C   Current 93
D   Miles Davis
E   Eraserheads
F   Fushitsusha
G   Guided By Voices
H   PJ Harvey
I   Susie Ibarra
J   Rickie Lee Jones
K   Kronos Quartet
L   Luna
M   Merzbow
N   New Order
O   Oasis
P   The Police
Q   Queen, I guess
R   R.E.M.
S   Matthew Sweet
T   Talking Heads
U   U2
V   The Velvet Underground
W   Tom Waits
X   XTC
Y   Yo La Tengo
Z   John Zorn

Difficult letters:

C -- Coil? John Coltrane?

P -- arrgh, with Pavement and the Pixies...

S was difficult, having to choose between Frank Sinatra, Superchunk, Bruce Springsteen, and the Smiths.

And being forced to pick Tom Waits over Stevie Wonder -- not good.

(I bet I know what Barbara's A to Z will look like: A for A-ha, B for Bon Jovi, C for Culture Club, D for Duran Duran...) Ha!

How 'bout A for Animotion—my bro-in-law's band (my, what big hair you have!)...

Your *brother-in-law's band* -- omigod. Was it the guy who sang lead along with Cynthia Rhodes?

Can you tell him for me that I really really liked "Obsession?" =)

Yes, that's him! Isn't that hilarious? I'll pass along the message. I've always loved "Obsession," too—a real tragic 80s classic...
