Today is 10th April, so here is my ninth post for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. This year I am sharing my musical tastes with you. I hope I can introduce you to some new bands/artistes, and if you'd like to comment perhaps you could introduce me to some of your favourite bands/artistes beginning with the appropriate letter of the day. For more music, please have a look at my last.fm profile.
Ian Brown started out as the lead singer of the band, The Stone Roses. I will admit that I wasn't a Stone Roses fan, and I'm still not. I know, I know, but I promise that I'm not a completely bad person. But there's just something about Ian's solo career that I love. His voice is the same, but the music is so much better. And even though he's now in his 50s, he still has that Mancunian brit-pop, indie boy swagger.
Honourable Mentions go to -
Idlewild - I saw these guys supporting Bluetones at my very first gig. I then saw them a few years later supporting R.E.M. They've got too many good songs so listen to them all if you have the chance. Wrap your ears around Roseability.
Imperial Leisure - I heard of these guys when I was driving home for work one night. I always have the radio on in the car but don't always pay attention to what's playing. But as soon as this song came on, I turned up the volume and danced all the way along the dual carriageway. Wrap your ears around In A Letter.
