1) XTC
2) My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
3) Pizzicato Five - "Darlin' of Discotheque", ideally the really long version from "Big Hits & Jet Lags"

More later...

I second the XTC and Miles Davis.

Thirded.

Oh, and following up on what Stan said earlier, can this be a more general 'recommendations' thread as opposed to a purely 'Educate GregMcDuck' thread?

It's really hard to choose, and I also thought about recommending one of Eef's solo albums OR the live album, "Have a Good Night" (which if you haven't heard it, track it down (I'll gladly burn you a copy!) as it has the most beautiful version of "The Water Song" which makes me cry).  Ultimately I went with the one I first fell in love with.

How exactly will you listen to one "band" after you've listened to one album and one song? Is there a different way of listening to a band than through an album or a song? Are you just going to listen to them talk?

He could listen to an interview by Smite the Righteous. After several minutes of trying to decode the band members' idiocy, he'll go crazy and attempt to gnaw his own face off.

A good question.  Are you planning to pick an album or two?  A smattering of tracks from across the band's career?  A Greatest Hits album?

Also:

1) Adam & the Ants (not the Adam Ant solo stuff, though that's good too)
2) Ministry - The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste
3) Yes - "Starship Trooper"

I will now hold off on adding more suggestions until you've done week one.  Assuming you haven't already gotten bored of this project and abandoned it.

Yeah, I'm wondering this myself.  Greg's last post was this:

Like, none of you are doing this right.

*sigh* but thanks anyway.

You didn't truly give up that easy, did you Greg?  It's cool thread idea.

...

Yeah, i withdrew my suggestion until i see what the hell is actually going to happen here. Originally i thought we were supposed to narrow each suggestion down. Starting with a band, then one of their albums, and finally a specific song from that album. Like how Joss just posted a few messages back (Who is that anyway? TeamRAD?)

But everyone else went off in another direction, and i haven't seen Greg show up to straighten anything out. But i'm still curious to see how the next episode of Astro Boy, the next Oscar nominated film, the next List Of Crap, the first music suggestion turns out.
