    Manic Street Preachers (It was so great to have a band come from Wales and be hated so much by so many for so long)

    Sisters of mercy - (for the Goth years!!)

    nine inch nails: my love introduced me to them and they mean so much to me!

    nirvana: the band i've always turned to in times of despeir, and have grown up with

    rammstein: i've had rammstein around me since their first album.

    fun lovin criminals: come find yourself was the first album i bought, i live for hughie's lyrics.

    jack off jill: nothing better than screeming girls for PMT

    the cure: again another band i've grown up with, and love so much.

    placebo: my best mate introduced me to placebo. we gave each of our group a placebo song which we think defines them.

    AFI: another band mr fairy intoduced me too.

    massive attack: i've grown up with them and saw them play at glastonbury. fantastic

    the smashing pumpkins: they and nirvana opened my mind and my eyes to the world. the melodies are just so soothing and lovely.

    ok, ones that were important at some point, and not necessarily my favourites now.

    REM. automatic for the people was the first tape i ever bought. aw. i still have it somewhere.

    green day - the dookie years. while i was trying to fashion myself as some kind of teenage rebel.

    radiohead - pablo honey/the bends/ok computer. cause we've all sung along to 'creep' and thought how faboulously it describes us. how sad.

    live - 1997. i remember it well. we played this all summer and tried to form a band.

    stone temple pilots - and then when we realised our band was shite, we listened to this.

    ani difranco - years have passed, and ani still has a song that describes your feelings better than you can in any situation.

    no use for a name - got me through college.

    me first and the gimmie gimmies - ditto

    massive attack - ah, the memories.

    sometimes you speak the truth so much that i think you secretly watch everyone when they're on their own.
    but yes it is sad to do, but we love it.

    i've just spent 3 years on a writing degree, where they taught us a lot about observation and representation.


    but sadly not how to spell 'fabulously'.

    Pearl Jam
    Alice In Chains
    A Perfect Circle
    Silverchair
    Metallica
    Incubus
