I love The Kinks equally as much as Joy Division.

Saw Death in June and Fire + Ice last Friday in London. Great show and it was packed! Some Marxist groups protested with smear leaflets about Doug's so-called 'Fascism'. The self-proclaimed 'anti-fascists' are the real enemies of free artistic expression!

My second favourite band is Radiohead, for personal reasons, although I believe that everything before OK Computer and everything after Kid A, with the exception of all but the first track of In Rainbows and a couple of tracks on Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief, is awful. 
After that, I don't have any defined order.

In some order:
- Banco de Gaia
- Cocteau Twins
- The Cure
- Joy Division & New Order (kind of the same band, kind of not)
- Elvis Presley
- The Field
- John Lennon
- Johnny Cash
- Leonard Cohen
- Moby
- The Orb
- Radiohead (from Ok Computer to Kid A)
- Underworld

And then some more. This would be my list for today.

1. Joy Division
2. The Velvet Underground

Then here's some more that really stand out for me (in no particular order of preference):
Lou Reed
Can
Kraftwerk
Lemon Demon
The Doors
The Beatles
John Cale
Daniel Johnston
Nico
Modest Mouse

My second favourite band would have to be the smiths, arctic monkeys or oasis.

 

Its hard to pin point a second best band because there are so many frigging good bands out there.

A couple of new wave type bands I have discovered recently are the Duel and Thee Spivs.

Both their new albums are very good.

It would probably be a toss up between Coil and Kraftwerk, with the latter probably edging it.

In this period my second fave band is Sol Invictus...maybe because I'm fed up with this squallid world of ours and Wakeford's pessimism and traditonalism fits my state of mind

I like 'Blood Against Gold' by Sol Invictus (European neo-folk versus International Bankers!). Also 'Only Echoes Remain' by Sonne Hagal. (Check  out their videos for free on the Youtube website).

Killing Joke were excellent at The Roundhouse, London a few weeks ago! They played 'Unspeakable' again and some great new songs from the new album 'MMXII' (released on 2nd April 2012), such as 'In Cythera'. See the video here:


'The Hive' rare unreleased KJ track (1982):


KJ will be touring the UK again in September with The Cult. Some sections of the press are still hostile to KJ, and well-known left-wing 'human rights activist' Peter Tatchell has jumped on the anti-Joke bandwagon:

The lyrics of Blood against gold are beautiful and somehow remind me of Ezra Pound, my fave poet and a great enemy of the international bankers system

here:

I see the torchlights
I hear voices echo from the past
I see black angels washed in silver rays
Embracing beauty and crushing slaves
Blood against gold

I see a spectre, I watch it grow
I see great armies lost in the snow
Their faces torn like a bloody veil
And history's winds blow betrayal
Blood against gold

Beneath where lovers walk the dead do sleep
They catch the tears that lovers weep
In this soulless age of broken dreams
But from the shadows, an accusing scream
Blood against gold...

Bowie or Neil Young

Bowie's Berlin period at the moment 'LOW' is a blinder

And what about Generation X guys? We all learned to hate the rockstar attitude of Billy Idol in his solo carrer, but before that with Tony James he released some great stuff...my fave is Kiss me deadly Lp an 1981 release with a nice mixture of pop, rockabilly, dub and dark atmospheres... Too bad they split up

always been a cash & cohen fan...but never knew that there was a combination of the two
caught in one person:townes van zandt....became a 'fan' overnight,yesterday actually after
seeing a theme night of loosers (???) on telly.it started with 'pentagram'(an undiscovered
stoner rock band of the seventies) & ended with t.v.z.,pure beauty!both worth watching & discovering (be here to love me & last days here).

British Sea Power - without a doubt the best British band of the last ten years, and easily the best live band I've ever seen.
