    zircon-encrusted tweezers is mentioned in a song called Montana

    My favourite albums are almost all of them but
    1 Just another band from LA
    2 Chungas Revenge
    3 Hot rats
    4 Joes Garage
    5 Sheik Yerbouti

    I knew that - Montana is off the Overnite Sensation album - one of my favorites. "zircon-encrusted tweezers" is also mentione din Dynah Mo Hum.

    I also really like Zoot Allures.

    But you recognised it so you score points on the Zappa trivia test. *A $40 bill for you.

    Re: Idiosyncratic musical choices....

    OK I understand it was getting a bit too off-topic on that other thread but did the new thread have to be "idiosyncratic" :)

    It could have just been "CS Music discussion" or something like that so others can add to it without fear of being labeled. Its already too late for me :P

    Certainly have or heard all of them. The Mothers Live at the Fillmore East 1971 was the first album of Zappas Id heard - Mudshark! Flo and Eddie were the singers on that album (and in the Turtles.)

    How about Mott the Hoople, Santana, New York Dolls, Capt. Beefheart, The Stooges, *Velvet Underground, Television, Wishbone Ash or if you want to go obscure: Amon Duul, Groundhogs, Family, Curved Air... I could go on.

    Re: Idiosyncratic musical choices....

    Fillmore East yes I love it
    You should listen to Just Another Band from LA (side 1 Billy the mountain)
    Curved air = Francis Monkman (done some movie soundtracks)

    Some bands or artists I recall but cant fully remember until I look at the collection

    You

    I remember the album and the song but would have to listen to it again to recall hearing it.

    How about Its A Beautiful Day which was similar to Curved Air but more laid back.

    Also love all the mid - late 60s groups: Buffalo Springfield, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Country Joe & the Fish, Fleetwood mac (the Peter Green-led version). Then the are a few dotted here and there - I dont have the albums but featured in my adolescence - uni years: Foghat, Pavlovs Dog, Fischer Z, Budgie, ...

    Apart from the super bands and artists we all know eg Led Zepp,
    These were also great

    Steve Miller, Cat Stevens, Slade, Little River Band, T Rex,
    And we havent had many female artists represented
    where do we stop

    Newer bands I like are Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn

    Re: Idiosyncratic musical choices....

    Im familiar with most of whats been mentioned in this thread, and have got copies (LPs) of a fair few.

    Nowadays much of my listening is "Radio Paradise" who play much of this music--and are a free download through my ISP.

    Are there any other internet radio stations where the music is actually chosen and presented by a real person?

    Greg
