It was hard for me to pick favourite bands as I like so many solo artists and that would have created a different list to this one! Also my tastes change quite often so this is my now-ish list and isn't actually in order of preference.
Apologies to any of my f'listers who may have seen some of these videos on my journal before!
1. Jennifer Rostock.
They are a German band that I was introduced to through someone on my f'list several months ago and loved the single Feuer. They haven't released much yet and haven't really released anything in the UK. I'd love to see them in concert and would like to get hold of a copy of their new album.
2. Duke Special
From Ireland, Their live performances have a theatrical style inspired by Vaudeville and music hall, and often incorporate 78s played on an old-fashioned gramophone, or sound effects from a transistor radio. (maybe a slight cheat as Duke special is supposed to just be Pete Wilson with various different other musicians, but he seems to be playing with the same ones more and more which makes them a band in my eyes!)
3. The Seekers
A 1960's group from Australia. My grandma bought me a Seekers album for my Christmas present when I was four years old and I loved that record so much! She asked me what record I wanted for my fifth birthday and I asked for another seekers one!
I now sing several of their songs at Karaoke and have won a few times with this one -
I'll never find another you
Sad maybe - but true!
The one band I wanted to but never got to see live.
Oh Bjorn! you used to make a fourteen year old girl very happy whenever you wore Lycra!
Does your mother know
Oh Freddie your Lycra outfits also used to make a 14 year old girl very happy!
We are the champions
I'm proud of my eclectic tastes!
