Oops! That's my favorite hot dog. Picking a band is a lot tougher. I like to listen to Salamander Crossing a lot. I also like the Desert Rose Band; their greatest hits package is a marvel. I also like Little Village, but that's cheating because they're really four of my favorite individual musicians all playing together. I also like Best Kosher - oh no, that's hot dogs again. Sorry.

Yes, Desert Rose has both Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen, which brings me to another favorite - the Dillards. And this brings me to another favorite, long gone but not forgotten, Dillard and Clark. That is Doug Dillard and Gene Clark, which brings me back to the Byrds.

Back in college (the first time), there were three groups that were extremely influential - The Byrds, the Buffalo Springfield and Moby Grape. All heavy on harmony and major key guitar licks. I have always had a soft spot in my head for jangly guitar; the Beatles and the Hollies sere right at the top of that kind of music (along with the Byrds, again). It seems that you find the descendants of that kind of music in the country/country rock field these days. Desert Rose is just that kind of band.

Let me throw one more out there - The ArcAngels out of Austin, Texas. Stevie Ray's rhythm section and two great singer/guitarists. This is hard hitting stuff.

oh yeah, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

My current list of my favourite bands off all time, in random order: The Sugarcubes, GWAR, Bikini Kill, Szeki Kurva/The Fighting Cocks, Garmarna, Iron Maiden, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Motörhead, Death Piggy, Trip Shakespeare, Brave Combo, Hoven Droven, S.O.D., Dead Kennedys, JPP, Sleater-Kinney, Huun Huur Tu, old Megadeth, Triakel, Shonen Knife, Yat-Kha (especially the first one I bought, a REALLY strange self-titled cd with just Albert Kuvezin and Ivan Sokolovsky), Luna, and Whale. I guess.

Hiya,

Somebody was going to take me to the Cambs Folk Fest but I knew any sort of festival would be a problem, so never bothered making a habit of checking who was on.

Who should be on this year but Steeleye! My love for them knows no bounds; my love of any sort of fantasy, old fashioned language & the Latin fetish I seem to have stems from them; & my favourite legend would have to be the one of the Nokken/the Sirens.

Caught up via iPlayer; they played 'I Shall Wear Midnight' – will never forget hearing that for the 1st time. I cried so much my face was as red as my dress & all blotchy. Peter Knight was looking right at me as he changed I to [b]WE[/b]. Couldn't stay off the loo for about a week beforehand (I never can anyway but this was even worse) The woman who came w/ me to see Maddy Prior on her own was so bored she kept playing w/ her phone

As for the Quartet – originally went for Martin Simpson, he was good but MQ were as Steeleye-ish as could be, the women even sounded similar to Maddy, the sort of high, loud singing she does; I was disappointed when they left for Simpson to come on! Their version of 'Bright Morning Star' had me sobbing & shaking (had heard it by Steeleye 1st)

Now: Cupola are brilliant! I recommended them to my home town folk club after seeing them and getting their CD at a festival 2 or 3 yrs ago, but as often happens they ignored me (sulk) but now I see Cupola are linked with Lucy Ward, so local fc even less likely to afford them now..

Hiya,

I've dreamt of fav bands before; the members mostly pop up to give me advice, w/ them introducing themselves saying "I am ____/we are ____" & my shocked/pleased response being "are you really?! Are you sure?".For something that never actually happened they haven't ½ been vivid.

This topic got me thinking; I've always seen love for bands like being in a relationship. They cheer you up; they comfort you when it's needed; they keep you going. When/if you dump them for a few years can you still say they're favourites

Hiya,

I'd love another gig. Stables closest & best for me. Looking forward to cd too. How Terry Pratchett passed me by for so long I don't know. Steeleye have never led me wrong.

I think I get him more now cos my tastes have reverted & I recognise the words he uses, & the description of the Chalk was so similar to the way I grew up I had tears in my eyes. Seen quite a few Morris dancers too but didn't appreciate them cos I didn't really get what they were dancing for -- luckily I know quite a few fans so I'm covered for his books.

Thanks for that link, Jim. That was a hot band and it's good to see a clawhammer banjo out front. Cathy Fink is one of the best.

I dunno...I use to wear head bands many years ago....to help keep my hair from my eyes....I have this wrist band my daughter gave me one year for Father's Day....I don't wear it often because I'm afraid to lose it. I do like it though...

What Gillymor said. Would've loved to see that band in concert.

The Allman Brothers Band from 1969-71, when Duane Allman and Berry Oakley were still alive. I haven't been a fan of the band's later incarnations, though I do like The Derek Trucks Band.

The Red Clay Ramblers spend a lot of time on my turntable these days.
