Just thought id finally introduce myself to you people of very fine taste! I was lovin' it finally getting onto this forum :P Where are you all from?

I'm Rich from Chester, UK. I joined this forum as I love to discuss music, film and art which I feel passionate about and believe to be special. All of PJ's output has simply been unique and about as satisfying as music gets for me nowadays: moody, sexy, atmospheric, dark, the purest white or just brute in your face rock. I love it. I also hope to find special tracks/bootlegs which I am yet to find through this forum. I spent ages getting the B-Sides and LOVE the dry demos I finally found. Made me think there are other treasures hiding out there.

I fill a lot of my time listening to music, especially new releases, but don't always get to really discuss the artists I love the most with my friends. I love Last FM - its all about discovering new artists. I love that! It seems I have quite a specific sound which hits the spot for me. I love trying to read 'in-between the lines' on tracks and like to believe musicians as also a kind of storyteller. Nick Cave springs to mind here first. If anyone fancies a gander, I've listed my favourite bands/artists below. This obviously changes frequently over time but I'm one of these people that likes lists: anyone seen High Fidelity? Like that :laugh:

Anyway (in no particular order of preference):

Radiohead,Sigur Ros,Bjork,The Cure,Tom Waits,Bob Dylan,Alice in chains,Belle and sebastian,Nine Inch Nails,Massive Attack,Manic Street Preachers, Jeff Buckley,Pearl Jam,Sonic Youth,Opeth,Joy division,Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, David Bowie,PJ Harvey / with John Parish
Neil Young,Rolling Stones,Smashing Pumpkins,Muse,Led Zeppelin,Mars Volta,Trail Of Dead,Tool,Aphex Twin,Jane's Addiction,Portishead
Cat Power,Nick Cave,Mark Lanegan,Noir Desir

My current 5 most played PJ songs are:Joe (all versions I have), The Devil, 66 Promises, Angelene and A Perfect Day Elise
White Chalk is my favourite album at the moment though.

I also love the rip of 'The Last Living Rose' I found. Very excited about the next record.

Anyway, I intended this to be short but its turned into a laboured monologue. Sorry bout that.

Have nice Fridays in the snow (if in UK) listening to White Chalk. I did that today. Worked well! :shades:

Hey Rich, thank you for joining us and glad to learn a little about you. I'm Carol from Brazil and I love making lists too, but I like to restrict them to a pre-established number so I can torture myself into leaving stuff out. :D

Ha! Hey everyone :) I love it when everyone is all over the place. @Carlo: My mate is currently in São Paulo (where he was born actually) doing an accounting internship. I think I may be going out to see him soon. Never been to Brazil. I love the idea of the massive street partys :P

Nice Sundays one and all

The walk pics look great.

Its all sort of turning to ice around me now. Its annoying me how its the main topic on all the news channels though. Makes the UK look a tad bit silly I think. Ah well.

i know, pathetic.

we have floods (puddles), hurricanes (strong breeze), drought (no rain for a week), heat waves (32o +), major snow disruption (more than 2") & don't even mention the leaves on the train lines bring us to a halt!!! :???:
but it's still a great place to live though :wink:
