I was at a rave a few weeks ago where I suspect almost no-one was born when the Beatles broke up (let alone rose to fame). As the night was rising to a climax, the DJ broke things down for a few seconds then dropped the opening bars of Tomorrow Never Knows (off Revolver) into the mix. The crowd went bananas. The song not only seamlessly dropped into a fairly hard-core techno mix, but was one of the high points of the night.<br><br>Now, the Beatles were known in their time for turning their hand to whatever genre of music took their fancy and doing it better than the bands that specialized in it, but it never ceases to amaze me that they could record one of the gold-plate standards of techno almost 30 years before techno was 'invented'!<br><br>OK, so they were on all the right drugs at the time, but still...<br><br>:-)<br><br>deebee<br><br><br>
Acid Country? I've never heard of that - and I'm not sure I want to...<br><br>I went to a folk festival once and heard a band from Scotland that did a kind of beefed-up, psychedellic fiddle music which they called "Acid Croft". Great stuff.<br><br>deebee<br><br>
I have such a hard time with questions like this. I'd rather answer my own question: what's my favorite kind of music? That's easy:<br><br>jazz, blues, rock (up to a certain date, anyway), classical.<br><br> <br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

I didn't see Jethro Tull. I remember riding to 7th grade in 1971/72 school year with my older sisiter in her brand new Gremlin smoking (but not inhaling-couldn't) an illicit Virginia Slims cigerette. Aqualung was pretty new then and it rocked. It still does, I listen to the CD on my way to work frequently. Of course the lyrics were lost on me then, and the chicken fancier came to play, with his long black beard, and his sister's weird, drives a lorry but are quite remarkable to the more worldly person I've become. 'Course back then as I was hitting puberty I thought I was as worldly as I was going to be. hehe<br><br>Mark Cohn<br>Al Stewart<br>Nick Lowe<br>Concrete Blonde<br>Crash Test Dummies<br>Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks<br>Men At Work<br>Kansas<br>Foreigner<br>Big Country<br>Little River Band<br>Can't think of any more but I know there's lots more.
