Title: Favourite bands besides The Cure
Post by: rdruiz8 on July 18, 2005, 21:59:26
HI!

I have a question for all of you: what other bands do you like besides The Cure?
I've noticed that a lot of The Cure fans also listen to Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Siouxie and other related bands.

I'm a little unconventional in that aspect. I listen progresive rock and heavy metal. I like bands like: Pink Floyd, Rush, Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and Pearl Jam. 8)

Hi.
My other favourite band is definetly MUSE. They are so amazing!!! It's unbelievable what these three guys doing on stage. They have so much power and wonderful songs. I love them.

Another Band is a german one called "die ?rzte", but I'm in doubt that someone of you know them. Anyway, this is a very funny band and very succesful here in Germany. Try to check it out - you wont regret.  :D

My favourite female singer is Mylene Farmer. She is a great star in France and does wonderful songs (popsongs and ballads) and fantastic live shows.

I'm a bass-player and so I have an Idol: This is Billy Sheehan. Does someone know him?

Cheers, Tr#  :D

Hey Tristan!

Of course I know Billy Sheehan, the great bass player of Mr. Big. I heard one fabulous track in one of the CDs of the "Guitar for practicing musicians" magazine. His bass solo rocks!! 8)
Don't know if you've heard the track, but if you don't, I can gladly share it with you.
Speaking of bass players, do you like Primus? Their music is very unconventional but Les Claypool is another great bass player.

By the way, do you know where in the web can I find some audio files of die ?rzte. I'm interested in listen to their music

Tocotronic, Wir sind helden, MIA... are some german bands that i have discovered this year and that I really like but for me THE german song is Eisbear from the band Grauzone whose one of the member of this band (Stephan Eicher) is still famous in France and i love him...  :D  :D

Otherwise besides The Cure i would say Radiohead, Joy Division, Interpol, Depeche Mode, U2, Kent (from Sweden), Mogwai and Air (Run, run, run, run, run... this music is awsome!)

And if you want discover some french bands or artists, I like Noir Desir, Miossec, Yann Tiersen, Dominique A, Daran et Bashung.  :!:  :!:  :!:

Yes, I know who he is. He has played with Paul Gilbert and Mr. Big. He is one crazy player. I have seen some of the solos he does on stage!   :shock:

I too think I am unconventional in my musical tastes. I'm really not that into dark music, but something about The Cure really strikes a chord in me. I love ALL their music! I have also just recently gotten very into Siouxsie. You really need to hear all of their music before you form an opinion about them!

Other bands I like include The Beatles, Nirvana, U2, Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, and all kinds of '80s and early '90s rock and pop stuff. I also like heavy metal, yet I seem to have grown a bit out of it. I'm only 25, but I think I mellowing out already!  :)

I really like Pearl Jam's older stuff and so much else. I've already mentioned on here that I also like other styles of music like classical, ambient, and trance. But one thing I cannot stand is country music... Eeeek!  :twisted:

Looking back on that, I think I like a lot of the same stuff Robert does, maybe with the exception of hard rock/metal type stuff...

For years I'd listen to nothing but The Cure, but since Curiosa last year...I have really been into Interpol.  Can't wait to see them next month!  I also just got the new NIN cd today - With Teeth.  It's pretty good.  I love track 8- 'Only'....and Trent's voice is always fabulous!  I also like Cold and Godsmack.  Nothing, except Interpol, has ever made me feel the way Cure music does!  It's indescribable.   If I really dig deep into my past, it includes Peter Frampton, J. Geils Band, Gary Wright, The Temptations, Bob Seger, Todd Rundgren and Cat Stevens.

Alright Roan!  Good punk choices.  I listen to alot of stuff.....for instance, on my iPod I have everything from the Cure, the Smiths, and Siouxsie to old Metallica, Halford, and Megadeth to Hatebreed, Ensign, old Misfits, The Exploited.....the list goes on.

I have been into punk since I was 12 and was able to sneak to City Gardens in Trenton, NJ with some older friends to see bands like the Exploited, Uniform Choice, GBH, etc.  I also would go see bands like Judas Priest, Megadeth, Slayer, etc.  Of course I have been into the Cure since I was 12 as well (I have only missed 1 cure show in the Philadelphia/Camden NJ area....and that was in 85!).  I have seen U2 several times, Mary's Danish, CSN, Pavarotti.........talk about a broad spectrum!

Nirvana is the most overrated band of all time. Since when is whining and bitching constantly considered talent? Not even Elvis, The Beatles, The Stones, Zeppelin, all the greats whined and bitched constantly in their songs. Doing a ballad is one thing, but when you constantly whine and **** in ALL of your songs, that's not talent. And I don't understand what the deal is with NIN and Trent either. Plus their music sounds really satanic/evil/hectic/whatever, and I heard they had a song called "My Gun Wants To **** You", but I don't know the facts. And Trent also discovered that no-talent freak "Marilyn Manson". Anyway, some of my favorite bands besides The Cure are:

There is a Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits compilation that gives you a good taste of each album. It actually includes 4 songs that aren't available on official releases too. But if you want to go straight into an album, I'd say pick up Siamese Dream or MACHINA first, as they have some of the more accesible material. Of course, Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness is excellent as well.  :smth023

I've been listening to Silversun Pickups quite a bit as of late.  They remind me of Smashing Pumpkins (when they were still good).  Secret Machines, Rise Against, Brand New, and Trans Am have also been getting a lot of play on the mp3 player.   :smth020

Otherwise besides The Cure i would say Radiohead, Joy Division, Interpol, Depeche Mode, U2, Kent (from Sweden), Mogwai and Air (Run, run, run, run, run... this music is awsome!)

Oh my sweet jesus, Kent! First time I've heard someone who's not Swedish mention them, let alone list them as a favorite band! Needless to say, I love them too, probably my second favorite band. I like Mogway, Air, Radiohead, Joy Division, and Interpol as well, but I haven't heard enough of them to call them favorites.

Other favorites (no order, mind you): Smashing Pumpkins, Nick Cave, Pixies, Tom Waits, Placebo, Fiona Apple, Nick Drake, Depeche Mode, Coldplay, U2, Gotan Project, The Kinks, Simon & Garfunkel, Björk, The Cardigans, Alanis Morissette, Green Day (more of a high school favorite, but anyway), ...and so forth. Starting to get more and more into Morrissey as well, ye old Smith foe...

Hard to know when a band/artist you like turns into a favorite though...

off-topic but just want to add that i've been thoroughly pissed because EN is finally playing here this month, after all these years - of course i missed the start of the ticket sales and of course they sold out in a second and it looks like it's completely impossible to find a ticket on the black market either.
i can't believe i'm going to miss them out. :x

Most early punk & new wave bands but always open to hear new sounds.

Any new bands that you recommends to take a listen to? It´s nice to driving and hearing good tunes.

Now I listen a lot to Vaccines. Not alike The Cure but not bad at all. They have energy. Do you like them?

Hi.
I am new here.
As my first order of business, I shall try to highjack this entire thread.
 :roll:
Seriously.
I have compiled into an excel file all of the groups mentioned in this whole thread.
I can't promise it is perfect - you get what you pay for after all...
 popcorn
...but I do think this is pretty accurate... I tried to combine, for example, Smiths + The Smiths, etc.

So, time for results!!

829 groups have been mentioned so far.

613 have only been mentioned one time...

...and I shall now bore you tears by listing a selection of those 613... and the one thing they all have in common is that I really like them too... and, yes, The Cure is my all-time favorite group.
 :oops:

Air Formation
Airiel
Animal Collective
Bethany Curve
Big Star
Boo Radleys
Book Of Love
Boston
Brian Eno
Chapterhouse
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Deerhunter
Electric Light Orchestra
Franz Ferdinand
Galaxie 500
Kitchens Of Distinction
Luna
Orchestral Manoevres In The Dark
The Divine Comedy
The Flaming Lips
The Horrors
The National
VNV Nation

So, technically, all those now have 2 votes, but whatever, nobody is reading this anyways.

...by 24 hours I of course meant 48 hours  :?

Where were we? Ah, yes, Top 57 bands.

Coming in tied at 45th in our countdown, are bands that were listed 5 times...

Dead Can Dance
Fields Of The Nephilim
Jeff Buckley
Lush
Massive Attack
Nine Inch Nails
Pearl Jam
Sigur Ros
Talking Heads
The Psychedelic Furs
The Ramones
The Velvet Underground
White Stripes

Of those, my favorite by far is Sigur Ros, but also please note that Lush, Talking Heads and The Psychedelic Furs are also gems. I really need to check out Fields. Many of the others listed here (Buckley, Massive, NIN, PJ, Ramones, Stripes) are all "great music" that I frankly can't stand. :smth014 My taste is fairly narrow.  :smth018 Oh well. Nobody's perfect.  :smth035
Title: Re: Favourite bands besides The Cure
Post by: PetShopBoy on January 19, 2018, 02:42:09
Coming in tied at 37th in our countdown, are bands that were listed 6 times...

Clan Of Xymox
Death Cab For Cutie
Iron Maiden
Mazzy Star
PJ Harvey
Public Image Ltd.
Sonic Youth
The Who

What an intriguing mish-mash. I only remember one good album from Xymox, perhaps I am having a senior moment.

My only favorite here is Death Cab...
...though I actually do like quite a bit from Sonic Youth, so long as its not too funky or angry. :smth059
I really need to listen to PiL more and finally go back and deep dive The Who. :smth051

And in our final installment of tonight's incredibly epic installment of Made-Up-List-Countdown...

...we have the bands all tied at 32nd in our countdown, all of which were chosen by you the voters the public the echo chamber of Cure fans so Legit that we can even find some good songs on their last three albums :lol: oh yeah that Legit... well y'all listed the following artists 7 times...

Green Day
Sex Pistols
Slowdive
The Chameleons
The Fall

Two of my all-time favorites are here - Slowdive and The Chameleons.

I leave you with 3 party trick throw-down challenges...

#1.
Is there anybody here who loved the recent Slowdive album, but somehow preferred anything else as their year-end #1 album? I can't imagine such a thing is possible.

#2.
And is there anybody here who, like me, actually went through the ENTIRE discography of The Fall?
Well, let me be accurate, I only listened to studio albums, but there are a gazillion of them - also I haven't heard the last couple - that deep dive of mine was soooo 2013. The weirdest part of all is that I really enjoy about half the songs on each and every album, and really can't stand about half the songs on each and every album. I know. I got issues. :smth100

#3.
Who here actually doesn't like The Chameleons? :smth064
I don't believe it is possible for Cure fans.
Prove me wrong.
And be prepared to explain yourself.

Ok party people, see you in a couple days for the next part of the countdown!

Cheers

Slowdive was the best of 2017... saw them like 7 times and looking forward to see them again next month  :smth020

Why? Your taste isn't above everyone else's, or is it?  :?

I love the Slowdive album, but nowadays I find it hard to make a "ranking" list of albums. I just listen what I feel is the album which fits my mood for now, when I'm in the right mood it will be Slowdive. If not, it will be something else... I liked quite a few albums in 2017, but I can't really tell which is #1.  :oops:

But at least I can assure you I do like The Chameleons.  :)

My taste is so superior to everybody else in the known galaxy that even questioning me is blasphemy.

Wee 'lil joke.

What I was originally trying to say without the tongue in cheek goofiness, is that there are 3 kinds of folks who heard the recent Slowdive album...

1. Folks who loved it
2. Folks who were like meh whatev
3. Folks who were like errr umm nope

...and if you were ALREADY in Group #1 (hooray for Group #1)...
...and you were weird enough to have a yearly ranking of albums (congrats on not being that weird lol)...
...then is there anybody who is like oh yeah I loved that Slowdive album but yeah it was like only #4 for me last year...
...because there were somehow 3 mysterious albums that were more Disintegration-Shoegaze-Awesome...
...and I was all, no way, cmon, really?

The larger point is that I have embarrassingly narrow taste.

Hope that made more sense.

Yep. You can work on it.  ;)

Oh and by the way, I looked at the list I'd posted here, you can forget that one. (I think I'd already edited it once or twice.) It's sometimes really hard to tell who are my faves. Some days I might prefer the shoegazing/melancholy sound, other days I might prefer punk/rock, others I might prefer blues or singer/songwriter, others maybe classical... aaaah, I might go crazy putting all that into a coherent list...  :smth100

Ok, so here we are...

31 bands remain.

Tied for 25th are the 7 bands which were mentioned 8 times each in this thread:

Kate Bush
Led Zeppelin
My Bloody Valentine
Placebo
The Beatles
The Doors
The Jesus & Mary Chain

My favorite there is MBV, but JAMC are great too.

I have never heard of The Beatles. Or Placebo. Half-joke. :)
Title: Re: Favourite bands besides The Cure
Post by: PetShopBoy on January 20, 2018, 21:26:08
Tied for 23rd are the 2 artists which were mentioned 9 times each in this thread:

Bjork
Nirvana

I love Bjork too (though some of it freaks me out) - and yet have somehow never heard much from Nirvana (other than that one acoustic disc), but I was so immersed in synth-pop, shoegaze, britpop, and all the rest that I pretty much just pretended the whole grunge thing simply didn't happen. Hence the whole self-deprecating narrow taste bit.

Tied for 19th are the 4 artists which were mentioned 10 times each in this thread:

Cranes
Morrissey
Muse
The Clash

Seriously, I don't think I have ever heard Cranes, so that will be a cool project. And even though I don't really like punk, of course The Clash are fun.

I am totally in the tank for The Smiths (setting aside all the silly rivalry with The Cure from back in the day)... they hardly ever made a bad song to my ear... but Morrissey's solo stuff slowed down quickly for me... and has been dicey ever since... lots of good songs... but so much to skip... I have a rule for my Smiths/Morrissey playlist, which is that there can't be more Morrissey songs than Smiths songs... so every new meh album comes out and I tinker.

I love Muse so much, I actually went to a concert recently. I don't get out much. So that was a big deal.

Tied for 17th are the 2 bands with 12 votes each...

The Mission
U2

I love U2 too even though that is uncool. Still, the one time I saw them was mid-90s from the Pop album, worst concert I ever attended. But then again, I don't get out much.

I really need to listen to The Mission - obviously I have been missing out on something special!

 :smth024

Tied for 14th are the 3 bands with 13 votes each...

Mogwai
Pixies
Smashing Pumpkins

Mogwai is wonderful - though I would enjoy more experimentation from them and fewer soundtracks - but hey their classic stuff is delightful.

I am curious if any of the those Pumpkins fans like the latter stuff, as opposed to the classic albums.

Well, looks like we are basically ready for the Top 10-ish Results!...

Thanks.

Yeah, I would recommend more folks to revisit Slowdive, The Chameleons, Sigur Ros, and, of course, the Pet Shop Boys... but one step at a time, right? hehe

PS - the recent Ride comeback album is also solid, though the best track is on an EP.

No thanks, PSB are exactly the kind of 80's pop I can't stand any more.  :P

and many more... my taste ranges from the likes of Mark Knopfler to Guns N'Roses...
or even from jazz to classical...  :roll:
