Anything with trumpets and punk chords in it :) Reel Big Fish 'Sell out" is a good one! Welcome to hell and Planet Estoria from Ska-P. Some Los Rabanes and Manu Chau stuff. Cherry Popping Daddies, Bagster, Mad Caddies, Goldfinger's "Supermann", Porkers are heaps of Fun especially "scooner of a Black :)" I also like Forces of Evil's 'Go to Hell" almost anything from the Aquabats :D

Why aren't these bands on Radio much :'(

I sway between music styles, from Dire Straits through to Killswitch Engage. Though one thing I always love is a good classical or instrumental piece; the 9th Symphony and some movie themes are definately energising.

Something I dont do as often these days is just put a movie or tv show on the in the background, but I tend to get distracted then :P

It depends what mood I'm in when I wake up, sometimes (though not that often) it's Mozart (but not any of his songs with singing in it, blargh!)

But mostly its some form of Death/gore metal. its a little hard to describe, so heres a example: (its ok, no images of dead people or anything, in fact, the clips quite cheezy!)

Though most of the stuff I like would be a bit faster than that ( and more complicated music riffs etc :D )

I hear them on Tripple J sometimes, and If you know and like one you usually would know most.

Reel Big Fish are relatively big, as I heard them on 2day FM once. They also did a relatively popular take for 'Take on me'. They also come down often to Australia as do Goldfinger who I've heard on some Tony Hawk Video games. Reel Big fish were also the house band in the Baseketball movie.

Bagster, and the Porkers are local Bands, but the Porkers have been around for almost 20 years now, and would probably enjoy regular Tripple J airplay. Bagster is a local band that support a lot of the international Ska bands visiting here.

I'll only play music at the house party that other people will like. I might introduce some of the stuff I like, but the general concencus at parties is that people want to listen to stuff they are familiar with.

As for Ska-P, they are a really huge spanish band. Well they are big in Spain and South America if their internet publicity is to be believed. Angriest trumpet noises you'll ever hear, very fast tempo. A columbian dude from Uni introduced me to them. Manu Chau is mainstream French/Spanish pop/rock/raggae musician. He was on the Radio all the time when I was in France a few years back.

You can listen to Reel Big fish songs at reelbigfish.com and I googled some Ska-p songs from the internet :)

whenever I'm drawing i like to listen to the laid back tunes of Tim Pearson its simply wonderful stuff

and i quote from this music genius's website this music is the "sound of sex during the rain and early late hours of dawning"... i couldn't have put it better myself. wonderful!

I would recommend listening to all his most famous hits including...
Deep inside
Southern rain
and who could forget the chart topping smash hit that was "C"


p.s. if anyone doesn't get this my full name is tim pearson except [as far as i know] this is not me.

Honestly? No. :D

The lightest metal I have would be some old Sepultura, but I'm getting progressivley more and more into heavier, gurglier, sounds like a pig gargling shit with its head in mud kinda music. Cannibal Corpse is about the lightest that I play on my stez now. :D






(and Mr Mozart, go figure)

Oingo Boingo (anything), Eurythmics (1984 soundtrack), Icehouse (Sidewalk album only) and sometimes Wham (the early years)...

1) Reel Big Fish: Kiss Me Deadly. Not the definitive (that's Lita Ford), but one you need to be drunk for.

2) Try the Armitage III soundtrack. It's pulse-pounding electronica, but not loud enough to be distracting. Also, there is a song that is a throwback to the 40's torchsongs, but with cyberpunk imagery. If you put that on in the background, you will get something done..

"Hey sucker..."

Hey Dillon,
Vigil (#1-8), one of my titles getting release at Supanova this year was written to Wham’s The Final (best of) and Eurythmics (1984 soundtrack)

The ideas of a 1980’s fluorescent-culture and the bleak movie version of 1984 are woven into the narrative if anyone cares to look… serious… ;)

I still listen to these albums on my computer while I write even though Vigil is essentially finished…

The soundtrack to Garden State is always a winner for me. Once I'm drawing I dont like anything thats too heavy otherwise I just find myself tapping along to the beat and before too long i'm into the air drums.
