    You have really good taste in music, here are some other artists you might like along with some songs you might want to check out.

    Nico - key tracks are Frozen Warnings, Innocent and Vain & These Days.

    The Velvet Underground - key tracks here are Sunday Morning, Venus in Furs and Heroin.

    The New York Dolls - Personality Crisis, Looking for A Kiss, Babylon

    Aimee Mann - Save Me, Wise Up, Mr Harris and Labrador.

    Tracy Chapman - Fast Car, Talkin' About A Revolution

    The Creatures - Siouxsie Sioux's side project. Dancing on Glass and Standing there are great tracks.

    Siouxsie Sioux's solo carreer is also worth looking out. She's only released on album, but with songs like Heaven and Alchemy and Into A Swan it is well worth getting.

    Joni Mitchell - Blue, Carey, Woodstock and Big Yellow Taxi

    Roxy Music - I've only got their first album but it's great. My favourites are Sea Breezes, Virgina Plain, If there Is Something and Ladytron.

    Til Tuesday - David Denies, Voices Carry, Believed You Were Lucky.

    The Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen, Pretty Vacant, Anarchy In The UK

    The Slits - Ping Pong Affair, Typical Girls and I Heard It Through The Grapevine

    Janis Joplin - Piece of My Heart, Mercedes Benz.

    Its slightly confusing comparing 2 diverse artists, at the same time as their music is carefully diverse to at least one yet another. of route the most gifted are the Manics as they write tremendous tunes themselves, and play their own contraptions. were keen on theirs on the grounds that their first album "technology Terrorists", yet I also like Robbie Williams, so the position does that leave me? MSP really.
