    first tapes bought : cure "wish," sonic youth, "dirty," jeff beck "blow by blow" how many kids in elementary school were rockin the SY? haha

    my best friend and i would report to eachother what we saw on MTV NEWS each day in 3rd grade...its the most vivid memory i have of that time...back when 3rd bass made the news and hammer was still livin larggeee...

    My parents were big Elvis Costello, Blondie, Devo, Sade, and other good late 70's/80's fans. My brother liked classical rock and metal. He bought a Downset cd from his friend and he didnt' like it so he gave it to me. It was my first cd so I wore the shit out of it. I met a girl through dance who found out I liked them and started taking me to local punk shows when I was about 12. There I discovered punk, ska, and some indie rock bands.. Then I discovered hardcore, which I could appreciate because it was angry but still wasn't metal (i hate metal).. Luckily I met some versitile kids within the hardcore scene who got me more into underground type hip hop. Around the same time I started going to a dance club where I met a couple good DJ's who got me into jungle and dnb. I don't know if I really have a musical path.. If I do, it's a versitile one. I'm exposed to a lot because of the kindof music I listen to, the kind of kids I meet, etc. I'm lucky I guess.

    Man, my musical tastes have changed SO much over the years. But I still like slamming to some Europe, GNR, or Def Leppard. The 80's were cool.

    I think my first CD I actually bought was the Beavis and Butthead compilation. It had Anthrax covering the Beasties "Looking Down the Barrell of a Gun". I was like 8 years old sporting a pretty stylin' mullet.

    I've gone from listening to metal, to gangster rap, to electronica. Now, I don't have a favourite kind of music. If something is good, I'll listen to it. I'm the only person I know who can go from Jurassic 5 to Weezer to Massive Attack to Deftones to the Beatles to Radiohead to God Speed You Black Emperor to AFI to DELTRON 3030 in one half hour listening session.

    I hate it when people ask me "what kind of music do you like?"

  7. I dont know...anyone that has an older brother or sister get really influenced when hes young.Not exactly influenced but its the music that floats around in the house.So when i was younger i listened to a lot of heavy metal and that kind of stuff(i think that the majority of kids born between 76-80 did)
    I now listen to alot of different types of music,but i can tell you one thing,that comes from my heavy metal childhood...I really miss solo guitars.
    Thats why i loved that stupid Daft Punk song!

    Musical impressions are set really young.

    I honestly didn't know the difference between Bob Marley, Raffi, Third World and the muppets. Shit was always being played.
    Once you find roots, things will always go deep.
    That's why organic textured music is big with me.
    But on the other side...
    always having midi gear and electro equipment in the house,
    has made ukGarage and 2stap a little more palatable.

    I blame mommy leaving me with rockstar/rappabilly babbysitters. There really isnt anything I dont listen too. I love music. It can piss you off, make you violent, or it can be the flipside and have you all googly eyed in love and sad as shit. I blame groups like run dmc for sucking me into the early rap/breakbeat era. Groups like black flag and the decendents for making punk rock fun. Mom for playng Neil Diamond and Bozz Scaggs. You all know when you hear oldies you instantlt remember car rides to families houses and Shit. I blame sports for making me open minded and integrating all my musical tastes.

    obviously,i think my mom had alot to do with it,she was real into classic rock,she loved jethro tull,zepplin,bowie etc.so i think thats were it statred for me,second i think skateboarding really shaped me musicly and generaly.skateing brought about the punk scene to my eyes and then the hardcore scene,more of the staight edge variety,skateing also got me into as cheesey as it sounds,the alternative side of rock,or modern rock and rollers.skateboarding also forced me to keep an open mind about music.i think mtv really got me into alot of things musically.i probally heard my first hip hop on mtv,in elementary school i hung out with alot of kids whos brothers and sisters were burn outs,so i got my apreciation for metal from them.as i got older and more awear of my surroundings,i think growing up in the detroit area shaped me also,being my appreiciation for old soul/motown stuff,jazz,and all thinks electronic.and now im open to just about anything,i listen to a wide variety of music and enjoy the new music experience,ill give anything a go.thats why music is great,it can change your whole outlook.

    I'm ecleptic (sp). My origin into what music i like pretty much came from where i lived and my brother and sister. Being the late eighties i heard mad rap and shit , big hair bands, and freestyle. And my dad was always playin old shit like bobby womack, o.v. wright, barry white, heat wave, brothers johnson, stevie wonder.etc.. So that old disco and funk is the shit i love. Bout early 90's i heard lots of house from my brother so i subconsciencly began to like it , even though i said that shit is wack same with metal. So now im mostly hip hop and shit like that but i still listen to everything else..

    The above probably make absolutly no sense to yall, but when i said it my mind it sounded good..

    My parents were really into motown oldies, almost anything on mtv, electro, funk, elvis, the beatles, doors, jimi etc. (They have this HUGE record collection - I will own them suckers one day) My uncle was really into early hip hop - run dmc, ll cool J, grandmaster flash, beastie boys, etc. Grandparents were into the mexican variety.. mariachi, salsa etc. The neighbors were into rock -- the heavy kind and the butt rock variety.

    The first tape I owned was by sade. I loved it. The first cds I owned were a disco compilation & a techno compilation. My taste of music is wide.. I can appreciate all kinds. But of course.. I'm pretty particular when it comes to music these days because a lot of crap comes out. I need something with substance....

    (I've been on a jazz kick lately - billie holiday, (bossa nova is where it's at!) astrud gilberto, stan getz, miles davis, john coltrane, etc etc)
