    Help find Craigos some decent music

    After selling out to Apple and giving that I have an overseas trip coming up in a week and a half's time, I have acquired an Apple ipod Touch with an 8gb size so I can get aroughly 1800 songs on it. That is perfect for me, as I don't need a collection of 50,000 songs on it.

    So I need your help as I trust many on this site to have a decent knowledge of music, whilst mine is novice at best. So to give you some sort of info that I am after and what I like:

    I tend to prefer rock music, but I would rather listen to stuff from the 70's and 80's (I could listen to Pink Floyd all day for example) then a lot of crap I hear on mainstream radio stations. I also like music from lesser known bands, or band that have gone big but some of their earlier work (like Kings of Leon - I wouldn't listen to their current album, but I would favour their earlier work) and I'm definatly a fan of Franz Ferdinand. I'm not really into stuff that has a political message in it, I hear and read enough of it, without some muso putting it into their songs to make people think they give a ****, when they don't, just to boost sales and bring in the $$$$$$$ (like Linkin Park). Some heavy metal is ok, as long as it is good, then I certainly can listen to it. I'm not really too fussed as to where the band comes from though.

    That should do it for now, but anymore questions I will post them. Thanks

    Only bands I can tell you a lot about are AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. I could name certain albums if you're interested.

    I have a fairly mainstream taste in music. Have a gander at my top listened to bands, reckon you'd go alright there.

    If you like a bit of Floyd, Craigos, you might want to check out Elbow & Doves. Both have something of Floyd's epic granduer about them.

    There Goes The Fear - Doves

    The Cedar Room - Doves

    Station Approach - Elbow (live at Glasto)

    One Day Like This - Elbow
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    Yeah, one of those songs that genuinely makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Quite, quite wonderful.

    New album out Monday, btw. Huzzah!

    Indeed. I was worried that it might be later in NZ, but smokecds.com confirms that 6th April is the release date.

    Shame they're not touring here; they're incredible live. Don't think I can afford a return air-fare to the UK just to see a Doves gig either, sadly.
