A is for Mick, B is for Francesco
John at TexasBestGrok came across a musical time-waster: assemble an alphabet of bands or musicians you positively like. Here's what I came up with:
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso
Hicks, Dan, and His Hot Licks
Incredible String Band
New Orleans Klezmer Allstars
3 Mustaphas 3
Van der Graaf Generator
I avoided duplicating John's choices (except for one awkward letter), generally preferred the obscure to the familiar, and tried to cover as broad a range of music as possible. I'll be very surprised if anyone reading this has heard all these artists.
*Early stuff only.
**With reservations and careful selection.
Soundtrack: No Strings Attached, "Music for a Found Harmonium"
I've heard of a few of those, but not all. Looks like some new musical territory to explore.
