    jesus and mary chain
    new order
    syd barrett
    stereolab
    sonic youth
    olivia tremor control
    clouddead
    explosions in the sky
    mum
    will oldham
    white stripes
    captain beefheart
    cat power
    dinosaur jr.
    flying saucer attack
    future sound of london
    godspeed you black emperor
    half japanese
    hurricane #1
    t.rex
    mercury rev
    mogwai
    pavement
    jim o'rourke
    scrawl
    sigur ros
    spiritualized
    neil young
    orbital
    cocteau twins
    cure
    bongwater
    flaming lips
    soft machine
    buzzcocks
    adam ant
    joy division

    I have the Softmachine sessions and they're some of the Softmachines
    best stuff. Really great. That CD is my "Christmas music" since I bought
    it around Christmas 1993.

    The syd barrett and olivia tremor control sessions are both fragile
    psychedelic classics. Soft Machine actually plays on the syd barrett
    sessions.

    OK, I've heard that Softmachine (which, by the way is my very very
    favorite band in the world) did some work with Syd Barrett. I also
    recall either hearing or reading that they had some communication
    problems since Softmachine were always talking about scales and measures
    etc. and Syd would just give them this empty stare...

    Sort of like when Miles Davis suggested to Jimi Hendrix that they do
    some work together. He offered to send Jimi some notes to look over and
    suggested they talk afterwards. Jimi didn't read notes and they ended up
    not working together. Too bad, probably would've been extraordinary to
    hear what those two could've come up with together.

    I'm going to hunt down the Syd Barrett Peel sessions now.
