Michael Oldfield - skilled arranger [and musician for the first 4-5 albums]
Weather Report - lotta notes
Cocksparrer - Oi!
Mekons - I like the idea of a punk single called "Never Been In A Riot"
Divinyls - had their moments
Willie Nelson - a benevolent presence
Pussy Galore - not [often] but sometimes
Sisters of Mercy - someone played the album with "This Corrosion" on it and said they were a "parody" of goth like the Dukes of Stratosphear. I liked it on that basis.
Nina Hagen - never got into her [except for the big hit].
Kim Carnes - only know the hit which is [ok]
Joan Armatrading - need more study but I generally [haven't liked much of] what I've heard
INXS - first rate 80s radio pop
Foghat - harmless boogie without the woogie
White Denim - stains easily
bobz pretty much summed up what i'm thinking here, with a few personal parentheses.
