I'm interested in discussion about music of almost any kind, but my passion is out-there stuff. Examples: Jazz: Cecil Taylor, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Anthony Braxton. Classical: Xenakis, Panderecki, Ligeti. Get the idea? Also: Einsturzende Neubauten, Husker Du, Radiohead, hardcore and punk bands from the 80's and 90's like Naked Raygun, The Replacements, Meat Puppets, and, in general, anything that most people would find obnoxious/annoying with little or no commercial potential. Oh yeah, Zappa too.
