alright

I don't listen to much

but I would like to start

so please broaden my music horizons

I would prefer good stuff that most people have never heard before (a good example, killing joke)

I like almost all types of music (not as much country and a few others, though)

please help me out

Killing Joke ruled. :)
How new do want the music to be?

How little do you want other people to know the stuff? Do you want to be part of a record-wanking subculture whose only purpose is impressing other people with records that are obscure, but that everyone in the subculture have anyway, reaffirming the mutual belief in their own superiority?

I can reveal that what got me into music on a serious basis was the box set The Stax Story (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004Z3ZW/qid=1049015444/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/102-5109134-3604947?v=glance&s=music&n=507846), which provided enormous amounts of strands to futher pursue and made me think that generally highly-regarded acts might be worth looking into...

A good alternative is probably the brilliant Tougher than Tough: The Story of Jamaican Music (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000003QLC/qid=1049015529/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-5109134-3604947?v=glance&s=music).

For any info on the above, just ask. Alternatively just name another band you like and I'll attempt to suggest other you may like.

Amazon, Rough Trade or a good indepedent record store.

God Machine- Moody rock with all the cliches stripped out. Active 1990- 1993.

Coil- Eerie and disturbing experimental/industrial band. Active 1983 onwards.

Hair & Skin Trading Company- Heavy head-rock band heavily influenced by linear krautrock sounds. Active 1991- 1996

Loop- Heavy and claustrophobic head-rock with loads of fuzz and circular riffing. Active 1986- 1990.

Spacemen 3- Minimalist experimental psychedelia influenced by Stooges, MC5, Suicide. Active 1985- 1991.

Death in June- Black clad and doomy post-punk. Active 1984 onwards.

Non- the first "industrial" band. Very inventive, very strange. Active 1977 onwards.

Queen Adreena- Raucous and deranged art-rock with caterwauling female vocals. Active 1996 onwards.

The Young Gods- Incredible Swiss sampler band, far too fast and inventive to be labelled "industrial". Active 1987 onwards.
