The Velvet Underground. Art and sleaze, perfectly balanced, and they set the blueprint for black-clad cool.

The Stooges. They hated each other, bikers threw beer bottles at them, Iggy was half-naked. What more do you need?

The Irish Descendants. They make good songs.

What is the "greatest" band?
Maybe the Beatles, their story is so amusing. They got everything. Not only fame, drugs, women, it's the details. It always makes me laugh. Something like "inspired by Bob Dlan, indian music and drugs" and so on. You don't have to change much and you get the Rutles movie. Enough weird stories for 10 band bios

Julian Cope. He once took 27 acid trips in a single day, chased his keyboard player across the moors with a loaded shotgun (firing at him) for an entire afternoon, spent a large part of 1984 thinking he was a city centre, and caused one of the largest outbreaks of mass vomiting ever when he tore his stomach open onstage with a broken microphone stand. Made the occasional record too.
