I need a new genre to dive into

Help me direct my musical tastes.

I'm an eternal generalist as you probably all know, which means I tend to penetrate certain musical genres for a while before abandoning them to the record shelves. I'm currently sinking ever deeper into dance music circa 1980, but having just imported a set of obscure Bobby Orlando 12" from America I think I'm seeing my personal quality bottom approach in a couple of months time. I need to start exploring something new soon...

Any ideas? It has to be a genre that's well-produced, probably chiefly a recorded medium, and prefferably something that's either fairly heartfelt or works well on the dancefloor. So far I've got "Outlaw Country, circa 1971" and "NWOBHM" as definite candidates.

Folktronica?

Qawwali?

Normally I'd recommend Isolationist stuff, but you'd probably hate it.

Fiarly up on the Ragga scene. Haven't bought anything ince about 04 though, so I might give myself a little update.

Bluegrass is definitely a possiblity. Or maybe Western Swing?

These are the key albums-

"An electric storm"- White Noise
Just about everything by Throbbing Gristle
"Horse Rotorvator" and "Scatology" by Coil.
All the early stuff by Einsturzende Neubaten.
The early Skinny Puppy albums are worth checking as well.
If you really want to punish yourself, try Non and Whitehouse.
And for something weirder- "Homotopy to Marie" by Nurse With Wound.

Blues.

A really good music site is www.artistdirect.com
Although they sell music through the site, their reviews and rankings are extremely honest.
One thing you can do, is look at an artist you know you like, and click on the link for Similar Artists.

I'm considering going for Los Angeles-style Club Blues, not really into the Chicago Bar Blues or Delta type scenes. Anyone recommend any artist besides Charles Brown?

Thanks for the Album list Laz. Will have a look once my broadband cap restabilizes.

How big is the depth of decent obscurity though? I've got my Faust twofer (yuck) and two Neu! albums (mmm), and feel I need to complement with maybe two or three Can albums at some point in the future, but isn't everything below the clichéd, Juilan Cope-defined "big three" symphonic Genesis-style dullness?

Actually, fuck, I'd quite like to comprehend that type of music too. Is there any "progressive" music of the seventies that isn't overbearably pretentious? Or is that the definition of "progressive"?
