    All this talk about Quatro, Jeez if PAT BENATAR is not in, Suzi is a mega-long shot - Not being pesimistic but just plain and simple realistic.

    Then, if none of those categories listed in Wikipedia accurately describe her (Kate Bush) music genre or format, why don't you provide us with your best foot forward description of her body of work. Is it uncategorizable?

    Yes, WMMS was great in their heyday. M105 was even better.

    Well, it's not that the categories aren't accurate, it's that the categories are unimportant to me, so I take no notice of them.

    BOTH good ones.

    If you like it to enough to get more, get Zombie or Original Sufferhead (which has serious comparisons that can be musically drawn between it and Magma!)

    I do pay some attenention when the have the annual TV broadcast, because I enjoy seeing old bands get on stage one more time, and sometimes even perform together with former members etc - but the whole premise makes little sense to me as the institution prefers to feature music artists who have had enduring popularity, even if they have not produced any rock music. In the early days, I guess it was pretty easy to point out the great rock pioneers in the early days of the Rock Hall, Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, etc - but there are only so many legendary artists in the genre. I don't know of any rock music from Mary J. Blige, JAY-Z, Chaka Khan, LL Cool J or Dionne Warwick, and that's just a sampling from the current list of "nominees". The same goes for Madonna and many other pop stars who have been honored previously. If Madonna seems appropriate to honor as a rock artist, then why not have Itzhak Perlman or Andrea Bocelli in the rock hall? I don't see their music as being further away from rock and roll than that of Dionne Warwick, for example.

    I think Suzi's brother, Michael, should be nominated.

    Again, Devo should get in.

    Their fourth and last album for Warners, Mother's Pride, was produced by Todd Rundgren around the same time he was doing the Todd album, and it's great-- sport of a proggy take on the Laura Nyro sound.

    I went through a period in the early '90s when Zombie and No Agreement were never far from my turntable. Groove for days. I even named a cat after him - Fela Anikulapo Kitty. I think it might be time to dig deeper into that catalogue!

    Expensive Shit is one of his defining albums, much in the way that Maggot Brain practically represents all assets of Funkadelic. It used to be available on a twofer with the followup, He Miss Road, which is also good but somehow doesn't quite succeed as brilliantly to play the maximal out of the minimal.

    My personal Fela these days is Upside Down. It shares with Shit those insanely tight brass charts, but also introduces a sense of added "inner" dynamic to the intense groove and the vocal backing.

    Here in Norway, Smokie still enjoy the highly dubious status of "friends" on the rural circuit, a label issued to international artists whom are thought to be "big" by Norwegian "harrys" (rednecks/hillbillies) simply due to being from English-speaking countries. Others of that ilk are Bonnie Tyler, Christie (yep, the 70s British group), Tanita Tikaram, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Dr. Hook and Nazareth. Smokie's "Living Next Door to Alice" and Nazareth's "Love Hurts" are amongst the best-selling hit singles of all time here, and you have a considerable segment of folks believing these to constitute the biggest thing ever - not biggest merely here at home but in the whole world. When they somehow accidentally find themselves stranded for some bizarre reason in Lyon or San Sebastian or Lagos or Buenos Aires or Baltimore or Jakarta or Kyoto, they still imagine for real that "Living Next Door to Alice" and "Love Hurts" are the greatest things to happen to these places as well, and won't hear otherwise.

    Smokie were dreadful, "Alice" or not.

    That's pretty silly. Everyone knows that the biggest thing in Baltimore is Carl Hupp.

    Original Sufferhead is an absolute must-buy. I think this is Fela's greatest disc.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.
