I'm primarily interested in popular music record producers 60s-80s - see my website for my faves. Very favourite producers - Nick Launay, Ken Scott, George Martin. Anything abstract, unreal, and definitely unperformative.

I'm a mad Supertramp fan - don't know why. So the origins of my music taste lie in well-produced 70s art rock, electronic, then onto disco, industrial, new wave, technopop, a bit of Oz pub rock, hip hop, electronic dance (mainly house and its many manifestations) until about '92, and then it stopped. And it hasn't really moved on from there. Everything more recent just seems boring. My creed - if it's no weirder than Shiny Shiny, it ain't weird enough.

I am completely over: bootay; poontang; bass my big balls; whiny boys; knowing whiny boys; knowing whiny girls; if it hurts my ego then it hurts the world; fey boys with mandolins; Melanie Safka wannabes; sameoldsameold beats breaks trips; genres; subgenres; microgenres; nanogenres; djs in a rock band - it's the new style; I just discovered my dad's record collection/vinyl it's so cool; "experimental"/"alternative" music that's just the same old.

In the last five years I've been enjoying discovering (or re-discovering) loads of old fantastic releases that are new to me (as an adult). Some standouts are:
Can - Tago Mago
Carpenters - A Song For You
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu
Dome - 1 + 2
Echo And The Bunnymen* - Heaven Up Here
Joni Mitchell - Hejira
Various - 41 Pardons: M Squared Rare Recordings 1979-1983 Volume 1
Wendy & Lisa - Eroica
