Not only do I write my own music (very rarely and then only to impress girls) but I liked other peoples stuff as well ! Recently, I've been experimenting with listening to other bands than my usual diet. This has been very enjoyable.
My favourite musicians/bands are as follows;
Leftfield, whose album Leftism is a bit special. They remind me of This Mortal Coil, another great British band. Also, Portishead, who are exquisitely good. Other bands I've heard and liked are Live, who aren't big in the UK yet. Check out Black Grape and perhaps The Lightning Seeds as well. Peter Gabriel rarely puts a foot wrong, either.
