Re: fav. non hippy band/musician#119750 2 years, 7 months agoYeah, what are the parameters? Hendrix was a hippie; Pink Floyd? were they hippies? Hmmmmm...
Props to Dire Wolf for the Ozric mention, fer sure!
R.E.M. was my GD before I really got turned on.
Been on a Kraftwerk kick lately, & generally get a New Order/Joy Division fix on a weekly basis.
Coletrane was a hippie before hippies, I'll always love him.
Less into artists these days than genres, dig. Groovin' on mad downtempo/ambient/psytrance interspersed with random dub reggae lately. And I play kirtan recordings a lot as well, Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, et al.
I keep getting a little concerned I'm gonna burn out on Furthur cuz it's all I wanna listen to anymore, but so far, does not seem likelyIf unable to dance, I'll crawl.
