Welcome to The Schoolcast wherein I acknowledge a few of the people who have educated my music taste more than most. Without a Musical Big Brother figure in my life I have relied on a motley crew of people from all over to get me into music to which I might otherwise never have been exposed, and the process continues today of course.
For someone who is an accidentally self-appointed arbiter of taste* I actually know relatively little about music, and particularly the history of pop music. I don't know much Neil Young, for example, I don't know much Pink Floyd, I don't know much Dinosaur Jr. or Guided By Voices, or even Can - and those are just the ones for which I have been directly chided.
Anyhow, I am making inroads into some of this ignorance, and it's actually a shitload of fun, as you can imagine. As with last week's Neil Young write-up, I think I'll start covering some of these records on the blog a bit more often, as I think the blend of new and old music will work well.
