Hi, my name is conjob, and Iâ€™m an addict.
I am addicted to music. All types of music, there is no music genre I am not addicted to.
I am addicted to the power chords of the 70's punk movement, from the clash to iggy and the stooges, the buzzcocks introducing me to another form of addict through 'orgasm addict', addicted to the 2nd punk movement of hardcore rock thrashed through at a million beats per minute from black punks the bad brains to henry rollins lyrical genius through black flag. I am addicted to the humor of NOFX front man Fat Mike through to all punk bands of the same era including pennywise, bad religion and lagwagon to name a few. How ever my addiction doesnâ€™t stop there, it extends into all other areas of music ranging throughout the years.
I am addicted to the hip hop beats of Public enemy and N.W.A drilling into my head 'F_ _ _ tha police', and that '911 is a joke in yo town' all the way through to the lyrical masterminds of Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli and Kanye West to name a few. Iâ€™m also addicted to these beats in Aussie form, introduced through Hilltop Hoods in the nosebleed section I later went on to discover great artists to get my fix including two lovely released this year from Katalyst and Urthboy.
Yet my addiction just gets deeper from here. From the twisted rock of the butthole surfers, to hard rock specialists fronted by Manyard James Keenan's vocals, Tool. From Indie rockers Bloc Party to the electronic beats of datarock and klaxons. This addiction even stretches to the depths of electronica and beyond, what starts at daft punk, certainly does not end there. The electronica, electro, jiggy jiggy booty rock depths of my addiction go through numerous aussie deejays ranging from bang gang to bag raiders and through international funky beat setters boys noize to justice helping me stick to the Bee-Eee-Eight-y.
Once again, i must admit, this addiction goes deeper, to little time to explore in this one session, however there is my addiction to the pop of the cops, the horror of misfits, the Sri Lankan/pommy beats of Mathangi Arulpragasam Aka M.I.A, the grooves of rockers black lips, the soulful songs from gnarls barkley, the germs and their punk revolutionary rock, the pogues alternative brilliance.
Needless to say this addiction is a good one. One that cannot be summed up in paragraphs after paragraphs, but can be in one sentence: Music enhances my life like no other addiction could.
