A break from your regularly scheduled review programming…
My book, The Rhinoceros Conspiracy Live, is about a band and I thought it would be fun to think about the kinds of music the main characters listen to.
Uri tries to only listen to music released in and around the year he was born. So Nirvana’s Nevermind, Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik, 2Pacalypse Now, a bit of Smashing Pumpkins, and a little bit of Enya.
Zepp would tell you he listens to Sex Pistols and the Rolling Stones, because after all like most all-male indie bands they started out inspired by 70s white man music, but secretly he’s been listening to Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Carly Rae Jepsen’s E.mo.tion on repeat for months.
Joe listens to Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence album pretty much constantly. He also really does listen to the Rolling Stones and David Bowie, and Stevie Wonder, as well as having a fondness for old school blues and early rock.
Wesley listens to whatever is on the radio because he likes everything.
