Anyone here a member?

It's a specifically tailored internet radio station/networking site which is supposed to give you similar artists to what you're listening to at the moment - it tracks what you're playing on your PC or, in my case, media centre. MySpace without the crap, anyone?

I only took the plunge a few, bored days ago and it seems quite good, if a little on the quiet side for forum activity.

Check it out if you're interested -

Yeah I have an account. I never had or liked the idea of Myspace, facebook or other things like that but Last.fm is really cool.

Seen it on friends computer but never bit into it. Shame that got internet on one computer and music library on other.

PT - Get a USB hard drive. I picked up a 320gig in Currys a few months ago for 50 quid. If you've got an old HD laying around it's even cheaper 'cos you just need to buy an enclosure.

Taxi Driver & B-card - Prepare to be added by an old bloke who's getting sick of 'Last.fm does not have that particular song' messages. :s

Got a 200 gig one with all my music already on, just don't listen to music on the computer atm, unless im on PS2, which is very rare and also in a different room.



I have an account: my account is "incognitive" and I listen to all kinds of music, unfortunately I don't have friends so if you want to add me as a friend go ahead.
Mostly listen to jack johnson type stuff and some rnb/hip hop on the rare occasion.



Thanks for that Tatty I will sign up later today not sure if anyone would like my taste in music as I am stuck in the 70's

nebbs, a lot of my musical tastes stem from the 70s...though it is the experimental, psychedelia, rock genre - Zappa, Beefheart, etc.

You forgot Throbbing Gristle!

I've seen Genesis P-Orridge live so .



yes Throbbing Gristle

You've seen them live? - lucky bastard!

Tac- I am surprised that our music taste says "low" because you have some bands/musicians on there that I really love...Nick Cave, Billy Bragg, Bowie, Lennon, plus more...maybe if I scrobble more of those musicians our taste will be closer...ya think? likely...don't matter though I guess lol. I often listen to music on vinyl so this could explain it. When I do listen to music online it is either the lastfm "artists that sound like thing" or the few songs I have on media player...maybe I'll upload some cd's later...anyway

Sadly no. It was at a Psychic TV reunion that the wife dragged me along to years ago in London. I hear that The Throbbs are back together, though.

I listen to all my music now (after spending days ripping individual CDs to a hard drive) by streaming from the PC to my TV's surround speakers via a modded Xbox (a 35 Media Centre? Whoda thunk it!) which automatically tells Last.fm what I've been listening to.

It'll probably take a while before my 'true' taste kicks in because every album that I listen to now goes straight to near the top of my personal chart.



F*** it!!!! I'm not here often enough to change it
Here's mine! Destiny4

My choices for user-name were all picked over.

I made this the other night, after my You-Tube issue. I fixed that problem, but I may as well try this out.
