* Totally agree. When I queried "Wire" [sorry :~)] The HOMR server
helpfully recommended:

Guthrie, Woody
Midnight Oil
Lloyd Cole and the Commotions
Rolling Stones, The
Talk Talk
Morrison, Van
Lanois, Daniel
Cruise, Julee
Kid Creole And The Coconuts
O'Connor, Sinead
Living Colour
Mother Love Bone
Roches, The
