I want to do an occasional series where I appeal to the fans of a particular band to tell me what makes them so good, and why I should give them a second, third or fourth chance to tickle my musical palette.
It will usually be bands that have obvious musical merit, but somehow I just don’t get or haven’t properly understood what makes them so good.
I probably won’t do entire genres or styles. A Damascene conversion to reggae enthusiast seems unlikely in the short term.
So give me context, give me perspective. Cajole or berate. Point me at the right albums or tracks to re-visit or their unearthed gems that will change my mind.
