Interesting musicians who weblog - know of any?
October 5, 2005 9:33 AM   Subscribe

I'm putting together a comprehensive list of interesting musicians who run their own weblogs - can you help?

I've already got a bunch but I'd like to try and put together a definitive list. When I say interesting musicians, I'm talking about those that fall just slightly (or quite a bit) off of the beaten path - musicians like Bob Mould, or Mike Doughty, or even Radiohead. Basically, musicians that would be considered (and I hate using this term) "alternative", or at the very least popular musicians with something interesting to say.

Here's my list so far: Thanks!

This site has a bunch of links (scroll down) to band blogs. Some you already have.

Though it's not a weblog, Jeff Black does one of my favorite podcasts- "Black Tuesdays."

Bob Wiseman (not a blog but runs his own site and updates every few months).
Low
TW Walsh
The Constantines
Danko Jones I run their site but Danko drops road entries and podcasts into The Road section. He also has a weekly radio show (which you can listen to on the web and is archived) which may fit your bill.
Cuff the Duke
I am Robot and Proud
LIARS
Mike Watt
The Handsome Family
Architecture in Helsinki

I suppose most of these aren't 'blogs' in the normal sense but are musician sites on which the musicians updates the news section themselves.

One of the first blogs I ever read was from the guys in Hey Mercedes. They broke up, but a few of the members still make the occasional post.

TW Walsh! Dude doesn't get enough love.

Even if you're not a Momus fan, he's got a lot of interesting material.
