so I was polishing some cranks last night and when i digging some CDs out to listen to I put on some old stuff I hadn't listened to in an age - Buffalo Tom and The Levellers :D - so it got me wondering, what is your retro music of choice?

(bonus points for having it the same year as your bike!)

When Im building wheels or so, I often listen to some classical music. Beethoven, Tsjaikovczi and whatnot. I don't think in terms of 'retro' music or so, I even have a wide array of music I like. From Pearl Jam to some good german/french electro (Daft Punk, Phoenix). And from Beethoven to Queens of the Stoneage/Eagles of death metal.

I'm quite partial to the Archers omnibus and a cup of tea and some shortbread. :-) :-)

Who says you can't listen to the Archers in between 'The W" and "Enter the Wu' It can't all be 9 millies etc, even real G's need to get out into the coutryside every now and then and Ambridge is as good a place as any. Besides all this recorded aggression is just for fun, we all really like mucking out the animals and gossip at the local P.O - That's really keepin' it real.

maybe we should say what alternative or embarrassing stuff we listen to when we 'bike' (can it be a verb?!)

eg - Archers(Wu-Tangled) / classical music (Jeroen) = alternative
or
10000 maniacs/Levellers (me) = embarrassing!

Isn't listening to music while you bike a bit dangerous?

I listen to the music while i bike but it's all in my mind - (well the voices are), not on an mp3 player.

Last ride was Johnny Cash.

Next one will be Nas I can tell.
