Cut to the chase, I'm after new music. If you can't be arsed reading the rest just chuck some suggestions in the pot (this could go horribly wrong). I'm as eclectic as fcuk.

I fcuking love music. But I live for new music. Life is so easy when you find a tune, band, or genre that wakes up your senses and blows you out of the water. But...

I'm sick to shit of the same old bollox. I've reached an age / stage of my life where I'm no longer in the musical loop and listening to the same old tunes from the same old people. Shit's gone stale for me.

I appreciate you don't know this cnut from Adam but asking for this on A.N. is Desperate times I'm sure you'll agree?

So can you help a cnut out and suggest some exciting shit? Something I've never heard before that really makes me shit my pants in excitement! Previous winners for me are (in no particular order)...

Artists...
Stone Roses
Enter Shikari
Funeral for a Friend
Ride
Amanda Palmer
Kate Rusby
Bloc Party
The D.O.T

Genre's...
Ragga
Bashment
Grime (The white guy shit*** and the good rhyming shit. Don't want none of the shit lyrics stuff).
UK hip hop
Folk
Post hardcore emo metal type stuff

*** By White guy shit I mean Grime 'for' the white guy, not Grime 'By' the white guy!
I ain't no racist!

I think you'll find everything you need by playing "Jump Around" by House of Pain on a loop for the remainder of your life.

Word to your moms.

What kind of folk?

On the folk side of things, the Decemberists are my particular favourites at the moment, with Oysterband being more long-term favourites. Not sure either is too close in style to owt you'd get from Kate Rusby, however.

Oh - and On a Ragga Tip by SL2.

Worth reiterating that you need to listen to 'On A Ragga Tip'. On repeat.

Thanks gents. Some good suggestions coming through that I was unaware of. I'll have a listen to them as soon as On a Ragga Tip and Jump Around stop playing, on repeat, for eternity.

Folk wise Im drawn to traditional English (Kate Rusby, Spiers & Bowden etc) and the jaunty stuff with high tempo penny whistles and accordion type instruments. (Bellowhead type stuff preferably without the brass instruments).

Maybe have a go at the Barely Works, an early-90s folk band that released a couple of albums and were influential to a lot of bands and artists, from Eliza Carthy to Bellowhead. Sometimes a bit too out there, but their versions of Byker Hill, Old Joe Clarke and various other standards are ace. That said, they do use brass instruments. For traditional English, I don't think you can beat the Watersons stuff from the 60s and 70s. I assume you're at least partially acquainted with the Richard Thompson back catalogue, particularly the stuff he did with Linda in the 70s? If not, then maybe give that a go.

Is it just me that is imagining a bunch of Necatarines walking about in the summer looking a bit like this?
