Question for the EM musicians on the forum: what music influenced you apart from EM?
Is there any kind of music (or even single albums - or single tracks, for that matter) that helped your music become what it is?

Yes for me besides my EM heroes: Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Level 42, some Dutch bands: Doe Maar, Toontje Lager, and also Classical music like Vivaldi, Mozart, Pachelbel etc.

Some of my main influences would be Floyd and Black Sabbath.
Also I was into the NWOBHM at the time, so got some influences from there!

the Beatles - Revolver, esp. Tomorrow Never Knows
Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsies, esp. Machine gun

Well here is the story behind the story Wink

Jimmy Hendrix - Electric Lady land
Led Zeppelin - Dazed and Confused
Yes - Topographic Oceans
Yes - Close to the Edge
Emerson Lake and Palmer - Welcome Back My Friends To The Show ....
Pink Floyd - Ummagumma
Hawkwind - Space Ritual
Black Sabbath
Deep Purple - Concerto
(Peter Green's )Fleetwood Mac - Albatros
The Shadows
Telstar
Pink Fairies
Peter Gabriel's Genesis
The Alman Mulo Band
....
........
.....
.....
.....
and
The S_ex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers etc.
because they brought the music back to the people Wink
it became DIY again.
The whole Do It Yourself movement triggered me to start for myself.

Oh, and one thing to add: humour (rarely heard in music), like

the Bonzo Dog Dooh Dah Band and Frank Zappa (the Flo & Eddie era)

Pink Floyd.
The Doors.
Peter Gabriel.
Mike Oldfield.
Hawkwind.
Steve Hillage.
The Who.
Early '80s British electro-pop acts - Gary Numan, Human League, Ultravox, Howard Jones, Thomas Dolby.

And though I love and revere The Beatles and listen to them all the time, I can't really hear how they've influenced me as such.

With the Beatles I think it's just how they influenced so many people that THEN influenced us..
Oldfield I should also have added to my list.. especially ommadawn

Outside EM I would quote, of course, Pink Floyd (especially the Barrett era) but most formative for me was my exposure to the first wave of the "industrial" movement, i. e. Throbbing Gristle, SPK, NON, Einstürzende Neubauten, Coil, Test Department, Cabaret Voltaire etc. Human League, OMD, and John Foxx were quite improtant, too.

Above all -- conceptually and aesthetically -- I would name Brain Eno, though.

Stephen

This is an imposible thread
I keep reading and thinking of people who did influence me clearly (to me anyway)\
Eno as stephen mentions is certainly conceptually there
F242 were a big influence on me in the mid to late 80's and were why I wanted a sampler...
Trevor Horn with "Slave to the Rhythm" just made me get totally into studio recording....
etc etc etc etc

Although many bands have influenced what I do, I think that my desire to play comes from:

Mike Oldfield
Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds
'Son of My Father' and 'Good Grief Christina' by Chicory Tip
'Popcorn' by Hot Butter
'The Crunch' by the RAH Band
The Piltdown Men
The John Barry Seven
The Shadows
'The Dark Side of the Moon'
'Theme from Star Wars' by Meco

Pink Floyd
Manfred Mann's Earth Band -> his Minimoog lead lines are fantastic!
and J.S.Bach

stone age hardrock
sabbath - quo etcetera

a small niche of classical music
j.s. bach, friedeman bach, dominique scarlati and some.

but to be honest I never did listening to music that much and these days almost never anymore, I am a maker not a listener.
