I've been carefully ranking my music collection in iTunes. I reserved five stars for my all time favourite songs, songs that changed my life, songs that I think of when I think of major iconic musicians. When I started using Last.fm I got the idea to listen to all my five star songs and 'love' them. Having transfered that meta info I could then access it using their API and a bunch of PHP code and make this, my latest greatest mashup.
The Gourds, an American alternative country band, formed in Austin, Texas in 1994. Evolving, in part, from the Picket Line Coyotes and the Grackles, the Gourds original line-up consists of Kevin Russell (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Jimmy Smith (vocals, bass, guitar), Claude Bernard (accordion, guitar, vocals), and Charlie Llewellin (drums, percussion). Llewellin was replaced by current drummer Keith Langford shortly after the second album was recorded, and multi-instrumentalist Max Johnston officially joined after being invited to play on their third album.
