....blokes like lists, apparently. The implication being that women are presumably too busy thinking about kittens, and, I dunno, knitting or something to be bothered about them. Well here's a very brief list with something for everyone (in that it's a list with women in it). A suitable heading might be something like: women I was unhealthily obsessed with in my formative years (late 1980's - early 1990's, roughly).

Toni Halliday of Curve. Anyone wishing to know where Garbage got all their ideas from could do worse than listen to Doppelganger (1992).

Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles. Check this out - video footage of her performing with Matthew Sweet in early 2006. Susanna Hoffs is 47. Incredible.

Miki Berenyi of Lush. To be honest their music was fairly unmemorable (generic "shoegazing" stuff. The only "shoegazing" album you will ever need is Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. Warning: this album will melt your brain.) but she was very lovely. Mixed Hungarian and Japanese parentage, apparently, which explains her exotic looks. Though not the hair colour - strictly entre nous I think it might have been dyed.

There you go - something for everyone. Next week: my favourite knitting patterns.
