I’m tangerinetrees99, a teenager from Australia, who is (among other things), a: musician, artist, writer, film/TV enthusiast, reader of books, listener of music and lover of vintage clothing. My greatest passion is rock music; there isn’t much of it that I don’t like, but my favourites generally lie within the realms of punk, post-punk and glam. My list of favourite artists and albums is too long to show here – but at time of publication, among my all-time favourites are David Bowie, Patti Smith, Sonic Youth, Big Star, Pixies, The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, The Cramps, The Slits, The Raincoats, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Roxy Music, T Rex, New York Dolls, Ramones, (solo) Lou Reed, The Cure, Violent Femmes, Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Courtney Barnett, Camp Cope [look them up, they’re incredible!], The Kinks, The Who, The early Stones and (of course) The Beatles… I also play and write music myself, so check out the links below if you’d like to listen!
Asides from music, I also love film and TV. My current favourite movies are The Man Who Fell To Earth, I’m Not There, Everybody Wants Some!!, Carol, Mulholland Dr., Polyester and and Heathers, and my all-time favourite TV shows include Mad Men, Twin Peaks, Portlandia and Gilmore Girls. Some of my other interests include making art, reading (my favourite authors being Jack Kerouac, Sylvia Plath and Joan Didion) and scouring op-shops for weird clothes…
‘All You Need Is The Beatles’ went live in June 2014, then centring on both The Beatles (hence the title!) and poetry. It evolved, however, into a general music blog, with posts about a heap of awesome artists and updates on my own musical adventures…
Hope you enjoy the blog, and don’t forget to leave a comment!
