what non-U2 music inspires creativity?

For me whenever i listen to coldplay i feel like i could write 20 novels. The music somehow tugs at my imagination so i always put it on whenever i write. what do y'all listen to for creative inspiration?

sometimes i feel that the music i like has certain... "color" and I've always found a conection with the colors and the atmosphere in my drawings...

*Metallica... i feel that their heavy, fast, rythm boostes my brain...
*Smashing pumpkins... some of my work is inspired by their music.
*the cure

I like to draw whilst listening to Radiohead and Garbage.

For writing, it's the Pogues all the way, or Nick Cave.

It really depends on my mood. I mean five years ago I had a tremendous period of artistic activity and I was listening to NIN almost exclusively.

Now I'm finding I am most inspired by the layers I find in the music of The Church, Gersey, Art of Fighting, Isidore, Sleepwell. I find that all of these have eschewed more commercial pursuits in favor of music which appeals to their artistic leanings, and that is also really inspiring too.

Well, it's inspiring as long as I don't think too much about their bank accounts....

Beattles. I don't draw or write but Beattles inspire me. Their creativity always amazes me.

sigur ros IS post-rock.

but i agree, regardless of their genre that they inspire me. maybe not so much () but a.b. certainly does.

various IDM, shoegazer stuff gets me going. some indy/alt rock too, but by that i mean mostly broken social scene and wilco.

allow me to add: tori amos, st germain, mr scruff, tosca... and, depending on my mood, a little classical can do the trick: chopin, debussy, liszt.

When I suffer from writer's block, my top three to turn for inspiration are usually:

Ryan Adams
Bright Eyes
Elliott Smith.

"Knight in shining Zubaz."
