WE ASKED : Do you like garlic? And in some cases, we also asked: Do you find that you connect more with other garlic lovers (and if not, do your friends tend to also dislike it?)

"I love garlic, actually. It's included in a lot of foods that I eat."
Alison Shaw (Cranes)

Based around the brother and sister team of Jim and Alison Shaw, Cranes are able to successfully make dark, often haunting music that is also very catchy. Their earliest work was the cassette-only FUSE (1986), but it was the 1989 mini-LP "SELF-NON-SELF" that really started getting the attention of Britain's music press and radio. Signing with Dedicated/BMG, they went on to make many more great albums and, among other things, opened for The Cure on a 100 date tour of America and Europe.

"Okay here is what i think about garlic. Love garlic bread. Love garlic in my favorite red sauce on pasta in my favorite Little Italy restaurants where i go after i tape The Late Show. Take the pill regularly. Don't do anything with the clove itself. There might be vampires in Brooklyn but i am from the Bronx! I have even been to the garlic capitol of the world - Gilroy, California. But not to pay homage, just driving through. Consider me a friend of the stinking rose, but a friend that keeps a tin of Altoids close by after consumption."
