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.

"I love Garlic in pill form from Health Food store- it is a natural antibiotic and you can get the non-smelling kind in the pill. Of course the real thing is best- a nice bite or two- but this is too strong for me. It also keeps Vampires away. Once I was doing Dracula with the late Victor Bono and John Gavin with the Kenley Players in Ohio, and Bono strung raw garlic all over his dressing room door!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
