The Null Device
I've started looking around Wikipedia
(after seeing it mentioned in David Gerard's LiveJournal a few million times). It's certainly got a wealth of information about musical genres, mentioning everything from shoegazing
to rhythm and blues
(which has nothing to do with what's currently known as "R&B") to No Wave
to twee pop
. There's also extensive material on heavy metal (someone there must be really into it), including this encyclopædic overview
, pieces on all the subgenres of it, and even a piece on the heavy-metal umlaut
. Not to mention non-music-related topics such as this useful overview of Situationism
Mind you, some of the information is a bit dubious, such as the bit in the Britpop entry which talks about ""shoegazing" bands such as Ride, Stereolab or Oasis".
