In the mic break following the set featuring Luscious Jackson, I commented that one of the most seldom spoken-of advantages to marriage (aside from the love and commitment and other, similar mushy stuff) is the immediate access it provides to someone else's records. (I.E. Luscious Jackson -- a band I always suspected I would like, but never really bothered to investigate. My wife, however, is a big fan, and we have her to thank for my playing them during this show.)
That said, what's the best band that you ever got turned onto by your sweetie? It doesn't have to be through marriage, it can just as easily be some ridiculously popular or obscure band that you first heard through an (ex/current) boy/girlfriend, or general heart throb of any stripe. Discuss:

Ha ha, I knew Scott was probably to blame/thank for the Carter USM!
Anyway, Randy Sarf Git is surely a reference to the Monkees' song. (Sarf being for Sarf Landan what with them being a band from New Cross.)

the war prayer was like a movie of your archive problems this weekend.

My wife introduced me to the joys of Enigma. The first two albums are great for bubble baths.

I love fashion; I'd never thought of using a Slinky(tm) as a hat?
The only song my wife introduced me to, was 'Into the Mystic'. I must have been asleep in the decade it was originally released.
In kind, I introduced her to the Fall, starting with Live at the Witch Trials. She still hasn't forgiven me. I'll play Jesus Lizard or the Melvins, just to remind her how lilting Mark E Smith can really be.

Never been married, though about 20 or so years ago in a bar in Kent, Ohio this woman turned me on to the Flaming Lips, I never did sleep with her.

pete in LA:
FYC (whev'e been together awhile)
Wifey is now going through a phase where all she wants to hear is stuff that sounds like Mountain, including Mountain.
ps. Leslie West rules.

wifey got me deeper into the Cocteau Twins and Siouxsie & The Banshees. also taught me a lot about industrial. she introduced me to Skinny Puppy. also got me into APB.
Mike, i can't thank you enough for ending your program with "Music For 18 Musicians," perhaps my favorite piece of music.

My first husband not only brought me to [the] Jesus [Lizard], he also helped me to get over a near-barfight-with-Tod A.-circa-1987-grudge and learn to love Cop Shoot Cop.
It was the tattoo artist boyfriend, back when I was leetle bitty jailbait, who taught me about Cab Voltaire and SPK. Good times.
