Honestly, I'll take the Grip Weeds over anyone on that list.

Augustus Asplet Le Gros
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Augustus Asplet Le Gros
Augustus Asplet Le Gros or Augustus Aspley Le Gros (14 April 1840, Saint Helier – 3 December 1877) was a Norman language poet from Jersey and a Jurat of the Royal Court of Jersey.
Biography[edit]
A.A. Le Gros was raised in the parish of Saint Peter, Jersey. One of the first pupils at Victoria College founded in 1851, he entered a solicitor's office, but abandoned his study of the law to work on the farm of his grandfather in Saint Peter. In 1865, he was elected secretary of the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural Society. In 1873, the parishioners of Saint Peter elected him constable, the head of the municipality.
In the same year he was one of the founders of the Société Jersiaise, of which he became the first secretary. He began work on a dictionary, which remained unfinished, of Jèrriais, which served as the basis for the Glossaire du Patois Jersiais edited by the Société Jersiaise in 1924.
His poems, in a rather lyrical style, signed A.A.L.G., in Jèrriais, in French and in English, appeared in the papers and almanacs of Jersey and Guernsey.

La Nouvelle Année, a review edited by A.A. Le Gros
For eight years Le Gros published a small annual review of poetry in Jèrriais and Guernésiais. He also published two small volumes of poetry in English, Poems for Home and Fireside (London, 1863) and Poems (London, 1868), besides a history of Mont Orgueil in Jersey : Mont Orgueil Castle: Its History and Ruins.
In 1875, the electors of the island made him a Jurat. He died at the age of 37 in 1877.
Some of his texts have been set to music in the 20th and 21st centuries.

couple of artists I'd be tempted to write in:

East River Pipe
Frank Sinatra

(waves from Jersey)

East River Pipe for sure.

Where is George Clinton?

dlp9001, Sunday, 29 May 2016 18:18 (one year ago) Permalink

Voted for Red but I think Patti Smith is Jersey enough to be on the list. Also I would write in Jim Albertson

kind of lolth but mostly strahd (los blue jeans), Wednesday, 1 June 2016 03:41 (one year ago) Permalink

but probably not vote for him either

As a lifelong NJ resident I am obviously casting my vote for Springsteen. For those looking for more write-in possibilities how about:

Whitney Houston
Karen O
Gaslight Anthem
The Smithereens
Shaquille O'Neal
My Chemical Romance
Winter Hours

misfits are the obvious correct choice

Al Moon Faced Poon (Moodles), Wednesday, 1 June 2016 13:24 (one year ago) Permalink

Voted for David S. Ware because nobody else was going to, and because he lived two towns over from me. Super nice guy.

i voted for ware too! though after seeing heron oblivion on saturday night i might shoulda gone w/ meg baird

adam, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 14:29 (one year ago) Permalink

david s. ware as well, because he was great. Almost tempted to vote Redman for his first two albums, but too much he did afterwards was so so.

calzino, Wednesday, 1 June 2016 14:50 (one year ago) Permalink

Seriously, George Clinton. I grew up in the town where he had his barber shop. I love the feelies and all, but come on.

(Actually O.T. Zappo is the correct choice, but nobody is going to know who he is and google isn't going to help you much on this one.)

tossed Sarah Vaughan a vote (my dad always talked about the time she sang in the church choir with him)

tbh, I never really felt like Bruce was that big a deal south of Cherry Hill. Heard more stories about George Thorogood.

We have a winner. I'll even concede O.T. Zappo to him.

Well if we're choosing people because we lived near them, I'm going to have to vote for Enzo Stuarti.

ducktails and real estate shouldn't have different listings. you're going to split the matt mondanile vote... not that he would win anyway.

memory tapes is the best new jersey chillwave act anyway

Treeship, Thursday, 2 June 2016 05:32 (one year ago) Permalink

I never thought of Ducktails as chillwave. First record (which I love) is "lo-fi bedroom pop" or whatever and the more recent records (not a fan) are more straight up cleanly produced indie rock iirc

they've moved away from the chillwave sound, but i think their early stuff was definitely a chillwave side project to "real estate," which had a kind of chillwavey dreamlike quality to it too, even though they were releasing more or less straight ahead surf rock songs

to round out this morning's chillwave listening. the part that starts at 16:30 is just incredible.

Glad to see David S Ware got some votes, was listening to Godspelized earlier and not caring if he fits the criteria for jersey bard.

His Parker/Shipp/Ibarra quintet does bring out his lyrical qualities beautifully though.
