    Not really, listened to them a couple of times. Not bad, just a bit meh on them.

    I do like Mudvayne though, probably one of the only 'nu-metal' bands I like. Their bass-player is immense and so underrated.

    Well I am pretty diverse - going from hard bop jazz from Coltrane etc. to death metal by the likes of Bolthrower and Entombed. At the moment am looking backward as there is very little of interest coming out it seems. Been listening to Joy Division and Bauhaus a fair bit of late, as well as psychedelic stuff by Hawkwind etc. Also looking into Dead Kennedy's (original stuff with Jello) and re-finding The Misfits and The Cramps (Brian, what else can you suggest along these lines?).
    Some top bands would be:
    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    Sonic Youth
    Black Sabbath - early
    Pink Floyd - especially pre-Darkside
    Joy Division
    plus more I can't really think of right now (I always draw blanks when these questions are asked!!)

    WOwo - u guys ARE hardcore. I feel positively British listening to the Rakes. Also saw Rob Dickinson play the other night - yeah! Actually, anything Steve Jones plays on 103.1 gets my vote as well. We are scientists, Brooklyn's latest export rocked me a few nights ago as well.

    I grew up on metal - Motorhead, Priest, Maiden, Saxon, Daimondhead, BOC etc.....

    Like I said before, still love early Kiss.

    However, just to display some hardcore-ness:
    One of my fave shows of all time was Napalm Death, BoltThrower, ExtremeNoise Terror and ElectrHippies at London ULU - anight of mayhem and intense grindcore, filmed for BBC2 early documentatry on extreme metal in the late 80's. Words cannot describe the mayhem at that show. Blood, dislocations, electrocution and crustie punx with dogs on string. Excellent.

    Got to see Shellac a couple of months ago. Surprisingly humorous show.

    Oh yeah, another super memorable show was Nirvana opening for Tad in the basement of the Scool of Oriental and African Studies in London. The ceiling was super low, so the divers couldn't really dive high, do instead people were swinging down the central heating pipes and dropping off anywhere. I have a great photo of Kurt's arm!

    Next best was Lamefest UK: Mudhoney headlined, Tad middle billed, and Nirvana opened!


    mmm, see someone mentioned Mogwai - New Paths to Helicon was a bit of a revelation at the time.

    also, I really think there are always great new bands coming out, as well as amzing hsitorical stuff. You just have to be exposed to it. I think I've heard most genre's now, and I love it when a new band builds on that and twists it into something new, or makes it better. Arctic Monkeys are raising eybrows, but the priase is a little early I feel. The Editors are running with the gloomy JD torch. Gang of 4 and Wire seem to be generating a host of amzing followers - Futureheads for instance.

    ANd on a history tip:
    ANyone remember Skunk Anansie. SKin put on a spine tingling show shortly before they split at the Troubadoour in 2000. Amazing live band, mainly due to the 6'2" bald-black-lesbian-core that Skin brought to every show! She RULED!

    Also, dug out some goth stuff, and laughed at how unscary the Sisters of Mercy were, but they did produce some death-disco dance floor classics like Temple of Love, and Alice. Flesh 4 Lulu, Lords of the New Church, early Cult - all got my ears recently.



    DID I TALK TOO MUCH?

    Oh yeah - I dig the big sprawling sounds of stuff like Explosions in the Sky, GYBE, and Mogwai etc... When I'm designing or painting.

    I also forgot Black Heart Procession as an all-time fave.

    Whew! I could go on and on!!!

    Nice one Parka. Last I heard, she was working in a record shop in Brixton. What a waste of such a great performer and an amazing voice. I;'d like to hope a solo album would do it...but I can't see it fitting nto the zeitgeist somehow

    Actually, not a huge, huge fan. I loved the first album, and those shows at the time were like events. Living in London, one felt like the outsider (in a good way) when all the Mancs would come up for the big shows. Everyone in flares. Did like Ian Brown's stuff - especially the remix album. Who would have thought that he would do the great stuff, while Squire would just fade away?

    Hey Zomboid, glad to hear that we overlap. I have let toy collecting oust my musical quest, but music was my life for many years. Now its more background, but this whole string has made me think a lot about stuff...when I should be working!

    Dude, I used to love me some Voivod when I was 15. I wish I still had those records.

    Ian brown - thought i'd hate his stuff, but he's immense. Favourite album is music of the spheres. very underated. Don't like stone roses though.
