Then as now, great band, great performers, great 'atmosphere'.

In The Light. Some great mixes came out recently. One has been posted in my OP


I think I decided to post this topic because I bought a new edition of the BBC album. Has some new material on there and you know how stingy Page has been with the archive material.

Releasing the goodies may spoil some of the mystery, but I'm a sucker for demos and alternate mixes. I'm pleased with the new issues that came out.

No doubt about it, Zeppelin definitely had a mystique about them
1 of the top 3 of that generation of music...Black Sabbath and The Who being the other 2.
This song has always been one of my favorites from Zep.
Epic.

Tomas Kalnoky AKA "Toh Kay"
Wikipedia

I've loved his music ever since I first heard one of his songs... and I haven't found a song of his that I'm not fond of at all. They're all great.

First of all, he's basically the lifeblood of the band Streetlight Manifesto, which is easily one of my most favorite bands of all time. It's probably where he's most well known since he's spent most of his musical career with them and they're the most "mainstream" (if you can even call it that) of his endeavors. Prior to that he was in the band Catch 22 and another small band in the mid-90's. I don't know much about the earlier band, but Catch 22 and Streetlight Manifesto are both considered Ska-Punk.

Here's probably my favorite Streetlight Manifesto song(s) [It's technically 2 songs back-to-back]:


Next up, he's been going solo as Toh Kay, where he mostly releases accoustic versions of Streetlight Manifesto Songs. These could actually be considered the original songs since he writes them in the first place, and they're probably what he comes up with on his own before adapting it to the multiple instruments and more aggressive tone in Streetlight Manifesto. This has gotten him in legal trouble with the record label Victory Records, as they claim those songs are their property under the Streetlight Manifesto records they have produced.

Just to put that a little more simple and easier to understand: He's been sued for copying his own songs. Yep. That's a thing, and it's very sad.

On April 30th, 2013 he released an album, "The Hands That Thieve" under the Streetlight Manifesto name:


I like this album a lot, but...

The same day, he also released an album under his solo name, Toh Kay, called "The Hand That Thieves" which is essentially an acoustic version of the album:


... I LOVE this version. I like it a lot better than the Streetlight Manifesto version.

Finally, there is his side-project called Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, or B.O.T.A.R. I don't believe he's written and recorded many songs with them, but their sound is somewhere in between that of Toh Kay and Streetlight Manifesto, and it's amazing:


Hope some of you find his work enjoyable.


EDIT: Just read some news from April 19th that Streetlight Manifesto and Victory records settled. Victory sold the rights to the songs to Streetlight Manifesto and ended their contract. Streetlight Manifesto has now started their own record label encompassing Toh Kay and B.O.T.A.R. as well, without having to deal with anyone else telling them what to do. Hopefully this is the creative license that Tomas Kalnoky was in need of.

"The wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45 True Death: 400 Horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night This is Black Sunshine"

Finally nothing moves. High noon. Black top rolling below the asphalt drive A concrete fascination scraping the edge of nothing This is Black Sunshine"


Holy Crap I listened to that song a few hours ago, after that I digged through the ditches and burned through the witches and slammed into the back of your Dragula. Sorry about that, we'll exchange insurance details at Thunderkiss65@zombie.com

Agree! While I love many of the other bands listed here, the question was what band "mystifies" you? Tool's music/lyrics were the first that really drove me to research their meaning, because something in the music drove me to want to know...

Geez, with all you guys saying Tool (agree) and the Led, I thought one of you would have posted this tool track covering No Quarter.



Gee, for me it's too hard to pick one band.... I'm a cheating pleb, so I will say Tool (live were awesome), Radiohead (so many album masterpieces), Elbow (Guy's tone of voice and just a great band low on the "look at me play your face orf" stuff, they just know what a moving piece of music is supposed to be.


And, further cheating here - watch this short film/awesome song. (may be really confronting for some who struggle with drug use/abuse)
