Sigur Ros

Best Music Video Ever =

Don't bother trying to translate the lyrics, it's in "Hopelandish" and it's made up.

For those into Poppy sounding math rock you probably already know about Fall of Troy... if not they're worth a listen.

Happy listening.

I like your style, alot....

along with those 3 I must say Fu Manchu, they are a really good stoner rock band, great fuzzed out sludgey guitar play there, try thinking out loud and squash that fly from them its what got me hooked.

The Dresden Dolls- a punk cabaret duo. Only drums and piano,bf/gf female singer

The Rifles
Very good new indie rock band. Sound a bit like The Smiths but faster.

The Paddingtons
Quality band from the current crop of post-Libertines indie-punk.

Glasgow band following in the Franz footsteps. My tip for mainstream success this summer.

*Mike Patton --> see Fantomas, Dillenger Escape Plan, Mr.Bungle, Faith No More

*Boards of Canada --> damn good IDM

I can't add anything to that other than "Excellent Choices". I was going to do my own post but all the bands I was going to mention are right there.

There is Aphex Twin....well known, but a lot of people think Windowlicker and Come to Daddy is the only style he does. Not true, pick up some of his older work or his "Ambient" stuff, it's nearly all amazing.

Another good band that are sadly no longer around - Earthtone9. Had some amazing songs, I don't know what category to put them in, they are loud, and have great riffs. Try them!

Aberfeldy - Scottish band that plays poppy acoustic stuff. Check out their album Young Forever, it's pretty damn good.

Acoustic Ladyland/Polar Bear - Both jazz bands, one more punk than the other. They share most of their musicians as they're part of the f-ire collective. Seb Rochford is a bloody awesome dummer. Check out 'Iggy' on Last Chance disco.

Archie Bronson Outfit - Quite a dirty sounding band. 2 cool albums out now.

Cats and cats and cats - Awesomely random. A little uni band at the mo.

dios - Like Grandaddy, Great 1st album. Most beautiful swearing ever in 'You'll get yours' Ruined for me by worst gig I've ever been too. Annoying when you've waited 2-3 years to see 'em.

Dirtbombs 2 drummers and 2 bassists. See them live!!!

Ella Guru Named After Captain Beefheart song! Very quiet music. Park Lake speakers appeared on mtv2 now and then. more then than now as it happens.

The Go Detroit garage rock band. Jack White was in them for a bit.

Micah P. Hinson Awesomely dark voice.

Son Volt The other half of Uncle Tupelo that didn't become Wilco

and I think I'm done.

Nice one! I love the Dirtbombs, their sound is fantastic. Underdog gets an outing nearly every day on my stereo. Any idea when they're touring the UK next?

I'm not sure. Last time they were over here was about a year ago. 20th June if I remember correctly I saw them at 93ft East in London. Their site says all their next few gigs are in America

One of my all time favortie bands, who I consider the most underrated group of the 90's most peopl ehave never even heard of. I found them by reading an article in a music magazine (I can't remember which) called "The Five Most Important Albums of the 90's. The list included

Radiohead - OK Computer
Beastie Boys - Pauls Botique
Dr. Dre - The Chronic
Nirvana - Nevermind
Neutral Milk Hotel - An Aeroplane Over the Sea

I loved the first four albums, but had never heard of the fifth. So I picked it up, and HOLY CRAP! This album blew my mind. It's the CD that most indie rock bands today try to rip off (The Decemberists, Bright Eyes, etc.) and is absolutely amazing. Aparently it's a concept album about the Holocaust, and is a strange micture of folk music with rock, and really weird instrumentations (including a saw at one point).

Sadly, the band is no more. The lead singer, Jeff Mangum, couldn't handle even the small amount of fame he was getting, so he quit making music and joined the circus. I wish I was kidding when I said that, but if you hear the music, it makes a strange kind of sense.

So, in conclusion, everyone should but this CD, become bizzare fanatics, and die happy but silly deaths.

Neutral Milk Hotel!!!

Towers of London......they are punk meets glam. if you like the sex pistols etc you will like these..... in fact i almost thought it was the pistols.

Hope of the States..... these are pretty good. deep lyrics and a conscience.

Everybody has their own favorites, but my vote for the most criminally underappreciated band ever is The Rainmakers. They are, or more accurately were, a jangly midwestern rock band from Kansas City, led by one of the greatest songrwriters to ever grace us with his words - Bob Walkenhorst. They were popular in the KC area, and, for whatever reason, in Finland, but they just never quite caught on anywhere else. I guess that Bob still plays here and there, but the band appears to be done. Bob's a simply tremendous lyricist and a helluva singer and the band was tight and fun.

Anything by Mike Patton is good

The Dillinger Escape Plan
Mr. Bungle
Faith No More

The Dillinger Escape Plan - "Unretrofied" (watch the video)

Other good bands:

Porno For Pyros
Jane's Addiction
Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band

+ anything by Les Claypool. I.e. "Colonel Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade"

Mendeed are an awesome band from the UK. I saw them last year when they supported Cradle of Filth. They're like, metal, mixed with abit of Maiden-style solo's, mixed with hardcore. They're signed to Nuclear Blast Records, check 'em out.
