  • Awesome bands i've been forgetting to listen to for possibly years

    Gen 22 2007, 17:27

    I've been slacking on listening to certain bands i've heard good things about or heard one song that really grabbed my attention. this is what i've recently got:

    Pink
    I bought the vinyl when it was released, and broke my turntable the next day or so. Finally downloaded it. Not what i was expecting, really good stuff

    Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
    Once again, got it when it was released, and somehow forgot to listen. seeing it pop-up on a bunch of "best of 2006" articles i listened, and it was one of the best

    Mono
    Just simply ignored this band for no reason for years!
    good stuff, reminds me a lot of mogwai or maybe red sparrowes and pelican



    Jackie O Motherfucker
    I'd heard quite a bit from this band playing on the stereo in the other room when i was at someone's house kinda thing. Way more laid-back than i was expecting. Good shite!

    Throbbing Gristle
    heard about this band for years. Wasn't so impressed, but maybe the hype around them turned me off when it wasn't too special

    DNA
    I have excuse! Was too busy listening to ikue mori's solo work. Awesome band though!

    Shitmat
    I'm not too big on mash-up, so i took my time getting this. he's a cool quirky guy

  • Grr!

    Ott 17 2006, 3:16

    Last.fm isn't tracking my stuff, and i can't even reach the plugin settings.
    And it recommended me Bright Eyes The White Stripes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    what does


    have anything to do with those bands? and who hasn't heard them yet?

    The only thing really good they recommended is Air which is on my charts and i've loved for years and still doesn't fit in with what i listened to at all

    and For Hero: For Fool is simply awesome.
    I also bought Vrresto and Journal For People with DVD, but left it in a friends car and haven't gotten to it yet. :(

    sorry, i've cooled down. does anyone else find it curious that out of all the bands i named the White stripes is the only one without a pic?

    Rainer Maria - Life of Leisure

    Life was leisure, learning French words
    And staying in white rooms without any style
    Mailing letters, and taking pictures
    We put each other's in a drawer for awhile

    But when will it all fall through
    What else can I tell you
    You just can't turn me on and off
    You just can't turn me on and off

    We're always drinking, and we're always playing
    And someone's always trying too hard
    So book the tickets, and please her parents
    She is lovely and he is really smart

    And when will it all fall through
    What else can I tell you
    You just can't turn me on and off
    You turn me on and off

    At first you believed it
    And now you don't believe
    At first you could see it
    Why dont you (believe)?

    The future's glowing out of focus
    Our talk is cheap but the phone bill is not
    And how can one word mean another
    And why am I staying up alone in the dark

    When will it all fall through
    What else can I tell you
    You just cant turn me on and off
    You turn me on and off

    When will it all fall through
    (Cause I know it will)
    What else can I tell you
    You just can't turn me on and off, on and off
    You turn me on and off
