Arab Strap are on Chemikal, the label started by the Delgados.

So are Aereogramme and Mogwai.

Aereogramme are very good. Kinda weird, though, because he sings really softly but then starts screaming at the end of some songs.

Mogwai are excellent instrumental music, and their song with Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals, "Dial: Revenge" is absolutely gorgeous.

These are all great bands, especially Specials, Madness, Tim Finn & Prefab Sprout. Their album "Jordan The Comback" is amazing. Produced by none other than Thomas "She Blinded Me With Science" Dolby.

How can you possibly want to get into them if you haven't heard anything by them? Unless its to look cool?

Har har betty.

I got into Mogwai by accident and am fairly impressed. There are numerous bands that I hear endless good things about, and haven't heard one thing from, and would like to one day.
I'm getting there though. I'm on the way to discovering (rather late compared to some) Sigur Ros, GY!BE or however you abbreviate it, one day I will listen to Radiohead even if its to prove to myself they actually exist. Also finally hearing some JSBE.

There's more. But I take so long to get into unchartered territory.

'getting into them' doesn't necessarily imply becoming a fan betty staright off. i see it as getting to know them so you can actually find out if you like them or not.
