Cult band?! Maybe in Australia, but they've always been huge here.

Perhaps ravenette was commenting more on the...I dunno, reputation or illusion that Depeche Mode fans get here. It's not good or bad, just an occasional impression they get.

Talking Heads
Boom Crash Opera. Relive this band, you skips. Go on.
I dunno...Same as everyone else really.

Where's "here"?

If it's somewhere in Germany or L.A. etc.. I understand.

They're by no means "mainstream" here in Oz though.

Well, I'm from Ohio (rural Ohio at that) and I figure everyone at least knows of Depeche Mode. Then again I also thought everyone had at least heard of The Church too, and I've found I was sadly mistaken. I guess "well-known" depends on where you live and your circle of friends. Hell, I still have no clue who Robbie Williams is, but in some areas apparently he's huge (but considering the comments about him, not knowing him is no great loss ).

New Model Army, for more than 25 years they think the world is a shitty place and happy to sing about that. Ofcourse it is fun to sing along on the concerts they give,...

(Sullivan/Heaton/Nelson) 1992

Today, as you listen to this song
Another 394,000 children were born into this world
They break like waves of hunger and desire upon these eroded shores
Carrying the curses of history and a history yet unwritten
The oil burns in thick black columns, the buzz saws echo through the forest floor
They shout give us our fair share, give us justice
Here comes the war

On a grey morning to the south of here
Two young men in makeshift uniforms peer into the misty light
And figures dart behind the trees
As a snap of rifle rounds echoes out across the fields
They hardly know their sacred mother tongue but they know their duty
To defend the flag hanging limp and bloody above the village church
While a thousand miles away, in a warehouse complex down by the river,
Young money men play paintball games
Here comes the war - put out the lights on the Age of Reason

So blow out the candle and tell us another of those great stories,
the ones about serial killers. Let dreams flow into savage times.
Do you hear the sirens scream across the city?
We've had three hot nights in succession - the riot season is here again
Dear Lord, lead us back into the Valley of the Shadow of Death,
Here comes the war. Did you think we were born in peaceful times?

Faster, faster, like a whirling dervish spinning round
Faster, faster, until the Centre cannot Hold
You screamed give us Liberty or give us Death
Now you've got both, what do you want next ?
Here comes the war - put out the lights on the Age of Reason.

Right now, I am listening to: Razorlight and White Stripes. I am also a huge Live fan and am looking forward to their concert here in Sept.

if it wasn't for U2 then ApologetiX would be my favorite band, probably.
Missed seeing them in concert a few weeks ago. DANG!

My love is and ever will be STING , but I don't think so that he has to be introduced to anyone. I also love The Police, of course and a few more, but there's a not-too-well-known band, BrainStorm I would like to introduce to you.

I've heard them first at the REM tour in Budapest, where they were the supporting band and they were really good, the crowd seemed to enjoy their music very much. So here's a little story about them from Baltic Times:

"The extraordinary story of BrainStorm will no doubt be recorded in the annals of Latvian history with the sort of fanfare typically reserved for national heroes.

Tales will be recounted about the five young men from Jelgava who made catchy, quirky pop music with heart-warming lyrics and went on to become the country’s most successful pop group. Legends will tell how the country adored them and they, in return, whether they were performing at Eurovision or opening for the Rolling Stones, proudly flew the flag for Latvia at every performance.

This group has always sought bigger things than sell-out concerts at Skonto Stadium or a “Best Group of the Year” prize at the Latvian Music Awards. Prata Vetra, as they are known in Latvian, want to make it in Europe. They are looking to be taken seriously by a wider audience.

Unpretentious and musically fluid, BrainStorm is a uniquely Latvian band. With their new album “Four Shores the group has returned to a more mainstream sound."

If you ever get a chance to listen to their music, please don't miss the opportunity and enjoy!

You know another band who I'd like to get more into? XTC. I really like what I've heard by them so far ("King For A Day".... What a great song). I'm gonna keep an eye out for their CDs and that when I'm in a music store.
