...any Leica and the Cosmonauts.


Finnish surf music.


Just heard 'em interviewed on public radio yesterday.... they're playing some gigs in New York this week. Fun, quirky stuff.

I will be buying a CD or two shortly and I'll let y'all know.

I have downloaded one of their tracks once

I think it was the same song that made Dick Dale 'famous' again when it was played in Pulp Fiction

Nope don't have any of that, but I have another one that I'd be shocked (pleasantly, of course!) if anyone had, or had even heard of (other than in my posts). It is Isidore, which is a collaboration between Steve Kilbey of The Church and Jeffery Cain of the late Remy Zero. SK wrote the lyrics and does the singing (his brother John does the backing vocals) and JC wrote the music (former RZ mates G. Slay and C. Lemoyne help out on drums and bass, respectively). It's a stunningly beautiful album... I really think it's some of the best work SK has ever done.

I thought the band was called "laika and the Cosmonauts"
so that could also be why I never found another track of them

I've found a lot of my now favorite music by perusing music message boards and checking out interesting sounding music. Occasionally there are complete duds, sure, but when you get one that you love -- what a great feeling!
