Other --------heads?

I love radiohead.

i also love portishead.

can anyone here recommend other bands in the same musical vein?

i like sigur ros, now, too. i have been told however there is no "head" in their name.

I was going to say Motorhead...but, no...slightly different music (so i've heard!).

There's the Dallas band Bedhead (go here for review of latest: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record...de-novo.shtml)

Of course, there's Spearhead, but they're reggae, so not like Radiohead (unless Radiohead's "head"ed in that direction on the next album).

Or there's the Christian-emo band Blenderhead (let's not even go there).

And there's Blonde Redhead, but no, not in the vein of Radiohead or Portishead.

There's the Montreal-based Drumhead: described as "minimalist rhythm funk."

Plus there's godheadSilo, but i think they're like rap-metal.

Also, the Boxhead Ensemble...avant-garde baroqueness.

Finally, there's Headrillaz, whose debut album was produced by Howie B. Not very good stuff, i don't think.

Check them all out at my fav music web-site: pitchforkmedia.com

I know an excellent band from the Phillipines called Eraserheads. They make Beatleish/Fountains of Wayne sounding music. Catchy and fun and feelgood. One of the more polished English-singing bands in Southeast Asia.

It's Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Bands that are like Radiohead? Perhaps Muse. Mercury Rev. Aphex Twin is sorta Kid A-ish. Sparklehorse and Smashing Pumpkins are a bit of a stretch but they are great bands as well...

Clinic, Doves, and Elbow are sort of Radioheadish.

And Massive Attack is sort of Portisheadish.
Oh, and Air is kind of Radioheadish.
