I love it, it rocks One could only imagine what their second effort would have been like.

Saw them open for The Killers and I really dug them. They have a definite U2 vibe as well, especially on the songs Arms of Love and The Teardrop Explodes. They even did a cover of All I Want is You.

Paul Colman Trio. Ozzie Christian Rock Band, now broken up, but boy was their music great. www.myspace.com/paulcolman

The Darlow Show. WA band, performed at our school the other week and played a song called Pride (In the Name of Love). www.myspace.com/thedarlowshow

Alibi. My cousin's band. Very good sound, though I don't think they'll make it very far unfortunately. www.myspace.com/alibitheband

Evermore. NZ band who hit it big after lending songs to The OC. Great sound. www.myspace.com/evermore (I presume)

You can find songs from Evermore, PC3 and Alibi on my Space Moon/Mini-Album games.

LIFTER PULLER: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifter_Puller

The best band in history of which you've never heard. The Hold Steady before The Hold Steady, basically--but with vaguely post-post-new-wave/pre-new-new-wave (rather than The Hold Steady's classic rock revivalist) riffs, a few keys, and a continuining, surprisingly dense narrative whose end is subtly given away in one of the first songs they ever recorded, only to come back and hit you like a bullet between the eyes, when you finally get to the last song on the last record..."The Flex and the Buff Result," from Fiestas + Fiascos. One of the greatest bands of all time. "Mission Viejo" is the best song Springsteen never managed to write. Unbelievable. Get introduced to Juanita, Katrina, Nightclub Dwight, The Eyepatch Guy, and the rest of the gang, and then thank me, when your life changes forever.


Karmella's Game: www.karmellasgame.com

www.myspace.com/karmellasgame

The Baltimore scene really is as rich and diverse as you've been made to believe. Great stuff is happening, over there.


Titanic Love Affair: www.myspace.com/titanicloveaffair

Jay Bennett's old band. Proof, too, of what a hack Jeff Tweedy really is.


The Ike Reilly Assassination: www.ikereilly.com

www.myspace.com/ikereilly

One of the best songwriters currently kicking around. His latest album, We Belong to the Staggering Evening, is one of the best I've heard all year, and easily his best, so far. I already tried to start a thread, but found myself reprimanded for being too enthusiastic. Whatever. He's worth it.


Chikita Violenta: www.chikitaviolenta.com

http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...endID=35636022

Fantastic Mexican band which recently hooked up with none other than Dave "I'm-The-Best-Active-Producer-Outside-of-the-Greater-Hip-Hop-Community" Newfeld to produce one of the year's finer records--the painfully-titled The Stars and Suns Sessions.


Zumpano: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zumpano

These cats are, of course, long-since gone, but that hardly makes them any less awesome. Before making solo records and fronting one of the world's five best bands, in The New Pornographers, A.C. Newman was kickin' ass and taking names with his homeboys, Zumpano. Great stuff.


By Divine Right: www.myspace.com/bydivineright

I guess that people probably know these dudes up in Canada, where they and everybody else help out in the BSS collective/commune, but mo'fuckers sure as shit don't know 'em, back in Chicago (nor does anybody from any other, non-Canada country, as far as I know). Fucking fantastic. "Stella Heart Ocean," from Good Morning, Beautiful, is everything the summer is supposed to sound like. ...And, now that I think about it, they got a shout-out in a New Pornographers song, from Electric Version. What's not to love, you know?

Oh, and don't forget about The Smithereens, who were once (before Zumpano got going) the best power-pop band in the universe. They've had better days, for sure, but Green Thoughts remains one of the better, hookier, repeatable-er albums of the late-'80s and early-'90s.

Post-grunge and alternative. They have very unqiue lyrics and sound. Please give them a chance and tell me what you think.

Oliver Mtukudzi, master Zimbabwean singer/songwriter, has one of the best bands I've seen.

I like a lot of bands from Peter Gabriel's Real World label, from Africa, China, India, Eastern Europe, etc. I'm sure most of them are pretty obscure.

Kinky Bosco - awesome band from Bloton, England, with a sounds that harks back to early Oasis and the Stone Roses, amazing vocals too..... myspace.com/kinkybosco

Motor Ace- sensational band from Melbourne, who had hits with Carry On, Keeping Secrets and Death Defy. Their underappreciated third and final album, Animal, released in 2005, is a bewdy....Best Aussie band in the past ten years without doubt. Don't think they have a myspace thing.

Heard of them in passing, here and there, but never actually heard them. I'll see what I can see. Melbourne has a really healthy music scene, these days; it's all kinds of thriving.
