Local bands....

Tell me about them before they are famous

Minneapolis has a great scene, and I am just discovering a local scene here in Central Illinois.


Absinthe Blind (shoegazers from the US )

more later....

back for Minneapolis bands....

Manplanet space rock - devo, queen, Ziggy Stardust (fun band)
Askeleton - Think Interpol, but even more New Orderish
Faux Jean - retro sixties/eighties. All dress in suits - very hip sound too
Astronaut Wife - Punk/rockabilly/spacey
Hawaii Show - Pure humor. One guy recorded a whole bunch of songs that a cast of about ten lipsynch to.

disaster 116 (maybe they might be good by the time they get to high school)
no intention
justice league (they REALLY suck)
i think quit to win is local...they're ok but they need a new singer
sleeping with your sister
bubba's fat friend

and then there are at least 3 other local bands that suck that i forgot the names of

There nothing better than having a few brews at the bar while watching some sucky local band try to play. That's Entertainment!

the gravel pit (i think they're from connecticut, actually)

collapse into reason (i'm not sure if they broke up or not)

chain fall

the damaged (they're a not so bad punk/hardcore band)

edgar (i HOPE they broke up, they probably didn't though)

adavis

frick (they depress me. they used to be good, they got a new singer and now they sound like blink 182)

big ugly wrench (i'm not sure if they're still around, they were pretty good...and they do a wierd creedence clearwater revival)

there's unconfortable silence and natural descent. i'm not sure if eityher of them are still around, the last i've heard of them was at least a year ago now...and i think unconfortable silence was/is from somewhere in vermont, near brattleboro...

there used to be a good local band called shoot the dancing bear, but they broke up about 5 years ago

and there was the maggies, who were good, but i don't know if they're still around (i don't think they are)

there's the fawns and spanish for hitchhiking, neither of which i've actually heard. they both include people from school for the dead, so i've heard of them that way. and i'm not sure if the pelicans are a local band or not, but they're good same with lofine and the figments (well, those last two are ok, not great....the pelicans have a song that has an intro that reminds me of "angel of harlem" but it took me months to realise what it sounded like)...
