    well what kind of stuff are you into?

    hard, soft, classical, poppy (but not pop), etc?

    i could recommend many hardcore/punk/indie rock bands.

    I accidentally my whole location.

    I'll pretty much listen to anything, but I'm really into acid jazz and drum&bass type of music at the moment.

    I listen to a bunch of other stuff too, but that just seems to fit my mood better I guess.

    Nu-Metal bands like ünloco, drowning pool, and others are great.

    My tastes are eclectic in the extreme...

    My current playlists run the gamut from Audioslave to Bobby McFerrin to George Winston to Remy Zero to James Taylor to Frank Sinatra to Björk to Train...I could keep going...

    I'll go for pretty much anything but Country.:)

    Hoho. I was gonna ask if you had heard of them edvnoiw. Damn amazing group!!

    What kind of Drum&Bass are you into???
    We have a big Drum and Base scene down here.
    Have you heard of Concord Dawn, Paradigm, Shapeshifter, Pitch Black. I can give you names of tracks to download for a taste test.
    They are all quite different sounding drum and base bands, I think it's Paradigm that is a live drum and base act (might be Shapeshifter) both great bands to see live.

    I accidentally my whole location.
    I used to have digital cable with some killer music stations on it, that's how I heard of them.
    Since I have a slow internet connection and almost no extra money to spend, most of their tracks that I have are MP3'd remixes (damn good ones)

    What I did in the meantime though was write down all the good artists I heard on a piece of paper (up to two pages already) so if I can find it I'll tell ya.

    All up in your bidness
    Only one of you mentioned the Beatles. You bastards. The Beatles get the same number of votes as James Mother****ing Taylor? What is wrong with this picture? I remember the days when music actually meant something. Nowadays it's all this "Man, you gotta check out this new band called Topsoil Onion Speaker Cable, they're like a mix of industrial urban speed techno noise with a drop of alt country and a touch of ambient and hardcore ska & punk, they're ****ing awesome!!!!!!!!" ****e. And there's no "You have to listen to this because it's good." It's all "You have to listen to this because it will make you cool." What the hell happened?

    get the new Sigur Ros album Howard, its just called ( )
    and the new Beth Gibbons solo is incredible, though it is an import release if your in the US like myself. Also the latest Black Heart Procession is rather amazing.

    oh and alex ant, he said new music my friend, im sure if he hasnt heard of the beatles by now, well........
