    I'm in a band called Burnt Fur.

    Think New Wave, Industrial, No Wave, and Sonic Youth. Think New Order, Human League, the Cure, Joy Division, Front 242, B-52's, Blondie, and Sonic Youth.

    I fricken love it.
    I play bass on most tracks, and drum pads on a few.
    We've also got a guy mainly on guitar, with a bit of bass and drum.
    And another guy who plays our keyboards and samples, with a touch of drums.

    You can listen to it here on myspace, or here on facebook
    We're also up on iTunes

    @Alex Martin:

    Bohren & der Club of Gore apparently label themselves as "death jazz", which is fair enough, I suppose. It's no wonder they've played live only once or so, as playing that goddamn SLOWLY is incredibly difficult.

    In the same vein I'd toss in a recommendation for Supersilent. More of an improv thing, but in the same region of cheerfulness as Bohren.

    stumbling monks. elektro sometimes, live instruments sometimes, sometimes both. i'm not so good at describing my own music so just check some stuff out here. 5 out of a million recordings, all different formats, there will never be a real album. i am working on a stumbling monks comic strip collection, about days & nights in the lives of monks in the slums. i will be posting some of them on comicspace.com soon as i get around to it.

    My band is Grok. You can listen to our work on:

    Myspace
    Facebook
    Website

    The theory behind the band is: we have no songs. Every song is played once and once only- the album just happens to be one session that we recorded and mixed. It's extremely organic, and, whether you like it or no, it certainly doesn't sound like anything else.

    I have a new band (as in almost two months old), Decibel. The only music we have online at the moment is on myspace at http://www.myspace.com/decibeltribe. We use a lot of noise and electronic elements in our songs to create something new for your ears. I'm more excited about this band than any band I've worked on.

    @Destructor: Grok as in heinleinian Grokking? Your band's name fits its concept, then.

    hey dont know much of what to say i play guitar, sing, and dabble on bass (not as much bass as i would like) i like all sorts of different music but i usualy am playing anything from acoustic to metal to old school punk (the dead kennedys and such) me and my friend shane are trying to get a band together called the neighborhood junkies (dont worry we're not realy junkies its more of an ironic name)

    @Destructor. Mate, had a listen to your band's tunes - very cool man! I like the theory behind it too, I am in a similar project which makes live/free ambient music in a similar way, but mate, your band are tight! Good Work, takes a lot to improvise together like that.

    Can I ask, do you overdub your recordings though? How are your vocal harmonies achieved or are they pre-written?

    I'm the fiddler and a singer in Trenchmouth. I've linked to our myspace on a Saturday Night Open Mic thread. Listening to these tracks, I've gotten more and more dissatisfied, but they're what we have. Pretty good folk music under bad mixing. More to come, hopefully.

    thats not the trenchmouth i was expecting- there was another one from chicago who was decently big, toured a lot and now their drummer is on saturday night live.

    @joe.distort: Yah, there was a punk-ish Trenchmouth in the 90s from Chicago. None of us had heard of them before we named the band, and one of our members actually had trench mouth, so we figure we've got cred. I'm kind of conflicted on the name after learning of them, exactly because of confusion like yours, but I think we're the only extant band named Trenchmouth, so I deal with my conflict.

    They play live a lot, but more in and about mainland Europe. Them coming to England is a rarity, and one I'm sure that countless cats will want to profit from. Tickets'll be selling quick. Too few people appreciate slow melodic music these days, they want something fast to sing a long too, Big Brother and other things for assholes with no attention spans.

    I used to work with Chris Dezutter of Trenchmouth in Chicago. they are actually a really great band. their third album is the best in my opinion. The singer is in a new band called the Eternals, and the drummer (I think) was on Saturday Night Live for a while. He played Frondi and I guess does the Barrack Obama impersonations.

    Anyway, can you call yourself something like Trenchmouth UK? Or Trenchmouth CAN? Or howabout: The Drummer's Got Trenchmouth!

    Eh, keep the name, rock out and let 'em sue you when you become famous. That's how it's supposed to be done.

    yeah, keep the name definitely- if they really were punxes, they wouldnt care.

    i have been playing the saxophone since the late 60's. played in lots of bands over the years. i 've played in jazz,rock,experimental,jam,and blues bands. the last band i was in was called dysfunktion junktion. i love experimenting with electronics to get new and different sounds on the sax. years ago i used to play through an echoplex. lately i have been playing through an amp put out by vox called the valvetronix. it not only has about a dozen effects but a duplicates the sound of several amps from the 50's to present day amps. it has some great tube amp tones. i have been taking a break from the band scene to get my shit together in other areas of my life. i love what miles davis said. "when words fail music speaks.

    I do various electronic stuff, a lot of it with vocals. There's a Myspace and even a webpage displaying my odd beershaped self, Janet Jackson 1993-style (so don't say you weren't warned). I released some stuff in Berlin under a different name (Tetsuo) not too long ago, but I'm binning that project for various reasons (one of which: there were already, like, six Tetsuo's out there). Right now, this remix for Palace of Pleasure is what's happening. It's free to spread, btw. Hey-o.

    Wow, this has been going for a while. Well, I used to play drums (and still would if I could afford a set), and according to my old voice teacher I'm a very talented singer. If I had the gall to start a band I'd call it Tar Babies, because when I heard that in a Native American creation myth I laughed heartily.

    In any case, my best friend is starting up a band called Alias Punch, and I honestly think that they're very good, or at least have a lot of potential. Their influences are Bob Dylan, Talking Heads, Daniel Johnston, things like that, so I thought some of you might enjoy them. (Is it all right if I'm not part of the band to post this?) Ack. Now let's see if my impaired skills with technology allow me to show you.

    My current band, Sunday NIght Blackout, is going on tour in late August, doing the southwest USA. We're a rock band.
    SNB

    My previous band, Abraham Lincoln Killing Machine, is reuniting for at least one show. We're an offensive hardcore punk band. I wish I'd come up with that name but it was the guitarist who masterminded the whole thing.
    ALKM

    My middle-school band, the Grubmutts, "reunites" and records new songs whenever we get bored/drunk. We're just offensively stupid for the sake of being stupid.
    Grubmutts

    There were a couple of hardcore bands in there too. Spitting Teeth(good) and Nuclear Barbeque(terrible.)
