    @Ian Holloway

    I love the WFMU live music archive. I was listening to some of their stuff last night from the ATP New York Event in September this year, the one with Sunn O))) and Boris. I rally love the Beak> live set.

    @Prof Structure, yaaaaaaaaaaa Liberationnnnnnnnn. "Ray-O-Graph" is like morphine to me.

    @icelandbob, suggestions noted.

    @Allana, Timbo, I'm kind of digging the Menomena name. It's more of a problem when I try and tell people to listen to that band and they ask me to repeat their name. More than twice. And @Allana, I actually really love some of the lyrics on this album. Matter of taste I suppose?

    I can't stop listening to Made Out of Babies. It's really starting to be a problem. I'm super un-balanced sounding now. Whoops!

    As for music that isn't by artists whose name start with M, here's some Josh Ritter.

    It's been a weird week, music-wise. I've got kind of a new friend who doesn't know a lot of music yet, so I've been skipping across genres and listening to a lot of different stuff to up the exposure level. Cross-dosing to increase the chances of infection. :)

    VNV Nation - Empires and Judgement
    Covenant - Sequencer
    Melechesh - Epigenesis
    Gaslight Anthem - All 3 albums, since I've been learning to play a bunch of their songs
    Red 40 - Discography (It's weird to think Ben Nichols ever sounded so young)
    Gutter Twins - Saturnalia
    Twilight Singers - Blackberry Belle and Powder Burns
    Dear Landlord - Dream homes
    Streetlight Manifesto - Everything Goes Numb
    Kylesa - Spiral Shadow

    I got Killing Joke's Absolute Dissent yesterday and it's a storming album!
    It came with an additional disc; Absolute Respect, a collection of other bands covering KJ tracks. It features a wonderful cover of Pssyche by Nouvelle Vague, and a remix of Democracy by NIN that doesn’t seem to contain a single note or sound from the original song, so I’m a bit confused as to how it’s a remix, or a cover- it is rather good though.
    I think Killing Joke have aged particularly well. Jaz's voice has become increasingly inhuman with each album. It’s good that the original line-up is back together, just a shame that Paul Raven had to die before it happened.
    Sorry, that makes it sound like they had him killed him killed. They didn’t.
    They did record a tribute to him in The Raven King though, which is very moving, if you’re me. :)
    If you’ve ever liked Killing Joke, get this album, you won’t be disappointed.
    If you’ve never liked Killing Joke I can only assume that you haven’t heard them,
    or that there is something wrong with you. :)

    At moment I'm looking backwards, both artistically, literary, and musically.
    So, I've been listening to at lot of prog rock (Genesis, Rush, Supertramp), techno, rave, Jazz and this little German rock group I've just discovered.....

    This week has been all about Sneaker Pimps, /Becoming X/.

    With some old-school Chemical Bros, other similar stuff from '91-95 thrown in.

    Maybe I'm just trying to relive the early, heady days of the Clinton administration. "Smack My Bitch Up" may sneak its way in, too.
    Because I really, really wish it was the early days of the 90's again. with the Long Boom in front of us, and Reagan behind us.

    @Allana & Dorkmuffin - I'm listening to Menomena's Myspace offerings on my laptop and can't make out the lyrics so well (partly cos I've got one ear on the incoming results of the canadian mayoral elections) but I quite like it so far. And I note they;re at my favourite music venue on Dec 4th when I should be back in the Land of the Grand Crapoalition so maybe I'll go check it out.
    Also been listening to The Jezebels, out of kangaroo country, who are down at the Horseshoe Tavern tomorrow with Nomadic Sound Division so I'm definitely going to make an effort to go to that.

    Catherine Christer Hennix - The Electric Harpsichord (for those who don't know, she experiments with drone based music, this time with keyboards and sine waves, in the vein of LaMonte young)

    Iannis Xenakis - Electronic Music

    @ ales_kot - Slint are just absolutely superb, the finest of proto-grunge / mathrock bands. Very few heirs to that throne worthy of mention, but Spiderland just hasn't dated at all.

    Cougar fill a similar spot in my heart, but they're strictly non-vocal, and have electronic influences.
