Santigold is awesome:
It is awesome but I like the darkness of MiM.
Really starting to get into Supergrass. I always thought they were a cheesy brit-pop on the back of "Alright" band but man they're great. I actually like "Alright" a lot now too.
I also d/l the rest of Ride's discography. Awesome shit.
Supergrass had some amazing stuff in fairness. Liked them a lot.
@maco @Fiat Cunto You guys might like this, I don't know if you know it already, if you do then ignore me. I can't stop dancing to it, yes it's pop bullshit, but still....
The Doors are one of the greatest bands of all-time. That might seem obvious to some people, but a lot of people just see The Doors as Jim Morrison's band who had a few great songs....so wrong....
@dualtamac Yeah I heard it awhile back, really like it Still not as good as Ai Se Tu Pego though
I'm listening to their debut album right now.
So do you mean The Doors with Morrison or their whole career even after his death?
Good question that, I mean with Morrison.
I think they've definitely got a shout then. Their work with him was pretty much flawless for the most part. Have you heard much of their stuff post-Morrison?
No, but I must check it out.
Neither have I, I'll need to have a listen one day. I'm listening to L.A. Woman at the moment; you've got me on a Doors kick. Great stuff.
Sometimes at work I listen to the full discography with Morrison and I'm just in heaven.
Living the dream.
I have like 9 Doors posters and a giant Jim Morrison tapestry in my room. I am the lizard king reincarnate.
Just on the subject of best bands ever, I've been thinking lately that Rage Against The Machine are probably one of the most underrated bands when it comes to those discussions. They burst onto the scene with a great debut album, followed it up with a masterpiece in Evil Empire, then capped it all off with another great album and then they were gone (apart from that covers album and a live album they put out). They were pioneers of the fusion between rock, funk and hip-hop and remain one of the few bands to make it work as well as they did. As far as musicianship goes there weren't many bands who could match them in their generation. The impact they had was pretty massive, they created a groundswell of political awareness in the youth of that generation not unlike bands of yesteryear did back in the 60s or whatever.
So in a nutshell: they came, produced a flawless body of work and out of this world live shows; they had a dynamic front man and high level musicians; and they changed the way people thought about the world.
Love these guys:
RE: Greatest bands of all-time. Maybe deserves it's own thread @Parksey10 ?
