Best new group you've found or been turned on to lately...

Post by Monkeyfist » Tue Jul 20, 2004 1:05 pm

I just got a copy of Porterhouse Quintets: Thumbs Up Little Buddy.
They are as Bear would say Wangtacular! Blazing tight funk and groove. If you get a chance check em' out!

I just started listening to this band called Ruma Sakit. Crazy insturmental rock. They make my eyes bleed and wiener shoot fire... In a good way.

Well the best would be Blonde Redhead. They're not new, but pretty new to me.

Relistening to Bowie again, i.e. Hunky Dory and Heroes. Glorious. Also T. Rex's Electric Warrior. I knew it was something from "Mambo Sun"...

Arbouretum

I saw them open for Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and bought the CD that night. I haven't bought the opening band's CD in years.

I can't remember the last time I bought the opener CD. I should do that more often just on principal. Unless they totally blow ass of course.

It's been out for a while and quite obvious, but the Franz Ferdinand stuff is sounding pretty cool to me.
