don't ever let anyone tell you that
there is no emotion in electronica,
if you can find it, look for a very
hard to find APHEX track called #19
it is such a simple sounding song but beautiful never the less, it has the kind of sound i and maybe some of you like. that sound of total despare and seriousness, i don't like feeling depressed but sometimes that feeling in a song is totally comforting. anyways thanks jeff, keep up the great work.

did anyone read my thing up thare?^^^^^^^

RE: Favorite Bands | from JKDec 19 2001 - 21:15

I like timeless music, any genre. It could be heard 10 or 20, even more, years from now and have the same impact. I despise trendy or copycat music. Unfortunately thats all the major labels barrage us with. It must have emotive qualities. I like obliqueness, as long as it doesnt carry pretense. I guess some people just have a story, so they pick up a guitar and sing it, and if the stories good, theyll make it to a studio or record it themselves. Music these days is a poets or trubadors way of conveying a message from thier heart. You hear it, and if its touches you, part of his or her soul enters you. Nobody, or very few at least, buy a poetry book. Very few, generally the masses, buy fiction, or any books. So the movies, which are terrible, as most of us know, are quite similar to music. I guess its more convinent to buy a CD and listen to it for 30 minutes than to read a book of poems for days. I guess its more stimulating to the ear if its in auditory format as well, just like the visual for film... God forbid anyone read a book and use thier imagination...

Andy Partridge in a pear tree | from susan331Dec 19 2001 - 12:43

Yeah, but the thing about the whole E6 clique is that a.) everybody works with everybody else and b.) there's never a shortage of recorded output from them. So even if NMH don't work together again as NMH, odds are good they'll work together in some capacity or other.

I do know that Robert Schneider (Apples in Stereo) is working with Andy Partridge on some tunez that'll surface on his solo gig, Orchestre Fantastique, sometime in '02. I believe he's working on a new AIS album, too. For now, check out the soundtrack to the movie Dean Quixote, now out on spinART; it features OTC, the Minders, AIS, Orchestre Fantastique, etc. AIS also have a new EPO out called Let's Go; visit spinartrecords.com for the 411.

And-- sorry to depart on a sour note-- but the building that housed Pet Sounds Studio was torn down over the summer.

MTV News. Where you hear it...second!

RE: Favorite Bands | from adamDec 18 2001 - 17:01

thanks Susan. Crappy news.

RE: Favorite Bands | from susan331Dec 18 2001 - 16:46

Jeff Mangum (NMH) and Will Cullen Hart (Olivia Tremor Control) have started a project called The Circulatory System. They put out a self-titled full-length in August on Will's own Cloud Recordings imprint, (got the promo but still haven't had a chance to listen to it) and have followed up with a buncha CDRs.
As for NMH, according to elephant6.com, "Although all the members are still active with one another in other projects, it is unknown if they'll release any more albums as NMH. But there are are plans to release a NMH rarities/b-sides album eventually on the label Orange Twin."

MTV News. Where you hear it... first!

RE: Favorite Bands | from adamDec 18 2001 - 14:12

Death Cab for Cutie sound an awful lot like Built to Spill (which by itslef isn't so bad, e.g. Modest Mouse) but don't present any new good ideas in that style..... My two cents. What's going on with Neutral Milk Hotel? They going to release another record or what?

aereogramme (a story in white) has some interesting dynamics

the singing mechanic (it wouldn't be what it is) is a blast

unwed sailor (the faithful anchor) are stunning

the new spiritualized (let it come down) is over the top in a good way

hayden (skyscraper national park) is beautiful

i could go on and on...

RE: Favorite Bands | from eraserheadNov 16 2001 - 07:11

Anything from American Analog Set.

RE: Favorite Bands | from marcoNov 16 2001 - 04:39

You want the last word on Music? I limit myself to relatively recent stuff.
This is my list: Red Red Meat ("Bunny gets paid"), Pavement ("Crooked Rain... and Vowee Zowee"), Aerial M (the first one), Van Pelt (the first three or four songs from "Sultans of sentiment"), The Lapse, Bonnie Prince Billy ("Here see the darkness", is this the title?), Karate (first two records), Ida, Patrick Phelan, Swell, Gogogoairheart, Rex, Idaho of course (but I have got only two cds... it's so difficult to find them), Kepler, L'Altra, Black Heart Procession, first things from Built to Spill, Grandaddy... and many many more. I've been on line for too much time, I have to go!!

RE: Favorite Bands | from chris kennedyNov 02 2001 - 10:13

Check out Res (pronounced reese); she's an r&b singer from Philly. Great production; great songs. Writes her own lyrics. Some real substance to the work. I'm sure you're sick of the comparisons to RHP, but Kozelek's Rock and Roll Singer, covers of AC/DC songs from the Bon Scott era, is a very interesting cd. True alchemy. Also, Eitzel's Invisible Man might be his most solid solo effort. I wish
I had more, but I can't stop listening to Idaho. I'm driving everyone around me crazy. I stop people on the streets and make them put on my headphones; I ask them, "Have you heard of Idaho," and they look at me as if I've just declared my membership in a militia group or some cult of dubious origin. I suppose the cult part is right, but I really have been obsessed lately. Thanks for creating songs that articulate my strangest, most ineluctable moods.

RE: Favorite Bands | from FlintOct 29 2001 - 19:23

RE: Favorite Bands | from moneyMay 27 2001 - 13:17

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try
it. A little while back, I was browsing through
newsgroups, just like you are now,
and came across an article similar to this that said
you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with
only an initial investment of
$6.00! So I thought, 'Yeah right, this must be a
scam', but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept
reading. Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each
of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You
then place your own name and address in the bottom of
the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200
newsgroups.(There are thousands) No catch, that was
it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few
people first, I thought about trying it. I figured:
'what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,
right?' Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS
WHAT!?..within 7 days, I started getting money in the
mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but
the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I
made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had
made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I
had over $10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is
now my fourth week and I
: have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's
still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00,
and 6 stamps, I have spent more than that on the
lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most
importantly, WHY it works... Also, make sure you print
a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the
information off of it as you need it. I promise you
that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible
by doing something so easy!
: Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully!
(print it out or download it.) Follow the simple
directions and watch the money come in! It's easy.
It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus
postage) IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not
indecent; it is not illegal; and it is 99% no risk -
it really works! If all of the following instructions
are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends. PLEASE NOTE:
Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or
more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program
remains successful because of
the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please
continue its success by carefully adhering to the
instructions. You will now become part of the Mail
Order business. In this business your product is not
solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the
business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large
corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality
lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income
which is made from people like you and me asking to be
included in that list.
Here are the 4 easy steps to success:
STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the
following on each piece of paper 'PLEASE PUT ME ON
get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the
6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through
the envelope (to prevent
: thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6
envelopes and seal them. You should now have 6 sealed
envelopes, each with a piece of
: paper stating the above phrase, your name and
address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is
creating a service. You are requesting a legitimate
service and you are paying for
: it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a
little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I
checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that
it is indeed legal. Mail the 6 envelopes to the
following addresses:
: #1) David Freeman
: 11045 Harbour Springs Circle
: Boca Raton, Fl 33428
: #2)E. Benford
: 6656 Mableton Pwky APT. D4
: Mableton, GA.. 30126
: #3)T. Trimuel
: 1245 W. Chase
: Chicago, IL 60626
: #4) W. Hanafi
: 1801, 501-40th Ave, NW
: Calgary, AB, T2K 5S5
: Canada
: #5)M. Chiurazzi
: 7701 W . St John Rd APT. 2059
: Glendale, AZ, 85308
: #6 Michelle Leonard, 3523 Grand Caillou Rd.,Houma,
Louisiana, 70363
STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see
above, move the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes
4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.
STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep
this article as close to original as possible. Now,
post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to
24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the
more you post, the more money you
make! You won't get very much unless you post like
crazy. :) This is perfectly legal! If you have any
doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever
you need money, you can use it again, and again.
PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful
because of the honesty and integrity of the
participants and by their carefully adhering to the
directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money
that so many others have received will come your way.
be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to
reduce the risk of mail theft.)
So, as each post is downloaded and the directions
carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for
their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up
the list geometrically so that when your name reaches
the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an
opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the
first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you're in
business! ---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR HOW TO POST TO
Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter
to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the
beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and
select 'copy' from the edit menu. This will copy the
entire letter into the
computer's memory. Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad'
file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select
'paste'. This will paste a copy of the letter into
notepad so that you can add your name
to the list. Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a
.txt file. If you want to do your postings in
different settings, you'll always have this file to go
back to. Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer
and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards,
chat sites.) Step 5) Visit these message boards and
post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and
selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill in the
Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as
they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button.
You're done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you
have to do is jump to different newsgroups and post
away, after you get the hang of it, it will take about
30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE MORE
will begin receiving money from around the world
within days! You may eventually want to
rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you
will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can
invent a name to use, as long as the postman will
Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make
the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name at #5 and
only 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that
is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200
MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies
each, I will bring in an additional $125.00!

Idaho is my new fave after being seduced by chance encounters with "Glow" and "Alta Dena". ("Hearts of Palm" is on its way to me right now via the US Mail.)

I love a lot of the great bands that everyone knows, but I was happy to see some of my favorites listed above. In addition, I'd add: Archers of Loaf, Guided By Voices, Jeff Buckley, Pernice Brothers/Scud Mountain Boys, Television, Dolly Varden, Neil Finn, Spinanes, Afghan Whigs, Arab Strap. I'm starting to dig Low a lot, too. I see a lot of you like them. Great thread on this board.

RE: Favorite Bands | from kevinApr 09 2001 - 16:58

I'm hesitant to add anything to this already-too-long string, but I must agree with the Talk Talk recommendations. I just got their last two albums (Spirit of Eden & Laughing Stock) and they knocked me on my ass! Wow.

RE: Favorite Bands | from rob rowlesApr 08 2001 - 04:10

Yes Alex (several posts ago) late period Talk Talk is genius...see above! anything from Colour of Spring on is godlike. and the MH solo album. he won't release anything again though. he's retired from music to learn to play the oboe or something like that! Obstinate bastard that Hollis.

Ralphy, did you know the Chameleons have re-formed? www.thechameleons.com -i have seen them twice since it all happened - both in London England (i'm a brit of course)- new album June.

You are so lucky to see AMC. I arrived too late.. they split a few months after a friend introduced me.. damn!

AMC, Red House Painters, Idaho, Chameleons, Mojave3, Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, late Talk Talk, Pearlfishers, Divine Comedy(early),Belle & Sebastian, Ben Christophers
oh i can never remember as i like so many, i tend to buy at an album a week! So the list above is barely representative.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Ralphy on the North Shore of Lake SuperiorApr 07 2001 - 20:24

Stumpled on here somehow. What the heck is this site? My bands: Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, the Wipers, the Chameleons, For Against, Wire, Killing Joke, the Swans. When I'm driving my semi, I like to listen to bluegrass and sometimes metal from the 80s. I saw the American Music Club at the Uptown Bar in Minneapolis along time ago and everybody in the whole place was completely sloshed. I said hello to Mark Eitzel before they went on stage and I thought he was gonna puke on me, he was so drunk he could barely operate. AMC blew my mind. They got on stage all drunk, then proceeded to flawlessly roar thru a massive set of tunes. The loudest folkrock type band I ever seen live. Such beautifull records for such a loud live group. Cheers to whoever....

RE: Favorite Bands | from ...Jan 30 2001 - 23:11

For clarification purposes Hayden is from Toronto. He has also as of late worked in a traditional band sense with some members coming from the remants of the his Sonic Unyon pals Poledo. Just wanted to give the facts on one of my all time favorite artists.

RE: Favorite Bands | from RyanJan 29 2001 - 15:35

Whenever I peel myself away from "People like us should be stopped", I listen to HAYDEN. He's a great solo acoustic artist from Montreal. You can get a fairly unrepresentational taste of him on the Shanti Project Comp.
But look into his other albums. Also, look for a hidden Hayden video at the end of the "Tree's Lounge" movie on VHS. Can't wait to see you play again Jeff!!

RE: Favorite Bands | from eraserheadJan 09 2001 - 19:36

Music that i listen to alot would be;
Acetone, very good mellow, groovy

Cat power. Yo la tengo. Creeper
Lagoon. Kristin Hersh. Lou Barlow.
Nick Drake. Pavement. Coldplay.
The Twilite Singers. Bedhead.
Sonic Youth. Belle and Sebatian.
Dione Warwick. And of course Idaho.
I am sure I left out over 400.

Eyeless in Gaza is great,Rust Red September is one of my all time favorites, martyn bates did alot of solo stuff as well, best are: Love Smashed on a Rock, Letters to a Scattered Family and Mystery Seas (Letters Written #2) Eyeless in Gaza has a new CD out called Song of the Beautiful Wanton i have only heard the mp3s that are available to download but they sound great. more info at http://www.listen.to/eyeless

RE: Favorite Bands | from alan kyleSep 14 2000 - 07:14

I can't believe someone just mentioned eyeless in gaza!! I was a huge fan of cherry red records when I was a teenager. I loved "Rust Red September" the best along with "No Noise" on "Pillows & Prayers".

RE: Favorite Bands | from just daveSep 12 2000 - 19:58

ok so it has been five months now and i dove in head first into IDA, wow.... also The Malarkies, Shannon Wright, Jen Wood, Death Cab for Cutie, Built to Spill, Low, Kozelek, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Hayden.

RE: Favorite Bands | from adamSep 10 2000 - 15:50

Jeff, you gotta check out "my morning jacket", on Darla (i think). the record i heard was
called "Tenesse Fire", i think maybe.

Not a perfect record by any means,
a few stinkers, but 3 or 4 incredibly moving numbers.

RE: Favorite Bands | from alan kyle Aug 27 2000 - 06:33

Listening to this week:
Idaho- "People like Us..."of course, The Czars- "Before...but longer", Josh Rouse- "Home", Jim White- "Wrong-eyed Jesus" Joe Pernice- "Big Tobacco" Dakota Suite "Signal Hill" and Hayden- "The closer I get".

RE: Favorite Bands | from trevorJul 25 2000 - 13:32

Idaho (but of course!)
fave so far: 3 Sheets to the wind

Jawbox/Burning Airlines
check out the last Jawbox CD
called 'Jawbox' oddly enough

'Lula Divinia'

'Transaction de Novo'

Superchunk, cuz I've been sad

Ornette Coleman, 'Free Jazz',
cuz I'm sick of rock

RE: Favorite Bands | from gustav bergmanJul 23 2000 - 05:29

i LovE music. and idaho. other great bands. C-Clamp, red stars theory, modest mouse, built to spill, dianogah, death cab for cutie yeah i can go on for ever. thank you for putting your brilliance on disc. i can´t wait for the new album.

I forgot to give honourable mentions to the following fab groups and singers...built to spill, grandaddy, smog,josh rouse, chester, radar& pernice bros, neutral milk hotel, beulah, palace bros & will oldham, liquorice, satchel, labradford, pavement (RIP), early 10,000 Maniacs,papa m,pj harvey, olivia tremor control.
Worth mentioning Lotion and Shudder to Think again and that wayward genius Mary Margaret O'Hara!!

RE: Favorite Bands | from BobApr 13 2000 - 14:14

My favorite bands besides Idaho at this point are TICKET TO MARS and THE ERICS which are both from the NYC area. Check them out! Idaho still rocks my world though!

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny T.Apr 11 2000 - 13:03

Where you you people get access to all this stuff? You all work at the Record Exchange or in adventurous media or something? Surely Boise radio rarely plays any of this stuff or is of any influence...

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny T.Apr 11 2000 - 13:01

You're right--I missed the excellence of the debut Handsome Boy Modeling School. It seems they are due for a sphomore ffort--hopefully. Lots of variety too--not just a hip-hop record. Lately, I've been listening to a lot of stuff on the Bomb Hip Hop label out of SFO. Their DJ collections series has some monster clever turntablist and scratchology action. The latest Mixmaster Mike (Beasties, Invisibl Skratch Piklz) is quite a kinetic connective--(whew! I was afraid Asphodel went outta bizness). Even has Swans' bassist Joe Goldring. Reminds me of the Crunch-O-Matic/Bassomatic stuff that came out some eight years ago. The new Drunk I felt wasn't as good as the one that came out late in '98. Nonetheless, I've yet to note a Jag Jaguwar disc to ever be a drink coaster.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Steve BarnesApr 11 2000 - 10:07

Right at this moment listening to East River Pipe. Within the last few days listened to The Lapse, Polak, Ben And Jason, The For Carnation, Penfold, Half Film, Swell,Red House Painters, Drunk, Smog, Six By Seven, Doves, Mazarin, Badly Drawn Boy, Wheat, Yo La Tengo. That enough?

RE: Favorite Bands | from KiniApr 07 2000 - 19:56

Jenny T...Listen to The Handsome Boy Modeling School record.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny T. againApr 06 2000 - 14:18

As for hip-hop--the past couple months I've been rolling with Q-Tip and the new Blackalicious. Hard to find much humor and uplifting stuff lyrically within the wide scope of rap/hip-hop, but some of the more CLEVER stuff really stands out. I'm a bit mainstream in that front, reaching for early De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest if I want something with intellect and variety. Actually my fave Talk Talk LP was the Rites disc.

RE: Favorite Bands | from RobApr 05 2000 - 13:26

The New National Skyline EP
is Fantastic!! There are moments of ALAS in there too.

RE: Favorite Bands | from ECS.Apr 04 2000 - 03:35

All great rock bands, can't argue with any of them, but I've been listening to lotso' hip hop radio.
Ice Cube, Aaliyah, Eminem, Trick Daddy, Juvenile, Montell Jordan, and Trina is my hot new pick.
I hope no one thinks I'm trying to be sarcastic. Even though Idaho is my favorite band of all time, and I'm in a downtempo rock band myself, hip hop is beautiful, and amazingly inventive. Also, I've been listening to Jeff Buckley's Grace, although it's a bit derivative, it's got power. RHP and Nick Drake, and countless others can never be put away. New issue of Sonicpress.com coming soon. Check out the Idaho issue, if you haven't seen it.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Alex (from a few weeks ago)Apr 03 2000 - 19:12

Do any of you remember the 80's synth pop band, Talk Talk? They released a final album in '91 that is truly genius. The front man, Mark Hollis, released an album in '98 that is even a further evolution of his genius. You must get it!

RE: Favorite Bands/Sky Cries Mary | from Jenny T.Apr 03 2000 - 13:45

Am listening to the Rhea's Obsession CD "Between Earth & Sky" on Metropolis--remonds me quite a bit of Sky Cries Mary, only RO is a little more dreamy and less dramatic. One of Sky Cries Mary's more interesting shows was their presentation some five years ago at the Neurolux--the band being forced to utilize every square inch of the venue's small stage for their quite extravagent set-up; the projectionist casting off the light show from the rear end of the bar twenty feet to a bedsheet behind the stage. Sure did beat the Whitman College gig in Walla Walla--the seats all the way fixed to the auditorium floor left no room for one to dance!

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny T.Apr 03 2000 - 13:37

Disc two of the 2-disc best-of compilation by Cracker on Virgin (Garage D'Or) is quite a spaghetti Western montage. A little more of their Monks of Doom side and less of the Camper Van Beethoven camp.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Andy RawlinsonApr 02 2000 - 16:30

Great to be part of this,Jeff.I love the new Idaho stuff.Any chance of UK tour this year?My favourite record of the year so far is the For Carnation record.Lambchop "Nixon" is cool as well.Check out Jim O'Rourke,David Grubbs and Archer Prewitt for Chicago hip.Also Will Oldham is always good as is David Pajo under various titles.The new Smog record should be worth checking out.Alt country listening should include Handsome Family,Silver Jews and Richard Buckner.Yo La Tengo and GBV never fail to delight.Enjoy!

RE: Favorite Bands | from clam noisesApr 02 2000 - 00:51

Morrissey and Godflesh for your daily dose of bitterness and resentment. Corrupted for swirling, engulfing layers of feedback, dirge riffs, and desperation. And, of course, the new Impaled CD.

Oh, and if U like Massive Attack-- | from Jenny T. mellotrongrrrlApr 01 2000 - 00:35

--don't overlook Twilight Circus Dub Sound System (did I get that right?) or the new Ras Command "Serious Smokers" on the Waveform label, or Organized Kryme's "Vibe Volume 1" on the 1st Step label--the latter two just out the past two weeks. Lots of looped dub workouts, reverb, On-U Sound and Ariwa nods, extensions, extruded version wig outs--however you describe these groove head trips....I heard an album called "Milk" on RAS that was way wiggy too....

Geneva, Hayden, Ed Kuepper | from Jenny T.Apr 01 2000 - 00:28

I'd have to say Swell too--sounds great adjacent to Tarnation or Thin White Rope. Mansun! Another great recent overlooked band! Ed Kuepper--a lot of his Aussie imports are all over in the dollar bins in Portland. Geneva? Well, I have a funny story about them. A female impersonator in Portland was lip-synching "Closer To The Stars" and I told her the singer was a male! Blush!

RE: Favorite Bands | from alan kyleMar 18 2000 - 11:31

Thought I might as well get in on the act here. Apart from Idaho of course the best of the rest are...
Lotion, Shudder to Think, Sparklehorse, Yo La Tengo, Wheat, Lambchop,Fountains of Wayne, Low, American Music Club, Cocteau Twins, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Tim & Jeff Buckley, Nick Cave, Jane Siberry, Massive Attack, Go-Betweens, Hugo Largo, Moby, REM, Hayden, Matthew Sweet, Liz Phair, Morrissey, Tom Waits, Red House Painters, Joni Mitchell, Vic Chesnutt, Mark Eitzel, the Butterflies of Love, Mark Mulcahy, Guided By Voices, Cousteau, Mansun, Radiohead, Geneva, Rickie Lee Jones, Kristin Hersh, Pixies, Swell, Whiskeytown, Wilco, Son Volt, Ed Kuepper, Buffalo Tom...
the list is endless so I'll stop there. Alan Kyle.

RE: Favorite Bands | from AlexMar 17 2000 - 12:20

I don't know if they qualify as bands, but I'm really into the, what I guess are called, holy-minimalist composers (Arvo Part, John Tavener, Henryk Gorecki, etc.). The music is truly Transcendent. There's a really good band here in Athens, GA called the Walt Larriat. Hey, Jon Thompson! I tried to get your stuff a few months ago, and I couldn't. Remember? Is it any more possible? Dear Idaho, if I can't get a copy of your new album before May 15, when I leave the country, I'm gonna be sadder than Sinead O'Connor! Can you help me?

RE: Favorite Bands | from JonathanMar 16 2000 - 19:16

ok here goes my two cents worth of favourite bands--ida, wheat, those bastard souls, eno's "another green world, saturnine (new record kicks!), radar bros., shannon wright, crooked fingers (aka eric bachman), richard buckner, american analog set, yo la tengo, danielle howle and the tantrums, no knife (socal rock)...

buy records by these artists!

later Idahoans, jonathan

(man i can't believe i saw a "rein sanction" reference up above..hell yes..that band ruled!)

RE: Favorite Bands | from Bobby-BMar 14 2000 - 16:45

Ah yes, my favorite bands are NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Brittney Spears, Mandy Moore, and Michael Jackson. Oh and by the way for those of you who are Idaho fans might want to check my new record with Bill Clinton an Sax, and myself on lead Skin Flute, it should prove to be amazing.

Idaho rocks,

RE: Favorite Bands | from DamianMar 14 2000 - 07:56

Favourite bands?Brian Eno,which is
partly an Idaho thing,Kraftwerk,
Radiohead,Pink Floyd,Joy Division,
MOR in comparison to everybody
else here : ).And two thumbs up to
Idaho as well.If I had more thumbs
I'd stick them up too.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny T. Mar 11 2000 - 21:32

Best bands I've heard so far this year have been Tex, Sin Ropas, Coldspot 8, Hoven Droven & Evola. Actually, I like old mellotron bands, psyche, tripno, D'n'B and stuff that isn't too serious or polished.

RE: Favorite Bands | from jonMar 11 2000 - 21:17

i am the jon thompson orchestra. thank you, dave for mentioning me on here. i feel honored.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Alex BruceMar 08 2000 - 13:30

I love Idaho, along with many other bands, notably Red House Painters. On which note can I just say HOORAY!!! The band has just bought back the rights to Old Ramon, and can now release it. I'm sooooooo happy, and can't wait for it to be released.
I also listen to Mark Eitzel and American Music Club quite a lot, Edith Frost's first album is great although I don't like telescopic. I love the Silver Jews. The Doctor came at Dawn by Smog is also a favourite. What else...? Love Rachel's and Shipping News and the For Carnation, and of course Slint. I'm also a huge Tom Waits fan.

Can't think of anything else for the moment, just whoopeeee!!!!!!!, bring on Old Ramon....


RE: Favorite Bands | from Chase KMar 08 2000 - 10:16

- - The favorite bands topic seems to be a popular one, everyone wanting to get their two cents in. Some of the better music in my arsenal these days, aside from all the Idaho discs - Hot Water Music, Boys Life (one of the greater Crank Records Bands ever), Sunday's Best, Swervedriver's Raise, Fugazi, Beasties circa 1990-1992, Hum, and Promise Ring's 30 Degrees everywhere. My most recent purchase was this new band called the Anniversary, definitely worth picking up. Once again though, Idaho is at the core of all of this, nothing seems to get better than songs like Goldenseal.

RE: Favorite Bands | from sweet trevorMar 07 2000 - 12:01

aceyalone, idaho, mark eitzel, versus, jim yoshii pile-up, codeine, wheat, josh rouse, mc paul barman, anything by prince paul, jim o'rourke, pernice brothers, windsor for the derby, squarepusher, meanest man contest, Buck 65

RE: Favorite Bands | from Steve GMar 06 2000 - 20:11

Well right now i'm quite smitten on
a relativly new band called South Pacific
there first ep "33" is probably there best
along with there latest full length
"constance" if your into the mellow noise
shoegazing sort of thing, i recommend it, and of course
my all time favourite band wold have to be

RE: Favorite Bands | from mauraMar 05 2000 - 17:12

Joseph Arthur - trust me on this one. Wave of the future for the mope-rock army. Chappaquiddick Skyline is also gorgeous - Joe Pernice does his best Vic Chestnutt/REM.

Nice to see Jeff Ferris on the list! How's it going Jeff?

Jeff & Dan - hurry up with the record, already. See you in April.

RE: Favorite Bands | from just daveMar 05 2000 - 00:16

everyday i walk into the record store and hope to be surprised by a new idaho or RHP (where the hell is Old Ramon!!!) so i have been draging thru looking for anything and have tried a lot of the stuff listed above but just does not satisfy so i've turned to neo-classical minimalist stuff: arvo part, steve reich, phillip glass. please release soon and see if you can get your label to pick up RHP. thanks by the way great site...

RE: Favorite Bands | from MattMar 04 2000 - 19:14

Thanks to the Shanti Project Collection, I'm now very much into the Red House Painters (bought all the early '90's 4AD reissues). I also am listening to lots of Tom Waits, Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, Mark Eitzel (and older American Music Club), the Beta Band, Brendan Perry, and Veda Hille. All good very good music.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Jenny OhMar 03 2000 - 23:02

RE: Favorite Bands | from chrisMar 03 2000 - 19:14

has anyone heard terry borden/mark lewis' band flotilla? their record is really good, and not what i expected at all, judging from their contributions to "3 sheets to the wind".. also listening to soulwax, chappquiddick skyline, antarctica, fifty foot hose, mercury, comsat angels, etc. etc. etc.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Alex DelanoMar 01 2000 - 21:15

When not listenig to Alas,..Windsor for the derby, Flying Saucer Attack, Windy and Carl, and Nine Inch Nails "Fragile"

RE: Favorite Bands | from M SarkiMar 01 2000 - 04:49


besides the two cd's of yours, the most playtime anybody else gets for me lately is Papa M (ex-Palace member David Pajo) and a couple of other REALLY good louisville bands called Helgeson Story and Killowatthours. Pajo is pure art, a true original. Others receiving honorable mention are Pedro the Lion, Low, Red House Painters. A scottish band called Appendix Out has lately gotten my attention and i have since ordered their two cd's. when your new record is done COME TO LOUISVILLE!

RE: Favorite Bands | from Katie SkibinskiMar 01 2000 - 03:42

bands i love:

saltine. (BRILLIANT new project of
ken stringfellow from the posies.
e-mail him at kstand@yahoo.com and
order their new 7".)
pernice brothers.
inxs greatest hits. (don't laugh.)
magnolia soundtrack.
the newest robyn hitchcock record.
apples in stereo.
jason falkner.

my favorite song is "you and your

RE: Favorite Bands | from kennMar 01 2000 - 01:07

Just saw Josh Rouse, so I pulled out
my copy of Dressed Up Like Nebraska. Ditto with
the Handsome Family. Their new one
In The Air is fantastic! Also like the
new Lambchop record-Nixon.

RE: Favorite Bands | from JeffroFeb 29 2000 - 23:48

Hi Jeff and everybody, Jeffro Farris in Austin, TX here. Since I don't work at Waterloo anymore I feel totally out of touch myself but I keep going back to Richard Buckner's albums, along with an insatiable habit for Versus and sometimes Superchunk when I need to cheer up for a second or two.

RE: Favorite Bands | from Deanus de miloFeb 29 2000 - 21:57

Hey Jeff; wow, this things taken off quickly!
Bands eh?
Rex = moments of genius. All the red red meat offshoots, Doug Martsch's golden fingers, Big star still send out little electric shocks, Radar brothers still godlike ( check out " open ocean sailing " from new LP ),
Aussie band El Mopa, early to mid Pavement, Will Oldham ( miserable drama queen that he is! ),
blah blah.
Must mop my brow then head out into the sunshine!

RE: Favorite Bands | from monicaFeb 29 2000 - 21:44

Well some of my all time favorites (other than Idaho, of course) are Barenaked Ladies, Radar Brothers, Billy Joel, Acetone, Harvey Danger... I just got Bedhead's Transaction de Novo which is great... also I've been listening to Versus's Two Cents Plus Tax, Of Montreal's Cherry Peel, Josh Rouse's Dressed Up Like Nebraska, E's A Man Called E... and I usually listen to Brian Eno's Music for Airports to go to sleep. The message board was a great idea. Later.


RE: Favorite Bands | from benjamin crockettFeb 29 2000 - 21:31

my obviously subjective, overly biased opinion of currently great music.
1. the Creeper Lagoon album "I become small and go" is great, and relatively undiscovered.
2. the Travis stuff is amazing!
3. i have been listening to a little Nick Drake as well these days and i would suggest it to anyone looking for some pleasant, mellow listening.
4. Radiohead is obviously genius
5.Pedro the Lion
6.Built to Spill
7.Jimmy Eat World

RE: Favorite Bands | from daveFeb 29 2000 - 21:13

First off, God bless this message
board and Jeff Almighty. As for
good tunes: Modest Mouse, Built
to Spill, Quasi, Revolutionary
Hydra, Rat Cat Hogan, Microphones,
Appleseed Apart, Red Stars Theory,
old Sonic Youth, Halo Benders, old
Red House Painters, Jon Thompson
Orchestra, Slowdive's "Souvlaki
Space Station", My Bloody Valentine
and a lot of other bands on the
tip of my tongue. Visit these sites
for free mp3 and/or real audio:
I especially recommend for Idaho
fans the first two sites for Built
to Spill!

RE: Favorite Bands | from randyFeb 29 2000 - 19:45

Been listening to Belle & Sebastian "Tigermilk", Cypress Hill "Black Sunday", the new Cure album, Cranes (who I guess you opened for and have a new album coming out sometime), and Cowboy Junkies "Miles From Our Home"

RE: Favorite Bands | from frankFeb 29 2000 - 19:33

dag allemaal,
great stuff this message board.
as for my favorite records at the moment, there's the first two Lullaby for the Working Class discs "Blanket Warm" & "I never even asked for light"; there's Capt. Beefheart's "safe as milk"; Delgados "Peloton" and "Dopmestiques"; a compilation I got from The Wire with "New Music from central and eastern europe" (check out www.tamizdat.org for sound samples); Iva Bittova/Vladimir Vaclavek "Bile Inferno" (a Czech 2cd masterpiece that still rules since I got it about 1,5 years ago); The Sea and Cake "The Fawn"; and a great raw funk compilation "Stone Cold Funk"; and lots of Fela Kuti.
Anyway, i hope you won't miss belgium on your touring map for the next century. Did you ever play in belgium before? holland? europe?
bye for now,

RE: Favorite Bands | from ShellyFeb 29 2000 - 19:16


RE: Favorite Bands | from JimFeb 29 2000 - 19:00

Massive Attack's "Mezzanine" for tripping out at night. Gotta be played on a good stereo system...
Tragically Hip's "Phantom Power" for getting a needed rush on a bad day...
Underworld's "Beaucoup Fish" for feeling like the future is now, or for just completely grooving out. Another good hi-fi required...

RE: Favorite Bands | from ashFeb 29 2000 - 18:50

hello out there...
jeff, nice complement to an already
nifty site.
hmm...favorite bands,
i think it would be easier to just
list what's in my play list at the
Unwound - New Plastic Ideas
Mogwai - everything and anything
they've released
C-Clamp - Longer Waves
U-Ziq - Royal Astronomy
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Elliot Smith - XO
The Gathering - Superheat
Codeine - Frigid Stars
Shiner - Lula Divinia
Heroic Doses - (don't remember the
title, its a promo copy)

I'm eager to hear when/where the
new show dates are. Is it possible
for Idaho to play in Madison or
Milwaukee this summer?

Take care,

RE: Favorite Bands | from AdamFeb 29 2000 - 16:40

It seems that a lot of people out their appreciate the "Idaho"esque nature of a lot of American bands - Low, RHP etc. Nothing against any of these bands at all, but I'm currently listening to a quite broad range of music - Slipknot (never thought I'd see them on an Idaho board!), Techno Animal (dark dub-hop), Karma to Burn (West Virginian stoner grooves) and just about anything else you can think of. Can't wait for the new record Jeff - any chance you'll be touring the U.K.?

RE: Favorite Bands | from kellyFeb 29 2000 - 16:21

I've been jamming Caustic Resin.

RE: Favorite Bands | from christianFeb 29 2000 - 16:20

Hi Jeff,

Right now, I really enjoy listening to a band called June of 44, and all the side projects of drummer Doug Scharin: Rex, Directions in Music. I don't know if you've heard of them. You probably have...
Built To Spill is also a nice company.
Another one of my night time favorite is Labradford latest album "E Luxo So".
Lou Barlow's Folk Implosion "One Part Lullaby".
I have also discovered lately the Jazz pianist Brad Mehldau. The album called "Elegiac Time" is the one I Know and it is really worth listening to it.
I hope I made you discover something new and that you can enjoy...

help me | from jeff martinFeb 29 2000 - 15:32

hi yal, i couldnt think of a subject....i would love to know what people are listening to....im really out of touch....buried in the new record and all......thanks
