Actually I think The Darkness' popularity has already peaked on both sides of the Atlantic. I hated hair metal when I was a kid the first time around. Sure it's knowing and campy, but it's still that ball-squeezing falsetto brand of hair metal that I never liked in the first place.

Speaking of metal, any Apocalyptica fans?

cheers,

The Darkness was the flavor of the month earlier this year.There really isn't anything original about them.Like most music out there today it's mostly about the packaging and not so much of the music.

IMO the only bands worth listening to these last few years are Gomez,Strokes,Radiohead,Beta Band,Coldplay,Oasis.Chemical Bros,Primal Scream,Eels,Beck,Dandy Warhols,Badly Drawn Boy,White Stripes,and maybe a couple of others.

Just for that, I'm gonna wear my nomeansno 'Kill Everyone Now' shirt for Guatemala.

Only one band really matters and that is TURBONEGRO.

Well Chairman Mao was a great cook . . .

GL> you mean we could have been listening to the Mars Volta on the way to Kingston? I'm confused though, their songs aren't all 10 minutes long. ;)

Turbonegro are a great band and any friends of St. Pauli are friends of mine, but I don't think that makes all of those other bands 'crap'.

cheers,

Hey, and I brought Hot Rats specifically for you to hear, what with the Captain Beefhart guest vocal and all...... :)

The Mars Volta haven't struck me as playing "summertime" music so it never occured to me to bring it. Maybe next time! They are the only band that I've ever had to journey to the Punk section of a music store to find, which was strange as I first heard about them when reading a critics' "Top 10 Progressive Rock Albums of 2003" article. I figured any band that plays prog and was formed at a Doctor Who convention (or so the legend goes) was worth venturing into the Punk area to check out. :)

Oh by the way, I neglected to mention Hamadryad in my original post, great new band out of Montreal. Guess what kind of music they play...... ;)

Now here's something in this thread I can relate to. I bet it was not well-received. It took me at least five listens to get into, but now I think it's a masterpiece. You really have to sit back and listen carefully to most Zappa music, as you would classical music, as it's not well-suited to playing in a car or any other time when you're trying to do something else. This is why he would make people sit down, be quiet and actually listen at his concerts (before they got too big).

Those are all quality bands, but yr ignoring the great Canadian wave of music coming through.

Mathew,I knew someone would bring that up.Like I said it not a great time for music these days.Give me some examples and I'll give them a try.I have to admit though that I am a bit snobby when it comes to liking any music that isn't British.

BTW I'm going to see Matthew Goode this friday.He's not bad.I friend of mine is paying for the tickets after I treated for the Gomez show a couple of weeks ago.
