Holy crap, what is this?

OOIOO “Atatawa”

Anyone who likes gamelan music should check out this Boredoms offshoot. It’s lots of fun.

The Sound “Hot House”

To my mind, STILL the most “under-appreciated” British rock band of the 1980’s. Worth more to me then all the Echo And The Bunnymens and Teardrop Explodes you can throw my way. One day people will get it.

Half Japanese “In It’s Pull”

New Half Japanese. Yes, you read that right.

It’s (almost) commercial enough that even normal people
might like it.

Guided By Voices “Orange Jacket”

Robert Görl "Mit Dir" (1983)

Grauzone “Eisbaer”

A video for my favorite Grauzone song. The song is from the greatest post-punk year ever 1981 *(but the video is more recent).

D.A.F. “El Que”

Flipper “Sacrifice”

They took hardcore somewhere it hadn’t been before. Slowly.

US Maple “State Is Bad”

And yet another amazing band from the 90’s that never got their due.

Terakaft “Intidgagen”

To my ears, The Black Keys clearly have been listening to Northern African guitar bands like Terakaft and Tinariwen. The sound, the feel…everything.

Slint “Nosferatu Man”

Wikipedia says Spiderland was not widely recognized upon it’s initial release. That’s ridiculous. After the lackluster Tweez, Spiderland immediately looked like the visionary record of musical originality it still is.

Wire “No Warning Given”
