new favourite band.
Subtle's for hero for fool has been on repeat with me for the past week. Unbelievable album.
what are cats and cats and cats like?
first one is more "math"-y punk, with a hint of post rock, second e.p is more post rocky, but with elements of "math". They had a split single out with tired irie, who you should also check out as theyre ace.
If you don't own 'In the Aeroplane over the sea' by Neutral Milk Hotel I strongly recommend you buy that.
Also, most of the Sonic Youth back catalogue is £5 a piece in Fopp/HMV, so load up on that. My personal favs are 'Sister', 'Daydream Nation', 'Dirty', 'Washing Machine', 'Murray Street' and the wonderful 'Sonic Nurse'.

consistently still manage to astound me, about ten years after I got the first record.
for fans of Spiritualized, shoegaze-y stuff, and fuzzy melodic pop!
actual music on The Veils' myspace!
There used to be.

There's cracking stuff everywhere I look right now.
The Velvet Underground, Miss Black America, Animal Collective, Seafood, Cocteau Twins, Nick Drake.

...then you need to sort that out. Or if you can't do that, just go and listen to my band www.myspace.com/4or5magicians !
who the hell?
on sub pop in the late 80's. They recorded one album 'Bleach' and then split, it's a shame, they had a classic in them I reckon.
taste...I like bloody good music. Is that a taste? I don't care what you give me, just give it to me HARD.
I know Chiodos, my girlfriend plays them all the time.
