mclusky/Future of the left
Pulled Apart By Horses
definitely recommend you listen to them sequentially after that too
fugazi and shellac and such? forgive me if i'm being a massive, patronising twonk here...also metz, divorce,ice see dead people...
I don't get Fugazi, but I'm in a minority.
But I actually don't know much. Hence the thread!
Any good places to start?
Of those, I've only really listened to (and seen, and bought the t-shirt of) the wonderful Divorce.
not heard anything else by them. Pixies end of mclusky
but you could try Fucked Up. I love the music, just don't like the vocal. You might.
David Comes to Life was one of my albums of '11
Bear vs Shark
Drive Like Jehu
I saw them back when they only had one EP out (not that I'm showing off or anything). They have two bassists, no guitar.
Only ever seen them live and they're always a great drunken mess. They always support FOTL up this way.
I was hoping for a second album. Seems like the rhythym section returned to Oceansize? D:
Kong was only ever a side project anyway. Jon-lee's New project Then Thickens is a good'un, though completely different. Not sure what the others are doing but Stephen walked past me in Stoke Newington t'other day, so maybe he moved to London?!
is now Biffy Clyro's second guitarist. Has been full-time since their major label debut blew up. Good for him, great guy and incredible song writer who deserves a full time job as a musician more than most.
They should have him in as a full member. Imagine the kind of shit they'd write?
with kong. do you like jesus lizard?
It seems like a whole heavier strand of music completely passed me by till earlier this year...
I obviously recognise the name
and thirding Kong
get both albums, just do it
sink, sink, sink, sink VINEY!
All of Steve Albini's output; Shellac, Big Black, Rapeman.
Other Stuff from the 80s and 90s - Scratch Acid, The Jesus Lizard, Cows, Polvo, Butthole Surfers, Unwound, Harry Pussy, Flipper, Live Skull, Melvins..
Maybe going a bit too far off your original bans but all worth checking out,
definitely recommend Flipper, Cows, Melvins and Butthole Surfers
Harry Pussy is good as well, but quite different
We Are Knuckle Dragger - really messed up noisy bass-driven rock.
Baby Godzilla - same party WOOOOHH YEAAHH! of PABH, but more Refused-style punk rock.
who are fucking awesome
are fucking awesome, nice one!
music like this does seem to elicit phrases like 'fucking awesome' by way of praise. Hadn't even noticed the one concerning Hawk Eyes...
finally got round to getting their second album t'other day. T'is good, but i deffo need to see them live again.
Is on the way according to their facebook.
True Widow - As High as the Highest Heavens and From the Centre to the Circumference of the Earth
Rodan - Rusty
Fudge Tunnel - Teeth
Totally off base but, Iron Monkey
So much music
The new album is fantastic.
The Holy State album that came out earlier this year is worth a go. Also 'Let the Man Speak' by Wooderson is a pretty great Fugazi tribute...
such a bummer they split up
I'd say them.
TOM WAITS TOM WAITS TOM WAITS
Quite similar and good mates with Pulled Apart By Horses.
Some of 'em used to work at the Cavern in Exeter didn't they?
like this one
Deep in the Hole is definitely worth a listen
and when I'm in the mood to do that, I'm usually also in the mood to listen to Les Savy Fav
is Sonic Youth's Dirty. It was too square for the average no-wave goatee stroking hipster, but it's actually a lot of fun. And freaking intense as well. Bands don't sound like this anymore
Penthouse (gutter erotica is their best);
Eighties matchbox b-line disaster (horse of the dog); and
Gallon drunk (You, the night ... And the music).
The three albums i mention are probably in my top 50 albums of all time. As are 'do Dallas', 'travels ...' and (maybe at a push) pabh's S/t.

Hired Muscle, noisy with added funk
Layo Rasor, instrumental but still full of noisy math-rock goodness
Ravenous, a little bit more pop than some of the other suggestions but definitely worth your time.
just so I can post this
Listened to Reuben and Kong thus far (and a couple of odd tracks). Both, whilst different, are exactly what I was looking for!
.... just went to pick some up based on recommendations in this thread (and others) and they appear to have a pretty sizeable number of discs.
The one I meant are from the UK and have the album Snake Magnet.
This is them... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bqhY31PBug
But we meet the brief;
The description of the Dutch Kong sounds not bad:
"...unscrupulous musical collage melds elements of heavy metal, progressive rock, electronica, and the avant-garde -- all of it backed up by extensive sampling and quirky sound effects."
and could possibly also have fitted into this thread too.

Dublime returns this autumn, bringing Lee Scratch Perry, dEbruit, Channel One Sound System and more for a night of roots, reggae, and all things dub...
Dublime is back on Friday November 2nd, coming to Electric Brixton for a night of pure dub eclecticism. With a live set from dub legend Lee Scratch Perry and renowned musician dEbruit, as well as sets from Mikey Dread and Jah T’s Channel One Sound System, plus support from Rootsteady and Jonny Trunk, Dublime Presents... will be a celebration of dub, in all its forms.
Lee Scratch Perry performs alongside a live band. Promising a warm, bouncing set that cuts to the very core of dub culture. He’s a reggae pioneer – considered the godfather of dub, and a true advocate for expression and equality in music. Joining Lee Scratch Perry is celebrated musician dEbruit whose love of African rhythms and funk combine with his love of dub to create a dancefloor-friendly sound. He plays live, promising a rock-solid and confident set.
South London’s world-renowned Channel One Sound System also joins the Dublime party; Notting Hill Carnival veterans Mikey Dread and Jah T have played a major role in the spread of dub music throughout London, and their set will have the whole venue moving.
Support comes from Jonny Trunk of Trunk Records who has one of the largest library music record collections in the UK, and reggae selector Rootsteady, so expect a thorough exploration of dub, reggae and electronic music.
Dublime first appeared at Fabric in 2004 as the first night to incorporate all mutations of the dub music genre. Using Lee Scratch Perry as the foundation of the night, promoter Hyponik programmed techno, jungle, reggae and dubstep around him, resulting in a sold-out event attended by people from many different walks of life. And now Dublime is back – this time coming to Brixton.
"Hyponik is delighted to be bringing back Dublime,” says Hyponik’s Matt V. “Especially coming to Brixton, which has seen many forms of dub over the years progress and evolve. We’re delighted to have the founder of dub music himself, Lee Scratch Perry.”
A stunning venue with a strong music history, Electric Brixton has had a big year since its relaunch and opening in September 2011. Having hosted events including Carl Cox: The Revolution, Cocoon Heroes and the South West Four after party, this stunning venue is a prime spot for Dublime, sure to showcase the D&B J Series sound system to thrilling effect.
Matt V continues: “The Electric Brixton provides the perfect auditorium for such a night and we hope to continue with the concept throughout 2013.”
Dublime presents a journey through music – a masterclass in dub, and a lesson in the history of bass culture and the future of electronic music. Come join the party!

Gorra day off on Thursday and I'll be rinsing these x
