Re: Fave Bands.
I'm not weird... I love Depeche Mode.
There are a few other bands that I am crazy about; I'm sure no one has heard of them, but I'll try it anyway: The Flat Duo Jets (they named themselves after a guitar!), Trance To The Sun, and Plaid.

What's weird about DM is that I usually hate at least one song per album by them, and then after a few months, I am totally in love with that song.
The other bands have a style that could only be called Improvisational- quite impulsive and illogical music theory, but it WORKS; and thus I become obsessed with their technique. The same could be said for Radiohead, but I don't consider them to be one of my favorites, because there are too many songs of theirs that actually grate on my nerves (the hard-rock screaming ones).

Radiohead are the greatest thing in the universe, closely followed by the Super Furry Animals, Longpigs or the almighty Ten Benson.
I saw A live a while back and they were pretty good (I really went to see Rival Schools who were support but I ended up in the mosh at A....strange that). Muse were also bloody amazing live.

Re: Fave Bands.
Gibal, I shot Slayer on the 15th of July this year at the London Astoria if you are interested in some photos.

Fave Bands; Pist.On, Rammstein, Type O, Pantera, Ministry, AFI, Fear Factory, White Zombie, Cold, Lacuna Coil, Medication etc... I'm sure there are more, but I forget...

Fave 80's bands; Frankie Goes to Hollywood, U2, Queen, Adam and the Ants, Duran Duran, etc....

Just a thought, it appears there are loads of Metallers here, if anyone fancies some photos of bands playing live or are curious as to who I have shot and who I haven't, email me here- zeronothingmore@hotmail.com and I will email you a list of bands I have under my belt so to speak.

Aahhh, you can't blame me for wanting to make some money -I have Ring DVD's to buy! ;)

***CURVE***

Their new album 'Gift' is brilliant.

Also, Massive Attack, Cibo Matto, Killing Joke, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, The Fall, Pixies, YMO, Smashing pumpkins, the Banshees (and the Creatures), Bowie, Jesus and Mary Chain, New Order, Gang of Four, This Mortal Coil, Velvet Underground, etc. etc.
As you can see I'm a bit out of touch with recent music...I've heard Coldplay are decent...

Fave band ever
The best bband ever to stride the planet are, without a doubt, Jane's Addiction. Yeah!!!

As a bit of an alternative (read: goth) from the eighties, also have a bit of a thing for The Sisters of Mercy, The Pixies, The Fields of the Nephilim and the great, great, Chameleons. Don't worry, though, I only listen to a couple of these now (I'll let you guess..).

Now, I have a real thing for BabyBird. Sorry, but I just think they're (he?) is absolutely ace.

Big Neil Diamond fan also, courtesy of the malign influence of my wife.

I don't think they've released an album for a couple of years, although Stephen Jones (singer/instrumentalist/all round talented weirdo) released a triple minidisc early in 2002 of music (not songs), though I haven't heard it. I've got their three major albums, and American greatest hits double CD and an album called Dying Happy. Anyone got any others that are worth bothering with?

Re: BabyBird
White Zombie broke up. Their front man - Rob Zombie - went solo and released a very mediocre album called I-forget-what-it's-called. But he DID make a kewl song on that album called "Dragula". You know?

"Devil on your back
Hound of hell, you cry!
Knuckle crack the bone
I can never die!"

It was remixed pretty well for The Matrix.

I like Jebediah. Aussie band from Perth. Plus Moloko. But for sheer retro value, I love the Fine Young Cannibles.

I think Rob Zombie is super cool. He has a great sense of style and imagination. I love that spooky/sleazy style.
He is a brilliant artist and has an eye and love for horror that's is totally old school.

I was so pist.off when the makers of The Crow 3 dropped him from the project just as it was being filmed or something -why? Because he made it too dark! Yeah, go figure!

The other thing that is cool about Rob is that he looks like a dead tramp and STILL has a hottie for a wife!

Re: Mr Zombie
Ummm why do you say Rob Zombie went "solo"?? He just ditched his old band and changed the name - like Marilyn Manson (the name thingy anyway) Rob Zombie would be bollocks without Riggs and Blasko........

As for Janes Addiction, there touring together again i think and makin a new live album...so a little piece of double-sided sticky tape told me.

As for slayer pics....YES PLEASE!!!!!! I LOVVVVVE SLAYER!!!! My email addy is in my profile...please send!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And as for "Do smarties have the answer" the answer is no - they used to - but now they took the question off the side..and its racking my brain to remember the question, let alone what the answer was.

On the grounds off whats better "Strawberry or Vanilla icecream" -- i say Vanilla, coz us in biz know that Strawberry is mostly vanilla.

Re: Mr Zombie
Bill Bailey does a very good impression of Slayer but it's highly unlikely anyone knows who he is.

I nearly went to Reading this year but money limitations stopped me. I've been dying to see incubus for chuffing ages and now it looks like I'll never se them in England.

And does anyone remember At The Drive In? The Pecadiloes? Anyone?

Re: BabyBird
I have to say that Ritaul was good, but I thought Nothing's Shocking was better. JA toured America a while back (with Flea from the Chilli Peppers on bass instead of Eric A), and released an album called Kettle Whistle, full of live stuff and different versions, etc - well worth getting, as it has four previously unreleased tracks on it. Perry Farrell released an album called Songs Yet to Be Sung late last year, which I haven't got - it's fairly expensive in the UK, and i'm loath to part with that much cash without having a blind clue as to what it's like. (The reason for my caution is that I thought Porno For Pyros were only really okay, but were far too cabaret for me, though they were good headlining the Reading Festival). If anyone's got any opinion on the album, let me know.

Gibal says that JA are touring agin and releasing a new album - any info on this (possibly momentous) occasion gratefully appreciated!

I used to like Mudhoney and quite a lot of the SubPop stuff? Anyone else.

Re: Mr Zombie
Yeah, Kiriyama I have seen Spaced. Possibly the greatest comedy series ever. Apparently, Simon Pegg (Tim Bisley) is working on a horror film called "Shaun Of The Dead". It was previewed at Cannes and it look bloody hilarious.

ATD-I!!! Yeah! Great band. What other band have a song that stars with the lyrics "autonomous machette for hands", eh?
They are (were) the kings of lyrical nonsense and stupid song titles (Rolodex Propaganda anyone?)

they were ace at Reading a few years back. and anything Simon Pegg gets his hands on usually ends up being great so I'm not waiting impatiently for that horror flick :)

into a lot of bizarre things -- if it's kitschy, I'm usually right there.

So right now, it's been a lot of Fantastic Plastic Machine (Japanese kitsch-pop DJ, music's been on Spaced and a few other places), Princess Superstar (whitegirl rap for the bitter in us all), and nerdcore hiphop (MC Chris and Frontalot will rule the universe!).

And David Bowie's latest album. Which just generally kicks my ass.

Re: Slayer
well I suppose i'd be more interested to see the pics if I'd actually been to the show. Otherwise it's just gonna make me gutted I didn't pull a sicky at work (was offered cheap tickets and everything aaargh!) don't suppose you took any pics at this years Ozzfest did ya?
If you want to set a site up for your pics it's fairly easy to get one on geocities (I know there far from ideal but easy to use) all you need is like an hour to go from creating the account to having a couple pages of photo spreads (if you're really lazy like meyou can even use pagebuilder :) )
