Yeah, it's pretty much a given, isn't it?
And now I'm listening to Electro-Shock Blues by the Eels. Effin' fantastic album.
I need to get that.Originally Posted by Fugazi Dave
I'm keen on Franz Ferdinand's new one, and of course, Bonnie "Prince" Billy.
Today - the Mekons, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Big Sugar, Popa Chubby and the MC5. And KMHD jazz, 89.1 FM, also on the web for those of you that need a jazz fix and can't get one on your local radio station http://www.kmhd.org/

Is anyone else as excited as I am about the new Mission of Burma CD that comes out this Tuesday?
Recently picked up a copy of The Hellacopters' CREAM OF THE CRAP VOL. 2. Rock does live on!
How much?Originally Posted by Fugazi Dave

Also been seriously admiring the TV ON THE RADIO album Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes. It exists on it's own plane.
That is indeed good stuff. Is it doo-wop? Is it indie-rock?Originally Posted by skitbraviking
Yeah, it's an album worth owning.
Personally, tonight I was blasting Unrest "Perfect Teeth". What a fantastic album for a perfect spring night.
I have that spinning almost every day at work...call it my midday Calgon. I cannot get enough of that disc.
Another good disc I picked up used:
Thelonius Monk~Genius of Modern Music, Vol1
Lately I've been listening the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Weezer. Thrown in a little Postal Service and Jim Crawford Band every now and then too.
"Goddamn. I love the Mekons. And I thought I was the only person left in the US who did"
I like Mekons - also like Waco Bros
today I've been listening to Yellowcard, Three Days Grace, Buzzcocks, Naked Raygun, The Gamma Men, and Lynyrd's Innards
that brings back memories of Tuts, Oz, Metro, Igloo...man, I miss good Chicago Bands, especially the Effigies.Originally Posted by Hatsephsut
I'm like to see everyone likes non-mainstream stuff. Here's a tip, listen to some Evergreen Terrace or Stretch Arm Strong then go for a ride. That stuff makes me want to just go nuts, it's great. I like me some hardcore, punk, emo, indie, and some bluegrass. Oh yeah, a good little-known band is called Jaya The Cat. Go to their website and listen to "the wilderness", http://www.goldcircle.com/jayathecat/jayasoundcheck.htm it's a song I think a lot of the bikers can relate to. Peace

bad religion - "you" later i'll be listening to the fleshies and SHAT (hopefully).
I just figured out the easy reply button - idiot - anyway, then you should have gone to Metro for the benefit and seen Pegboy, last month I think it was? shame on you if you didn't :-)Originally Posted by 
Larry opened with something to the effect of "it's not our own show so I don't have to make an a**hole of myself tonight" - which of course, if you know Larry's style, means he gave great show
man, you're even older than i am.Originally Posted by

I still remember Larry and the Bhopal Stiffs playing at Dirty Nellies in the late 80s though, and have seen Pegboy more than a couple times.
So Lady H, name your fav Chicago show...inquiring minds want to know.
