    I know Tom Waits! (his work, not personally)


    It's difficult for me to pick between Pushmonkey, Self, and Squarepusher.

    Mine would have to be FOETUS... no, NOT Dying Foetus, FOETUS, a.k.a. J.G. Thirwell, the guy behind the music of "The Venture Bros." I have, like, 20 of his albums, and I know I'm missing a LOT more.

    Lisa Loeb, as far as I'm concerned, is the gretest singer/songwriter of all time. I absolutly love her stuff.

    Oh, I've also got to put in a good word for my friend Adrian James. Some of you may have heard him at Botcon.

    Shaded Red. Did work in 97-00 I believe. During a tour they got into a fatal car accident. Killed their drummer and shattered the guitarist pelvis. Took some time off did one other album then split, more likely to keep doing work at their church. They had an incredible sound, kind of bluesy meets rock. Lots of horns, excellent guitar riffs. Would love to see them come out with another album some time.

    I enjoy Boyce's girlfriend, though her name escapes me. Great vocals. Extremely nice, too.

    The Refreshments, but you've heard of them. Perhaps Cake? Everybody loves Cake, especially the retarded people.

    Wow. We agree on something. I wouldn't say the best, but one of the best. Good thing this wasn't a thread about that waste of pencil and ink, Ben Reilly. :p 

    As for "unknowns" I'd throw in The Upper Crust. Saw them for the first time on New Years Eve 1996. They opened for Aerosmith at the Fleet Center. I loved them right then and there.

    Though I guess they aren't as unknown as I thought, as they do have a track as a bonus/store track on Guitar Hero.

    Who doesn't at least know of Tom Waits though?

    Now The Fall..30 years and most people's first exposure is a god damn car commercial.

    Ah, good ol' Baldylocks. One of my best friends loves Strapping Young Lad and anything else Devin Townsend is involved in more than just about anything else.
