Or that you like as well that I may like.

I like:
Incubus (Everything from the pre-SCIENCE funk to the post-SCIENCE mellow rock)
Matchbox 20 (Everything from Tabitha's Secret through the latest)
Third Eye Blind (mostly the 1st selftitled, and last Out of the Vein album)
Collective Soul (it's all good)
Dashboard Confessional
Something Corporate
etc

Asher

Those are all crap!

Try harder.

Actually I've heard good things about Ben Folds (I don't think it's Five anymore). I will try some of that.

I love you.

You might like one band that I thought very highly of- The God Machine.

Asher

Are they British?

here's a recommendation - get over this fucking emo college rock crap and expand your horizons

Asher
03-06-2004, 18:19:21
Into what? Disco?

I like music that is:
1) Catchy
2) Meaningful
3) Poetic
4) Performed well

If you recommend me crap like The Hives or The Strokes or JET, I'm going to fucking kill you.

They were based in Britain, but came from America. Active between 1991 and 1994- band split after the bass player died from an aneurysm.

I'd second Brand New.

Asher

Name me some good Brand New songs (hah).

Immortal Wombat

The Juliana Theory

Their first album is pure pop-punk, so avoid that, you won't like it. The second album, Deja Entendu, isn't pop-punk at all.

Try...

Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades
I Will Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light
Okay I Believe You, but My Tommy Gun Don't
Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis

Asher

I don't like those song titles.

Any other bands?

The song titles bear little relation to the actual songs...

Asher

No, but they give me a bad vibe. They sound like what pompous artists call their paintings.

I've got loads of bands I dislike but whenever I think of them I think "No, no, calling that Asher Music would be too cruel."

Asher

Yes, but you're a chunky swede going for an arts degree, so ultimately no one would care.

There's music you like, but you think we'd dismiss it offhand. Meanwhile you want to hear new music, but are rejecting suggestions unheard.

You need to be in LWP.

Gavin DeGraw
Marc Broussard

Thanks for your recommendations.

I bought the latest Coldplay album and the latest Jonny Lang album. They are both brilliant.

Thank you.
