in thread I usually listen to...

Don't agree with many of your classifications, but recognizing many of the groups I'd suggest

As far as groups: Sigur Ros (Icelandic, but sings in a made-up language), Gus Gus, Chemical Brothers and Futurama; Land of the El Caminos, Soul Coughing, dEUS (Belgian), The Rentals (second group of Matt Sharp, lead singer of Weezer), Modest Mouse (especially older stuff) and Ugly Casanovas (supergroup with MM lead singer), 764-HERO. And for the harder stuff of course Primus, Faith No More, Ozzy, Clawfinger (Swedish Rap-metal) and Therapy?. Oh yeah, also Ben Lee and maybe Looper.

I'm not belgian but I play one on TV. On dit que je parle comme un belge aussi.

    The classifications were extrememly generic at best and were intended for those with limited knowledge about the mentioned bands, and of music altogether. I could have literally classified those 50 or so groups into about 25 categories.

    Sigur Ross is great! I really should have had them in my recommended list. My wife has the Sigur Ross alien tatoo'd ......somewhere. I also love Gus Gus, and old Chem Brothers (dirt). Soul Coughing is another band I know a bunch about. I listen to them a few times a year. Modest Mouse is great. The drummer for Primus lived in my small college town for a while. I literally grew up listening to their stuff. Favorite from them was the song Southbound Packaderm. Woodpeckers from Mars was my little group of friends' theme song in high school. Ozzy is well, Ozzy.

    I have not heard anything from the following bands:
  • Land of the El Caminos (though I live there)
  • dEUS
  • The Rentals
  • Ugly Casonovas
  • 764-Hero
  • Clawfinger
  • Ben Lee
  • Looper

  • I look forward to checking all of them out though along with the site you included. Thanks for the input.

    The Clawfinger self titled album Clawfinger (album link) is OK, but after about half of the album, it gets repetative. I can only stand it for about 3 songs before I toss it back into the collection not to be brought out for another month or so.
      Yes, but their older stuff is much better (Use Your Brain and Deaf Dumb Blind) ditto for Therapy (Screamager)? For both there are a few gems (Therapy?: Church of Noise; Clawfinger: Vienna) on newer albums but on the hole they are no longer superb, as you say.
