One of my favorite rap groups. Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith. EPMD stands for Erick & Parrish Makin' Dollars.

U2 was great. I LOVE their early stuff, especially "The Unforgettable Fire" album. Back then they sounded like nobody else on earth. I haven't bought anything of theirs since Achtung Baby.

I also love The Who (while Moon was still with us)
Jethro Tull in the Seventies
Yes (classic lineup of Anderson, Squire, Howe, Wakeman, White)
Genesis before "And Then There Were Three"
Van Morrison
CCR
The Band

Hmmm, never heard of them. Well at least it wasn't something really obvious that I should have been expected to answer. What kind of music do they make?

No, it wasn't obvious. They used to make hardcore/underground rap albums. Very little airplay on the radios until their breakout hit "Crossover" in the early-90's. They broke up soon after that. Reformed once more and are broken up again. They mainly produce other rap artists now.

Nope, I just found out about them a few months ago. They came out on Rollins's book label, right?

Never been a fan of Cave myself but you might be interested to know that he has written a movie, 'Proposition' which is showing at Sundance.

Sounds good - Aussie Western with Mike from Neighbours. Info

I've heard about it, and am dying to see it. |He has also been working on a few other screenplays. One is a sequal to Gladiator, that is a movie I don't want to see done, but if he does it then I feel it might be worth it.

Cave wrote the screenplay for "the Propostion" for the director Terence Hillcoat - he did another movie w/ Hillcoat - one of my favorite prison flicks, called "Ghosts of the Civil Dead", about ten years ago - and scored both films - the soundtracks are both great. Cave plays a character in "Ghosts..." too, the only role I know him having played except for that odd Cameo in "Johnny Suede" (I think it's called) where he came in wearing a massive blonde rockabilly wig and, lacking any salt, licked a woman's armpit to go with his tquila and lemon.

Cave would be in my favorites lists, still trying to whittle the other inclusions down to something manageable.

I'm now on a search for Ghosts of the Civil Dead.

"Ghosts of the Civil Dead" is ultra-violent, philosphical, funny and terrible - so many zoners would love it - I don't know why it's not a big cult movie in US and Britain

No love for Bruford-era Yes? Can't get over how good that guy is myself. My love for Yes stops after Close to the Edge (Tales from Topographic Oceans turned me off them a bit), but feel free to point me in the right direction as regards laer material.

Nice list Matthew, I especialy love Isis, one of the best live shows I've seen yet. I'm gonna download the others you mentioned.

Buffalo Daughter eh? If it also gets the Brocktune seal of approval then I'm sold. Thanks for the Polysics introduction by the way! Between that and the Residents my friends think I've finally gone nyuts. You just can't buy that kind of entertainment.

if you like isis, the bands on the list of a similar post-metal sound would be Pelican, Neurosis, and Cult of Luna. I'm envious you saw 'em live!

arent those guys just the cats pajamas?
they (polysics) are playing down here on the 6th of march. i just got my tix yesterday, and i am so pumped to go! glad to hear you like em.

and as far as buffalo daughter... they are a little experimental/artsy (especially the later stuff) but with strong funk and dance undertones. great stuff. hope you like them too.

i could take or leave their records after scumdogs (america must be destroyed is ok) but live, gwar are amazing. loudest, messiest show ive ever been to. great stuff.

btw, if you like gwar, you may want to check out the DBX. The Dave Brockie Experience. its oderous urungus from gwar, sans the makeup and costume, but twice as hilarious. ive seen a little bit of them live. well worth checking out.
