Neutral Milk Hotel, Califone, Tobacco, Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Octopus Project, Beirut, Iron and Wine, Zackey force Funk, Calexico and Uncle Tupelo. Dj's = Kutmah, The Gaslamp Killer and Peanutbutter Wolf. There is currently 11000 people at the plant I work at and maybe 1 other person might know 1 band from this list.

Well, it's not like noone else has heard of the bands listed above...I've heard of over 50% of the ones mentioned, actually heard most of those and own LPs or CDs of a number of them.

Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias...man I haven't heard anyone mention them for over 30 years! No, I don't have that record (came out in 1976 BTW).

This thread is starting to remind me of "Losing My Edge" 8)

The Toiling Midgets - Sea of Unrest in particular.
great punk psychedelica.

The Dust Devils - contemporaries of Sonic Youth, Midwest style.

No one I know has heard of Einoma, which is a shame. Think Autechre, only musical :twisted:

Je ne suis pas une communiste
Je ne suis pas une cycliste
Je ne suis pas une catholique
Je ne suis pas une footballiste

allez allez circulez avec ton cul d'un pédé
j'aime les femmes, j'aime les garçons
et comme j'ai déjà dit, j'aime les zizi's

putain putain c'est vachement bien
nous sommes quand même tous des européens

ne korte dikke stoot alles in stukken
ne lange dunne doet deugd van binnen
'k heb een kleintje maar 'k schiet verre

il y a des gens qui parlent beaucoup
mais ne disent rien du tout
il y a des gens qui crèvent de faim

putain putain c'est vachement bien
nous sommes quand même tous des européens

jolie demoiselle prend mes mains
le samedi soir tout le monde prend un bain
the rich may be rich, the poor may be poor
they all beat the shit of each other

putain putain c'est vachement bien
nous sommes quand même tous des européens

Cool, listening in... sounds really good so far.

Was going to ask whether most of the obscure bands are non-electronic... so good to hear some suggestion in the electronic direction...
