Anything by Steely Dan. Bad white boy jazz? Or dull light rock? Pick one and stick with it. Either way, shitty+shitty=ultramegaterrible.

For me I don't do much file swapping for 2 main reasons: 1. Time - I don't have much free time in the first place, much less to spend it downloading music, especially when the download rates from some sources are so slow. I need to spend some time finding out about a band first, and what better plac...

Thanks guys, some great suggestions. I have been wanting to buy that Stax boxset for a few years now, but my wife might have something to say about plunking down $175CDN ($25US probably) to do so. The 60's garage comp's sound interesting too, I will definitely check them out. And all the rest, thank...

Edmonton radio is the same as everywhere else, absolute shit. There are only 3 stations worth checking out: 1. CBC - our national public broadcaster, mostly news and info, but some music on weekends & a really good 4hr everything-to-do-with-pop culture show every Sat aft called "Definitely Not T...

The Datsuns rock!! Track #5 on their latest (and only?) album - the name escapes me - is amazing. Sounds like The Hives met Deep Purple on their way to an Iron Maiden concert. And I second the "Down with Steely Dan" comments. Are they bad white boy jazz or watered down AOR rock? Or both? I wish they...
