While I know a lot of the folks on this board are a bit beyond the loud and fast and louder and faster music thing, for anyone looking for a surprisingly decent little punk band to listen to when feeling a bit bitter I was tipped to Much The Same (muchthesame.com) and was surprised at the fact that not only did they not suck but had a couple of songs which were kinda catchy. They work themselves up into a pretty good lather and are solid live. I don't normally dig the whole punky thing, but they impressed me. So go give their best song a listen (artists.mp3s.com) and maybe even buy the album (a-frecords.com)
Heh. I dig on the fast and loud, louder and faster type of music. I've been listening mostly to the hard core bands on Jade Tree since hip hop turned into a carbon copy of the "indie rawk -> alternative" scene.
I'm checking out their stuff right now. You always gave me good recs during my first go around here at the 'Ville.
Hopefully the Yahoo folks overseas have the same sense of humour as the ones who ran the "Andy Kaufman Returns" story earlier this week. David Hasselhoff the rapper? I can take Shatner and I can take Nimoy, but this is a bit much...
