    since we have a very international community i thought it would be cool to share some music that most members would be unfamiliar with. only two rules: 1 no mainstream BS and 2 stuff without much offensive content.

    some of my favorites:

    Strapping Young Lad (00's metal)

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwuReRw23_0

    Elevator To Hell (later renamed Elevator Through, 90's alternative)

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVX3LPrSEuY

    Rusty (90's alternative)

    comments so far:

    @lazy jack- peel the onion was annoying at first but it grew on me pretty fast. amazed that the two youngsters played so well.

    @shoot2kyll- i'm surprised i never heard of underhero before, it sounds like something the mainstream would pick up. Kissinger was cool too.

    @Dprinny- Big Elf rules! i have a friend with a huge cd/tape/record collection and i doubt he has any of them. i will reccomend it to him.

    @adtr123- we had the current metal scene discussion before and i will get back to that when i'm in the mood.

    keep 'em coming guys!

    Not really funny Blues stuff
    Theres a lot of rock stuff he does
    Burning Hell and Walking blues stand out as not really Blues (off the last album I listened to)

    Once the lead guitarist of my band's finger is out of his cast we should hopefully record some of our music

    Musically talentless people have two options.
    Pop Idol or Roadys

    That later is more fun.
    My self?
    I can play any instrument in existence.
    Sometimes what can be called a tune comes out.





    In saying that im a wizard on the cowbell
