    Das Damen were a New York band from the mid `80s up to the early 90`s.One of them works now for Matador records.The record I have is ok but not that amazing,kinda early Soul Asylum meets Replacements sounding;they sometimes got compared to Dino but the only thing similar to J in the record I have is the use of the wah wah.
    Mean Red Spiders are a canadian shoegazer band,kinda MBV and Lush-ish.
    The Gathering are a dutch band,usually categorized as metal.Their singer Anneke has a cool voice,I`m getting kinda obsessed with them the last few months.

    Like SG said, the Gathering are Dutch, started as a kind of death metal band fronted by a Bjork-like singer, they turned a little goth later, and with each album they developed their own unique sound further, didn’t like them in their early days, but their latest album ‘Souvenirs’ is a very fine one (although it may be hard to find as it is released on their own label, after being kicked off major label earlier… :? )

    The Gathering`s Souvenirs is`nt hard to find here,I saw it just last week,still have`nt bought it yet.Anneke is`nt on their first two albums as DB said are more death metal.So far I have How To Measure A Planet(a double album and maybe their best)and Nighttime Birds.They have a new album out soon,a live acoustic album called Sleepy Buildings.The track listing looks great so I`m looking forward to that! :D it`s on their old label Century Media not their own(called The End).

    So far I’ve checked out Nighttime Birds and How To Measure A Planet. And liked them.
    I might have gotten my hopes up a bit too high when death metall were mentioned :) but her vocals were great and Mayhem are releasing a new album so I’ll get my fix anyways :)

    Cool! :D they stopped the death metal direction when Anneke joined.I heard they have a DVD available which would be cool to see :)
