oh, I thought all fins were obliged to love kaksi kaksi pistipirrko. or jimi tenor perhaps.
the kinks are great. and I’m sort of at loss as to why I forgot that english group that went by the name of the beatles.
and pogues are truly kickass, at least when shane was still with them.
kings of convenience? wouldn’t figure you putting them as your favorites, being a snowboarder and allNovember 26, 2004 at 7:37 pm #106179
No Belgian bands mentioned yet
Dead Man Ray
‘t Hof van Commerce
….and how about Switzerland:
the Young Gods
the Sad RidersNovember 27, 2004 at 8:26 am #106180
I thought The Pogues were from England?
A couple of more I forgot…
Spain-Paco DeLucia(hey Aatos ever hear that Friday Night In San Franscisco album he did with Di Meola and McLaughlin?)November 27, 2004 at 8:58 am #106181
hmmm shane macgowan grew up in ireland at least, as well as some of the other guys in the group, but pogues were formed in england, so maybe that makes them english, not irish ?November 27, 2004 at 10:12 am #106182
US: Dinosaur Jr
UK: The Jam
i thought turbonegro broke up.November 27, 2004 at 11:21 am #106183
Ok, i should have put 22pistepirkko but i forgot it. Another great band from Finland is/was Kingston Wall. Too bad the singer jumped down from the roof of a church in Helsinki..
Actually i didnt remember any other bands from Norway.. I think there could be better bands in Norway than Kings of Convenience. When i was in Innsbruk last winter i saw a norwegian band called The Mormones and they were pretty funny! I spoke some swedish to them and they answered in Norwegian..
And The Kinks, i think its the best among the "british invasion" bands, or whatever they are called. I wonder why they arent ranked with The Who etc. My dad has almost every Kinks vinyl and now im listening to them, maybe my son will listen to it too.. haha..November 27, 2004 at 12:28 pm #106184
the Kinks are wonderfully brilliant I love are the british green preservation society Listening to it right now. The best Bside of any album.
The Mormones are cool. And a nice bunch of guys.
Anthony, TRBNGR was disolved/put on hold when the singer totally cracked due to his heroin addiction. It’s a great story, but a bit too long to tell for me right now. They reformed some years later when he had cleaned up.November 27, 2004 at 2:35 pm #106185
Can’t choose–because that would involve favoritism and downsizing due to style: pop, jazz, blues, alt, emo, rock, Musique Actuelle, classical, prog rock, hardcore, punk, folk, ambient, dark wave, r & b, trip hop, hip hop, rap, ragga, raggae, old school, dance hall, big band, etc… can’t do it. Can’t choose. also, past, present, or future? dunno.November 28, 2004 at 9:58 am #106186
The greatness of Turbonegro always eluded me… is there a tune I ought to check out that would convert me?
