    Well, I’m glad I’ve heard of at least half these bands–and I think I’ve seen at least two :) of them in concert…

    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 all :wink:

    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 ?

    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! :D I spoke some swedish to them and they answered in Norwegian.. :D

    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..

    the Kinks are wonderfully brilliant :!: I love are the british green preservation society :idea: 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.

    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. :?:

    The greatness of Turbonegro always eluded me… is there a tune I ought to check out that would convert me?
