If you really like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, then you should check out Scheer.

They were doing the same thing ten years ago. Two of their singles Shea and Wish you were Dead sound just like what The Yeah Yeah Yeahs do now but with much more clearer metallic guitars with less distortation.

Hogan11 06-16-2004 10:00 AM

I will check in to Scheer Fontaine, thanks for the reference...I've never heard of them before.

Funny thing about Kinks tunes IMO is that they make for even better covers...I like The Kinks and all, but I'm hard pressed to think of another artist who's covers by others are better than the originals...of course, that's just my opinion.

Ever hear the version of "I'm Not LIke Everybody Else" by The Chocolate Watchband?? ....That's my fave version of that song....I loved The Chocolate Watchband anyways...them and Love were two semi-obsecure 60's acts I got into heavily..great, great stuff.

FADERPROOF 06-16-2004 05:26 PM

I've really been into hard stuff lately, along with my regular dose of tool.

A lot of Swedish death metal along with other hard rock/metal acts such as Shadows fall, morbid angel, mushroom head, spineshank, mudvayne, of course some slayer, and some other bands out there.

That's very true. The Kinks had volumes of great stuff but they do make great covers.

You're right about the Chocolate WatchBand. Their cover of I'm not like Everybody Else is solid. I've tried to find more stuff by them but I know they didn't make a album as far as I know, just a bunch of singles that I haven't been able to source.

If you like that song then you should check out a new version by a dude called Monti Beton. The song featured during the ending credits of a Sopranos episode. I think it was newish one where Tony has all these issues with anger and his sister Janice goes into group therapy for the same thing after punching out another soccer mom during a game.

I know it's changing the subject but did you ever get into Creedence or Neil Young?

I really cannot think of anyone doing a bad Kinks cover right off the top of my head (ok, maybe The Stranglers but that's still a maybe...they push it Ha!), but I can think of many great ones...it's odd.

I discovered the Watchband like most everyone else did...in the early 80's thru Rhino's Nuggets series with the great "Are You Gonna Be There (At The Love In?). They released three proper albums and then a couple of anthologies and all have appeared on CD: No Way Out,The Inner Mystique and One Step Beyond are extremely hard to find now...you're in the UK or Ireland I believe, if so you stand a great chance of locating them (outside of eBay that is). IMO, The Rhino Best Of is by far the best of the lot...but you're better to locate the vinyl release from 1983 than you are the CD reissue because the "studio remix" nearly ruins the disc. (I consider the "remixed for CD" to be a curse here....like with Agent Orange's When You Least Expect It EP...the remix takes what once was a great record and makes it damn near unlistenable)...There's another compilation out there called 44, but I've never heard it, so I can't tell you about the sound quality.

Hope that helps...good luck and lemme know how you make out if you try to search for them.

Never heard that version...I gotta start watching that show...being into Mob movies like I am, I've never had the oppertunity to check it out.

Something about John Fogerty bugs me, always has...I can't put my finger on it. I was never really into Creedence as a result. I don't hate them or anything like that, they're just kinda there to me.

I find Neil Young to be extremely spotty. I love the usuals..you know Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Harvest & Tonight's The Night and use Decade to sum up the rest of that period....other than a track or two from a CD here and there, I haven't been really interested in his recent stuff since 1990 or so. I've seen him in concert a couple of times but I've never seen him do an electric show.

Currently in the CD players:
Home: John Williams, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (soundtrack).
Car: John Williams, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (soundtrack).
Work (mp3s): John Williams, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (soundtrack).

I know John Williams isn't for everyone, but if you like orchestra film scores you've got to check this one out. IMHO, the best he's done yet!

denfan -

I like metal, but it has to be good metal -

Sometimes i feel about metal like i do about rap - and there's too many groups/artists/bands/etc who just have a cliche or a gimmick and just recycle that -

Besides - just hearing 32nd notes (and i'm a drummer) get's old sometimes - maybe i'm more of a percussionist..

I enjoy listening to Rammstein lately. Some of their stuff can be over the top but a good listen nonetheless. I've always like RATM but I guess they've split now. I'm getting into System of Down though, especially some of the frenetic stuff they play. I've been meaning to listen more of Perfect Circle but having gotten into it yet.

Metal is metal to me, I like it all. It's mostly the drummers that keep me interested, I'm a sucker for double bass and mostly all of metal has them.

Never a RATM fan, although SOAD kicks ass.

Obivously by my sig I'm a big time Mudvayne fan, and love the hometown metal band of Mushroom Head as well.

A perfect circle, while not metal to me, is beautiful, anything Maynard graces is beautiful to me though but I do suggest checking out their 2 CD's.

Rammstein is very good, I like a lot of European metal like that, there's a few others from Norway and Sweden that are right up there with Rammstein. I'm still a big Korn fan and have been for a long while.

I listen ot a lot of music, if it's rock/hard rock/metal then I'm sure I'll like it.

I hear that, I'm also into a lot of "scandanavian" rock/metal. One of my favs at the moment is a punk rock band called Millencolin. They've been around forever, but their latest album, "Home from Home" is amazing. I would describe them as a better version than the Hives with more detailed riffs and edgier. Sorry, I don't play any instrument so that's the best I can do! Send me a pm if you want one of their mp3s for a looksie.

TheManeMan 06-23-2004 01:50 AM

Fontaine...I love Millencolin...my favorite album of theirs is Life on a Plate...awesome CD...Rep for anybody who listens to them...if you like them I would recommend listening to No Fun At All(the name was inspired by a tongue in cheek mixture of the Sex Pistols' version of the Stooges song "No Fun" and Sick Of It All's name), ...great band but, no longer together...their music is awesome...I think they are from Sweden as well...

I think the best cover versions of Beatles songs I ever heard were done by Cheap Trick.

I have several versions that are just godawful...I use them for torture at times Ha! Hard to say what the worst one is that I have...but I think it would be "You Won't See Me" by The Godz on Godz 2. Chances are good that no one here has or has even heard of this record or band. They were brutal, they couldn't play a lick and made no bones about it. I'd only recommend it to someone who actually likes things like The Shaggs, James Chance, No Wave in general or Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music...in other words...it's lease breaking/annoy the neighbors type stuff.

Heard of Millencolin, but I'm into a lot of punk rock. I have a cousin who is and that's how I heard of them, but never listened to their music. I'll probably get curious and download it off the internet to hear it, but not sure I'll like it if it's punk rock.

Oh yeah, and spineshank kicks ass also. That's another metal type band I've been into for over 3 years now. The lead singer recently left the band, but they are going through auditions right now, so they won't be breaking up and will still be spineshank, just with a new lead singer.

I seriously can't stop listening to Mudvayne's 2001 release "L.D. 50." God that is a great CD, End of all things to come is also great by them but I just love their older CD(back when they painted their faces and did cooler **** with their hair also, just a better band back then.)

www.alokedutta.com - good stuff

Mogulseeker 07-01-2004 03:50 AM

Ever listen to Josh Freese?

Just like Dave Weckl only with punk instead of jazz.

http://www.joshfreese.com/

Not only a simply amazing drummer, but a funny... halarious as hell... guy,

Josh Freese is the drummer to A Perfect Circle, Bad Religion, and the Vandals.

He has also recorded with Avril Lavigne, Puddle of Mud, The Offspring, Unwritten Law, Good Charlotte, Frank Zappa, Dwezil Zappa, Devo, Guns n' Roses, Juliana Hatfield, Rob Zombie, Suicidal Tendencies, Merideth Brooks.... many others.

He also has worked together with travis Barker (of Blink 182, Aquabats)

Pretty impressive track record as a drumer....

But his hilarious album "The Notorious One Man Orgy" is good drumming. I'd say he is the Dave Weckl or rock... only he plays with a lot of popular bands.

Here is a lyrical sampling...

----------

"Playboy mansion"

We all went to the playboy mansion,
Partied down with Marylin Manson,
I think my times arrived at last,
I'm high on cocaine, of Ms. October's ass

You don't believe me, but its true
You Dont believe me, and you dont have to,
It's not the kind of sh*t that I'd make up,

We all went to the Playboy mansion,
Met some chick with a tit expansion,
Saw the stupid car she bought,
And got a blowjob out in the parking lot,

You don't believe me, but its true
You Dont believe me, and you dont have to,
It's not the kind of sh*t that I'd make up,

Don't remmember about anybody there,
But we did get drunk with that Rodman guy, with the funny hair...

-----


It's punk music with great drumming. And with song titles like "I Kick Your Ass," "Rock 'N Roll Chicken," "Ass Backwards," "Queen Of The Gangsters," and "**** Mardi Gras!," you cant go wrong.

FADERPROOF 07-01-2004 04:39 AM

Freese is awesome as well.

Carey is still the best but there are a lot of great drummers out there.

Mogulseeker 07-01-2004 04:59 AM

IMO, Josh freese is the best rock drummer out there today... his solo stuff is a bit dissapointing, but its still really good.

Mogulseeker 07-01-2004 05:00 AM

Almost forgot... Freese has also played with Pennywise and the SKAdaddles too...

FADERPROOF 07-01-2004 05:18 AM

Coolest story on Freese was when I went to the APC concert in April, he had a broken right leg and all drummers know that the right leg is one that fuels the bass drum, so the guy played flawlessly with his left leg instead.

His drumset had the hi-hat on his right side so all his right foot had to do was hold down the pedal while his left leg played the bass drum, unbelievable that he switched like that and still played great.

FADERPROOF 07-01-2004 05:20 AM

I know I;ve been talking about them a lot lately, but Matt DcDough from Mudvayne can rock the **** out of a drumset. Dude plays so hard that during that videoshoot for their song "Dig" he put a damn hole through his bass.

Has a real nice set, lots of cymbals which is a big plus for me, and can just rock the hell out of it, which is really the big plus. Metal drummer rule and this dude from Mudvayne is right up there with the best currently.
