I went and watched 4 or 5 of their videos. Very interesting, I really liked the music, I'm just not sure abut the singing though. I got a bit of a shock when he started singing 5 minutes into the song. 8/

I was gonna pick up a cd of theirs yesterday for $2 in the bargain bin. I didnt. Should i have? What are they like? I only know em by rep....
$2?!? YES YOU SHOULD HAVE!!!

I would glad pay $30 for either of their albums that I already own. For $2 you should buy it. You won't regret it.

This is White Walls - @2.20 they play what I think is one of the best guitar riffs this decade. Everyone should get the album Colors by BTBAM, it's lots of fun and kicks lots of ass.

You and I have very similar music tastes Arctopus.

Gang of Four has re-recorded their first album, "Entertainment" - Sort of the ultimate. self referential tribute band - but good. Apparently they didn't like the bass sounds in 1980 and have beefed up the rhythm section sounds in the new recording, otherwise it's pretty much the same. The release I have has a second disc of remixes.

am really getting into local reggae band Kingfisha. Good clean reggae, good songs, well sung, bottom heavy. Saw them at Island Vibe, and I just had to shake the sound guy's hand cos of job well done.
