    Let me say this

    I like Radiohead (sort of)
    I like Tool (sort of)
    I like Mars Volta (yeah)

    I've recieved a few PMs about my sig, because these are three bands considered holy to their fans. My reason behind this signature is that EVERY TIME I start a thread looking for new music that is prog/weird/spacey/awesome/odd timed/druggy/etc someone always says something like, "Have you ever heard of the Mars Volta..."

    Let me ask you... Have you ever heard of the Beatles? Led Zeppelin?

    I just got sick of people "introducing me" to these three bands... eh, maybe I should tack SOAD to the end....
     
  2. Yeah, definitely tack SOAD on to the end.

    This is like when someone feels the need to make a comment about my 6'7 height when first introduced. It's been done before, y'know?
     
  3. Have you heard of Wham! ?

    The Fall of Troy is a good prog/weird timed band , but its new age so its got that.. screamy backup vocalist thing going on.

    I miss the days when At the Drive-In was, "That band with the afros". Those were good days.

    PS: Matt, have you heard the Red Krayola? They're rather weird and druggy and jammy. But in a way that does not make me think of ripping small children limb from limb. Worth a look/listen.

    You are so cool. I wish I could be like you.
     

  8. Cool is not the right word. Cool is merely a fashion, and Matt Till is beyond fashion. Matt Till is a way of life.

  10. When Relationship of Command came out in my 7th grade year, I was totally weirded out by "One-Arm Scissor" but I just got the record a few weeks back and LOVE it! Spaz-prog.

    This thread makes me feel old. :meh:



    Um...You kids get off my lawn!






    Hey, Matt--have you ever heard Gong? With song titles like "Flute Salad," and "Wet Drum Sandwich," how can you go wrong? :bassist:

    Here's a line from their All Music entry:

    "Camembert Electrique contained the first signs of the band's mythology of the peaceful Planet Gong populated by Radio Gnomes, Pothead Pixies, and Octave Doctors."
     
  12. Only Matt Till can touch MC Hammer.

    Gong = Awesome!! Good call, I just got into them about a month ago, I'm still digesting all they throw at me. Insanity for sure.


    Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked the cool right outta me.
     
  18. I am not quoted in your sig, therefore, it loses points with me. ;)

    Hey, matt, check out cLOUDDEAD. Very unconventional. You were looking for trippy music, that is it.
