    I posted these guys a couple weeks ago.

    The Soundtrack of our Lives

    This is just a Killer band that i have been a fan of for about 10 years now.They seem to get little attention.....and i don't know why.
    The Soundtrack of Our Lives - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    They are a Swedish rock music band that play very well chosen instruments from my favorite era of music. The 60's and 70's. Fuzz- guitars,Backwards tracked-guitars,harpsichords,harmoniums,xylophones,mellotr ons,early model synths.
    All played very organically and by hand. These guys can play. A beuatifull blissed out sound that is informed by the best psych era music. The lyrics are sung in english as filtered through a swedish perspective, which leads to "Interesting" results.
    Any way....i have all of there cd's.....and you can't go wrong with any of em'.
    There latest release is called Communion {Nov.08'}, and is a FAB record. Check em' out if you dig good music.

    Some tracks:

    Mantra Slider:
    YouTube - Mantra Slider - Soundtrack of our lives

    Sister surround:

    Big Time

    Showing my age, again. The only "band" I recognize from morsecode's list is Pat Metheny. Somehow I've ended up with all of his recordings. Nothing like listening to Off Ramp while driving late at night down a single lane road to the get to the beach in Baja Sur. So, I suppose I'm not totally square.

    Supreme Beings Of Leisure - Their debut album is just pure bliss.
    Mandalay - Ditto.

    ... perhaps, Saint Ettiene?

    Well, the point is to get some bands that I haven't heard before and check them out.

    Thank you, will check them out later, right now is nighty night.

    Hey, anyone who listens to Metheny can't be square. :cool:

    set your goals
    have heart
    four year strong
    a day to remember
    brand new
    matt & kim
    parkway drive
    daggermouth
    sage Francis
    and that's all I can think of right now. Most of those are punk/hardcore but worth a listen to if you like different music types.

    Deffinately check out matt & kim's song lightspeed if you like experimental type music.

    A wacky San Francisco band called Enrique. Were popular in the 90s. Issued a CD "Cut The Cheese" around '94 or 5. Terrific fun live! Bizarre medleys (example: Islands In The Stream/Mr. Roboto).

    They also wrote/performed in three plays.

    Oh yeah, and PSB's (Pet Shop Boys) mostly instrumental soundtrack for "Battleship Potemkin" Extremely hard to find on CD (never released on DVD), but worth it to find. Has been the soundtrack to my life for the past month!

    This fellow tried making his own YouTube version (in several parts):

    Love that soundtrack. Did you watch the concert at Trafalgar Square? I would've loved to have been there.


    My favorite band is Stereolab, and I'm perfectly happy that they're not big hit makers.

    I love about half of your list. Particularly Guthrie, as I've pointed out before. Guthrie is IMHO the best rock guitarist alive

    Opeth
    Meshuggah
    Frederick Thordendal's Special Defects
    Allan Motherfucking Holdsworth
