    I have now reached the point were I have listened to every song on my ipod a hundred and one times and I need new music to listen too.

    Hit me with some artist names and their best album for me to purchase at my local HMV or indeed, a myspace link - new bands or established bands, I don't care :-)

    Also, if anyone has any recommendations for any groovy Swing or Big Band albums, that would be wonderful! ;-)

    Cheers.

    For big band you have to have Count Basie - albums I'd recommend would be The Atomic Mr Basie and Ken Burns Jazz Count Basie.

    Duke Ellington is also a must- Ellington Uptown is great although he has got so many great albums to choose from.

    Comply Or Die - I have one of your tunes on a compilation CD I picked up at Auntie Annies one night, good stuff ;-)
    Stand Up Guy - Great Music, and an impressive list of bands you've played support to!

    Richard, what is the name of the CD you picked up and what track is it?

    Don't remember Comply Or Die being put on any compilations.
  21. avatar Richard
    My mistake, I got your CD along with a compilation CD from Lead Badger Records. Your CD cover is black with comply or die written in white?

    Um, no. It has a skull on the front, single has red squares.
  24. avatar Richard
    Well I got the CD about a year ago now. I'm nearly 100% sure it said Comply or Die, in white, in a kind of typewriter font. I'll have to look out the CD cover again! But, my bad if I'm talking balls here :-)

    I quite like this. Not the same vein but beat driven noise -

    Oh, thanks, happy that people like it.
    I've been working out how to do it live past while.

    Hey. The Lead Badger cd you are talking about was given out at a gig at Annies in January last year when they played with us and Before Machines. There is no Comply Or Die track on it. It was just a promo cd for some of the bands that worked with Lead Badger.
  29. avatar spirit of division
    Burn The Canvas are awesome.
  30. avatar Richard
    Strong Reaction - I found the Comply or Die CD I was on about. Black Cover, white writing with 'comply. or. die.' written in white, and the two songs on the CD are 'like a snake' and 'neagative two'

    I knew I had it somewere.

    P.S yeah Burn The Canvas are great, their guitarist (Travis) is the singer and guitarist of my band ;-)
  31. avatar Strong Reaction
    Ah ok, must have been a little promo for the album. Stick it on ebay, you might get n10p for it.

    On the subject of big band swing, I can reccomend Joe Jackson's "Jumpin' Jive".

    Despite looking like Uncle Fester if he'd melted in the sunlight, yer man Jackson can fairly swing.

    If you are looking for some contemporary Swing music you could check out David Lyttle (one ofthe best drummers about - anywhere). myspace/davidlyttlejazz and Mark McKnight (Ireland's jazz musician of the year).

    those songs have since been mashed up and slightly mastered.

    more to come and hopefully some shows.

    In terms of big band swing stuff, big bad voodoo daddy would be the only suggestion i would have, love their version of the coco bongo from the mask but the only local guy i would know of who does swing/big band stuff is a singsongwriter piano player called kevin brennan,

    check him out on mysapce at
