For anyone not familiar…

Super thread. Super.


Ah thanks!


Shame there’s no crossover between the tunes, I’m sure Soulwax could’ve fit in George Clinton maybe



Think the polling software might be a bit off. There seem to have been eighteen voters, but only four votes for Killing Joke. Can’t be right.


I’ve never heard a song by killing joke!

I know the song that rips off Nirvana but didn’t feel that was enough say that i like them

Here’s the above mentioned song that Nirvana ‘borrowed from’…


They’re one of my big favourites. Super intense heavy post punk stuff


Out of the bands that have received votes I’ve never heard any music from Monster Magnet, Bad Brains, The Cramps, The Sonics and The Butthole Surfers. Are any of these worth my time?

Yeah, they are all good…

Monster Magnet - post grunge/stoner rock:

Bad Brains - post punk/early hardcore mixed with reggae roots:

The Cramps - punk/psychobilly godfathers:

The Sonics - original 60s garage band:

Butthole Surfers - hardcore/grungey weirdness freaks:

Thanks. Will be investigating these today.

Always enjoyed this one (and the album it’s from) by Butthole Surfers.


If you don’t like this then I’m afraid your rock n roll licence will have to be revoked


Loved Barkmarket - first heard them on the Mesomorph Enduros Comp - brilliant compilation - quite brutal and dense

Side A
Cop Shoot Cop - Room 429
Melvins - Vile
The Jesus Lizard - Nub
Hammerhead - Louse
Helios Creed - Sister Sarah
Tad - Pig Iron
Foetus Inc - Incesticide

Side B
Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 - Nothing Solid
Laughing Hyenas - Candy
Drunk Tank - Hog Ditch
Pain Teens - Hands in Fire
Of Cabbages and Kings - The Reign
Barkmarket - Johnny Shiv
Unsane - Bath
Motherhead Bug - Blister


Mumdance & Logos (techno/UK bass/rave weirdos) also did a version of this track a couple of years back too.

I highly recommend their Spine of God and Superjudge albums, they’re both fuzzed out classics. The latter is one of my favorite discoveries of this year, I don’t know what took me so long.


I’ve been listening today. Really enjoyed what I heard!
