@MERG Cheers, the more detail the better! I doubt that I will ever see him, it is unlikely that he will come to the UK. I could always fly to the States, I suppose! You are right, Bob Mould knew how to craft great songs, plus I love his voice. Legend!

@MERG Do'h, he's sold out London, O2 Academy Islington for May 6th! Serves me right for being presumptuous! Like I said, I have so little spare time, I haven't even had chance to scout for gigs. I just had a feeling that he was not going to tour here, I will check your link more now. In truth, even getting the money together to travel to London would be hard at the moment. Never say never, though. Especially if I'm joking about flying to America to see him! lol.

I did not even know that he had this 'Granary Music' site dedicated to his tunes and tour dates: http://www.granarymusic.com/ Thanks for your link, the site has a blog link, too! :)

Maybe not the best Husker Du song out there, but still pretty good:

O.K...so Pavement is really more alternative than punk, I think it still fits the thread:

@Merg: a sad day indeed. :(

@The Fox I'm with you, Pavement are great, both quirky and original. I saw them in '97 in the States.

I was playing PS3 Red Dead Redemption last night and exploring its North East mountains inspired me to post this Dinosaur Jr. track. I was supposed to see them in Liverpool mid-May, but I was stuck in printing out my dissertation when they were playing. A few days later I spoke to my dissertation tutor and he says, "I saw Dinosaur Jr. and Built to Spill the other day, you would have loved them!" Ha, ha.

This is 1985 Dinosaur, before the Jr. I love that mid-'80s alternative rock sound, as bands like 'Hate Your Friends/Creator' era Lemonheads took inspiration from punk and Hüsker Dü, but created their own sound. This one mixes a metal verse intro, with later skate-punk riffage and has both Lou Barlow and J Mascis on vocals.

Red Dead Redemption is awesome, I was expecting dusty deserts and endless plains, but the diversity of its mountain landscape surprised me. I was tasked with hunting for boar tusks, when I first heard the deep growl of a grizzly bear. I don't hunt foxes though, they post too many class tunes! ;)

Anyhow, John Marston is a Mountain Man:

@odd69 Cool, I do not recognise all of the bands you have mentioned, but I have listened to lots of Pulley, NOFX and Bracket. Below is my favourite Pulley song, 'Hold On'. Nice one. :)

Cool! This thread might keep dropping, but it's always a treat when it pops back up. :)
Dinosaur Jr. is one of those bands I know little about (I never even knew about there earlier days!). I remember hearing one of there songs getting extensive play some time ago on the radio, but that's about it. I think I'm going to check out their other stuff after work today :). Oh, and great call on RDR! One of my favorite games this year.

Lets get started with some Buzzcocks.

Another oldie but goodie in Stiff Little Fingers. A punk band from Ireland? Works for me!

Keeping with an early punk theme, how about some New York Dolls?

LCD Soundsystem's awesome. They've got some great riffs, really clever lyrics and they're just a great band in general. Radiohead are also one of my favourite bands, but I've listened to OK Computer and Kid A so much now that I mostly listen to Hail to the Thief and Amnesiac :D

Me likey this thread!

Some of my favorite alternative/punk bands are Radiohead, Social Distortion, Green Day (don't laugh), Rancid, the Offspring, Joy Division, Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Hot Heat, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Killers (once again, don't laugh), and the Clash.

One band I've really been getting into lately is the National. I've been listening to "Anyone's Ghost", "Terrible Love", "Lemonworld", "Bloodbuzz Ohio", and "Afraid of Everyone" almost endlessly. They're probably the closest thing to Joy Division we'll probably get in this day and age.

I'd embed a video, but I forgot how to do that again...

@tambourine man...nice selection...in my opinion you really can't go wrong with the Fall. They are a permanent fixture on my iPod. It's nice to see other fans out there.
