I enjoy Cage the Elephant, The Dead Weather, and Micko Macka Jin Jin Blouse. Do you want my still-beating heart or my first-born child?

I'm friends with Kai the bassist from Hard-Fi. We jammed a few years ago, I played drums which was fun. I think they've just been dropped by their label. probably a good thing because it was a major and that's never a good thing in this day and age.

Exactly! They are a-ok in my book.

In fact Black Keys are playing at the Rose Garden in Portland Oregon, which is one of the biggest places around here. Frankly I am surprised they have a big enough fan base to play there, but I guess they do. (Usually only like Van Halen and KISS play there)

Some other good bands out there I am kind of liking are Yuck and Pains of Being Pure of Heart.

Also I like Lana del Ray! She is like the Fiona Apple of the Millenial Generation and even though others burn on her all the time I think she is cool.

They have some skills.

From the admittedly little I have listened to them I have heard them sound like The Cure and then sound like The Smiths on the next song... dang that would take some serious skill to pull off. 8)

agreed all those bands suck hard. alternative music died when alt. metal and lollapalooza failed because of nu metal bullshit like korn.

Wish there was a band like RATM or Faith No More today. Not Nu Metal, we already have that.

I just wish Faith No More was still more active (making new music, playing gigs at my house constantly etc.) but I'm glad they're around nevertheless!

Shanze, they are adding new European dates at the moment so keep your fingers crossed they will add a Finland date.

As for a new album, I would love that and I think they would do a great job but from all the stuff Patton has been saying it doesn't look like they will do it. Would be amazing if off the back of all these performances with Trey Spruance, they did a couple of tracks featuring him. Apparently Patton invited Jim Martin to play the whole of Angel Dust with them but he refused. That would be worth a watch!
