Right now I'm listening to Mando Diaos Hurricane Bar, because it happens to be my most recent music purchase. They're part of the 60s Pop/Garage Rock revival movement, and I find that I like them a lot more than The Hives or the White Stripes or anyone else who is part of the movement. Still, nobody beats the Exploding Hearts when it comes to Garage Rock revival.

/me must hear that.

I'm listening to The Bouquet. They never recorded anything but a demo tape, but I have a copy of that. They were cool, with Carolee's vocals being unique.. feminine without being girly. Pained but not self-pitying. Definitely an emo precursor though.



Have you checked out The Be Good Tanyas yet SE?  I highly recommend their album "Blue Horse."  Very folky, very earthy, a little gothic, lots of harmony, and just a great vibe.

Driving in the desert I heard a song that made me laugh. It's a punk song--the singing and style of music--but the lyrics sound like it should be a country song, and one refrain of it is done country style. I thought it was a cool mix of music genres. I googled it and the song is called "Ohio (Come Back to Texas)" by Bowling for Soup. Worth checking out.

well, what kind of music do you like?  That would determine whether or not you like them

I like everything but country and gangsta rap. Or at least, I've heard music from all other genres I could get into. I listen to a lot of punk and alternative. Bowling for Soup just doesn't do it for me.

I like everything INCLUDING country and Gangsta Rap, but only good Country (Which is White Man's Blues) and good Gangsta Rap (which is basically only Nerdcore Hip-Hop satires of Gangsta Rap)

they don't even SOUND the same. if you want to say that country and blues are the same, then  you might as well say that punk, pop, alt and mod rock are all the same thing too.

What, Punk, Alt, and Modern Rock are different?

=รพ

Just kidding, though I'm not really a fan of the modern rock collective supergenre.

Country and Blues DO sound the same.

Go and listen to The Backsliders, and don't come back until you have.

[08:19] e: dude, saying country and blues are the same is as retarded as saying that Pink Floyd is a blues band
[08:19] JP: Pink Floyd *IS* a Blues band

I suppose to keep my reputation, I have to point out how idiotic this response is. There is, at best, one album (Dark Side of the Moon) that is ARGUABLY a blues album, because it uses a lot of blues driven imagery and musical structure. Everything before and since has been much more psychedelia driven. The Wall comes closest to being another exception, but two albums in a 40 year career does not a blues band make, even were I generous enough to grant those two being actual blues album (and frankly, they're not).

The point is, ONE band that is cross-genre blues/country does not mean that all of country music is blues. It's not. The thematic material is substantially different. The rhythms are related but don't qualify as the same. The sources of inspiration and motivations diverge greatly. There isn't any reason to rationally say that country is blues and mean it.
