Welcome to Gaia! ::

I love "God's Magic Finger" by The Residents, it has a really trippy sound. Anything else like that?

Okay,okay...

Are there any other saccharine sweet, yet dirty punky powerpop bands along the lines of:

the Exploding Hearts


out there? Please please please tell me that kids are still out there making music this good. And don't give me "nice boys", 'cause it's just not the same.


The Nils maybe?
also, some Kimya Dawson / Antsy Pants ("Vampire" ) -esque things?

great track

I freaking love The Residents heart
Alright, long story short, my a** is going to France this spring and I need some typical French music or any French teenager's typical music list.

So far I have stuff along the lines of:
AIR
Beirut (meh)
and
Kocani Orkestar

Any kind of french music would do fine...
Atom Heart Mother Suite

aren't Beirut American?


from what I know from my friend who's French and spends at least two months there a year, hip-hop is quite popular. So along those lines, Diam's is good.



also, Justice are French, but I have no idea of their status in their native country.

Yes, they are, but I'm assuming that a typical French kid might relate to them. Er.

Oh good! So I'm set then. Must look up some French rappers.

Must also look into Justice as well.

Cool bands, however they're all much more firmly rooted in the ramones-screechingweasel/queers school of pop punk. I was looking more for like:

If cheap trick & the bay city rollers smoked a bunch of crack cocaine, and were half deaf from playing extra loud and distorted cause they were all ******** up... got in a friendly rumble with the dead boys. Yeah. Something like that.
