kimmo is apparently working on a project that involves traditional finnish grappling in the round accompanied by accordion that sounds awesomely batty

Ttrack with haunting/disturbing lyrics found on a 1993 Royal Bank Of Scotland cassette featuring demos of bands recorded at Edinburgh's Jewel And Esk Valley College. Little is known about the composer, the inlay card features no tracklisting or artist credits, though a brief introduction is given at the start of the cassette - although it doesn't appear to be consistent with the actual running order.

Enjoy the original sound before some douchey white boy sanitizes it and it becomes the next hipster fad. And by "some douchey white boy" I mean me, of course.

Can't find enough of "Why Shit So Crazy?" on YouTube, particularly A Future in the Future and Get Your Shoes On and Fields of Donegal but this should get you started

There's some great stuff on this thread since last I checked. Love Reggie Watts so much. I was never into the more rock elements of Maktub, but a bit of Googling helped me recall this band I saw once at Bumbershoot that floored me:

TRILON -- This all-star side-project (drum guru Michael Shrieve, Maktub's Reggie Watts, & Critters Buggin's Skerik & Brad Houser) plays like a supercharged search engine that's been expertly engineered to find lost grooves and breathe new life into 'em. Tesoro Bumbrella Stage, 5-6 p.m.
