    I'll 2nd the compilation album for BJM. "Take It From The Man" is good, but I'd still go with the compilation because it does give a good feel for what they've sounded like; their sound has alot of variations in it. You have 95's Methodrone which had shoegaze influence in it, and then Thank God For Mental Illness which was folk. Anton can be quite the workaholic when he's getting along with his bandmates

    The Flying Luttenbachers.

    I heard a song of theirs on KXLU and I really liked it, can't remember what it was called.

    It's hard to go wrong with either of their first two albums: Songs the Lord Taught Us and Psychedelic Jungle. I also have a soft spot for Stay Sick!, which doesn't do anything new but is a whole lot of fun.

    Hmmm. I might have to do a "Young'Uns Guide" entry on these guys.

    Yes, you might have to! I don't really know the Cramps (heresy, I know) and could use a primer.

    OH, I know every note off Bad Music. I used to listen to that a ton, but for some reason I never really went beyond that.

    Transmissions From The Satellite Heart for the Flaming Lips. It's diverse, poppy, and not too overwhelmingly concept or oddity ridden while still exhibiting all of the band's key traits. Plus it has some of the best songs they've ever done.

    Don't start with Loveless for MBV. It's really dense and it takes you shifting your musical perspective to really see why it's raved about. I'd say start with the You Made Me Realise ep. It's short and therefore more easily digestible, and the title track is one of the most immediate things they've done.

    Start with Sound of Silver, but really if you don't immediately love Yeah (Crass version) then you probably don't like fun.

    That reminds me how much i love the Nick Cave/Warren Ellis film scores - both the Assassination of Jesse James and The Proposition scores are amazing. i need to get ahold of those. I have no memory of the score for The Road though, i was too busy being depressed

    This is probably my favorite Nick Cave song:



    It's a shame they never play it.


    EDIT* Now that I think about it, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is probably more accessible.

    In all seriousness, for the Greenhornes, I love their self-titled album. It's a pretty good approximation of what they are about.
