Some legendary bands mentioned here, and I've been fortunate enough to see many of them perform live - the Stones back in 98 during their Bridges to Babylon tour, Page and Plant (Led Zep) in 99, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd on two occasions, during his Dark Side of the Moon tour in 2008, I believe it was, and the Wall a few years back... BUT, you guys do realize UK music post 1980 also exists, right? For example, my girlfriend's favorite two bands are Oasis and Coldplay - probably the most popular bands of what is known as "Brit Pop", while I myself prefer electronic and trip-hop sound from the UK, including bands such as Faithless, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, Asian Dub Foundation, Depeche Mode, Radiohead and the likes... I also like some of the 80's and new wave music from the UK, including The Cure, Stone Roses, Joy Division, New Order and such... Then there is Iron Maiden, The Clash, Muse, Bush... Well, I could go on...
I'm looking for some 70's style Cadillac side mirrors for a couple of my future Jo-Han projects... I could use a couple of sets (4 mirrors), preferably from the Revell Cadillac custom lowrider kit, or any others... I have stuff to trade. Please PM me if you can help. Much thanks in advance MATIJA
Anyone interested in some obscure stuff? Okay then, how about some bands from the countries of former Yugoslavia? To begin with, one of the most interesting currently active bands in this part of the world has to be Laibach. They are a Slovenian avant-garde, industrial, neo classical dark wave band who perform in the Slavic languages of former Yugoslavia, English and German (their name is the German name of Slovenian capital Ljubljana, which was official during the Nazi occupation of Yugoslavia)... They have been around since 1980 and have toyed with contoversial topics/themes through new/diverse music styles ever since... They are often credited as a major source of inspiration for Rammstein among others, and are in-fact referred to as "Rammstein for adults", but have remained on the verge of worldwide commercial success due to their often shocking fascist-not-to-say-nazilike getup (yes, even more so than Rammstein), and your first impression may be that they support the worst sort of dictatorial/totalitarian regimes, but please rest assured it is all meant to be ironic and the more you get into the band's work the clearer it becomes (interesting trivia, however, is that they recently actually performed in North Korea as the first western band ever to do so!)... Without further ado, here are a few examples of what they do (the first few are from their most recent album Spectre), but check out more for yourselves... It's certainly an experience!
Providing you like a heavier, more modern rock sound, another great German band that performs in the English language are The Guano Apes... I also like the punk-rock band Die Toten Hosen, but their songs are in German. There is also Alphaville, with their huge hit Forever Young.
There are so many great European music groups, but to stick to the ones that perform in the English language, I'd have to mention Within Temptation - a Dutch symphonic metal band with amazing female vocalist Sharon den Adel, and Swedish punk-rock band Millencolin... Of course, I also always keep mentioning the Croatian surf-rock band The Bambi Molesters on this forum, but it's because they really are a fantastic band
Huge respect to everyone involved in making this concert a reality... I saw the Stones once as a 13 year old kid during their 1998 Bridges to Babylon tour, and to this day it has remained one of my favorite concert-going experiences
