Music. What's Cool and what Sucks.greenspun.com : LUSENET : Jon's Melange : One Thread
Who's "on the edge" of new music today? Why? What about old music? Any interesting trends? Disturbing trends?

Nope. Neve heard of "sparks." If it's 70's style groove rock, I just might dig it.
Lately I've been really digging the Sugarcubes. That Bjork is truly phenomenal, and the drummer isn't half bad either. Another thing on my turntable is Miles Davis' _Pangea_. That rocks. It is neither jazz nor rock, funk nor fusion. It's all of the above and more, pure Miles.

Sparks is a little like Jellyfish.....but sparks has a style all their own....

if you go to "track 8: with all my might" you'll find a listing of most of their lyrics......which are ALL great
there are also mpegs of some of their stuff.......haven't tried em out yet cause of my machine....and the fact that i have most of em on tape anyway : )
