So /tc/ has a favorite album, a favorite song and a favorite music video thread, but there is a complete lack of the cliche "top 5 bands" thread (it used to be top 3, but I realized it's not happening), and as such, I hereby take things into my own hands and make the thread.

1. Modest Mouse
Favorite album: This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About
I can't even begin to profess to you my love for this band. There's just something about their general style that clicks with me. It's like, I've never had a band I feel this much love towards. They have such a unique sound - You can identify their influences, sure, but you'd be hard pressed to find an album that sounds like Long Drive. It's no exaggeration to say they're all I listened to this summer. I've almost heard every single thing they released, and found that I like every single song - I used to really dislike their stuff after The Moon & Antarctica, but then I tried out Good News, and then it was "I hate everything after Good News", and then I tried out We Were Dead, and so on. Favorite band of all time, no doubt. The OP track is from their very first demo, and it's like magic or some shit. Although it's one of the few tracks I actually like from Tube-Fruit...

Favorite album: School Girl Distortional Addict
Number Girl is undeniably special to me, as I've said time and time again. It's just something that I love about their music. It has that swagger. Mukai is easily one of the strongest songwriters I've heard in my life. Zazen Boys just serves to further that opinion, although it took a while longer for me to get into.

3. Merchant Ships
Favorite album: I Want To Forget Everything Bad That Ever Happened, Ever
These kids are the coolest band from the midwest. Hands down. Also one of the most consistently good bands I've heard in my life. Every release is special in it's own way. That can't be said for Snowing, Hightide Hotel, Algernon (well, yeah it can), or any of the other midwest emo bands.

The order doesn't matter since I can't decide who my "absolutely" favorite band is

Favorite album: Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
The best black metal had to offer, with a rich, powerful atmosphere, every Burzum album is an unique experience. I don't like the post-prison albuns though.

Favorite album: Drawing Dawn The Moon
The best of both "bestial" black metal and ambient music, and is one of the few classic bm bands that still releases quality material.

-My Blood Valentine
Favorite album: Loveless
I don't what to say other than this is amazing

-City of Caterpillar

1. William Basinski
Favorite album: 92982
Music from another world. He manages to capture longing in musical form.

2. Rome
Favorite album: Flowers From Exile
Jerome Reuter is the strongest songwriter I've ever heard. His is a kind of music that makes me feel like I'm living a thousand years ago.

3. Moving Mountains
Favorite album: Pneuma
My favorite album ever. Thematic album about the earth, the sun, and love.

I have a ton of favorite artists but I'll try. (in no specific order)

1. Oval
Favorite album: 94 Diskont
Favorite song: Do While (24 minute version because of the length but I like the style of the Apple X version better)

Do While -

I love Oval's cold, glitch soundscapes. They feel like they are combining something natural with something modern. The track Do While means a lot to me, to me it's the sound of tranquility. No matter how bad things get it will always be there to comfort me in its cold but peaceful darkness. A lot of tracks from Oval got me through tough times in life.

2. Microstoria
Favorite Album: _snd
Favorite Song: Sleepy People/Network Down

Sleepy people/Network Down - (you will need to turn it up a bit since the quality on this video is bad and it's a quiet song with a lot of small detail. You can easily find it in 320 mp3 online or on soulseek)

1. Badfinger
Favorite album: Wish You Were Here (also my favorite album of all time)
Just... wow. Their entire output is perfect. There are exactly 0 bad songs or albums. They somehow managed to write some of the most depressing lyrics of all time and fit them with poppy melodies and stuff. Amazing. It sounds cliché, but work with me here; Pete Ham (their lead songwriter) also indirectly has saved me countless times. I often experience extremely suicidal thoughts, and then I think, literally, "If I end it all, there's no going back. No more Lonely You . I will never experience Dennis again. Maybe it isn't worth it..." [italicized = song by Pete Ham]. He has thus become my namesake on most forums I visit. His impact alone on my life and the way I live has been greater than any other human's, and I can say that with 100% assurance. But it's a bit of a problem for me, because I know that no matter how hard I try, or how much pain I go through, I'll never be able to match his abilities. The coda at the end of Song For a Lost Friend has made me cry, both because it is simply that mind-blowing, and because of the aforementioned reason. I lack the dedication, intelligence, and most of all, raw, natural talent that Pete had. I probably love Badfinger beyond their own merit as a group, but damn it, I love them.

2. The Replacements
Favorite album: Tim
No comment necessary.

3. Captain Beefheart
Favorite album: Lick My Decals Off, Baby
Honestly? A lot of people will tell you they like Beefheart because of how he "revolutionized" whatever, but I love him because his music is fun. That's it. Trout Mask Replica is simply fun to listen to.

4. Can
Favorite album: Tago Mago
There's just "something" there. I can't say what. It's so subtle that I barely notice it's existence, but there's just something about Can that makes them so easy to enjoy, even when they're doing stuff like Peking O.

I've always preferred The Move, but Kick Out the Jams and High Time are definitely great LPs.

Also, ever heard of The Royal Trux? Band from the 90's that essentially took all the noisiness/dissonance of all those hard-psych bands and magnified it times a billion.

>> No. 1598 [Edit]
>My only real complains with the Beatles are that they're given way too much credit for stuff they didn't do.
Yes, this. I've even had people tell me that they "invented" the concept album.

Funny that this discussion has popped back up, as I posted >>1440, then forgot about this for a while, and then a couple of weeks ago tried listening to some Beatles again after a guy played the Let It Be album at work. I still don't hear whatever it is that everyone else hears. Oh, but they've influenced EVERY BAND that's come after them. Whatever.
Back to the broader subject of dadrock, I'm surprised no one's mentioned Neil Young. He has some songs that I really love, but I've only made it through a fraction of his discography. And I'm normally not much of a fan of lenghty guitar solos, but his leads are just so ragged and emotive.
>> No. 1599 [Edit]
What I've heard of Royal Trux doesn't really do anything for me. Thanks though.

Speaking of psych, ever hear of the Japanese band Les Rallizes Denudes? They shared the early MC5's belief in "total cultural assault".
>> No. 1600 [Edit]
Yeah, I actually have their LP "Mizutani". Not one of my absolute favorites but still really good.

Folks, I'm going down to St. James Infirmary
See my baby there
She's stretched on a long white table
She's so sweet, so cold, so fair

Let her go, let her go, oh bless her
Wherever she may be
She will search this wide world over
But she'll never find another sweet man like me

Now when I die bury me in my straight-leg britches
Put on a box-back coat and a stetson hat
Put a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch-chain
So you can let all the boys know I died standing pat

I've always loved the sound the sound of rock and punk rock, especially when the music was upbeat and or happy. But the lyrics I hear all end up know. CRRRAAAWWWLLLING IIINNNN MY SKIIIINNNNN THESE WOOOOOUND THAT DOOOO NOT HEEEAAAAALLLLL. The only English band I know that is not like that would be Less Than Jake. The Pillows are sort of like this, but that's in Japanese.
Right, so I guess what I am asking is this: Please give me some happy, upbeat rock music that also has some happy, upbeat lyrics to them. Please and thank you!

This is such a weird question because:
1. "Rock" is an incredibly vague term and I have no idea what you actually mean by it.
2. There is a plethora of happy punk music that I'm not sure why you would be having trouble finding it.

Didn't find a music documentary thread.

This has pretty terrible quality, but it's interesting if you're into the industrial/post-industrial scene. It's called "The Sound of Progress - Pop Music according to Foetus, Coil, Current 93 & Test Dept"

There's no thread for music videos. Like, just straight up music videos. I figure I can kick it off with three. Two of which are from my favorite band.

Number Girl - Toumei Shoujo

This one is awesome because Mukai (guitar + vocals) drew the comic parts himself.

Number Girl - Touch

Personally, this is my favorite music video of all time. I don't know what it is about it.

Even if you're not into it, this video gets really interesting after the halfway point. The song is great, too.

Does anyone know where the melody of this song is from?

My guess would be that it's just Rita and Etsuko making fairly similar sounding music.

I suppose you're fairly positive it's not original, then?

I don't come on anywhere near as much as I would have liked this year, but shit got real with studies and work. In return, have a christmas present.
On that soundcloud is pretty much everything I have recorded this year, bar some that I have yet to edit. Happy Holidays everyone on Tohno Chan. I love you all.

I still have the Tohno-chan song saved my computer. I dedicate this song to when we first put up the users online thing, and everyone would stress over people being online but not posting.

one step forward
two steps back
i left my old home
i ain't neve going back
it started with a bro on the ghost board and
he name-dropped a site called a tohno-chan

and all through the day
i've been, f5'n away
no new posts but my spirit stays true
the buzzards circle 'round but i still lurk you
