No joke, I actually used to be in a metal band called Van Winkle.

RE: Looking for fans of Prog rock
I grew up listening to the Phil Collins era, and suffice to say I've become so sick of him that it's hard to make a 100% unbiased judgment.
But albums like Foxtrot, Nursery Cryme, Selling England and the Lamb (although it's a bit overrated) piss over 80s Genesis.
And that's not even considering Peter Gabriel's solo career.
RE: Sonic Youth
My favorite band of the 80s and maybe the 90s. I really hope Thurston and Kim's divorce doesn't mean the end of the band.
In order of greatness I'd rank their stuff from the 80s/90s period as:
A Thousand Leaves
NYC Ghosts & Flowers
Bad Moon Rising
Experimental Jet Set
Confusion Is Sex
I'm not familiar enough with their 2000s material to rank it.
RE: Post-punk is realy cool
Music forum = Mr. Evil comes running back to ARLONG PARK
Anyway, my vote's for New Order, been listening to them a lot recently and really clicking with it.
Joy Division are also great, and had more consistent quality than NO (of course they also had a lot less material in total).
But combining both into one option? No contest.
RE: Billy Joel - SING US A SONG YOU'RE THE PIANO MAN
I grew up listening to Billy Joel; my parents were both huge fans, so this is a thread I can get behind.
The Stranger is probably my favorite album, but his entire run from Turnstiles through An Innocent Man is pretty much brilliant.
For sure one of the best pop songwriters ever.
And I've fucking seen him live.
RE: National Coronation Day Thread Part Two
I guess I'll join the party then. I'd always thought Dan was an unfunny, tyrannical douche and I couldn't be happier that he's gone.
I really thought he was that influential that his actions were the forums collective anger
This is one of the reasons I rarely posted on NPC for a while, I was reluctant to express myself on certain issues because I was afraid of modfucking, mass negging, etc.
