Default North Carolina is pretty much way cooler than wherever you live

Des Ark


Myspace



Des Ark's discography consists of 2 solo radio sessions, 1 full band full length, a 7" split with Bellafea, and a 12" split and collab with Ben Davis and the Jets. The full band and solo sets are pretty different from each other but i get something out of each which makes it even more appealing. From simple and pretty to pretty abrasive. I've only seen them live once it was a full band set at Bull City Headquarters with Hammer No More the Fingers and Yardwork. My favorite songs are Last Bastion of Worthlessness (the banjo one above), If By *** You Mean Totally ****ing Awesome then Yea I guess it's pretty ***, and Yes Sir Yes Way. Just check it out for yourselves.

You can listen to all of Loose Lips Sink Ships on Last.fm

And the second wxdu radio session here

Ahleuchatistas



myspace


This 3 piece instrumental math/noise rock band reigns from Asheville. They've released four studio albums to my knowledge. They're all really good I don't really have a favorite or anything. I made a thread on them a few months ago where I said "They kind of sound like a vague mixture of The Nation of Ulysses, Ultra Dolphins, June of 44 and Melt Banana, well, sort of. Some of their stuff is pretty progressive while other is pretty brief" For fans of Cinemechanica and Maps & Atlases. They're intricate, jazzy and fun.

The Future Kings of Nowhere



myspace


(kind of poor quality but whatever)

307 knox has nice folks because I got their s/t album just by asking and I was extremely excited to open up my package with promo copy stamped on everything, what did I care? -none, I popped in my cd player and listened to the 45 minutes of energetic pop-folk-punk, or some other made up genre, with blaring horns, musical saws and witty lines. FKON is Shayne O’Neill with a rotating cast of friends, on the album the girls from Midtown ****ens play trumpet and saxophone. I've seen them about 4 or 5 times and are the nicest folks in the world.

Cheltenham: a boring Middle England town famous for its racecourse and middle class twats with no common sense. Here are a few faces from this little town:

Jaz Coleman. Lead singer of Killing Joke:



Steve Cotterill. Manager of Burnley F.C. Went to school with my missus and asked her out. I think she messed up with me! (you can turn it off after a minute -its boring!)



Brian Jones who went to school with an ex boss. She said he was a right old tea leaf!



Holst born here:



I could'nt find any recent additions!

My freshmen year my school's marching band, which I happened to be in, did The Planets for their show.

The Fall of Troy
Minus the Bear

ENOUGH SAID, although I know there could be a huge list of bands from the Pac. NW.
