Black Davey, I wished I had you as a dad - since mine passed at an early age, he was in a hair metal rock band and OD'ed (dont worry, I'm doin' fine in life) but I wish I would have had him stay around longer and have had someone help me with music and love music as much as I do. But my mom listens to Paula Abdul and Country. I don't know how she got with my dad in the first place. You better bring that girl up right. It's a girl right? They better listen to the best damn music ever. I like most of the music you listen to - I've never come by babyshambles before... so I can't crucify you like the rest of this lovely lot, but I love the White Stripes and yeah, you seem to have a good head on your shoulders. Gotta appreciate the old man with an appreciation for new music.

Surely you see the hypocrisy there...?! While I'm not in the US, surely the bands you like are much more available Radio/Mtv?!

Also - as for babyshambles, they are a 1 trick band (well, not really any tricks except for being a junked up f**k head...) and you only need to hear 1 song of theirs to hear ALL of their songs and you know it! Again, heard the album, seen them live... they are utter ****e. I know you weren't so rude about dcfc (and I apologize) but it must be said about babyshambles... Not an original bone in one of the band members bodies and I wish people would stop supporting them so he could get himself sorted out and get back in a chip shop (never to bore anyone with his 'music' again)... Darkness I've had the same arguements with some (older) guitar friends from work... They think he's 'fun' and 'in the spirit' of some of the bands they used to like. Well.. i never liked those bands to begin with and certainly want nothing to do with another completely unoriginal band rehashing other peoples songs...

Anyways, we can agree to disagree on these few bands - lol. looks like we agree more than not once you list more than your top 5

Adidasss - Tom Vek and Ryan Adams I've not heard yet.. thx for reminding me to get those (as I have a sneaking suspicion I'll think they should be in my top 50 list)
ok, cold roses is definetly in the top 5 of last year so yeah, you should definetly check that out, as far as tom vek is concerned, the album as a whole isn't that great but i put it on the list because 3 songs are absolutely off the charts for me :c-c you set the fire in me, ain't saying my goodbyes and green lights, and being a fan of indie electro, i have a feeling you'll like them.....and i haven't seen clor on your list, nor aqueduct.....both awsome indie electro....

have got The National, Clor and Aquadect now and all are amazing!! None of them 'hit' me right away which is a nice change (i'm usually very quick to make up my mind on bands). Have got tom vek too but not had time to listen.

The National in fact are sending me their cd (actually, it's beggars banquet - and they are sending other cd's too - score!)

Working on a remix of Friend of Mine as we speak... just got ableton and messing around with it as that song I thought the structure could be better/different...

anyways - you can me recommendations to me anyday!!

They are straight up indie. Some songs a bit weird, some a bit acoustica... just get it - i promise it's good!

Tom Vek - got to them finally... the three songs mentioned (c-c you set the fire in me, ain't saying my goodbyes and green lights) are OK... but just OK...

what do you mean by americana? Wilco/Califine etc? if so I would not put them in the same boat... honestly - straight up indie (or REAL indie)... whatever you want to call them you WILL like them!

Why does everyone rank Anthony and the Johnsons so highly in the top albums. I heard a few of their songs and they're not much to brag about, although the lead singer has mighty vocals.
