Jimmy Bean

name the top five vocalists in your opinion and give reasons why:

Morrissey - the instantly recognisable voice that cuts through mixes and hearts
Steve Bays - just beautiful, and so dynamic
Jarvis Cocker - super-sexy and lots of charisma
Amanda Palmer - very powerful
Frank Black - nobody else can pull it off.

Hot Hot Heat - they're fun and quirky, great songs, intelligent (but not condescening) lyrics
Dresden Dolls - sexy, funny, clever and pretty
Joe Jackson - just a big influence, I guess. Really well written songs, great lyrics
the Grates - fun. catchy. clever. cute.
You Am I - good songs. totally original chord progressions. good lyrics.

The Pink Spiders are taking over. =P

think I'll help a band out today. ^_^
I went to Warped Tour Wednesday. The night before Halston in_thespotlight looked up every band that was going to be there that we'd never heard of.. and we found out about this band from Nashville, TN called the Pink Spiders. Yeah, I know. But, I like them.
Here are some pictures I took of them while they played.
Awkward time in elevators...Collapse )
