Hi, Clif, nice list...we have lots of stuff in common, I see. (I think yours will be the only other list I see this year with Experimental Aircraft on it, but what a good record, eh?

Also, King Khan, nice...have you seen him live? It's pretty great.

Hope all's well and merry Christmas!

Thanks Jenny. It's sad that Experimental Aircraft will probably only be on our lists :( It's so much better than say, Fleet Foxes or Vampire Weekend which seems to have made just about everyone's list.

King Khan and BBQ Show played at the Mohawk three weeks ago. Always a great show :)

Cheers! And have a great X-Mas.

If I make a list Experimental Aircraft will definitely be on it, but I've got stuff coming in the mail that will likely alter my top ten. And I can pretty much guarantee Pierced Arrows makes my list and I haven't heard all of it yet.

Damn Clif, right when I think I know a few bands I read one of your posts and am reminded of my ignorance. Which I will attempt to remedy with a drink in my hand.

Thanks for all the recommendations. And you and Jen celebrate Christmas? I thought you were pagans. Probably just crashing the party.

Cheers,
Rob

Thanks, umm, Cliff! Gonna listen all that. Even the cover pics promise great findings. At first sight especially love the japanese not giving a shit 'bout they are japanese or whatever and just making music))))
