    Noticed that I listen to a lot(ish) of music. Theres a few bands that I just love like fuck alas this journalthing.

    Biffy Clyro

    Anyone whos came in contact with me since mid-June 2007 will probably know me of being borderline obsessed with this band. Bloody love em. Aggressive in songs like Eradicate the Doubt, melodic in songs like All the Way Down Prologue Chapter One and downright insane in There's No Such Thing as a Jaggy Snake. I love vocal harmonies and aggressive almost punky guitar riffs so I listen to this band religiously.

    Tom Waits

Started off folky, ended up playing the stuff you'd hear in a sleazy strip club circa 1950s New Orleans. Rain Dogs came along and exposed the bizarre influences he hinted at in Swordfishtrombones. That album is essential listening but most people would turn it off after hearing his vocals. …
