Josh and QotSA are my two biggest contemporary musical inspirations, I really think that anything Homme touches turns to gold. Buuuuuuut being a 6'4" ginger with an attitude can make you a bit of a prick sometimes, there's no doubt about that with him.I REALLY loved pretty much QOTSA’s entire 2000’s output, but Josh Homme just would NOT SHUT UP. One of those guys who’s the smartest guy he knows, and confuses that for being the smartest guy there is.
He can’t run his mouth enough to make “Little Sister” not a great song, though.
If you haven’t yet, Oysterhead is worth a listen. Claypool/Anastasio/Copeland.My faves are Zappa, Buckethead, Devo, Godley/Creme, and the Residents, based on how much of their music I listen to or have listened to.
Honestly haven't listened to as much Primus as I'd think I would dig. That sucks. I really love the Lennon Claypool Delirium Project.
Did anyone mention The Ruttles?We all know that a lot of rock bands usually convey a more serious tone within their lyrics and music. So my question is what are some of your favorite bands whose lyrical or musical themes and moods are more of a comical or just straight up bizarre nature? 2 of my absolute favorites are Primus and an indie punk band I used to open for years ago called Pain. None of their songs were ever serious and with titles like Tommy the cat or bottlerocket war you know that its gonna be a fun listen.
I was just getting ready to mention that I hadn't seen anyone mention the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Neil's first professional group. They are one of the best comical bands I can think of. The Rutles were born from the Bonzo's being associated with part of Python with a "children's" show called Do Not Adjust Your Set.Did anyone mention The Ruttles?
Sadly we lost Neil Innes (Ron Nasty) last year. Great funny band who could all play!!
