    The 'Bands I don't Get' thread

    i like THROBBING GRISTLE but have little interest in what Gen sang about or whatever they ideas tried to communicate. - i just like the music (same with THE PRUNES) how many bands make their own instruments or equipment ? 20 Jazz Funk Greats is a bit slick for my tastes alright. never...
