    Super influential band that the last 10 years has completely forgotten about. Devin Townsend played with them for a bit and some of his earlier solo songs were collaborations with Ginger.

    Really unique band. Every song and album is really different so I'll post some stuff sneap forumers might dig. Wierd to think some of these were #1 in the middle of the britpop heyday. Pretty heavy all things considered.



    Same sort of vibe, has some Pantera like riffs towards the end:

    Just want to re-quote and thank Jeff... this album has been on my player non-stop for the entire year since this post. It really is an outstanding album of amazing depth and 're-listen' value. Take a bow, sir. :worship:

    Aaaahhh the Wildhearts. "Metallica covering the beatles" as was the common phrase to apply to them. They were (and I guess are) one of my absolute favourite bands of all time. 'Fishing for Luckies', 'phuq' and 'Earth Vs' are 3 stunning albums. Got a bit shit by the late 90s though.
