    As we all know, Mikael is really into obscure bands from the '60s and '70s. Lately I've also started to listen to some of them, and was wondering if some of you could tip me about some of the bands that you (or Mike) listen to. :)

    At the time of writing I've allready bought cd's from Comus, Camel, 13th Floor Elevators and a couple of others. So a few more would have been great :headbang:

    Many of these can be previewed on iTunes. I liked Hoelderlin and Cactus very much.

    Didnt he mention Unicorn in an interview? They did a couple of albums in 70's with David Gilmour as producer and as a guest on pedal steel guitar.

    Beautiful stuff anyway :)

    Some good bands you've listed here, thanks! :)
    But just another quick question, I'm trying to get my hands on a Camel shirt, but can't find any. Someone know where I can find one?

    (I've seen those on their official site, but I don't like them so much)
