Yeah, like the title says, if there is a local band you really enjoy and want others to know, post them here.

All of the local bands here suck ass. They are all either:

A.) Nirvana rip-offs
B.) Boring emo
C.) Stupid generic "alternative metal".

Plus, every single band here does a cover of "867-5309" and every time I hear it I want to hurt someone.

If you don't like me, just block me and stop whining about it. ;)

Really cool old school Rock n Roll band from my town, I played a battle of the bands with them last weekend and I sincerely hope that they win. They fucking rule.

EDIT: Messed up the URL, but now it's fixed.

I have some friends who are forming a classic rock band. I haven't heard them yet, but I'll bet they'll be good with some practice.

You are saying that EVERY single local band in your city/town sucks? I find that incredibly hard to believe.

*whew!* I thought I was the only one who thought that! Please leave. Nobody likes you.

I'm lazy, I know. I might post some Jean Leloup if some of you like that.

Congradulations, you can read.

Yes, every local band here that is currently playing shows sucks. Given, that's only around 7 or 8 bands, but there's not one good band in the bunch. However, like I mentioned, a few friends of mine are forming a band, and I know that as seperate musicians, they're all very talented, so together they should make a good band.

Hey! You didn't contribute! Awesome!

As for my local bands, I don't know of any that actually do original stuff. There a bunch of 'bands' that get together and cover stuff, and that's about it.

There is another band I knew (before they broke up) called Under*Go that pwn3d the shit out of all of these other guys. I'll upload some stuff later. Man, I am so glad I saw them live 4 times before they broke up. They were incredible.

I was about to go search on my myspace for some local bands

http://www.myspace.com/fadedgreyband

My family is really good friends with the lead singer's family.

There's only one song on their myspace right now, but they're in the process of recording a demo.

Not really 'local', but they're Dutch and none of you know them; Green Lizard.

The only local band I know of is Skit i det (http://www.skitidet.com/main.php). They played at my school once, and I thought they were alright. They look pretty gay though.

*whew!* I thought I was the only one who thought that! Please leave. Nobody likes you.
I actually like him. He's one of the better posters in GOD.

Dunno if they're good or not, but here's some bands from Wigan...

Noon Layer Drive- www.myspace.com/noonlayerdrive

Avarice- www.myspace.com/avaricewigan

Anti-Chamber- www.myspace.com/antichamber

I would look into some of the above-mentionned if there were brief descriptions... these bands are all awesome in my opinion:

Indie pop rock from Toronto:

http://www.myspace.com/meligroveband
Listen to: Our Love Will Make The World Go Round

http://www.myspace.com/thegoldendogs
Listen to: Yeah!
Listen to: Never Meant Any Harm

More from Toronto:

http://www.cufftheduke.com/
Listen to: No Sleep, No Heat for "saloon ivory-tinkling and proggy art pop"
Listen to: The Ballad of Poor John Henry for "straight-up hoedown"

"Alt country" is the classification, but I like this review:

Their second album is an explosion of saloon ivory-tinkling and proggy art pop, with a few straight-up hoedowns thrown in. Though they're sonically all over the place, CTD manage to pull off most of their genre-jumpin' experiments. You've gotta love a band that busts out an Elton John-style soft-rocker about the effeminate hetero indie boy's gay/not gay conundrum, swings haphazardly through cantering surf-country about evil corporations and caps it off with a power ballad.

More indie pop from a little city beside Guelph:

Listen to: Virginia Black, Just Like the Movies, You Could've Been My Johnny Marr

Ok, the bands mentioned in my post earlier

Noon Layer Drive are a Grunge band apparently.

New Breed are a Papa Roach kind of band.

Avarice are screamo.

Anti-Chamber are a metal band.

Still haven't listened to them just got the description from the same site.

I could have guessed the genres from some of those band names... and I must have guessed right cause I'm not particularly interested in any of those genres.

No offense to them... I'm sure not everybody is into my happy dancin' music either.
