Maybe this isn't the kind of stuff punk kids listen to....but I really like this band Yello. I think they're Swiss or German or something, I never bothered to find out which All I know is, they write really mellow, smooth jams, ranging from goofy 80's vogue-style to just beautifully funky postmodern goodness. Good driving music, or just straight relaxing. Oh, and almost always quirky and insane.
Any other Yello fans here?
Obvious songs by them: Oh Yeah, The Expert, The Race.
Favorites of mine by Yello: Bostitch, I Love You, The Rubberbandman.
For all the things that I never did
For all the places I never was
For all the people I never stopped
But there was nothing I could do..."
