Are you familiar with a Nashville band called "The Mattoid"? I met them a couple of weeks ago, and thought they were just the bee's knees. Just wonderin' what you thought of them.

yeah, i played a show with them a little over a year ago. i hate them. a lot.
but one of 'em occasionally plays with a great band called "the cherry blossoms".
to be honest, the only good bands that i'm not involved with from west/mid-tennessee are...

taiwan deth
malocchio
vegan brand all-girl chorus line
dave cloud & the gospel of power
arizona drains
the cherry blossoms
the bloated lackeys
crayola filth
hunted house/arkhunt
chainsaw paws

strangely that you mentioned those guys, though... when i played with them they totally RUINED two simon & garfunkel songs, both of which i just posted about... "america" and "peggy-o".

Oh well. I'd like to hear their destruction of S&G. I like hearing songs ruined, if they're ruined colorfully.

me too. but i guess s&g is just totally sacred for me... though i am a huge fan of "exotic beatles" set. have them all on vinyl AND cdr for the car!
also recently picked up the trogan reggae tribute to the beatles and that's receiving a severe amount of listening around here!
some other similar picks...

nihilist records (a label that specializes in agressive experimental music) has put out several gems... primarily the WONDERFUL tribute to abba, "masters of the scene". that release is so fucking insane! total room-clearer! even better than their earlier "wigs on fire: a tribute to the b-52's". also noteworthy, "kausing a kommotion: a tribute to madonna". crazy shit!
a friend of mine dug up a ratty old LP of acoustic-folky covers of kraftwerk! i wish i remembered the name. it was pretty odd.
i also have a project called "the 1981 carnival" which started out as totally unrecognizable/irrelevent solo cover band, but i've actually started forming a band and doing somewhat more "proper" covers. mostly folk/classic rock oriented, though the more than the occasional oddity appears... here's our current list of songs to consider for the next release...

Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling In Love
the incredible string band - swift as the wind
hasil adkins - no more hot dogs
tommy james & the shondells - crystal blue persuasion
Iron Maiden - The Loneliness Of THe Long-Distance Runner
Spirogyra - Old Boot Wine
willie nelson - always on my mind
amon duul ii - luzifers ghilom (instrumental)
Queen - Another One Bites The Dust
yma sumac - sauma
phil collins - that's all
Bolt Thrower - War
Prince - Raspberry Beret
Roy Orbison - Cryin'
new order - round & round
goblin - la danza
Meatloaf - Paradise by the Dashboard Light
Brian Eno - Some Of Them Are Old
comus - in the lost queen's eye
Sparks - The Number One Song In Heaven
"strange and beautiful music from the films of the brothers quay" - pursuit of the object
joy division - she's lost control

*we're saving all the simon & garfunkel songs we know for an entire album devoted to those lovely fellows*

amazing...I LOVE those exotic beatles comps, particularly 'the food'
mixing and your bird can sing with hard days night, and the noel coward-esque version of hey jude. Best comps ever. I have been collecting weird beatles covers for a few years now. I just got an amazing album the other day of lots of the early songs done (very convincingly) as handel-style chamber music.

You bastard, I have been eyeing up that trojan box set for ages, I really want to get it!!

Mitchell have you ever heard that version of the mission impossible theme with the lyrics of norwegian wood sung over the top? its confusing and beautiful..
