Any obscure music recommendations?

Below is a list of some of the artists/bands on my iTunes so that you can have an idea of what I like. As you can tell, my taste is very diverse. But please keep in mind when making suggestions that I have thousands upon thousands of CDs and albums and that these artists are just a few compared to the rest…thanks!

    1. Good lawd, that’s a lot of bands…….

      Zen Guerilla kind of takes a page from the MC5 book, playing some raw gritty blues-influenced rock ‘n’ roll.

      The Dicks – Old school punk from Austin. Mudhoney covered this one.

      Mono – Post-rock from Japan. I saw them live a little more than a month ago and the sounds they created were mind-boggling.

      John Fahey. This guy was amazing with the guitar.

      Monorchid – Actually I just found this one looking for Circus Lupus but it seems pretty sweet.

      Wow, Asylum Street Spankers. I went to school with Guy Forsythe’s brother. I didn’t think anyone knew them.

      Great call on The Jayhawks Darth.
