Update: The Winner !!!

Hi everyone! Thanks again to everyone who participated. After much deliberation, I have selected the winner!

John Earles
(jearles)

Korpiklaani - Happy Little Boozer

Geeklist Item #7

Simply put, I really enjoy the folk/metal combo. And I don't normally enjoy metal. But this is good stuff!

Congratulations, John!!




This geek list was inspired by Cate108's 'share some funny' geeklist:

http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/51212/post-some-funny-and-...

I'm going to follow in her footsteps and use a similar format.

Name of the Contest: "Post Your Favorite Obscure Music"

Instructions: Give this geeklist a thumbs up and post a song you think most people haven't heard before. It's OK if it's an obscure song by a famous artist or band. Post as many songs as you like! Also, if you can afford it, please tip a little bit of geek gold so that I can award something to the winner! I literally have zero GG so a small tip would be very appreciated (especially by the winner!)

Eligibility: any BGG member (worldwide) who thumbs this geeklist and posts a song.

Prize: The winner will receive some geek gold (of an undetermined amount).
UPDATE: Cate108 just contributed 50 GG!!! Thanks, Cate! The winner will receive 50 GG + whatever is in the tip jar at the end of the contest!!

Winner: I will choose the winner myself, but I will use the number of thumbs to guide my decision.

Deadline: 11:59 PM Pacific Time on February 5, 2010.


Note: The videos I posted may not be the original videos for the songs. This isn't a video contest--it's all about the music!

After Depeche Mode, Devo is probably my favorite band. But neither of them is obscure (some albums or songs - e.g. Construction Time Again by Dpeeche Mode - may have more obscurity, but they are not obscure themselves). But Devo has an offshoot and no I don't mean Devo 2.0; no I mean Jihad Jerry & the Evildoers!



And going backwards in time...
PolyRock, a pretty darn good band - this is probably the more accessible of their songs.



And what would New Wave be without a mention of Shrikeback!

This is my most favourite german band.
Unfortunatly the most of you won't understand the lyrics but the person who made this video (it isn't the original one) translated the lyrics to english (look for the comment on Youtube).

And this is also not eryones music.
I don't know if they are known in America, so if they are well known and I show nobody something new: Sorry!

I like the music... and there are no lyrics...





And this one is quiet different than the first one:

Mes souliers sont rouges - J'ai écouté le CD cinq, et j'aime le Petit Galliote.
A (former) french band that plays awesome fun music - the contents of the fifth album can be found here: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_%28disque%29]

Highly recommended.

Here's the legendary Hasil Adkins, weirdest of the original rockabillies. This is arguably his most well-known tune.

Love this track. Papa George Lightfoot, master of the harmonica blues, sings through his harp mic and gets a great distortion effect. Check it out.

This is an awesome seven-minute hip-hop beat, with all video and audio samples taken from the David Lynch movie Eraserhead. Assembled by author and musician Forrest Armstrong. A must see for any fan of the film. Unforgettable.

Slightly less obscure but totally awesome are the Red Elvises, a sort of weird semi-Russian psychobilly-ish band that rocks like crazy. They also star in a fantastic and obscure film, Six-String Samurai, the DVD of which this music video is included on.

Not exactly obscure as they were popular in their home country of Japan, but Thee Michelle Gun Elephant (yes, really) is a great garage punk band and is certainly worthy of your attention.

Need some Billy Childish on here. Not incredibly obscure, but way more than he should be. Here's one from one of his more recent projects, the Buff Medways. Billy Childish is a genius and you should all check out his shit.
