But, I have thought of an alternative idea for discovering new bands to explore - thanks to the efforts of leadgend throwing The Brian Jonestown Massacre at my beloved Dandy Warhols (so far, I still prefer the Dandys).
Anyway, the idea here is to play a sort of word association game. I'm going to list the bands/artists I am currently deeply into, and anyone who wants to play along can add anything that isn't on the list that they think is similar or otherwise related to any of these.
The Dandy Warhols
The Velvet Underground
Kite Flying Society
The Polyphonic Spree
