Mike Oldfield.

All the stuff that everyone else listens to is boring.

In fairness, some of it isn't that bad, but nothing I'd consider buying.

Nope, and even a google of it doesn't give too much away.
Boring by default. :p *turns up Mike Oldfield*

I found their website at http://www.neubauten.org/

Which firmly puts paid to my original theory that Mile had made them up on the spur of the moment to make us all believe he listens to German groups with cool sounding names as opposed to Agadoo. :p

"I'm a barbie girl
In a barbie wo-orld..."

I was managing to keep it OUT of my head until you went and posted the lyrics Chenshaw :[

Yes, next we'll all be humming along to "Agadoo" or perhaps "Shaddap you face" by Joe Dolce. Who can forget, however much they try, the true horror of "There's no one quite like Grandma" by St Winifred's School Choir.

Actually, some of this may have veered off topic, as there is some that cannot really be called music.

Ooh, the site's down now. Means I'll finally be getting my CD now; excellent!

If you were curious, which I know you weren't, the band decided a few years ago to do away with record labels and ask the fans to sponsor them in making albums. The result is that, for 35 Euros, supporters can interact with the band on a forum, can watch the band rehearse and jam as they create music, listen to works in progress, download exclusive tracks (got a 2 hour live album), an email address, an invite to a supporter only gig in Berlin, and a CD that won't be available in shops.

They've been going for 25 years now; the singer in the band is the guy in my avatar.

Arcade Fire seemed fairly wierd when they were on Top of The Pops, bunch of mad Canadian multi-instumentalists.

Ah, Shaddap You Face. Kind of sad to admit that I actually liked that as a kid:

What'sa wrong with you
Hey!
Gota no respect
Hey!


And I forget the rest of it but it was certainly a classic of yesteryear.
