I would love to have these, but alas, I must be a responsible human being.  :(

Rewind! The Cassette is Back.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry released their report of 2 million cassette tapes sold worldwide? Sales in the UK alone tripled last year.

Cassettes suck.

Yeah, that's just retro with the intention of being contrary.

I love Boston's first and like their second. The funny thing about Boston's first is that it was more indie than most well-known indie bands. Most of it was played by Tom Scholz himself and recorded on 12-track in his own basement and on his own dime. It wasn't "corporate" rock; the sound he invented was copied by everyone else and that became corporate rock.

Journey is actually older than Boston and started as a jazz-rock spinoff of Santana. They went nowhere, so they hired a candyass singer and invented Glee.

I somehow missed these comments when they were posted.  They are both spot on.

Jeez, I never thought about their 'family tree' but it is indeed impressive.

Sober, I can think of a few more they could've included:
Dead Meadow
The Triffids
The Church
The Clientele
The Wild Swans
Dilettantes
The Rebel Drones
Mellow Drunk
Freelovebabies

Brian Jonestown Massacre and I'm a bit flabbergasted about this tree, having no idea so many of Anton Newcombe band mates went on to so many projects.  Anton BTW is a totally trip on twitter...

Slappy, Mellow Drunk is on there. ;) Good band that just never seemed to make it beyond the various musical social media sites. Gotta say that you certainly know your BJM and their history! I would have never realized that there were so many spawns.

Where's Sparx when we need him?

If I'm not mistaken, Daydream Nation are another missing branch.

Don't know when this was created but it is interesting.

weird anton has disappeared from twitter recently... watching him work on remixes with Tim Burgess over twitter and banter with Andy Partridge was fun.  he's a bit like walkie on twitter (conspiracy theories and the like)   but there are no cat pictures involved.
