Please, no negative comments about Rasputina. Eddie (the original poster) might be spooked away and never come back, thus losing out on his  opportunity to be part of a pretty darn cool community.

I don't know, I've seen them at least a half dozen times. Sure they were really good back in 98 when they were doing the whole darkwave/goth thing and appealing to that audience. However, they played the Black Cat last year with Minus the Bear and put on an excellent show. Looking forward to seeing them on Saturday after hitting Bender for DJ? Acucrack  ;)
 
 Also for you cello freaks check out Murder By Death. Another kick ass band with a hot chick playing cello  ;)   One of her cellos has "Eddie" airbrushed on it from Iron Madien!

Jag:  Catherine Wheel...beautiful music.  Let's keep it a secret from the others, okay?  BTW:  Did you ever give Engineers a listen?  What think you?  If Apocalyptica turned on the fans the other night, these bands might provide a break from harder stuff too...

i had a friend that lived in britain during the height of the shoegaze scene and marvelled at the "success" of catherine wheel in the states in comparison to the u.k.

I LOVE Catherine Wheel. How is Rob's LP? I thought the last CW record was disappointing, too bad, they were an incredible band for a while there. They also had the world's nicest bass player.

What Catherine Wheel albums come most highly recommended?  I've heard about them for a while, but somehow missed 'em.

Good GOD, go pick up Chrome RIGHT NOW, TODAY. (Sorry, just a knee-jerk reaction...that's only one of the best records I own, an album that even now blows me away and I listen to every couple of weeks.) God I wish I was discovering something lately as good as that. It's just one of those LPs that stands up over the test of time.

I second the 'Chrome' endorsement.  'Ferment' is also excellent (and not just for Black Metallic).
 
 Avoid 'Wishville' like you would the plague

Only 2 decent songs on Wishville...Lifeline and Mad Dog.
 
 Ferment KILLS too. I also have all the Ferment-era b-sides (some pretty rare stuff), so if anyone would like a trade or sorts, let me know. Really, really great stuff. I would have switched out some of Happy Days with the b-sides (Backwards Guitar for example should NEVER have been a b-side). Adam & Eve has some good moments.

LOVE Catherine Wheel. And agree with the others about starting off with Chrome and Ferment. Such quality music, imho. I even like Wishville but, yeah, not their best work.
 
 Yes, I'm well familiar with Engineers and have a couple of their CDs. Quite good. It killed me to have to miss them when they played the 9:30 Club last Fall, or whenever it was.
