Old fans and curious new ones will be pleased to hear of the release of Drop Outs, two (now three) bumper volumes of Zan-zan-zawa-veia lost classics and rarities, some never heard before.
To save me prattling on more info here http://8bc.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=23707
(If this is your first exposure to Zzzv a better place to start might be with the Lune Rose compilation).
tagging genres has no real use
progtronica 8-bit chiptune progressive fusion avant-pop glitch prog glitch pop video game music vgm chiptronica chipmusic micromusic glitch jazz space pop witch house dance trance electronica chip funk
Zan has previously released on Disasterpeace's fabled label Pause/ II Music, had albums mixed by Alex Mauer and Shawn Phase of Temp Sound Solutions, check them out.
Artists with a similar aesthetic/ if you like Zan you might like/ if you like them you might like Zan Jay Tholen, Blitz Lunar, Maxo, Kulor
(sorry, not an exhaustive list just stuff I'm currently digging but who likes spam anyway)

6 Sep 2009, 19:56 by OzzloafBands I've seen live in my lifetime. In alphabetical order.
WARNING: THERE ARE A LOT OF BAD BANDS ON THIS LIST! (but there also many amazing ones...) Just because a band is on this list (even multiple times) does NOT mean that I like them.
Note that these are concerts that stretch through out my entire life, and the bands that I liked when I was 6 are not the same as the ones I like now...
Alice in Chains
Bat for Lashes
Better Than Ezra
Between the Buried and Me (2x)
Book of Black Earth
Creature With The Atom Brain

This is the third of three posts honoring the 35th Anniversary of California Jam on April 6th, which I failed at the time to highlight. The first and second posts covered the sets of Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, the latter who co-headlined with ELP.
In both of those previous posts I raised the point that while the show was largely simulcast on FM radio and television by ABC, it was not officially recorded and released. For many years, only the Deep Purple set was available. However, in mid-2005, a 2-DVD set called Beyond the Beginning finally saw the release of the entire 45-minute ELP set on the second disc.
The ELP set featured a "magical" sequence following Karn Evil 9: 3rd Impression of Keith Emerson playing the piano while spinning in mid-air, setting a standard for highlight special effects for decades to come:

Originating in Slough (currently part of Berkshire), Sledgehammer are, so far in this series, the band based closest to my hometown. Unfortunately, information on the band and readily available youtube samples are seemingly scarce, but I'm going to do my best.
The three-piece originally consisting of Mike Cooke (guitar, vocals), Terry Pearce (bass), Ken Revell (drums) first garnered attention at the dawn of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal when their 1979 self-titled single was released independently at first, but would shortly be re-issued by a now defunct record label called Valiant.
Sledgehammer (youtube) was accompanied by the b-side Feel Good and was rather well received, as seemingly all the 'early' signings of the first widely recognised year of the movement seemed to be. The band's title track then became such a live favourite many of the band's sets reportedly featured the track twice…
