    For this edition, rather than a point system, I shall employ a new system that is intended simply to give a general impression of the quality of a release.
    If a release isn't rated yet, it just means I put it in the list so as not to forget to listen to and rate it later ;-)
    Obviously these ratings are coloured by personal taste, so, you know, chill out if I say something you like is the musical equivalent of horse manure. = Superb! Must hear for all open-minded music lovers = Good to very good, recommended to all fans of parent genre (e. …

    1. This is an ever-growing list of bands and albums I am searching for. Much like the 'haves' journal, not all of these artists are current residents of the area, but all of them have called the region home at one time or another.
    2. This list will never be completely up-to-date, as there are so many musicians that have come out of the area and have released albums with multiple bands. I've also chalked it up to a near-impossibility that I will ever get all of these, but I can try.
    3. I'm open for almost all types of music. If you have something you may not see here, don't let that keep you from speaking up about it. The only types of music I make a general rule not to track down are those who lean more towards a sound of rap rock/nu-metal (downthesun, 8 degrees, Canvas), bar band/classic rock/hair metal/general guitar wankery (Puddle of Mudd fits into the bar band category, the others I don't care to list examples for), or bad rap (Tech N9ne, countless others).

    Sat 28 Jan – 28.01.12 WINTER SOLITUDE EVENING, г.Киев, Прайм

    напишу немного о том что услышал и увидел:
    - проект Nightspirit с тягучими мрачными мелодиями мне показался идеальным для жутких трипов, залипание и самопогружение обеспечено.
    - Vin de Mia Trix с их новыми штуками очень порадовали, жду альбома, который может быть уже довольно скоро.
    p.s. а еще я счастливый обладатель их промо-диска под номером 01 :3
    - Narrow House.. по мне - не очень, может из-за звучания, плохого настроения участников или еще чего-то там, я ж хз, но клавишница у них отличная!
    - еще должен отметить альбом Nowhere от one-man проекта Lethe, копии альбома можно было безоплатно намутить. так вот, послушал, dark ambient, выдержанный стиль, совсем неплохо.

    из-за некоторых причин мне пришлось уйти после выступления Narrow House, но вечер, в принципе, удался.

    1. This is a journal containing bands and albums I have recordings from on my computer. Though I try to support local music as best as I can by attending shows and buying albums, not all of this music I am in direct physical possession of through purchase.
    2. Not all of the bands below are directly from the KC/Lawrence area. Other cities and towns I keep in this collection are Topeka, KS, Columbia, MO, Wichita, KS, Warrensburg, MO, Manhattan, KS, and a few other, more rural areas of the region. Essentially, it contains everything east of and including Wichita in Kansas, and everything west of and including Columbia in Missouri.
    3. In addition to the previous point, you will notice that not all of the bands here are current residents of the region. Many bands (Mates of State, White Rabbits, etc.) unfortunately decided to move away to a larger metro area. Others (The Appleseed Cast, Namelessnumberheadman), were started in different regions and then relocated here at some point, usually early in their career. …
