In general, a white guy with dreads makes me laugh. Adam Chaki is a white guy with dreads who makes great music. Unfortunately, he seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.

Chaki was one of the players in Bran Van 3000 (who, due to their label closing shop, are also in danger of falling off that edge) and broke into the scene on his own with No One Knows Where The Hell We Are.

When asked to describe his music, Chaki states: "Just think of the people who have Elton John in their collections as much as the people who have Tom Waits," he says. "And then try to make something they would both like."

This is pop music, but it's pop music from a man who knows what art is all about. He's infused elements of African, Middle Eastern and Jamaican music into his grandiose style.

Is anyone digging the music i've been putting up here? There's a convenient little "comments" link at the bottom of each post to let me know if i'm rad, or if i suck.

Thanks for your posts - i like some of the music you are showing us - some of Buck 65's stuff was cool,

Maybe everyone isn't checking as often or something?

bro, keep it up.. word will spread.. not sure how to promote this site. but it is very important.. I just stumbled across it via Imesh metadata on an mp3...

I see many bands you are listing that I know and love.. there are more of us out there.. maybe work on more contributors...

did you ever see www.lowfidelity.com when it was an actual site.. that was important... this can be the same...

Well thanks to the both of you. 2 comments are infinitely better than 0.

I didn't know of lowfidelity...i got excited when my browser started going to an actual page then realised that you probably WEREN'T talking about a scottish band.

Anyhoot...thanks again for the feedback.

how about some aqualung or sleepy jackson stuff?

The album 'Discosis' by Bran Van 3000 is really great, one of the most fun around. Worth checking out. I remember having an argument with someone about the band, their belief was that with every album the band added a 1000 to their name. There was no way to convince her that she was, for a fact, wrong.

Your Rad dude. Although we don't all show our love physically i.e. a post or an email - most of us come to your site religiously to expand our musical horizons. Not many Auzzie websites that can boast that. So on behalf of all your silent lovers keep it up! Possibly you will be rewarded in heaven.

As you probably know, the legendary Pixies have reunited - and they now also have a website - http://www.pixiesmusic.com/

Fingers crossed for an Aus tour...
