Ten random things: July30

Ten bands Spin magazine assumed, correctly, that I had never heard of:

  1. Les Négresses Vertes
  2. The Exploding Hearts
  3. Paul C
  4. Dog Faced Hermans
  5. Noir Désir
  6. Jhelisa
  7. The Gories
  8. Earl Brutus
  9. Ephraim Lewis
  10. Knife in the Water

I perused Spin's list of the 100 Greatest Bands You've (Probably) Never Heard while waiting for a haircut this afternoon, and while I didn't read it all that closely, it seems to me they did a pretty good job; I saw only one band that I had heard of before: Washington D.C.'s own Junk Yard Band. Still, 99 out of 100 is pretty good.
