    The Clash?

    I have London Calling, and I like it, if that makes any difference.
    Give Em Enough Rope, Sandinista!, and The Clash

    Any reccomendations for bands similar to Midnight Oil? Also, any album reccomendations for Primus?
    Oooh. For bands similar to Midnight Oil, try and give these a listen:

    INXS:
    Kick
    Shabooh Shoobah

    Simple Minds:
    Glittering Prize 81/92 (They have a pretty extensive discography; definitely start off with this excellent compilation first)

    Big Country:
    The Crossing
    Peace In Our Time and Steeltown have some gems, as well.

    I thoroughly enjoy their first 3 albums:

    Superfuzz Bigmuff
    Mudhoney
    Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge

    But I like the debut (Superfuzz Bigmuff) the best of those.

    Lately, I have been trying to break into New Wave music. Any idea where to start would be great. I found a list of some New Wave bands that might help in recommending albums:

    Human League
    Depeche Mode
    Joy Division/New Order
    Tears For Fears
    The Smiths
    Culture Club
    Spandau Balley
    Oingo Boingo
    Young Marble Giants
    Wire
    XTC
    Siousxie and the Banshees (Israel)
    The Cure
    Psychedelic Furs
    Echo and the Bunnymen
    The Attractions
    The B-52s
    The Talking Heads

    What little I have heard, I enjoy. The only band I specifically dislike from this genre is Duran Duran, but the rest of these I've either never heard or heard very little.

    sorry for the wait... i've been busy today (plus, i picked up a bunch of cheap used xbox games). i'll start with some notes on fizz's fantastic recomendations...

    Joy Division/New Order - Unknown Pleasures (and new order's "substance 1987" which is one compilation album everyone should own)
    Tears For Fears - Songs From The Big Chair
    The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead
    Oingo Boingo - Only A Lad
    The Cure - Pornography (also throw in "disintegration")
    The Attractions - Armed Forces or for just Costello This Year's Model
    The B-52s - The B-52s
    The Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues or Talking Heads '77 (i would personally swap out "speaking in tongues" with "fear of music" but you can't go too wrong with this band)
    and here are the other ones... i left out the few bands i don't personally care for.

    Human League - dare
    Culture Club - kissing to be clever
    Young Marble Giants - colossal youth
    Wire - pink flag
    XTC - english settlement (though this varies wildly for different people)
    Siousxie and the Banshees - "the scream" for more punk material and "kaleidoscope" for a more post-punk/new wave sound, though they have a great discog)
    Psychedelic Furs - either "talk talk talk" or "forever now"
    Echo and the Bunnymen - crocodiles

    Franz Ferdianand has two studio albums. It's not that hard to choose between them.

    Starting point on Sonic Youth, I only really know them from rockband/gh I like teenage riot but I'm not as big on Kool Thing- those are the only two songs I know.

    Hm, you could start with Daydream Nation, but keep in mind the rest of the album sounds nothing like Teen Age Riot at all. It's a lot more dissonant. I'd say Dirty (the album in my avatar) or maybe Experimental Trash, Jet Set, No Star is probably their most accessible though.

    though kool thing is on goo you should give it a shot shortly after the albums A_C recommended...
    it's probably their most immediately accessible album, and none of the tracks sound remotely alike, much less particularly similar to kool thing.

    Aja is my favorite for the large amount of jazz greats that played on it, but I think you're fine starting with just about any of their albums. Their first two might have the most recognizable songs though.

    Bands in the vein of Funeral Diner and Majority Rule, please. I'd like the more "prog" of 'screamo' bands, yknow; the buildup and textures, etc. So far for this I only have two suggested bands for this vein of 'screamo' music. Gospel and In Minor. But I don't know where to start with those.

    SO HALP.

    I am also looking for latin fusion bands/albums.

    get "the moon is a dead world" by gospel and as for OFF minor i don't know if i can pick a favorite... check out both "heath death" and "some blood".

    a few other bands you may not already know in this vein include dominic, the spectacle, kidcrash, and belle epoque.
