i have no idea what genre you would call them, but i once saw a band at a Bosstones show (older Bosstones albums are much better than the stuff you heard on the radio!!!!) called "THE SCOFFLAWS" alot of thier songs are instrumental, and the range from very mellow, to songs with just enough energy for a live show.

i have one of their cd's sitting here and i think im gonna have to listen to it now.

A very bad band I saw in the late 80's. They opened for Megadeath. They were passing out thier LPs to the audiance during the show, and we were throwing them back.

Depending on your taste, checking out Kirsten might be worthwhile. They're a Dutch band with a rather good female vocalist/songwriter. "The Chick Singer" is a pretty good album and worth trying to get.

Also Al Stewart has faded from the forefront these days but wrote some excellent stuff (if you like your songs to be about something). "Past, Present and Future" is an album I'd recommend.

I've got another one, I'm not sure if they are known in the USA but they are quite unknown in the UK except in Pagan circles.

Inkubus Sukkubus. Goth Rock with some really fantastic guitar work.
(Not Incubus - they are different... it's with the K's not the C's).

They were on the Mortal Kombat soundtrack, with "Burn". :)

Which, actually, is not one of their best songs... at least not off of the album its from. I prefer "Hole in the Ground" or "Wired". My current siggy is actually their lyrics from the song "Think"

Reading one of Johathan's earlier posts reminded me of one I know most probably heard of, but I still like them: The Butthole Surfers
