    I didn't find a thread about these dudes...They are a trio who rock pretty good, but they are effect-heavy...Pretty decent songwriting...

    Imagine throwing Queen, Prince, the Cure, and Zep in a blender...They are funky...

    Anyone else checking them out?

    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    Didn't like much off the last, but they have their moments. Check out TSP,

    I find the guy's voice hard to take in large doses, but it's worth weeding
    through Absolution and Origin of Symmetry.

    I love the "Absolution" album... but the new album is a little more tech sounding. Good band... great vocals.

    I saw them open for the Chili Peppers several years ago. Can't remember being heavily impressed, but I don't recall much about them, either. Maybe I should give them another listen.

    I've never heard them but some say Dream Theater was a little influenced by them on the Octavarium album.

    I hear that...

    They really wear the influences right on their lapels, but it's a good mixture. Good musicians, too...

    Sample them on iTunes...all their albums are there...

    Default Muse To Rock New Wembley Stadium

    from www.billboard.com:

    December 04, 2006, 12:00 PM ET

    Mark Sutherland, London

    Muse is the first band to announce a gig at London's new Wembley Stadium since last year's aborted attempt to re-open the iconic venue led to shows by Bon Jovi, the Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams and Take That being re-located.

    The June 16 gig will be Muse's first stadium show and comes on the back of worldwide success for its latest album, "Black Holes and Revelations" (Warner Bros). Tickets go on sale Dec. 9. The exact capacity for concerts at Wembley has yet to be finalized, but will be in the region of 75,000 people.

    The band is currently on a sold out 39-date arena tour across the U.K. and Europe, playing to an average of 12,000 fans per night. Speaking pitchside in the new stadium -- which will primarily be used for sporting events, including international matches for the English national soccer team -- Muse drummer Dominic Howard admitted to Billboard.com the gig was "a huge step up" for the band.

    "It's something we've dreamed of in the past," he said, "and now definitely seems the right time to do it. It's going to be amazing, overwhelming." Singer Matt Bellamy jokingly promised "flashing screens, a helicopter balloon drop and maybe a spaceship" for the show and said the band hoped the concert would have the feel of a mini-festival.

    "We'll definitely have three other bands [on the bill] and hopefully some of those bands will be pretty well known, and we'll try and make a real summer event out of it," he said. Muse is also planning two other European stadium shows around the same time, with details to be announced.

    The original Wembley Stadium played host to dozens of legendary concerts, including the original Live Aid in 1985. It closed in 2000 and the rebuilding process has been hit by huge construction delays. Bon Jovi -- who played the last concert at the old Wembley in 2000 -- had been due to play the first gig at the new stadium on June 10 this year, but had to move the show to Milton Keynes Bowl.

    Wembley Stadium's Chief Executive, Michael Cunnah, told Billboard.com there is likely to be one big music event before the Muse concert, and said he was in negotiations with a number of promoters about booking further shows.

    Listened to the "Black Holes And Revelations" album last night...WOW!

    The whole record is a treatise on war and those that it affects. There are a couple of (seemingly) lightweight "dance tunes", yet beyond that there is some killer stuff.

    The tune "Soldier's Poem" is quite unlike anything one has ever heard, unless one frequently listens to what can only be described as Queen covering a Leon Redbone tune. Simply stunning. (I literally listened to it four times in a row!) "Exo Politics" pounds away at times like mid-period Crazy Horse, yet with Terry Bozio on the drum-kit. The tune "Invincible" is done in three movements, starting as a tune sung by a group of young, hopeful warriors united to face an oppressive foe (think French Resistance or Australia's ANZAC's). It's followed by a thunderous, hammering tune as the war arrives called "Assassins" (it sounds like U2 if U2 could play better and grew up on The Gang Of Four and Judas Priest).

    This band writes and performs actual music that is interesting, compelling as all hell and rewards careful listening. Finally a band that displays an appreciation of music, displays some intelligent songcraft and musicianship and doesn't feature an annoying, obnoxious singer that one wishes to rid of self preciousness by slapping him about the face with a brick.

    Thanks for the head's-up, Sacto. This one is a keeper.
