I like a lot of stuff unrelated to MP. One of my favourite bands after MP is the Scottisch band Elbow! They've released four marvellous albums between 2001 and last year. Their oevre is full deep sadness, great beauty, the sweetest melodies, and a driving, sometimes rocking force! We still believe in love so fuck you! Grace under pressure (as they named one of their finest songs)! Alone Guy Garvey's voice: powerful, meaningful, dominating and at the same time so incredibly soft and warm and sad. I'd mary his voice if I could! An Elbow-concert is absolutely fantastic, too! Go see them if you get the chance. Throw those curtains wide, one day like this a year would seem me right!
Another beloved band of mine is Modest Mouse which probably more people know. Especially their early stuff from the nineties is Killerindierock. I recommend "The lonesome crowded west" and "Building nothing out of something" if you don't know them.
An older band I really like is Queen, btw. I'm not talking about their greatest hits or their later output in general, but about their first three albums. There are two songs on those which made it to the best-of-albums, the rest is hardly known! Unbelivable, imho. It's fantastic progressive indierock, very diverse and playful, and full of glam rock anthems... Hum,.. I know, in the end it' a matter of taste!
