    Funny you mention John Vanderslice... I met him at a Pedro The Lion gig (he was on tour with them). I also bootlegged that entire show legally.

    My top albums of 2004...

    Air - Talkie Walkie
    Asian Kung-Fu Generation - Sol-fa
    Interpol - Antics
    John Vanderslice - Cellar Door
    Keane - Hopes And Fears
    The Killers - Hot Fuss
    Quruli - Antenna
    Supercar - Answer
    U2 - How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
    Walrus - Self-Titled
    Wilco - A Ghost Is Born

    I managed to see Interpol live twice in 2004! Both performances were fantastic. I saw them the first time on The Cure's Curiosa Tour and on their own tour.

    Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Quruli, Supercar, and Walrus are all Japanese artists.

    Asian Kung-Fu Generation
    Asian Kung-Fu Generation was mentioned once before in this thread. They are a very good pop-punk band. For those of you who watch Naruto (I do not), they did the theme song "Haruka Kanata" for it (unless the the theme has changed).

    Quruli has become one of my favorite bands and for me is in the same ranks as U2 and The Smashing Pumpkins. They are an extremely versatile and talented group of musicians. I cannot place their music in any genre. I enjoy basically every piece of music they have created. John Vanderslice toured with Quruli in Japan and for a few dates in the US in 2002, if I remember correctly. Quruli discovered John Vanderslice's drummer while touring with him and asked him to join the band (since their former drummer had left the band), and he did. His playing on Antenna is amazing. He now has left the band due to creative differences after being with them for over a year.

    Supercar are a more alternative rock/electronic group. They have produced some very catchy and melodic tunes. Sadly, they have announced they will disband and are playing their last gig this month (February) on the 26th.

    Walrus is on the darker side of the Japanese music I listen to. They sound a bit more like late 80's The Cure stuff, but edgier. I guess I would describe their sound as "shoegazer"-esque, but more structured and heavier.

    I could continue writing more, but, that would be for a thread.
