Werner Hertzog is AWESOME.
I'm purely a bass player although I have a guitar (...somewhere).
I'll jam with anyone and have played in metal, indie and blues bands, now I want to follow something more post-rock/punk using electronic shizz. I endorse most genre's (bar chart pop etc) although my personal preferences are art rock,proto-punk,early goth, jazz fusion,electronica etc I do like some heavier stuff Sabbath,Lightening Bolt - Strapping Young Lad are crazy **** etc asss well as more spacey folk type music such as six organs of addmittance and experimental stuff by John Cage.
I see lots of bands, recently I saw the Boredoms & Future of the Left next I shall see Manson (which I hope will be good) and then Beirut.
