Just off the top, would like to let you know that this was one of the best podcasts you've ever done. Special thanks for the introduction to The Cat's Miaow and Mars Classroom.

As for bands missing from that list...iceage is an excellent Dannish melodic hardcore punk band a la No Hope for the Kids. Neon Blud is a noisy, expiremental, early Sonic Youth sounding punk/noise band. And then Merchendise, are an excellent post-punk band that might be the next Joy Division. Oh, and you've never played Joy Division on this podcast either.
