I love that we all have the same basic taste in music. I grew up listening to SRV, Hendrix, Clapton...and i've only grown my music taste from there. I'm pretty unbiased when it comes to music, my only criteria is that I can jam to it.
I know a lot more punk bands than anything, but if you guys have some suggestions for music that I should check out...that would be rad.
and G-Men, I cant believe you know Mustard Plug, lol. I've seen them so many times, and have even met them before. Really nice guys...and one of my favorite bands too, esp because they are home grown.
If you are a ska fan...you have to like Streetlight Manifesto. imo, they are the perfect example of 3rd wave ska.
Yeah my best friend since 2nd grade was a huge Ska-punk fan through High School and college and we went to see them too. He was obsessed and got me into a few bands. Haven't listened to much in a WHILE now, but off the top of my head: Spring Heeled Jack (must check them out: Jolene), Pilfers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbvK-tjNOyQ) and of course Catch 22 (1234, Supernothing (awesome tune))
Just the big three I can remember.
My musical phases through life basically go: Classic rock--->Metal (witha side of rap...well just Public Enemy and Cypress Hill)--->Grunge----->80's (even though it was early 90's by this point)Classical (big Bach kick for a while)---->Dave Matthews---->Blues (John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson)----->Jam Band (briefly: Disco Biscuits, Brothers Past)---->Pretty much anything right now.

^ thats awesome. If you like catch-22 then you have to listen to Streetlight Manifesto...its the lead singer/songwriter from catch-22, it's his second band. He also has a side project called Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, they are pretty good too, its almost like an orchestra ska punk band. lol.
My music phases go something like this: Classic Rock ----> classic punk (iggy pop, mc5, television, etc) -----> punk / hardcore / ska / reggae -----> metal -----> and then a bunch of random stuff after that. I started to realize there was a lot more good music outside of my musical knowledge, and basically started searching for as much music as I could.
