I'm with the MG on Wolfmother. But I also like good electronica, is this distinct from "doof doof"?

While mowing the lawns, you need a good, loud, ear bursting set of rock tunes to drown out the mower.
I read a review which poo pooed Wolfmother as nothing but re-zepplin, re-jack white, re-deep purple, re everything hard rock, I say, who cares. It's great, it's loud and it rocks... grrrrrr.

stop what YOU'RE doing and come in here and ravish me
agreed, I was not really concentrating. I was waiting for the call!!

doof doof is the heavy bass something or other which 18 year old p-platers with baseball caps in 1986 VL Commodoores driving up chapel/lyon st listen too. You can see the boots rattle with each doof!

I'm not Craig said...

Dude, you suggest ravishing and MG corrects your grammer?
Dude. Seriously.

I am so totally undecided on Wolfmother. Still, hard to go past "it's great, it's loud and it rocks" as a recommendation. I'll have to check this out.

Finally, regarding our previous exchange of comments about this meme on MG's blog, turns out it was a good read.

In keeping with the twitter theme.
