Great avant-gardish jazz-fusion band who have backed Kayo Dot on several occasions and done splits with Infidel?/Castro! and Ahleuchatistas.

A band I'm familiar with having come across it in myspace searches a few times (not sure why I didn't suggest it; an oversight no doubt). It's a band I really like. Good suggestion; good band!  EDIT: have passed on the suggestion to the avant prog team.

Indeed it is (must admit having known it already that I'm kicking myself for not having made such a good suggestion myself).  I think it'll be great for avant prog.

Their EP is available on emusic - I'll probably grab it sometime next week when my account refreshes.  Band sounds very suitable for avant prog IMO.

I started out thinking about them for jazz-rock, but after listening to their EP again I think their collective heart in definitely in avant-garde. Cool

This is a no-brainer for me.   Björnar (BJ) voted yes on the chart.

I think there should be a statute of limitations on the approval of no-brainers. LOL Or should I say, clearing bands should not take so long (I'm more than guitly of not evaluating materials for Eclectic).  It does have one positive vote from the team already, and no other votes, so that should be enough.

If there are no objections, and you want to write the bio, I will add it for you giving you full credit for the addition.

A worthless yes from me. Nice trumpet.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

Now that I have a bit of power, revisiting some things...and these guys I really enjoyed, in fact I did grab their EP from emusic.  So that said, Friendly Bears is approved.  Avantgardehead, if you still want to contribute a bio, let me know.

Seeing that most of my vetos to bands are ignored, I'll say NO! in the hope that they get in, because they deserve to be here.
Big smile

Bump,

So Avanthead, are you going to write the bio?
If not, I can take care of it.

No time to write the bio, plus I literally know nothing about them aside from the band name, the name of the album, and a few songs.

Ok, then, I'll take on this later on when I have more time.
