    The Drams

    They seem to have modelled themselves on The Drums though as far as I can see there is very little connection. I was so confused when I heard them.

    Ten Masked Men are interesting. Not least for the songs they choose.

    I swear I have some more strange ones on my comp, but I can't for the life of me remember who =/

    Actually The oo - a Japanese xx tribute band are surprisingly good (although the songs are played extremely close to the originals...)
