Having loved the El Doom, I checked out something on spec after reading El Doom's background and relation to Elephant9. I'm now listening to Dodovoodoo by Elephant9 and it is fab - like ELP gone King Crimson jazz only in a band with large slabs of funk falling on their heads.
I shall endeavour to check them out. I'd heard the name in conjunction with El Doom but not heard a note. On that description I think I shall have to go on the sniff. Hedvig Mollestad, also an El Doomer, is mega.
ps Have you heard Shining?* They're a Norweigian band that mix extreme metal with out there Jazz skronk to pleasing effect. I've got a couple of albums (think there's four?) and they rock skronkily.
*Not to be confused with Shining (Sweden) who are a more straighforward black metal band of Satanic evilness, itself not without it's merits. m/
Confusing! I haven't heard Shining (or Shining for that matter). Will keep ears suitably peeled.
Was listening to more Elephant9 this morning, damn good actually.
