Mars Volta really blows me away. For as long as I've had de-loused I still love to just sit and listen to the whole thing. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right pleaces but I don't hear all that much about them and other than my group of friend I don't really know anyone else who listens to them. I've seen the pop up a handfull of times on here too. They never have any tour dates posted on there site and that is definitely a band that I would travel to see and I bet their live show is incredible, I saw one on tv one time and it was really cool. But they seem like the type of band that if they did tour it would be in Europe. I also heard a while ago about an Omar Rodriguez-Lopez solo album that was supposedly the soundtrack to some kind of movie that he was making???? Just wondering what other people think of this awesome band and looking for like minded discussion. And what other musically mature bands do yall like to listen to?
