Per Alm - Rockskolan (elgitarr)
>group-oriented guitar method, part of a set along with similar tapes & books for drums, bass and keyboards, but it pretty much failed for educational purposes. However it's some really listenable west coast "slick" rock on its own, all original tunes and one track is almost drone metal.
OK here goes but I'm not exactly playing by your 'rules', anyways King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
King Gizard & The Lizard Wizard - 12 Bar Bruise
>Awesome psych-folk-rock with very catchy tendancies from an Australian 7-piece.

King Gizard and the Lizard Wizard - Oddments
