No.  This FM was a Canadian band that featured producer (and Invisible Man wannabe) Nash the Slash (who was known to the UK for his production work with Gary Numan, among others)

Written By: Apricot on 10/22/06 at 11:23 am

In my personal opinion:

1. Slender Sherbert- Momus
2. Oskar, Tennis Champion- Momus
3. The Lonesome, Crowded West- Modest Mouse
4. The Mollusk- Ween
5. D.o.A: The Third and Final Report- Throbbing Gristle
6. The Downward Spiral- Nine-Inch Nails
7. Self-Titled Debut- Tubeway Army (Gary Numan)
8. Knife Play- Xiu Xiu
9. Morrissey, You Are The Quarry- Morrissey
10. Commencement- Deadsy


If I had to guess what they'd be for the main population, it'd likely be "O.K. Computer", a few Pink Floyd albums, Revolver by the Beatles... and probably a Led Zeppelin one or two.

Rust in Peace - Megadeth
Reign in Blood - Slayer
Powerslave - Iron Maiden
Cowboys From Hell - Pantera

It seems "The Mollusk" is everybody's favorite Ween album, and I really can't see why. I mean... All the songs are good, but they've done better, in my opinion.
