web 2.0 / communities

an acquiantance i used to share music with a few years ago recently asked me to recommend something along the lines of gridlock and bad sector that he really enjoyed back in the day.

anyone that knows these bands, would understand why it was not an easy question to answer - the genres represented by the two are too broad, there are hundreds of names that could fit.

i briefly considered rattling off a dozen or so names off the top of my head, but then i remebered that we live in the time of web 2.0 (literally, as the conference is taking place right now), and we have last.fm (formerly known as audioscrobbler).

i can attest to the fact that the resulting "listening clouds" are a good place to start exploring similar names (here and here).
