Indieful ROK’s MySpace Directory

A couple of weeks back, Philip Gowman suggested that some kind of directory, perhaps organized by genre, over MySpace pages of Korean musicians could prove useful. Having had similar thoughts since the very start (but never becoming satisfied with the format) I took an immediate liking to the idea and started to build a list.

But here’s the thing – I’m not that good with genres. And a list of this kind will probably never be complete. So when you come across a MySpace link not already here, you’re more than welcome to let me know. And if you find a band that clearly doesn’t belong under the label I’ve put on it (right now there’s even a bunch of bands at the bottom without one, for various reasons), or would like to suggest new/other genres that would be much appreciated.

While this format too is far from being optimal, I hope you will find that Ctrl+F is your friend when trying to find that specific MySpace page your looking for, and that the genre division proves helpful when you’re out to discover some new music. I’ll keep a link to this post in the sidebar at all times and when I update with some new remarkable discovery I’ll make sure to let you know somehow.

    I love Gaia! If it’s the traditional Korean/metal-ish band, that is. Haven’t heard anything from them since that album a few years ago though. And unfortunately have yet to come across any MySpace page of theirs.

    Yes, that’s them – I thought they were excellent too but have never been able to find out any details about them online. They played a big stage in Seoul Plaza to a fairly sparse (but enthusiastic) crowd!
