Hey, i just wanted to see if anyone else had ever listened to Course of Empire.
They were in existense from 1988 until 1998.

They were really an interesting band, they used to put steel drums on the concert floor, and then hand out sticks for the audience to hit the drums with, this would allow the audience to control the beat. i guess this would go either terrific, or horribly wrong.

anyways, here is thier website: http://www.courseofempire.com/home.html

they have typical band type stuff on there; but also interesting enough they offer all of thier recorded material on the site for free. i guess what has happened is each indie label that they had recorded with has since 'gone under', and no one collects royalties from the music, so they said screw it, and they put the music on the site for free.
