    Probably not. They are heavy metal punk rockers, aren't they?
    Yeah, their music is pretty cool.
    Classifications are in our head at the end of the day.
    I remember when I was listening to Simon & Garfunkel, a bloke said they are country musicians.
    I think their music is unique. Metallica probably falls into a unique category as well.
    I used to listen to Metallica & Red Hot Chili Peppers all the time when I was kid.

    Lol . Call Metallica a punk band to a dedicated fan and you will be without teeth very quickly.

    Probably not, 'cos they sing a lot.

    This is how new age music started to sound like since 1990's. This is the more electric guitar version of new age

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJf2ONDZvQ0

    Or this one from 3:38 onwards.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMqPw2ajO0M

    And this one has many Spanish folk(gypsy flamenco), Indian & Jazz in it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWfQSQnldDc

    And this is how it got started for this particular composer back in early 1990's. Heavy gypsy flamenco influence there.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QvoeddedM0


    If you've heard of Paco de lucia & the guitar trio(with John Mcloughlin, Al de Meola), they started this gypsy/jazz fusion stuff back in mid-late seventies.

    New age is a genre of music that is hard to classify as a certain sound or instruments, 'cos some of the "sleep/relax music" also fall into new age.

    This guy is credited for the revival of New Age gypsy flamenco sort of music, back in late 80's & early 90's. He's pretty quiet nowadays. You can hear the latino, bossa nova rhythms in it.

    You mean dedicated fanatics!
    Yeah, punk rock is not their main taste(I'm getting confused with Red Hot Chili Peppers )
    Ok heavy metal rockers then.
    I hardly pay attention to categories these days.
    Music is music, as long as it suits the occasion.

    Yes, my apologies for side tracking the thread with music stuff.

    I wonder howz Mark going with fixing the issue. I still think Radio itself is to blame.

    Alright folks.
    I had to rip out the fascia surrounding the stereo this evening to get to some wiring for UHF unit .
    While there I quickly detached my Pioneer unit and plugged in my old Polaris deck. Tada! Clear reception with car off and on.
    So I plugged in the Pioneer unit back in, reception shithouse. So I thought I'd try something, somebody suggested earlier, to groud the deck physically to the battery negative... It's done sweet f*** all.
    My take on this is, maybe it's the unit. On my car. Mark's could be different?

    edit: Just remembered that my factory unit was causing the same issue.... So I'm stumped.
