I love the bit where member "fandorin" asks if the Howling Bells CDs "come with a Juanita doll" (he's obviously seen a couple of photos of her!). Good old timetunnel replies: "They probably ship a free punch by the drummer, in order to focus your mind on the music...."
Ah yes, that's right, you started the thread actually :-)
I think I discovered them around January this year, thanks to a certain Mr. Fandorin. "Setting Sun" immediately had a heavy impact on me back then, and especially the last four or five months have been the time I started to really love them.
