Ha, I don't have a lot of play time from other music groups; not as of late. I listen to all sorts of other music artists nowadays (I'll listen to different artists from Mass Attack to Kraftwerk and Athex Twin, from The Beatles to The Rolling Stones), but Underworld and David Bowie have been the artists I've listened to a lot in the past several months. I still love U2. I'm long overdue for the deluxe edition of Achtung Baby. I'll be listening to more Air soon, too, as their new album hits in less than a week.

Re: Where are we now?
 
This is really tough for me, because it's not until I got my own iPod and computer in 2004 with access to ebay and amazon (and later, torrents) that I finally managed to clean out my "wishlist" and listen to a whole bunch of music that was new to me. In 2002 I liked UW, and King Crimson, and some indie bands I randomly discovered, but I didn't really know any better! Anyway, here's what I was into in 2004:
Underworld (obviously)
Talking Heads
Sparks
Genesis
Modest Mouse
Radiohead
Rip Slyme
Frank Zappa
Devo
They Might be Giants
The Orb

Nowadays:
P-Model/Susumu Hirasawa (takes up nearly half of my listening)
Van der Graaf Generator/Peter Hammill (takes up the other half)
and a bunch of other bands that I apparently, have no time to listen to:
Yellow Magic Orchestra/Haruomi Hosono
Roedelius
Denki Groove
Robert Wyatt
Soul Coughing/M. Doughty

Where can I buy music from them? I tried Amazon before but didn't find anything. What are good albums to get from them. I heard Cafe de Oni and I really like it. What album has that song?

That one's from their first album, Flash Papa. You're right, it's very tough to really obtain any of their stuff. Even Youtube has few tracks outside of their singles. I was able to get a couple of discs off Amazon but honestly I think Slsk is your best bet. Or you could PM me.
