The Fall and Pavement are really quite dissimilar to me. The solo stuff from Malkmus I've passed on as well.

I think you need to be in the right mood to listen to stuff like WhiteHouse/Throbbing Gristle/Flipper/Einstrurzende Neubaten(sp?)/MBV/Merzbow/Boards of Canada(mellow)/Jesu/Boredoms/Boris/Sunn O))) , etc.
If you want to like stuff like Boredowms, etc try LIghtning Bolt. Some of the noise stuff is a little one dimensional, but LB is a little more accessible.
As far as Yo La Tengo, Solo Malkmus stuff and Silver Jews - I'll have to agree with ya - like a few songs, but they get little play. Although I'd rather hear that, than say, My Chemical Romance - bleh.
