A good US webhost

Hi all,

A thoroughly mundane question: Can anyone recommend a good (not free) webhost for our band's new (vapourware) website, in the US? I'm looking for a US webhost (although I'm based in Australia) because most of the net is there, and I'll be providing big (5->10meg) mp3 files for download.

I need something which allows me to do some server side processing, with a server side database (msaccess will do, but an actual c/s db would be good).

An asp server would also be useful (or perl, but it would be easier for me to stay in MS land, boo hiss).

I need to be able to put a pretty large amount of stuff on the site (100meg plus?). Some e-commerce stuff (ie: the ability to sell things) would be nice, but is not necessary.

Any ideas?
