Bands/artists you've only recently discovered………
I recently re-discovered the Stranglers. Loved everthing from the Hugh Cornwell era but what came after didn’t do it for me. I recently heard a couple of tracks from the 2012 album ‘Giants’ and on the strength of that bought both ‘Giants’ and the 2006 album ‘Suite 16’. Cracking albums and back to form in my opinion. Baz Warne, lead singer for the last 10 years has got it right without sounding identical to Hugh Cornwell.Posted 4 years agoBoba FattMember
…….and now wondered why you never listened before?
The Hold Steady. Bought “Boys and Girls in America” on a whim in the HMV 2 for a tenner a couple of years ago and never listened to it until about 6 months ago. Fantastic stuff.

Green Day, believe it or not. Saw their Reading set on TV and I was sufficiently impressed to buy American Idiot, Kerplunk & Dookie. more to follow.
Faith And The Muse. sort of goth, been around for a while & I think Tazzy has pointed me in their direction before now.Posted 4 years agokonabunnyMember
but actually I only came to them via:
And for a while now, the Jim Jones Revue:
And then more recently, some old Prodigy stuff, which you forget how interesting/new it was when it came out:

The Go! Team – found them via Radcliffe & Maconie , and shortly after that they played their final gig and split up. Bum
Saw them lotsa times, fantastic live band with a great party atmnosphere at gigs, especially the early ones.
New to me are Toy – who seem to have an interesting sound which combines 1980s jangle pop and krautrock…Posted 4 years ago

The Wedding Present.
25 years too late for George Best. Obviously I was around at the time and KNEW about them, but only recently thought WOW.
Triggered by my recent reading of John Peel’s autobiography/biography. I didn’t feel the same about the Bhundu Boys, mind 🙂Posted 4 years ago
