    Trick of the Night – Sixtoes
    Have a listen to some of their Depeche Mode remixes – The Sinner in me is fantastic!

    Mazzy Star are good.

    If you’re into a bit of techno, Vegas by The Crystal Method is a great album. Nobody I know has heard of them but you will have heard some of their music.

    You’re going to have to try harder, I’ve heard of/got stuff by Neutral Milk Hotel, Mazzy Star, Townes Van Zandt, Tool.
    Eating February, by Star 69 is a great album, the only one they did. Thrum are a great little band, Monica Queen, their singer, sounds a bit like Maria McKee, backed by Neil Young, actually Johnny Smillie. They formed in 1992, in Lanarkshire. Recorded an album in 1993, called Rifferama. Broke up a bit later, and Monica went solo. I’ve just discovered, to my delight, that they got back together in 2011, and have an album in iTunes! I will be buying that very shortly.
    Tiger were another terrific band, sort of post-punk, played drone guitars with only two or three strings, had a moderately successful album called We Are Puppets, and a final one called Rosaria.
    Then there’s The Violet Hour, The Julie Dolphin, 6 Day Riot, The Submarines, Sniff ‘n’ The Tears, Slingbacks, Drugstore, Linoleum, Sam Phillips, Redbird, Pony Up!, Oh Laura, Mulu, Monkey Swallows The Universe, Mechanical Bride… 😀

    OK how about Songs on the Radio by The Geezers of Nazareth?

    Sona Fariq- Sona Fariq. B-team One Minute Silence basically, but brilliant live.

    Nobody else seems to remember the Slingbacks. Brilliant band, wouldn’t be summer for me without a bit of All Pop No Star. And also I had a massive crush on the singer :mrgreen:

    Saw Thrum in I think 13th Note back in the day.

    Band I enjoyed was called The Smiles, superb live, big sound, quirky, all dressed in crushed velvet, some cracking tunes. They got signed and the stylists got to work, stripped their personalities out, and dumbed down the sound, real shame. Think they only has 1 single…..

    Not exactly unheard of but I love Cosmo Jarvis. Akira The Don is good too.

    Don’t know how well known these are in Britain..

    Rammstein – Herzeleid

    Or their second album Mutter.

    Saw them in Braunschweig at the beginning of their career Probs 100 people turns up..now they fill stadiums.

    An American friend of mine took me to see The Reverend Horton Heat in Oxford. Fantastic Psychobilly.

    Guffy Trousers – The Sound of Trumpets.

    Their third album “Is that a Quacking Duck?” is also a gem.

    I believe the OP was looking for something that wasn’t mainstream. Yes they’ve sold sh*tloads in the US, but you’d be surprised of the amount of people who haven’t heard of them over here.
