- Obscure bands that the world should know about but doesn’t…..
Oh I like this sort of thing!
Life Without Buildings. Unfortunately they only produced one album – In Any Other City – but it was excellent. One of their singles featured in the original Earthed film; The Leanover.
Temple of the Dog – another one ablum wonder, and not really a band, more of a collaboration between the remenants of one band and elements of Sound Garden. But it was a collaboration that produced a brillian album and led to the formation of Pearl Jam.Posted 8 years agoMr AgreeableSubscriber
There are a lots of bands and recording artists out there who never got their due or were ripped off in some way. Including some really well-known ones, paradoxically. Cheesyfeet’s posts about X-Factor winners reminded me that it’s seldom the people who have the talent that make the money…Posted 8 years ago
good to see Swervedriver above.
Anyway, my go and I think you should all listen to the Black Angels, especially the first album. Stomping dark psychedlic guitarry stuff. The band are great, they all swap instruments throughout a gig which is impressive. I like, I like alot.Posted 8 years agoOllyMember

all ace, all deserve more recognitionPosted 8 years agochakapingSubscriber
The Fall are the archetypal cult band though, I’m sure they’ll get their dues eventually.
A mention for the Jazz Butcher (who incidentally has a sing called Southern Mark Smith), a brilliant songwriter and lyricist who might have been huge if he was a bit less clever-clever.Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
This kind of follows on from somebody asking for some new music ideas, and a couple of bands I like have been mentioned here; The Dears, Sleater Kinney, Sparklehorse, (responsible for one of the most incoherently drunken but still amazing gigs I’ve ever seen), and Andrew Bird. I’d add Hillman Minx, who bought me and a mate a drink after their support slot ‘cos we were enjoying them so much, Tiger, Mechanical Bride, The Joy Formidable, Ooberman, Pretty Girls Make Graves, and Bellatrix.Posted 8 years ago
