Favorite band/record no one has heard of?


"Laid" by James

Ironically, there was a hit song on this record "Laid" but it's probably the worst track on it.

Anybody remember it/them? Simply incredible song writing. I saw 'em in '94 too and they put on a damned great live show.

I remember them in the early 90s... I thought Seven was a better record.. Like you said, that song was a pretty big hit (even before American Pie)... They were not my favorite britpop band of that era though...

Not only do I remember that but I saw the guy live touring to support it.

Mine would have to be Over the Rhine. They're an Ohio-based band that sounds a lot like Cowboy Junkies.

Over the Rhine - Give Me Strength

Over the Rhine - Born


I also love Curve from back in the day. Toni Halliday had a strange spell on me.

Curve - Coast is Clear

Here's a great record by a band you've never heard of. In fact, no one has ever heard of them. Because no one knows who they are. This is an acetate that was left around the recording studio, but somebody forgot to write the band's name on the label.

Too bad -- they deserve a smidgeon of immortality. You'll seldom hear a better imitation of the early Byrds.

Unknown band - "It's Been Nice Being Here With You"

I think people have heard of them, but they are never discussed here...

Wheat's "Hope and Adams" was the best album on 1999

This song was on this record, and subsequently re-recorded for their next record and that version ended up on the Elizabethtown Soundtrack

Wheat - Don't I Hold You

A couple more off that record...

Wheat - Off The Pedestal

Wheat - Body Talk Pt. 2

James always gets mentioned as a one hit wonder, but from the same album this is a pretty good song IMHO...

I'm sure tons of people are familiar with Brian Eno, but I never see anyone talk about his album Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy. It is brilliant, overlooked 70s art-pop (before he started doing ambient music for airports stuff).

You've never heard of him because he doesn't have an album out yet, but Krimh Kerim is an amazing musician. His solo work is heavy prog like Isis, Pelican, and Devin Townsend. He's mostly known as a drummer but plays all instruments.

Der Pestarzt

We Sleep In Skies

The Ocean's Darkness

i always liked the first record better, but tiger mountain is good. the record he did with john cale in '90 is some of his catchiest stuff.

Mick Cox Band - issued one lp - 1973. Now (obviously, and sadly) out of print. He subsequently played guitar in several Van Morrison bands. Found one song on youtube, but its probably the weakest of the 8 on the lp. Lucky to have a copy and had it ripped to mp3's.
