Utopia

I was a massive Todd Rundgren fan in the 70's and when he formed Utopia (the big 6-piece version) I loved that music as well. But he sort of lost me when he pared the band down to 4 members and went from progressive rock to more of a power pop sound. I still bought the records but the music just didn't grab me the way the early version did.

Both incarnations had a niche following and I never really thought they would become that popular. However, even though the fan base wasn't huge, they were pretty committed for the most part.

Saw them at The Rusty Nail in BR circa 1990. Incredible.


I've seen them at least half a dozen times, in bars, clubs and arenas. They're incredible every time, consistently one of the best live shows out there. Pure energy from start to finish.

Another band I think should be bigger is probably a bit more on the obscure side of things. Shinobi Ninja.

I feel like I say L7 on everything, but them. They didn’t sell a lot of records, but they have a loyal fan base that brought them back. They still kick arse in their 50’s.

They have a documentary on YouTube called “Pretend We’re Dead”. I highly recommend everyone watch it.

They keep getting better and better and when I go to shows a majority of their fans are still college age kids so there’s still hope for a breakthrough. It really sucks they had to stop touring on their last album (Covid). It was great and they could’ve gotten a lot of traction on live broadcasts (such as KEXP) and opening for larger bands. Sorry, I love those guys.

Fishbone. Pretty good Doc called “Everyday Sunshine” about them, and why they didn’t get over the top with radio.
