Senses Fail are one of my current favourite bands at the moment. They're not the biggest band but they're getting bigger.

Yellowcard = Awesome band. They're CD "Ocean Avenue" is in my opinion the best pop-punk CD to come out in 10 years.

Not exactly a band that no ones heard of, but certainly a cult band and definitely not mainstream! I speak of course of the undisputed kings of Acid Rock... The one and only
HAWKWIND!!!

(Not that I'm a fan or anything
)

Anyway, recommended albums for the newbie...
Doremi Fasol Latido
Quark Strangeness and Charm
Levitation
Electric Tepee
Alien 4

The band has a fascination with science, science fiction, the paranormal and
ufo's / aliens and has been heavily involved with author Michael Moorcock over the years.

Here's the website www.hawkwind.com

Ahhh, Hawkwind! My old band played a cover version of "Hassan I Sahba" by Hawkwind. We also played it live a couple of times.

Lemmy from Motorhead used to play in Hawkwind. It was after he was kicked out he started Motorhead.

OK,... I might be showing my age here...... (frown)
LOL

BUT.... I had a thing about finding bands most of my friends didn't know about. Almost an obsession.....

Now, before I list some of my favorites, let me say I was an 80's Metal Head /Glam Rocker.... From one extreme to the other...... Poison to Metallica & everything in between....

So...... Here's MY list of bands that I really dug the crap out of, that a lot of people may not know about.

LOVE ON ICE
LIFE SEX & DEATH
LILLIAN AXE
JUNKYARD
SLIK TOXIK

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. But I LOVED those bands & their albums were GREAT!!!
(a couple of them only had 1 album..... *frown*)

Got some more bands to add too:

65DaysOfStatic
A Silver Mt. Zion (mostly Godspeed guys but with a very very out of tune singer)
Souls Vibrating in the Universe (A bit of post rock banter from Chelmsford in Essex)
Jeniferever (swedish post rock)
Fight Fire With Water (a bit more post rock)
Naciente Quartet (post rock/ nu-jazz mushed up)

I'm impressed, Hawkwind that is goning back... to when I was in my 30's, two more: "The Flying Burrito Brothers" and the "Bonzo Dog Band" - Neil Innes is uh, interesting.

Like Rap? Listen to a "before rap" rap - The Ozarks Mountain Daredevils - Arroyo. BTW: "Supe du Jour" of the Ozarks is promising a compilation disk soon with some unreleased jams with McCartney (and his talented brother Mike McGear) from the seventies.

I thought I was the only person outside of philly who knows g. love.

a long time ago I ran into a friend from college at a concert in Central Park and I asked him what he was up to. We were, maybe a year or two, out of college. He said he was promoting bands and he had just signed this awesome guy and his band. He had promo discs with him so he gave me one. It was G. Love (obviously). I've been listening to him ever since.
