Fritz - not every act deserves a thread of its own. They're just not interesting enough. It's nice to have these occasional memorials to the also-rans.

Jeff W (zebedee), Thursday, 6 November 2003 13:01 (sixteen years ago) link

They're not alsorans though, that's the point! Except on here, where they are. Thus a topic of vague interest is created.

I don't get whether people are trying to post relatively unknown stuff or more well known bands that don't get mentioned. Because there has to be thousands of relatively unknown bands that haven't been mentioned like a bunch of localized stuff that never caught it's stride even if they were good

scooter (CaptainLorax), Thursday, 17 June 2010 02:51 (nine years ago) link

A post up thread suggested "Connee Boswell," but a thread search fortunately reveals this not to be the case. And of course, a search for the Boswell Sisters reveals even more results, including the probably correct claim that the Boswell Sisters invented rock and roll.

Hence my point that you could just dig up VA compilation and post bands you find on there
I'll test my theory by going through one VA on my computer

Thank You Friends: The Ardent Records Story CD 1
206. The Wallabies
207. The Ole Miss Downbeats
208. Icewater (not to be confused with Icewater Scandal or DJ Icewater)
209. The Honey Jug
210. The Goatdancers
211. The Badgers
212. The 1st Century

Now this thread would be more interesting if you searched for a band like moe. and it was unsearchable (and believe me I would like to discover that there is a band as popular as .moe that hasn't been mentioned yet on ILM)

I just spent 10 minutes searching more popular jam bands and unfortunately they were all searchable
However, I'll add one more band even though it was never popular

213. Mori Stylez (fusion - a distinct adventurous sound, notable use of bassoon/mandolin/clarinet and no piano/keyboards) Seek the album 'Rules For Rotation'. "If you like Henry Threadgill and other Knitting Factory–type jazz, Mori Stylez should be right up your alley"

scooter (CaptainLorax), Thursday, 17 June 2010 18:15 (nine years ago) link

BTW that Ardent Records compilation sounds really good! I don't think I ever listened to it

Crazy Cavan and the Rhythm Rockers. Thought with all the Britishes on this board they might have been mentioned in passing, even if derisively. Interesting to me that during the same 70s time-period in America, Sha Na Na were pretty much making a mockery of 50s pop, while these guys were seriously trying to keep alive/update the Sun Records sound. I've been loving this comp recently:

(Actually, like, the bestselling act in Norway for the past 25 years or so, but still pretty sure this will remain his only mention here)

The GeirBot (Geir Hongro), Wednesday, 27 November 2019 12:26 (two weeks ago) link

The band name makes them a pain in the hole to search, but Talons' don't seem to get a mention on here. If you're up for some creaking, odd folk music, somewhere between Scott Tuma's haunted back porch and a still-bearable Kozelek, this might be the thing. I can recommend Rustic Bullshit and Song for Boats (both on Spotify) or the After Talons' collection on Bandcamp (pay yer own price). It's all good.
