I mean, bands you say you like but you never actually listen to them.
Who would admit to it?

I always say I like Uriah Heep, but I couldn't name you one song.

I couldn't either, but I do like the Heep. I just only ever listen to them when I'm on (whispering) drugs.

The Mission

-- Curt1sss (curtis.stephens@g

As a reformed fan of the Mission, I must say....this is a very sad thing indeed. It's embarassing enough to admit to have been a Mission fan, but for someone to "front" as a Mission fan without ever having subjected themselves to the band's music is beyond tragic.

Nick Cave. Love the whole idea of him... hardly ever play his albums.

The "hardly" disqualifies you from this thread.

It's not that I akshully claim to like them, but I always use Budgie to describe lumpen 70s no-girl-fans-whatsoever boogie, without being that familiar with their actual records. The Bluetones serve the same function for imaginationless brown-leather-jacket-6th-form 90s indie.

There's also a category of bands that I've never heard and feel like i won't like -- two particular groups of trendy bands that have similar sounding names, which makes me all the more reluctant to listen to any of them.

Group 1: The Thrills, The Chills, The Spills, The Spits, The Stills (I'm not even sure if they're all real bands)

Group 2: The Black Keys, The Black Dice, The Black Eyes

I just told a female acquaintance of mine that I liked Jason Mraz (or it might have been John Mayer). I haven't heard note one. But I've read a lot about him.

Actually, it was more like, "Yeah, he's alright, I guess." Maybe that doesn't count.

Good idea. It can't be me, however, as Dave Matthews is also the guy where I go "oh yeah, not bad" and really I'm like wtf, what does he sing? It doesn't help that I confuse him with Matthew Sweet too. WTF does he sound like. Whatabout a TS?

We all know about the indie bands who made it good. But what about the ones who didn't quite get there? Record Collector magazine's new Modern Collectables LP explores some of the great lost bands of the late eighties and early nineties, launching with a special reunion gig at Corsica Studios in Elephant & Castle on TODAY featuring four of the bands from the compilation. If you're in London come along.

'Small Town Scenery' celebrates lost indie bands from the 1985-1995 period who gigged hard, recorded demos but never released any music on vinyl. "If you love the Stone Roses, The Las, backwards guitars, My Bloody Valentine and the best song that The Cure never recorded then you should buy this album," says Ian Shirley, who compiled the LP and looks after Record Collector’s ongoing vinyl series.

All of the bands share one thing in common - they never got a record deal even though some got close to the Holy Grail. "We were on the brink of making it and getting a deal with Food back then but they signed Blur instead!" states Damian Jones guitarist with Blindman's Rainbow, "after that it all fell apart!" Scat Apache lost a nailed-on deal when one of the duo decided that he just didn't fancy a career in music after all. Another band called Triple Blind played in front of 17 million people in the background on an episode of EastEnders because The Levellers didn't fancy it! The fee they received paid for the recording of their Stone Roses inspired track 'Stoke'. The other bands on the LP are Final Hour, Moloko (not that one!), Just For Kicks, Maureen and Kevin Paradise Showband, The Colour Mary, Colour Sound, Blue Velvet, Bellis, Pretty Green and Knocking Shop. 'Small Town Scenery' comes in a stunning fine art gatefold sleeve with liner notes that tell the story of all the bands.

I was once going to start a thread called "Imagine Imagine Dragons" where people like me who have never heard Imagine Dragons could describe what we think they sound like.

Bastard Lakes (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 24 February 2021 15:09 (one year ago) link

I've definitely never heard Imagine Dragons. But that's largely true of any act that just started/became popular in the past decade.

I think I've maybe heard one Animal Collective song. Unless they've done something so ubiquitously popular that it couldn't have failed to seep into my consciousness.

I am listening to Status Quo Live! (1977) which I'm sure is the first time I've ever heard them other than "Pictures of Matchstick Men." I'm a pretty recent convert to the joys of Foghat and ZZ Top, but I'm finding this pretty leaden and nondescript. Wiki:

Guitarist and singer Francis Rossi described Live! as "the worst album we ever made", continuing, "I always thought we were better than that.

Three Rings for the Elven Bishop (Dan Peterson), Monday, 19 September 2022 19:37 (one week ago) link

Is there a bad place to start with Faust? I feel like you really can't go wrong. The Tony Conrad collab was my entry point.

I heard the Tony Conrad collaboration (still my favorite thing they ever did) first, then Rien, which is "not really a Faust album" but kinda rules for whatever it is, and then heard the canonical/classic stuff later. Honestly, their "real" albums never did it for me, but the Conrad record continues to rule, especially the two-CD deluxe edition.

but also fuck you (unperson), Monday, 19 September 2022 19:39 (one week ago) link

Quo were the UK's missing link between CCR, Neu!, The Pirates and Canned Heat, if you want to push a theory to its absolute limits. And yes their singles were catchy. Also they weren't as simplistic as everything thinks. "Quo" is the best album to start with, but the whole run from Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon to Blue For You is pretty unimpeachable. After that they fell of a cliff artistically and got a lot more popular as a result.

Dalek was so much the splendor ov galactic backpacker hip hop---and then they met Faust---my ancient Voice take follows:

October 5th, 2004 4:50 PM Issue 40

Faust vs. Dalek
Derbe Respecte, Alder
Staubgold

Not so long ago, a young Jersey trio of prodigious mad hiphopologists, Dalek,
undertook a European tour. How they suffered! Until rescued by an old German
kombo of legendary mad progologists, Faust. Transcription of (ob)session
follows:
Facedown bass-clown chews through plaster cast appeal and last appeals.
Artillery fire falls like fossils, into single phylum. Spinal columns of beats
stack, driven home, bent high; remixing bricks, carpets, and windows. In some
crumbling rumble's scratch, soundbeast crawls on. Barrel tongues roll years.
Inventory takes itself, junkyard ripples like hide riding a horsefly:
Groovation gathers. A thin blue flame suspends, not unlike the aural aura of organist
Larry Young, but he died long ago. Miles and Jimi never played together, but
he played with them both. It is also not unlike the gas-jet flame Miles's
autobio claimed to be his earliest memory, seen across a field of whitest stove
top. Atmosphere waits out the needle of such a tiny thrill. But its point has
been made. And if the listener's ear-hole cherry should regrow itself, sealing
feeling? Well. CDs last a while. This one will be waiting.

A band I was in released a 3” CDR of Frank Zappa covers after realizing that none of us had heard Zappa before. We picked the songs with the dumbest lyrics and looked at the tabs and recorded covers without ever listening to the real song. We still have never heard any Zappa and intend to keep it that way.

For some reason I often find myself listening to artist solo careers before hearing the band that made them famous. For example Gene Clarke before The Byrds, Donald Fagen before Steely Dan, Destroyer before The New Pornographers, Mount Eerie before Microphones.

This phenomenon aside, artists I don't remember if I ever listened to but that are still on my radar include Cabaret Voltaire and Scott Walker. Famous ones that I'm not interested in giving a proper album listen include the Stooges / Iggy, R.E.M, Yo la Tengo, Nico, the Kinks, CCR...

Just realized some of the connections in xpost Indexed's never-heard toppermost:
Howlin' Wolf is one of the best mostly electric blues artists.
Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band were often tagged as Howlin' Wolf meets Ornette Coleman, way before Ornette plugged in.
Janis Joplin, especially with Big Brother, was what was much later tagged as mutant blues (as was CB), with a yowling vibrato that could shiver the timbers of any melody line without breaking it, like Ornette.
She and he both came from Texas, like
The 13th Floor Elevators, who, legend has it, once asked her to sing for them, when Roky was in Rusk, I think. What might have been!

Mount Eerie before Microphones

Huh... I don't know anything about this guy

Under both The Microphones and Mount Eerie, "Elverum has been instrumental in shaping the landscape of current indie rock."(54) Isabel Zacharias claimed that Elverum, "to a pocket of Pacific Northwesterners, is more folkloric deity than musician" with his releases under The Microphones propelling him to "indie-god status".(55)

One thing a lot seem to have in common is feeling certain they wouldn’t resonate without cultural context and/or after hearing decades of bands influenced by their music.
