Bands that missed out (unjustly, in your opinion)

The Chameleons should be way more appreciated than they are. Superb band. They are playing the Fiddlers later this year (assuming the apocalypse is over by then).

 

 

I've been listening to Script of the Bridge a lot recently and it's just bloody brilliant

Only just found this thread, I do like to find new bands I actually like. I shall trawl through the posts later.

For me there are plenty, because I have latched onto a few bands that I think will be massive, and they never blow up.

Icicle Works , I thought would be bigger than the Bunnymen etc.
60 Foot Dolls I thought would be massive.
The Strypes should have been huge.
Locally Fortune Drive were fantastic, both live and on record, disgrace that some of them are now the 45s and not touring the World.
Gene , another one and of Course the mighty HMHB should be on everywhere constantly.

They were bloody good - I saw them supporting New Model Army and The Pogues (eclectic bill or what!) at the NEC.

Another band that I loved but never really made it big - The Men They Couldn`t Hang

I love TMTCH , saw both theirs and the Icicle Works 'farewell tours' at the Beirkeller. Ian McNabb does a great Icicle Works gig, goes on for hours , right through their catalogue. Saw it at the Fleece a few years ago, brilliant.

I now have an earworm of `Understanding Jane` and it`s YOUR fault!

I`m going to have to dig out `If You Want To Defeat Your Enemy, Sing His Song` - every track on that is a banger!

I was listening to the best of while tidying the garage earlier, being old school it was on cassette.

I was going to add The Wedding Present from around that time, locally there is the band Kill it Kid, who never seem to get a break. Very talented though.

I`ve got their album `George Best` somewhere.

This thread has prompted me to sort out my record collection and see what I`ve got that I`ve forgotten.

Not a band that "missed out" as such, as they had some success, but an album i have a lot of fond memories of circa 1990.

 

Remember getting off my tits and hearing this particular track. It sounded like it had the secret to the universe in there somewhere, and seemed to last about 3 hours   :laugh:

I see it;'s actually only 6 and a half minutes long.

While I listed some who I thought were underrated , I have to repeat Fortune Drive. Bobby Anderson, son of Carleen, has an amazing voice and they were fantastic live. It is a travesty they never got anywhere. I think they had the odd radio play, a mate saw them in a tent at Glasto where they got good feedback, then nothing. Funny how some make it and others?? Just luck I guess.
