ITT: Bands That You Might Have Missed
Last week, I learned about SPARKS, and it turns out they're really prolific and famous, but was never exposed to them because I only listen to /mu/.
So what are some bands that you rarely see mentioned, but are instant hooks that you feel you want to spread?
Here's some Sparks
Kimono My House (1974)
>hyper pop, glam rock, fun!, experimental and exciting
I don't know if this counts, but I rarely seen The Minders mentioned in E6 threads, but they're simple and cute.
The Minders - Hooray for Tuesday
I personally love this band, but it's virtually nonexistant on /mu/. Combines art rock, experimental rock, progressive rock, pop, classical, space rock, and like a million different things. I remember the first time I heard them, I thought it was like Marilyn Manson or something, but it turned out into something else.
I see Pere Ubu posted about surprisingly infrequently on here considering they're one of the quintessential post-punk groups. Even in post-punk threads I don't see them as often as other bands like This Heat or The Pop Group. I also only bothered listening to them earlier this year despite having first heard about them ages ago.
They're probably the best post-punk band in my opinion. Dub Housing is their best album.
Pretty good samefagging. You do know Sparks is talked about all the time here, especially that album? It's on a good amount of 3x3 threads, and it's in recent purchase threads a lot. Don't blame /mu/ for you not lurking enough.
It's not the most popular in America, I honestly haven't talked to anyone who has heard of it, even older people. If anyone has it's usually because it was in the movie Kickass.
