    The best band you've never heard of.

    Check out All Them Witches: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VteuWD_dIdk

    Remember Morphine? These guys are kind of like them, but with a guitar instead of sax, and more psychedelic, and drone-y than Morphine. Damn, this sounds really good to me right now.

    Whatchoo got?

    Good band but a bit dark for regular listening. I think they're a lot better than Morphine.

    Did you guys get 'The Music' over there?

    Finch, I thought Rush was your favorite. Weíve heard of them though.

    Iíve got nothing right now. How can one narrow it down to one with thousands of bands.

    This is a tricky thread, due to it's title. Not possible to share something unknown because the moment you do, it becomes known. The wording in the title implies that the unknown remains unknown.

    Perhaps a better thread title would have been, "The best band you'd never heard of".
    life is... "All About Bikes"...

    The guys I worked for as the roadie from 1968 to 2010 are still performing.

    The Sons of Champlin are fronted by two-time Grammy winner Bill Champlin.

    That was pretty cool. I don't think Gavin (Harrison, drums) was real excited playing that, lol.

    Finch have you checked out a Japanese metal band called Sabat? Surprisingly creative and original metal, mix of death, doom, and classic.

    Not to be confused with the British one of the same name.

    Not sure how many posts are in that thread, but really? You want me to scroll thru the whole thing to find out what you mean?

    Look at the title and what itís about. Many forms of plagiarism. You crossed it here. Same idea different subject.

    Thatís alright, few come up with new ideas for a thread around here.

    I'm a real big fan of their trifecta: Discipline, Beat, 3 Of A Perfect Pair. Saw them live with a lady friend- ran my fingers thru her hair as Belew sang "She is susceptible
    He is impossible
    They have their cross to share
    Three of a perfect pair
    He has his contradicting views
    She has her cyclothymic moods
    They make a study in despair
    Three of a perfect pair
    One, one too many
    Schizophrenic tendencies
    Keeps it complicated
    Keeps it aggravated
    And full of this hopelessness
    What a perfect mess."

    What a mess, indeed.

    That's whatís wrong with todayís society, and you follow suit Mr. Finch. No original thought process, stealing others ideas [thread ideas] is like covering a song from another band instead of writing it yourself.

    I've listened to a bunch of stuff from SMOD, and thought I liked a bunch of it, but most lost my interest pretty quickly. This album is a couple notches above the rest, still enjoy!

    Yeah, I remember them playing around but for some reason, I never got out to see them. I remember The Late Bronze Age playing a song called Chick, Chuck and Jaco. Saw them at the Moonshadow Saloon, if you're familiar with ATL clubs.

    For those that don't know, Bruce Hampton suffered a massive heart attack on stage at a big concert celebrating his 70th birthday and passed away shortly after. Lots of famous players had joined him that evening, including Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Chuck Leavell, Pete Buck, John Popper, and members of Phish and Wide Spread Panic. When he collapsed, the players and audience thought he was just acting and the musicians kept playing for a several minutes as he laid on the stage.

    I didn't know that. Wow, what a shame. He was a unique performer, to the end, apparently. I guess that era is now over, and I'm left with a bucketful of nostalgia.
