New Bomb Turks
Man or Astroman They started to suck when the original guitarist left
Back in the day I saw a band from Kansas called Dorothy that blew me away and I was very surprised they never made it big.
Stone Temple Pilots (before kicking heroin)
I just listened to Core today while doing some wrenching. Good stuff.
The Presidents of the United States of America
Has there ever been a band with a longer name?
Were you a Friend of Dorothy?
were great for a nice mellow listen too.
the Jesus Lizard
Angel'In Heavy Syrup
so many more
Ahhh - your list made me think of Spacehog, narlus.
They are still around playing in Seattle fairly often - I think a new CD is due for release soon. Or so I heard on the radio.
Thats a lot of cool for one decade...
Tad - Inhaler
I dunno what that means, but I did buy the band a couple rounds after their set and offered nothing but praise and free promo/CD cover design as well and the front man was psyched by the praise.
the hard ons
Man! I was just listening to "In The Meantime" today! I won tickets to go see them from my local radio station back when I was 17. It was an 18 and over show though...
Heard the Hum song "Stars" song on a Cadillac commercial the other day. I liked that song in high school, guess I'm starting to get into their demographic.
So I of course flipped on the iPod and had to listen to it on my way to the store.
I'm not sure if I've seen that video before...
Also, big ups for the guy who said Stone Roses. I know I'm in the minority, but I think I prefer their second album honestly.
Yeah, I heard they broke up when their lead singer died.
Of course, I was in a suit working on the 20th floor of a major bank when another office drone informed me of the death of the most important musician in my life.
Ohhh - I forgot about that. I am excited when I hear it. Thanks for the reminder.
Weird, I listened to that song by Helmet yesterday - actually that whole album. Connection?
It would be interesting to see what Alice in Chains would be doing now if the original singer was still around.
Bob Mould solo and then Sugar.
I dunno, most of my favorite Alice songs were written by Cantrell, not Staley. If Cantrell was still doing a lot of their writing, they still could be pretty good. I did like Staley's vocals though.
Anyone know anything about the 4th studio album they're supposedly working on?
that entire Sub Pop/Amphetamine Reptile/Touch and Go/SST/Homestead roster was pretty tough to beat.

Good call on MOAM! Saw them twice before they got all "space age"...
One of my favorite bands from the other end musically of the spectrum from the 90's (who are still around): DROPDEAD
Sunday night WTF?? Cool place though.
Probably no connection, at least none that I know of.
Side note, the lead singer from Spacehog is married to Liv Tyler. Lucky guy...
I was a fan of Husker Du* in the 80s but couldn't get into Bob Mould solo. He still tours but I can't remember the last time I heard him on the radio.
Did you know they where two thirds gay? I didn't.
and this was the non-gay member:
Late night VH1? I think that is where I learned this fascinating news.
I still like the Makes No Sense At All / Mary Tyler Moore theme song.
