Shoulda been HUGE... Not that you cared.

Tao of the One Inch Punch
Tao of the One Inch Punch
"One Inch Punch - Hip Hop Punk Rock. A dark, twisted Justin Wharfield masterpiece."
Diving For Pearls
Diving For Pearls
"Diving For Pearls - AOR perfection without the cheeeeeze. Sunshine, Summer and song. Now re-released"
Big F
Big F
"The Big F - Grunge filtered through Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Blues rather than the Pixies and Heavy Metal as Nirvana et al seemed to be. It groooooves."
Glow Stars
Glow Stars
"Heather Nova - Cool, ghostly chill, like a scarier (less intense) PJ Harvey. The high point before her descent into MOR hell."
Sona Fariq
Sona Fariq
"Sona Fariq - Best album of the 90's. Out rages Rage Against The Machine, out funks Faith No More, out metals anything Nu."
Little Plastic Castle

"Ani Difranco - You're buying Alanis CD's? Why? And Pink? Why, why, why, why? Anything by Ani is good for the empowered woman. This is friendliest."
Selling Out for the Sucker
Selling Out for the Sucker
"Cortizone - Where are you all? Buying Deftones and Linkin Park? Again? Heavy, intelligent and tuneful and sold about 2 copies. You guys are DUMB."
Halo
Halo
"Girl Of The Year - Released three or four singles during the Britpop years. Better than almost anything of the time (Stereophonics, Cast etc) but did you make them mega-stars? Did you b******s!"
Arc Tan Gent

"Earthtone 9 - If you're really going to do all that Nu-Metal stuff at least go for the good s**t. Criminally ignored."
Puressence
Puressence
"Puressence - Best band in Britain apart from Radiohead. Emotive rock, massive soundscapes, jaw-droppingly good. Oh, what do you care? Go and buy Coldplay again..."
Under a Sun
Under a Sun
"Witness - Yet more proof that brilliant songwriting, anthemic tunes, soaring West Coast (of Wigan) guitar lines and 'wall of sound' country tinged rock brilliance doesn't mean world domination."
Greatest Gift

"Liberty 37 - Should've been as big as U2. Sigh... Great songs, melodies, lyrics and honest emotion and in enough abundance to spread around countless other bands."
I Am the Greatest
I Am the Greatest
"A House - Quirky, erudite, spiky and tuneful. Like James Joyce by They Might Be Giants. Also recorded the 2nd best Christmas song EVER in 'Here Come The Good Times'"

Luke Haines is Dead: A Collection of Auteurs, Luke Haines & Baader Meinhof A-sides, B-sides, Classics, Out-takes, Sessions and Rarities
"Luke Haines - 63 tracks by one of the greatest songwriters alive. I'll give you Damien Rice & Kevin Tihista but for Blunty and the rest '...Is Dead' means it's curtains."
Rubbernecking

"Elcka - More masterful Brit Pop goodness that should have been. Elegant, tuneful and big in ambition; it's rock with a class that many bands (Killers) would ... uh... kill for."
The Driven
The Driven
"The Driven - Cool band. Punky, spunky, mature and tuneful all the way from Ireland. Released about three singles and this album that got lost in the Britpop stew. I'd sell my Granny for this one."
Achtung Bono
Achtung Bono
"Half Man Half Biscuit - Don't really want them to be big but if any band should be on a stipend from the state it's this lot. Utterly brilliant in every way. This is the perkiest, but it's all good."
Young Man's Blues
Young Man's Blues
"Rock City Angels - Bluesy R&B Rock akin to Aerosmith or prime era Stones. Geffen so believed in them this debut was a 3-sided double album. But they saw a golden goose & ran with the GnR behemoth."
Today's Empires Tomorrow's Ashes
Today's Empires Tomorrow's Ashes
"Propagandhi - Quite simply the greatest punk band still plying their trade. Drop this into a Pistols/Clash/Bad Religion/Crass/whoever argument about who's punkest and win hands down!"

"Enuff Z Nuff - Dodgy name apart, for a band that have been around decades and released a squillion albums, they still haven't put a foot wrong. Beach Boys, Beatles & Sunset Strip. Niiiiice!"

"This description hs been removed because you're all clicking on this list expecting Buffy dvd's. I'm gonna keep it just for the music :o) This show should still have been huge, tho."
Free Love

"Peppercorn - Rootsy if not original this is a fine mix of Tracy Chapman, Lenny Kravitz and Jack Johnson. There is a strong Bob Marley influence going on, too."
Burning Tree
Burning Tree
"Burning Tree - Peerless, smooth rock with a subtle 60's/funk groove. Shoulda been... Guitarist Marc Ford went on to join and get kicked out of The Black Crowes."
Tied & Tangled
Tied & Tangled
"Glitterbox - Yet more proof that ticking all the right boxes doesn't guarantee success. Think The Killers indie strut and suss spliced with a dash of INXS rock arrogance. Shoulda been a contender..."
Through the Veil
Through the Veil
"Claytown Troupe - Back in the late 80's this lot were the only real alternative to The Cult. More anthemic and more authentic than Astbury & Co's rawk; they even broke the top 40 before disappearing."
