bit pricey some of these obscure albums - can't they be obscure and cheap ? (joke) - MORe

Great early 90's band and album. The band dissapeared after 2 albums and an Ep.

These requirements tend to cancel each other out. For instance, I could list many very obscure avant-garde albums which are neither cult nor trendy. Likewise, I could name many cult and trendy albums which are not obscure. Once something becomes cult and/or trendy it ceases to become obscure, and any genuinely obscure album is not cult and certainly not trendy.

In other words, I find Peter Anderson's coments about certain choices on here rather fussy.

Yes I agree. I think you did know what KO meant. However give us the two lists so we might evaluate your argument

"I think you did know what KO meant"

Yes, you're right. I thought I did know what KO meant which was why I posted Comus, but they were rejected, and other choices which I thought were good have also been rejected. Nurse With Wound should definitely be considered, but I suspect they will also be rejected because somebody on here has heard of them. Go figure...

Very interesting list, I've not heard of any of these. I will be investigating. Thanks mancheeros

...of course you could develop a sense of humour and read them with tongue firmly in cheek ;)

One band that may interest you KO, is Ex Reverie's The Door Into Summer This is an American (I think) folk album and for £2.00 new is worth a punt.

How about Battersea Power Station? Culty because of their association with Bowie, but obscure because it's not obtainable at a reasonable price.
(Yes, I know "reasonable price" is subjective, but in this case it is far more than I am willing to pay....)

Pretty much any Bill Nelson album since A Love That Whirls. If I had to pick one, I'd probably go with After The Satellite Sings:
