You need to listen to all of the following:

Duke Special
Future Chaser
Jeff Caylor
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Envy On The Coast

Especially Duke Special- can't understand why those guys aren't more popular.

I used to have a (vinyl) album by a band called Zeitgeist and they were not from Germany (there's a now a band by that name there)... they did an up beat cover of "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain"... was pretty good. Looked all over the net for them... nope.

Also I remember a band named "New England" they had a hit (?) Don't Ever Want To Lose You". I remember them because they opened for KISS when I saw them in Birmingham Ala. during the Love Gun tour.

Saw a blog on Yahoo... talked about "one-hit Wonders and where they are now"... I was surprised nobody remembers Paula Cole: "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?"

Check this site out for one hit wonders and their lyrics... http://www.lyricsondemand.com/onehitwonders/

I think I'll go check out Trampled by Turtles later this month when they come to town. I missed their show at ROTHBURY.

Marillion (Fish era - post-Fish is too Pop)

Spock's Beard

Way back when there was a decent radio station in my area they would play Marillion. I picked up and listened the heck out of Clutching at Straws. I'm not familiar enough with the band to know if it is Fish or post-Fish.

Well, you got yer roots or alt.country music:

Billy Bacon and the Forbidden Pigs (Love is Dead)
5 Chinese Brothers (Let's Kill Saturday Night)
Hayes Carll (Down the Road Tonight)
James McMurtry (Choctaw Bingo)
Amy LaVere (Washing Machine)
Kim Richey (Chinese Boxes)
Nathan 'the band' (Scarecrow)
The Gourds (Gin and Juice cover)

Then, you got yer weirdo music:

Regina Spektor (On the Radio)
The Pillows (Theme Music from Anime Series FLCL)
Pizzicato Five (Baby Love Child)
Shonen Knife (Cherry Bomb)
Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine (Brass Monkey)

OK, it's all pretty weird. But the really weird thing is, I grew up on Ska and punk - in the early 1980's, I was in SoCal, kicking it at Black Flag shows. Funny how things change.
