    Actually "School of Fish" if we are talking about the same band. Their first album is Grrreat. I am not sure they are that obscure though. They were pretty popular and on MTV in the early mid 90s. Three Strange Days was in pretty heavy rotation (when MTV played music).

    A band that had a Top 10 hit in Canada, the US, and Australia, and made the Top 15 in the UK doesn`t count as obscure.

    I'm terribly sorry. I wasn't aware of your requirements for inclusion. I'll watch it from now on. I promise...

    Five Eight. Not really obscure to the ATL/Athens area. The rest of the world?

    Saw them open for The Kinks @ Winterland before it went condo.

    I have a King Biscuit Flower Hour featuring Gentle Giant. Great stuff.

    Geography can contribute to obscurity, hardly anyone in the States heard of Band Maid until the last couple months

    I dig j-Rock...



    The Pillows are great. Not obscure in Japan...

    I loved everything about FLCL! and the Pillows are great.

    Yah Gentle Giant were just so strange and amazing, live or on record. The mindblowing thing about their live shows was, it made you realize every one of 'em played about five instruments, some of them really well. Really a loss when they threw in the towel.

    Augie March - my favourite ever Aussie band. Glenn Richards is an incredible lyricist / song writer

    Pittsburgh's own...Gathering Field. They had a nice run in mid 90s, even a contract with Atlantic records. Bill Deasy is a lyrical treasure to me.

    80s metal band from Arizona. This debut is excellent, then they ditched the singer and the next album sucked and they disappeared.

    If you like Captain Beefheart, King Crimson, and hot babes, look up a CD called Balloon Mood by Anja Garbarek. I don't think it was released in the US, but of course there's videos on Youtube

    This is the hot babe part, but the music is not representative. The rest of the record is considerably farther outside.
    But you'd want to start with the hot babe part, right?
