Sometimes I get annoyed when people talk about how obscure the bands are they like, but so much hipster garbage is mainstream these days!

What's your favourite obscure band? I love Neutral Milk Hotel. They're an indie/folk band that write sorta experimental/weird lyrics about monsters and Jesus.

The music i listen to is so obscure, it hasn't been invented yet. And when it does get invented, I will be the only one able to hear it.
No ego-inflating quotes nor stupidly long signatures to be found here.

Move along.

Maybe The Pop Group, a super cool post-punk band. I dunno if it's even in print in the US anymore, but their debut, Y, is one of my all time favorite albums. Their music had elements of everything from punk to dub reggae to free jazz.
Quote by jdrier21
Screaming Female! they r pretty weird

They're pretty cool, my band has played with them a couple of times.

The Sound. A pretty little-known post-punk band from England back in the '80s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0FKEDexivA

Alternatively, Health. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUbJuNvO03M

EDIT: The Pop Group are pretty good. Damn funky, too.

either Cursive or Abandoned Pools, although this being a music site and all, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people in here that know of both

No offense, but how are Neutral Milk Hotel or Iron and Wine obscure?

My "obscure" list:

Fyfe Dangerfield
Amusement Parks on Fire
Mono
How to Destroy Angels
American Football (not really obscure, but they only had one album so it's kind of obscure)
Catherine Wheel
The Comas

WIZ?EDIT: Fuck... Yep, I fell for it.

Well not really THAT obscure, But Extreme, Living Colour, and Everclear

Yes they all had some big songs but a lot of people today haven't heard of any of them, with the exception of Guitar Hero fans

Loudness is a great speed metal band from the 80's that is quite obscure. I found out about them from Paul Gilbert (he mentioned them.)

You just said you didn't mean obscure as in not well known so why would 7000 views matter?

Our Beds are Time Machines.

Local band from a few cities over. Haven't been making tunes for a little while now, but they were amazing. Fall of Troy-ish math rock sound, and just loads of fun.


In terms of label signed bands, I'll say Suzukiton. Virginia instrumental sludge band.
