(Please post songs, so we can find out about them)

Anyways, my vote goes to The Pillows. A completely obscure Japanese Indie band. The only thing that they get any recognition for is doing the soundtrack to Fooly Cooly. I think they are a great band and more people need to find out about them.

Heres some songs

That should give you an idea of what they're like. I think they are such an excellent band. Anyway post songs for your nominated obscure band.

The Sugi Tap. (If anyone here remembers Eve 6, the Sugi Tap was formed by 2 former Eve 6 members during Eve 6's hiatus before they reformed.)

When crying don't help
You can't compose yourself
It's best to compose a poem
An honest verse of longing
Or a simple song of hope...

the pillows are my favorite band!
Here are some more songs by them. These are not on FLCL, as the above ones are.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=VPHZQP3x_Io
http://youtube.com/watch?v=NtfxDeF2mUg (Great guitar solo)
http://youtube.com/watch?v=ggEsAoSGQd4
http://youtube.com/watch?v=-oya2v5pJBk (Great singing)

All of their songs are amazing.

Here are some of my nominations:
Tokyo Police Club
http://youtube.com/watch?v=DPY5vTbLhs8

Oceanographer (No song available, that's how unknown they are. Check out the song Stations)

Say Hi To Your Mom (Same as Oceanographer, no song available due to their obscurity...check out Blah Blah Blah.)
http://www.amazon.com/Impeccable-Blahs-Say-Your-Mom/dp/B000FUF86G/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-3950368-4627152?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1193536384&sr=1-1

There...listen to the sample of Blah Blah Blah

There are more, but I'll limit it to this for now.

So many amazing unknown bands in the world. Most are indie.

The Olivia Tremor Control deserve some mainstream love. They don't perform anymore, but their albums are all awesome.
