Re: The NEW/"Lesser Known" Music Thread

A couple from a local (local to me that is) band, who've been getting some national attention recently.
I've seen the frontman play in dozens of local covers bands over the years - he plays drums, as well as guitar.
In fact, I saw the first gig this line-up played - they were actually called 'The Red Wine Blues band' to start off with, but thankfully changed that quite quickly. Their first set was filled with cover versions, mostly from Joe Bonamassa's back catalogue - but as you can tell, they're now doing a modern rock sound with very little of the Blues influence on show.

So we've threads dedicated to past decades, but on a lot of websites I see folk stuck in a bit of a loop of liking what they know.

As I'm sure many of the musos & giggers on here will tell you, one of the best things about the music scene is seeing the unknown & new stuff come through. Between Covid, venues shutting left right & center since the 2008 recession, and lazy as fuck promoters who think posting a post on Facebook is "promotion" and worth 15%, up and coming talent have had a wobbly time in recent decades. Especially since the focus was hugely on Simon Cowell type setups which promised instant fame, but bummed the gullible fools for every penny they could earn him.

So here's a thread for those who like to experience the unknown. Whether it be brand new music, or it be old music buried away from the mainstream eye, I'd thrive on seeing folk post stuff that is/was under the radar.....

To start.......

Heffing Psycho posted this in another thread:



And then I'll chuck in Nottingham's own Church of The Cosmic Skull...........


Not just Nottingham... Church of the Cosmic Skull is from MAPPERLEY.

Probably well known to some of you as they have strong Nottinghamshire links, I have to put them in as my great nephew joined them just before lockdown and I hadn't heard of them. Here's Ferocious Dog

Yeah, I think you may have missed that a notable portion of the forum are "Doggers" and meet up at their gigs mate :)

Ken & Dan are local lads and Winnits is a HUGE fan of theirs. Good gig for your nephew! Cracking band. Wish him the best of luck with it.

I hadn't seen a reference to them before, but until he joined I probably wouldn't have taken a lot of notice, though I do like their stuff having listened to some.

Thanks he seems to be enjoying it from what his dad says.

Edit: To be honest I tend to avoid threads that mention dogging and doggers just in case it turns out to be of the Collymore variety. :)

I’ve played with one of their members in the past and he’s a great musician but I can’t get into their music. It’s of another century and appeals to a small minority.
I didn’t like The Levellers either for the same reasons and that was fuck knows how many years ago.

I did the Cambridge Folk Festival a few times in the past and it fits well with the kind of folk and world music that's seen there. If you look back I already posted a few of the bands that appeared there like Shooglenifty and Nickel Creek.
