bands your friends never heard of
so i saw a couple of cd's from some years back and that got me thinking about all of the random music i listened to in college that the majority of my friends had never heard of. and i'm not just talking about bands like ned's atomic dust bin who are only moderately obscure. i diving deeper into the thousand yard stares and the new fast automatic daffodils or mi phi me. the shit that people look at you funny when you say the names.
so what do you have in the old music locker?

I have records by everyone Camel Toad listed other than Mi Phi Mi. There are lots of other ones people mentioned that are in my vaults, too!
How about Cabaret Voltaire, Chapterhouse, Straitjacket Fits, The Verlaines, The Triffids.
How about Northside? They are pretty obscure, I would think.

Viva, I used to LOVE RevCo (revolting cocks) and forgot all about them. Now I think I'll go download their cover of Do Ya Think I'm Sexy. One of the best covers, ever..

For Flying Nun NZ guitar rock, though, I always liked Straitjacket Fits better. I saw them live in 1991 at the old Knitting Factory in NYC on the strength of the name, and they blew me the fuck away. They disbanded circa 1994, but the lead singer/guitarist has a pretty good new band called Dimmer.
Other obscure bands I love or have loved:
Hugo Largo (the best live band ever)
