Edward Hotspur & Bands No One has heard Of

So when I was asked to participate in this birthday surprise I was probably the first person to reply back to the initiator and go “YAY I like birthdays, but what do you mean, I don’t understand what to do, help me, I don’t get it, wah wah wah.. ”

He’s since explained it all to me (and I still don’t get it, really) but I have managed to work out when 8am EST is and I am gonna try my best to keep up with the cool kids by posting on my allotted theme of:  Bands No One has heard Of

Now anyone who knows me knows I don’t do music.

Yes, I have no life but whatever .. this is not about me, it’s about someone else.

In the interests of doing a good job of this, I Googled ‘little known music’ today at the office ..  To promptly presented with roughly 34785697 pages of information about less-than-mainstream bands.

I can honestly say I’ve never heard of any of them. On the other, our birthday boy, Ed, (who is terribly cool) will doubtless know them all.

But I digress. As I sifted thru the long list of bands no one knows of, I was chuckling away reading some of their bios and listening to their songs. Some I  can see why they are unknown and think they really ought stay that way. Others, well .. they were interesting *sheepish grin* I did find as I trawled thru them all that my list contained some amusing names so I thought I would try and cluster them logically.

Eventually, I realised this would give you all too much insight into the dodgy way my mind works and so I stopped and here they are at random. ish .. 😉

PS the ones not hyperlinked are because when I attempted to open anything on the web with that name I got blocked (and probably black listed with the IS department to boot!)

Rabbit Junk.
Kidney Thieves
Bright Eyes

Team Sleep
In the Mausoleum

Now you choose: will Edward respond with a Run On Sentence or an Inappropriate Pun?

  1. You are definitely one of the cool kids! (Actually, it’s you who makes Hotspur cool by association.)

  2. Torture Division. Bwahahaha! Love it.

    Happy happy, Hotspur!

  3. Ed is either the musical savant of the ages or he just randomly picks bands with interesting names because he is tone deaf and doesn’t want us to know. Good post.

  4. Hahaha!! I think OOMPH! is my favorite!

  5. Holy Crap! This is the best! I’m just getting started on all this stuff. Wow! I’m impressed.

    Okay, I have heard of Bright Eyes, of course, and I have a Kidney Thieves album; Team Sleep is Chino’s side band (Chino Moreno from Deftones); Failure is where one of the guitarists from A Perfect Circle came from; REVOLTING COCKS ARE GODS!; Cramps – Bikini Girls With Machine Guns!; and probably everyone’s heard of Enigma, whether they realize it or not. I’ll check out the other stuff later. So many clocks… so little time.

    Thank you Fred! This was excellent! I’m so excited! What to choose…..

  6. I’ve never heard of any of these bands, but some of those names were sooooo interesting!
