Grand National-Kicking The National Habit (2004). A gorgeous pop album with Police influences.
James Hardway-Moors And Christians (2000)- A fantastic little Jazz/Funk album with lot's of African influences that is easily accessible.
Kings X-Gretchen Goes To Nebraska (1989)-A fantastic hard rock album that eschews a formulaic sound and incorporates soulful harmonies and a slight funk edge.

Maybe I'm just old, but Simon & Garfunkel are very well known & highly influential. As for Buffalo Springfield, you might have one there.

Perhaps it's only because I've been thinking of this lately - but the album Secret Swingers by Versus was great & the band should be a more well known 90's indie rock band. (By the way, since I only have the album on - well, album - I would appreciate anyone hooking me up with mp3's).

Another band - Follow For Now, they were a late 80's funk-metal-hip hop band that were awesome. Unfortunately Living Colour & 24-7 Spyz stole much of the thunder of the genre leaving FFN just "another Black funk-metal band".

Redd Kross

Made the most perfect punk / psychadelic influenced power pop album ever made in Third Eye at a time when people were only really interested in listening to crap like Alice In Chains & Pearl Jam.

Follow For Now. I have not heard of them before. I was into this scene at that time. You forgot Fishbone too lol.

House of Love - Self Titled from 1991

Their second self titled album, Coldplay before there was a Coldplay, Oasis before there was an Oasis, sadly overlooked, came a little too soon for the Britpop explosion to make it big

Dunno about that , House of Love were the next big thing pre-Oasis.
Pick up any music magazine between 1988 & 1991 you could guarantee House Of Love & My Bloody Valentine would be featured somewhere.

You know - I actually typed out Fishbone, but figured I would get flamed for calling them metal when they aren't really. Still - same typecast band.

Follow For Now was out of Atlanta & only had 1 album, though the album sounds very tame b/c the producer replaced the drummer with a more sedated session drummer. I would recommend the Public Enemy cover She Watch Channel Zero as an introduction if you happen to find any of their songs.

Correct and The House of Love album was'nt really that great either. I was more into stuff like Loop and Ride at this time.

I think The Gorillaz - Demon Days was too quickly passed up. It had 2 big radio singles, and went platinum and all, but it seems like people have already completely forgotten about it. I think it might be the album of the decade.
