... Yeah? They're not THAT obscure of a band.

Maybe not as obscure as Kaoru Abe, but I thought they were pretty obscure.

Haha, remove your head from your arse dude, other people have heard of the so-called 'obscurities' you apparently pride yourself on knowing.

I don't really pride myself on anything. I was just happy to know that you knew about them. Where I live, most people do not know of artists like them.

I was semi-joshing with you. I'm the same with some bands. Rest assured, you'll have my vote on this one, you got As The Bluebird sings? I think that one may be a little better, toughy though.

Yea, I've got that. I just thought Through the Ides of March would've been an appropriate album to start off with (As the Bluebird Sings is a bit less accessible for some). Dry Land is their most accessible album, but it really doesn't exemplify that Whisper in the Noise sound like their debut and Bluebird..

Here's another nomination



The Telescopes - Taste (1989)
This was the band's debut album and it's a very nice collision of JAMC-esque noise and feedback, snarling punk intensity, and some nice experimental spaced-out moments in the vain of Spacemen 3. It was a key influence on the shoegaze scene that followed in the early-90's and even right up to the present day.
