I've heard local bands that are better than some of the hacks on the radio and I've seen singers who are just "pretty" and use computers to alter their voices to sound better. What bands/singers are absolutely amazing but are relatively unheard of?
I love the band The Catherine Wheel (from the 1990s) and hardly anyone I know has ever heard of them. Their only "almost hits" were Black Metallic and Way Down. They were an absolutely incredible band with 6 albums. They never really made it big in the U.S., but since they made so many albums, hopefully that means they were more popular in other countries. I wish they would reunite!
