The perfect obscure non dance track

Recommended Posts

Not all of them stayed obscure of course, but I was sorting out an old box of letters and found confirmation that I was indeed at one of their (probably) 1991 gigs. As I'm more and more coming to the conclusion that 1991 was when the world changed, I thought I would post this.

If I come up with a similar excuse, maybe I'll start a "non obscure" thread.

Or maybe someone else will.




Pre edit: On the assumption that nobody else will post to this thread, I'll keep posting. It's not spam if nobody is eating.

I've tried to keep on topic with obscure and recalling this. This is jangling New Zealand Indie pop from the mid eighties, super obscure, super cool.

Double Happy "The Others Way"


I like it.

I'd like to think the Jesus and Mary Chain were fans but then they looked out the window and it was Glasgow. ☹️

Here is another one - also from Oxford in the early 90's, but... different.

"Weather With You" - Crowded House:


Not exactly obscure but a class act for sure, the into is so 60s west coast and channelling Buffalo Springfield. Finn brothers were great songwriters, here's one of theirs covered by the great Richard Thompson accompanied by is lad Teddy.
