Re: Your favorite band that never made it big... Thread
There was a very fine band from Atlanta called the Swimming Pool Q's. They appeared at the same the Athens scene was taking off and they rather got lost in that shuffle, so they didn't get the full national attention that I though they deserved. They're still around, I believe, but they, like a lot of Atlanta bands, were overlooked due to all the attention the Athens bands were getting at that time.
Really, even on a bad day the Swimming Pool Q's could blow REM right out the water, and their music was far more interesting, and better played, than that REM bunch.
