Scott Wilk & The Walls only video:  "Suspicion"

In the 80s he almost became the next "big thing".  If anyone is interested here's a great article about his brush with fame and fortune:

Almost Famous:  How unsung singer Scott Wilk made the greatest lost album of the 80s

So who's your favorite unknown musician?

The Clouds

(hint: They might not the ones you've heard of!)

I discovered them only in the past several years, far past their break-up, I'm afraid, but their music grew on me rapidly.

Other great tracks (of the many): 1 2 3 (a favorite)

I am sure there are some people on here that have heard of this group, but for the benefit of those who have not they are fantastic, and I got to see them live at the Vintage Festival and were superb

Nordman!!

They're popular in Sweden in the "folkpop" genre but probably not that well known outside of there. I'm a sucker for a nyckelharpa.

Om Gud var jag

Du behover

And I'm currently take with this song by the Japanese band Flow. But they are probably well known to anime fans.

I'll use any opportunity to promote the great synth-goth band ThouShaltNot, who has a new steampunk-inspired release right now.

Without question, my pick for this thread would be Alien Fashion Show.  Part of the swing revival of the mid/late 90s, I discovered them when they opened for the Brian Setzer Orchestra.  They were the house band for Anne Rice's annual Halloween bash in the years before she got religion; their lead singer wrote this song during one of their stays there.

My absolute best discovery of last year: Jen Olive

Her first album Warm Robot was released on Andy Partridge's APE label.

All great stuff, thanks!

Killashandra, you've got to check out Colin James & the Little Big Band.  Pretty well-known in Canada but not so much elsewhere.

Capillary Action
.........................
"It was designed according to ancient ziggurat mound proportions used in votive worship. Like the mounds it collects energy and recirculates it. In this case the Dome collects energy that escapes from the crown of the human head and pushes it back into the Medula Oblongata for increased mental energy."

"Aisle 6" was pretty popular here stateside, but the rest of the album lacked airplay.

"Aisle 10" was featured in the Xbox console game called "Jet Set Radio Future"  (one of very few console games I really enjoyed!)
