|With the exception of Orange Juice (and possibly Tiger), none of the bands on this site were particularly well known. History is littered with groups who dazzled a few while the many remained unaware. This site rescues them from obscurity and tells their story. Each band was personally memorable and in a kinder world would have enjoyed more success - gone they may be, but forgotten? Most definitely not. As for Orange Juice, the absence of a decent discography on the internet at the time led me to make one myself. Thanks to the following people for their help.|
