    The Thread of Forgotten and Underrated Music

    Do we have a place to share music you wish had a wider audience, then and now? If so, shoot me down in flames, point me there and lock this shit up.

    Grotus: Foetus-influenced bluesy industrial band that split up right after the awesome Mass (1995)

    The Doors final two albums Other Voices and Full Circle ​are now available for download and you can get a physical release via an import, but they have not been released, officially, in the States on CD and they have been more or less forgotten and ignored by the band. Of course it wasn't the same after Jim died, but the trio soldiered on and made two very good albums.

    I stumbled on my The The archives a couple of days ago, I forgot how good Matt Johnson was. Saw them open for Depche Mode many many moons ago, The The was far better.

    I've always loved Elysian Fields, but it seems like not many people know about them, or heard a song or two back in the early 2000s, or know "oh she's the lady from the Lovage album with Mike Patton." But they're still making great music and it's a crime they're not more widely appreciated:

    I recently rediscovered this band I used to love hearing on the radio when I was a kid. There may be a touch of nostalgia involved, but I could listen to this album non-stop:

    I think that Porno For Pyro's Good God's Urge is highly under rated.

    It came out in 96 when the NIN influence had a lot of acts toying with electronics. Good God's urge utilizes these influences and comes off very original unlike a lot of other copy cats.

    It's hard not to compare them back to Jane's Addiction but I find that this record stands up to the greatness of Nothings Shocking and Ritual. It's funky, it's melancholy, it's quiet, it's gritty, it's pretty, it's psychadelic and experimental.

    Top Tracks: Freeway, Dogs Rule The Night, 100 Ways, Thick of it all, Tahitian moon

    Holy crap, @aggroculture , Grotus was the first band I thought of posting here immediately after I read the thread's title.

    Okay, so here's a forgottan and underrated band: Blind Idiot God. I discovered them via Bill Laswell / Buckethead's Praxis project. Simply magnificent.

    The first two or three LA Guns albums rocked.

    I thought this band's debut album was really interesting... maybe occasionally melodramatic, and over inflected singing, but it was still really really well put together, and the production was pretty stellar.
