Sunday Links: Bands You Haven't Heard for a While Edition


It’s Sunday once again folks.  It was an eventful week.  WeinerGate exploded with a lot of truth, and a ton of fallout.  Courts and the ACLU didn’t want people praying.  Gaddafi lives on, and NATO struggles to kill him.

On the front here, RapidFire was introduced, and has been well received.  Thanks to all that are supporting it.  As for the theme, I was listening to some music, and heard some stuff that I had forgotten about.  So, I thought I’d share a little of it with you.  Kindly give them a listen, and click on some of the links.

There you have it, I hope you enjoyed the tunes, as well as the links.  As always, should you find the site worthy, please consider hitting the tip jar.

This will be cross-posted at RapidFire.

  • Whew, as Crocodile Dundee might say, now that’s a list!
    As always, thanks for the link & for reminding me it’s Sunday. Us retired folks tend to forget…

    • Lol, Thanks for the kind words. From reading your blog, I doubt that you need many reminders-retired or not.

  • Wow, two links this week, thank you! Another great list Matt. I have to admit that while I heard of most of those bands I did not know their music. Alice in Chains being the exception.

    • Thanks for the comment Steve. You have head of Savatage, just not in that incarnation. Some time back, they started a side project-called Trans Siberian Orchestra.

  • Good God, man! I thought I had linky days! I enjoy these though, you pull things from places I’ve never heard of.

    • Thanks! I just pull them from the blogroll.

  • I must be sheltered, or too old. Alice In Chains is the only band I ever even heard of….Thanks Matt for the linkage.

    • As I said to Steve, Savatage started Trans Siberian Orchestra, though I don’t know that any of the original members are still involved. Most of those bands started in the late 80’s, and metal fell by the wayside before they got huge followings. Blue Murder was probably the best. The guy who sang and was on guitar was with Whitesnake for Slide it in and the self titled Whitesnake album. Coverdale fired him after recording the self titled album, so most people never heard of him.

  • Tora -Tora, I like it and I haven’t got a clue why. Thanks for the link, Matt. Where you find the time to do all that you do just amazes me and I’m long retired.

    • They did have a bluesy kinda thing going on. That, and there was that long movie about Pearl Harbor with almost the same name.

      Thanks to you Jim.

  • Thank you very much for the linkie.

    • You are very welcome!

  • “Haven’t heard in a while”?? Some of these are “haven’t heard, ever” for me. Well, I probably heard them on Headbanger’s Ball 25 years ago but, well, my memory from that era of my life is a little blurry.

    • I know what you mean. Some of them came out in the late 80’s, and never had time to get a big following.

  • Great round up this week Matt! Thank you so much for the link my friend. As always we greatly appreciate it.

    • Not a problem John. Thanks for all the work you guys do.

  • AIC still rules.

    Thanks for the kind linky goodness Matt. You rule.

    • No problem King Shamus.

  • Great set of links Matt! Thanks so much for the linkage. I have added Conservative Hideout to Catholibertarian’s blogroll – my husband’s and my together blog.
    Have a great week!

    • I added your site to the blogroll here, and at the RapidFire site. Thanks!

  • Don

    Great links and great videos Matt! As always!

    I wish Head East had made some videos. Although, according to their newsletter, they have a new lead singer and have recorded some new material, along with a couple of videos.

    • Thanks for the kind words sir. Head East is the band you had told me about a while back, isn’t it?

  • Don

    Yes, I worked for them and also the band I used to manage went on tour with them for a while. At the risk of being a name dropper, I also was fortunate enough to get to work with Foghat, James Young from STYX and Loverboy. But Head East was the one I worked with most often.

    • You NAME DROPPER!!! 😀

  • Thanks for linking Matt. Now there’s a collection of vids you won’t find anywhere else.

    • Very true. Most of the readers never heard of them!

  • That is one massive list! Thanks for the linkage.

  • Thanks for the link. By the way, anyone who posts a Savatage song on their site is awesome! One of my top three favorite bands of all time. Unfortunately, I have only gotten the chance to see them live once.
