Aaargh ! Never heard of quite a lot of these people ! ................
In a sense, that's why this list exists. It's not that I've gone and picked 100 bands no one's heard of... these really are my favourite 100 bands and singers. The reality is though, that most people have not heard of most of them. Should anyone wish to explore some good music they've not heard before, I suppose I'm giving people an interesting challenge.
It was actually this interest in letting people access different kinds of quality, non-mainstream music that led me to be a DJ for a few years around the turn of the century.
