Popular does not always equal good, unpopular rarely equals bad. With that always in mind, I have discovered some very good bands by scouring the cut out bin looking for current but unpopular music sold at go away prices. Sometimes, at such a good price, the cover alone was enough to make it worth the risk. If it sucked so bad, it became a beer coaster. Win win.
Tonight on the Fuzz Factory I compare/contrast two bands that fall into the scenario I described. Flowerhead and Black Market Flowers. You can call it – Unknown Flower Power. I heard a Flowerhead song on the radio, once, after midnight. I never heard Black Market Flowers on the radio. No one might have. Flowerhead is from Austin, TX. I don’t even know where Black Market Flowers are from, my guess is Southern California. The good news, both bands released two albums and none of them are coasters.
Here are ALL of Flowerhead and Black Market Flowers official videos. Dig it. Listen to the Fuzz Factory on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org) tonight and every Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EST).
