I always cringe a little when Cool For Cats by Squeeze is played on the radio, their biggest hit and probably 'signature tune' as far as the casual observer is concerned, essentially a quasi-novelty record with Chris Difford reeling out the old Cockney spiel. I quite like it but it doesn't represent what the band is about by any stretch of the imagination.

Radiohead and Creep................. So much better was the stuff that followed .... It is a shame that that song and the rest of the Pablo Honey album cannot be airbrushed from history

Dodgy. Best known for the cheesy 'Good enough' but some fantastic and varied albums.

Fountains of Wayne. Mostly known for the fairly horrible 'Stacey's Mom' but their first two albums have got some great pop rock songs and are well worth a listen.

Sacked their drummer after a night out with my promo team. He caused a rumpus on the aeroplane out of Madrid, so bladdered was he.

That's surely just run-of-the-mill rock 'n' roll behaviour, to be applauded, surely?! To be fair he'd only the one in a long line as they've had about twenty-odd members over the years, think only the singer is left from the original line-up but he's been the main song-writer and the guy that makes the live show what it is.

There was some sort of makeshift weapon involved. It was the guitarist, actually.

Not a band but Jeff Beck. Phenomenal guitarist but saddled with Silver Lining.

Agree. Went to see them for the 8th time last week at the Islington o2.

In Australia, mention Depeche Mode and all many people have ever heard of is Just Can't Get Enough.

I love JCGE, and Vince Clarke is my musical god, but DM's amazing output since Speak & Spell is virtually unheard of by the vast majority here. Probably one of the reasons their "world" tours haven't bothered with Aus since 1994.

Actually it's a similar thing with The Human League. Everyone knows Don't You Want Me, and it's a fantastic pop song, but THL have done so much other brilliant stuff, especially on their first two albums Reproduction and Travelogue while it was the original four line-up / before Dare.

As I soon as I read the OP I was going to post Simple Minds. Theme for Great Cities is an unbelievable tune.

And in a similar vein, Human League were so much more innovative than Don’t You Want Me.
