    I was just introduced to him not too long ago, which is surprising. Talk about soulful. He's so full of talent, and Ground on Down is probably one of his best song, in my opinion.
    Both of you... def on point... the only song I was familiar with was Burn One Down when I was smoking a lot of pot during highschool (not really my scene anymore) but I didn't pick up Fight For Your Mind until recently and I can't listen to the album without first listening to Ground On Down... its such an emotional song and he isn't afraid to do some unorthodox things with his voice.

    He's also got the sickest Maori tatoos

    This is way harder for me than the overrated thread, because I'm wondering how obscure I can get, and to what degree is it reasonable for me to expect others to know these musicians?

    Well let met say one that isn't really obscure, but is under appreciated.
    Little Richard. You know, James Brown, Elvis Presley, all of the Beatles, etc.. One super-praised musician after another, has cited Little Richard as a major influence on their work and as an inspiration to play music. But you know, I never really hear people sitting around talking about how great he is, or famous organizations like Rolling Stone giving him much accolades.

    I had a buddy that really liked Phish! I wanted to look into them but totally forgot! Thanks!

    No problem! Phish is so refreshing. It's completely bohemian when it comes to generic music. It's what music should really be- freaky, crazy, chill, unique, creative, blissful, inspiring, etc etc.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Indeed! One of the very first. Came out of a country/western background like many of them (Elvis, Gene, Roy Orbison, etc). Toured with a lot of great performers including Little Richard (Magic!). Died tragically in a car accident at age 21, so his promising career was cut way short.

    I love his dirty gravelly up-all-night-smoking-and-drinking voice.

    Autolux and Talk Talk are very good bands that are also very underrated.

    One of the greatest bands of the '80s and early-'90s, but most people outside of the British Isles don't know them.

    I'd also like to include Echo and the Bunnymen.

    You can't beat it, in my opinion.

    I know the Stone Roses, but I think they're so so.
