NAME a musician / band that's vanished, fallen off the face of the Earth, that YOU like and MISS.

Deceased performers are disqualified. You don't miss them in THIS post because they died. You miss them because they are still alive and not performing or recording.

OK...GO!

I put him in a category similar to Pat Metheny, which is basically "uncategorized"...he just IS.

It's not Jazz, it's not "new age," it's not "ambient"...it's Steve Tibbets following the muse. That's it.

33. Yeah, that's the sad thing.

Every once in a while a solo performer or band will put out something that is just transcendent, and it only lasts for one album. I guess that might be better than a run of boring, predictable albums, but it makes me ask "What happened?"

Then you have performers like Neil Young, who will hit a career peak, have a "transitional" period, then another peak...but the transition is its own form of genius. Perhaps more subtle, more elusive, not as instantly recognizable, but genius nonetheless.

55. Tears For Fears is a perfect example of this.

"Songs From The Big Chair" is an absolutely incredible album that has some truly amazing tracks like "Shout" and "Everybody Wants To Rule The World", but they really haven't put out anything new since and continue to tour off the success of that album alone.

video:
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x20xjp_tears-for-fears-sowing-the-seeds-of_music

according to Wikipedia,
"Sowing the Seeds of Love" is a song by the British group Tears for Fears. It was released as the first single from their 1989 album The Seeds of Love, and was a worldwide hit, reaching the top five in the UK, Canada (where it was #1), Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, and the US where it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, while topping the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The single also reached the Top 20 in numerous other countries.

131. No, that is not factually correct.

 

Seeds of Love came out in the early 1990's. It was very successful. Then Orzabal and Smith parted ways during most of the 1990's. Orzabal retained the name Tears for Fears and released several albums. Elemental was an awesome album and was a top 20 International hit. Raoul and the Kings of Spain and a great B-sides collection were also released.

The Smith and Orzabal reunited in 2000 for Everybody Loves a Happy Ending. I saw them tour with Spandau Ballet around 2010, and they are working on a new album to be released this year I believe.

70. Both of those bands had incredible taste in singers.

 

Such gorgeous, floating music. They took me somewhere else. Simultaneously timeless and as fresh as tomorrow. I once told a friend that "La Femme d'Argent" from Air's Moon Safari was the sonic equivalent of a 22-year-old Catherine Deneuve (think "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" era and that is the MOST romantic movie EVAH) walking down a street in Paris in a silk dress on a perfect summer's day. That's the only image that song ever gave me, and what a picture it is.

Thievery Corporation is nothing to sneeze at either, but they're still around and active.

57. Thats a great blog but left out the Charlatans.

Enjoyed several hours of memories.

Attended boarding schools (2) from 66-70 in San Francisco area and was a Fillmore West / Winterland regular.

Then was at Cal from January 74 to March 79 (intermittent route) so lots of good music.

Haven't been to a rock show since 1994 (Spirit in a bar in Eureka, CA).

Recently at the urging of a HS friend I joined Facebook but don't intend to be active.

The same friend went to a recent 50 Year Reunion of the Charlatans playing in Virginia City, NV. Wow.

Charlatans and later Dan Hicks and Hot Licks were fun.

Another band I really liked was Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra which was a Paul Kantner / Jefferson Airplane / Dead / Others spin-off.

I was listening to their album "Blues For The Red Sun" the other day. Still an extremely strong album. Last I even heard of them was when they were mentioned on the Foo Fighters documentary series Sonic Highways.

I thought those guys weren't speaking.

The reason why i picked these two bands, is that they were the 80's bands who remembered that just because you have synthesizers doesn't mean the guitar isn't still super important.

56. UNSRAW//The Scanty



The band recorded a couple of albums and lead Guitarist just quit. Walked out of the studio..the band was devastated, and couldn't go on... so they broke up.



One of the best heavy metal bands of recent years to come out of Japan.


Another band, that simply became famous after they broke up was The Scanty after three albums. Their music was used in a popular anime, and suddenly they were famous again, despite the band was long broken apart. The girls graduated High school and scattered. (incidentally, Tomo chan, the drummer is a personal friend of mine, we follow each other on twitter and chat often. She is in another band now.)

I loved them back in the days of Grunge and the Alternative 90's.

Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood...Don't know if Winwood and Mason are even on speaking terms these days.

From Wikipedia: "Tentative plans for another Traffic project were cut short by Jim Capaldi's death at age 60 in January 2005, ending the songwriting partnership with Winwood that had fueled Traffic from its beginning. Winwood subsequently dedicated The Last Great Traffic Jam "to the man without whom Traffic could never be: my lifelong friend and partner, Jim Capaldi.""

I've loved him ever since the days of "Gimme Some Lovin" and "I'm a Man" with Spencer Davis Group.

Last September I saw Steve opening for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.



Gimme Some Lovin' circa 1964--Spencer Davis Group -- filmed in a department store after hours. I think Steve was sixteen.

Ross Wilson's still kicking around, btw. In the 80's he was in a band called Mondo Rock, and nowadays he tours with other old 80's acts.

He said Robyn Hitchcock (who joined them onstage for a few numbers after his own set) was spending the time trying to avoid a "gaggle of Goths" (as Peter Buck called them) who wanted to mob him.

He gave up performing for sailing, mostly, though he did benefits and I saw him perform at a Cystic Fibrosis benefit in Maryland in the late '80s. I just discovered that he continued to release recordings as late as 2000, so he didn't completely fall off the map.

His signature song was the title song for the movie, 'Baby the Rain Must Fall.' What a voice!

He's discussed it, btu he could discuss it for a week and I still wouldn't understand it.

He's like Richie Havens...they both sang songs that could have been sung by anyone. It's what they did with them that mattered. "Ain't No Sunshine"...that whole "I know, I know, I know" riff...that jumped right out of the car radio, no one had done that. "Lean On Me"...even if you don't consider its use in the movie of the same name...look at how many people remain encouraged and inspired by that song, decades later. But I guess he proved to himself whatever he felt he needed to prove, and that was all he was interested in.
