Name: Meat is Poison
Genre: Glam Rock
Bruce Willford and Mel Gleeson, along with a rotating drummer and synth player, travelled the country for thirteen years, from 1973 to 1986, performing strange covers of 60s Anti-War songs and classic Rock-and-Roll songs. They never actually had an album produced, and their names were likely made up for their band, so we may never know anything about the band except from eyewitnesses.
Name: One Black Chick
Genre Indie Folk
They’ve been around since 2010, jamming away with their acoustic guitars about life in the modern-day Southern Appalachians. The band has gone through many changes in lineup, with only Becca White remaining as the permanent lead singer, but no matter who is currently in the band, there has to be exactly one African-American female in their group, usually on drums, though occasionally as the co-lead singer, like when Hannah Kline headlined the group in October through December of 2014.
Name: Home Clipart Animal Deer
Home Clipart Animal Deer is the alias of demoscene artist Tana Rosseau, who has been making music with her Amiga computer since 1996. She is a marketing director at a large firm as her day job, so her passion is just a hobby. Even so, she still does a few live shows every year.
Name: Cunnilingus Fury
Genre: Swedish Folk Metal
Their lyrics are nigh incomprehensible over the music and they have only sold six copies of their albums on bandcamp.com since 2004 but they keep releasing an album once every three months anyway. They are known in the folk metal scene mostly for their song “Aryan Bar Mitzvah” from their album “How Hard Do I Need to Fuck!” in 2009. Despite being Swedish Folk Metal, they are all Americans.
Name: Ambiguous Casualties
Genre: Alternative Rock
These guys basically saw Green Day and really wanted to copy them. No, you’ve never heard of them, because they suck.
Name: West to Wes
Genre: Prog Jazz
Armed with a saxophone and a guitar, this duo takes jazz to a level none has ever heard before. Chuck West and Wes Carmichael are Eastman dropouts who have decided to travel the country as storytellers, recounting tales of ancient pasts and mystical futures through their insturments. They still have only released one EP, since their tour hasn’t ended after over four years.
Sounds Like Bliss
Genre: Fem Punk
It was 2002 when Stacy Livingston, Tracey Wright, and Alysha Tyler met in a chemistry class and realized they wanted to fight the system together, and did so through three guitars, three vocalists, and no drums. They played on and off around local venues until the 2008 Democratic Primaries broke them up.
Name: Blade Walkers
Genre: Symphonic Rap
This band is a rap group centered around classical progressions and progressive classiness. They frequently rap about subjects such as class warfare, alternate history, and perform renditions of e.e. cummings works. Their music videos on Youtube regularly receive tens of thousands of views from fans, tough their CDs sell almost no copies. Yet they still perform.
Genre: Nerdcore Metal
A very hardcore heavy metal group, but with a large focus on NES and Gameboy chiptune sounds to go along with their thrashing guitars and raging drumset. The group formed out of Seattle after meeting at a Super Smash Bros Brawl tournament, and have been performing locally at midnight releases of most major Xbox games since Halo Reach.
