In this thread lets post songs from obscure bands that we love.

The two bands I'll be posting have one thing in common: their music was featured in Jet Set Radio Future! Actually, I discovered many of my favourite bands through the Jet Set Radio games in some way, either by having a song in those games or by being associated with a band that had a song in those games.

Anyway, first up is Guitar Vader. They were a Japanese indie rock band and they're one of my favourite bands of all time. I love almost all of their songs but I guess I'll only post some highlights:

Docu-mentary Kiss
Perfect Bird
Soft

Next is Cibo Matto. These ladies aren't as obscure and they actually have a new album coming out this Valentine's Day. They've got some weird songs and it's kind of hard to fit them into a specific genre. Here are some of my favourites though:

Sugar Water
Spoon
King of Silence

Now you guys post something.

But the bands I posted are affiliated with video games. Well, the first band more than the second.

Are you thinking of bands like Crush 40 that are more known for their videogame soundtracks than their other songs?

So you don't listen to any non-gaming bands at all? That's kinda odd.

I listen to individual music pieces that catch my ear, I'm not really following any specific band.

You've never been like "Hey, this individual music piece is pretty good, I should check out the other works by this artist"?

Unbelievably,  no I haven't...
The last time I remember doing that was with Linkin Park many years ago.

Well then you should. You could end up discovering many more songs you like. Like I said in the OP, many of the bands that I like I first heard in JSRF. For a long time I didn't seek out any of their other works and I just listened to their one or two songs in the game. When I did eventually look for their other works I ended up discovering many more great songs that I never would have heard if I hadn't sought them out.

Well you should, and when you do post some of it in here so this topic can fulfill its purpose.

So I was looking through my iPod the other day, and remembered I was really into this band called "Rhapsody of Fire"

Yay, my music thread is actually being used. I guess I'll post something else to celebrate.

One Block Radius weren't featured in a Jet Set Radio game but two of it's members were a part of Scapegoat Wax, a group whose song Aisle 10 was featured in JSRF.

One Block Radius - Loud and Clear
