10 Bands You’ve Probably Never Heard: The Letter A

Fish Of Gold

I have a very large, very diverse music collection containing over 30,000 songs by several thousand artists. Because I’m so musically obsessed, I thought I’d share with you some great bands that should be more famous.

I’m going to break this into chunks for easier digestion. This post contains bands that start with the letter A (according to my iTunes anyway).

Abiodun Oyewole

I have him in A because of his solo album. I can’t find a video from that album, but here’s one he’s featured on.

Poet, singer and co-founder of The Last Poets, arguably the grandfathers of modern hip hop. This man is a legend.

Origin: Harlem, New York
Genre: spoken word, hip hop
Years active: 1968–present

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.

That’s a mouthful. Acid Mothers are a sort of droney/doomy type of band that produce some long, magical soundscapes.

Origin: Japan
