are there any better than rapeman?
Not actually that brilliant, but still some strong material on that album
i kinda meant bands that made one great record then split before they could follow itup...
although it was only semi-great
one of those albums that doesn't click for the first bunch of listens and then becomes one of your favourite things ever.
there's talk of a follow-up? I've not heard it yet, will it infuriate me less than the band half of Think Tank?
I imagine I'll get some stick for this, but I love their debut album, and today announced they were splitting up. Think they may have recorded a second album, but having the all too common problem of getting it out.
I was getting worried that this album was taking so long be released when they announced that it had been finished a while back now... Hopefully, the second album will not be confined to a cupboard and the fans will get an opportunity to hear it soon.
If there was another album by DFA 1979 that I didn't know about I would be very happy bunny..
but as far as 'proper' albums go, You're A Woman I'm A Machine was the only one. Cracking record that.
All the way, amazing amazing album, I'm glad that they couldn't follow it up. All the ideas kinda on one album...
Another band that that burst of a lot of ideas and then almost self-imploding which I personally enjoyed a lot was Test Icicles
Conor Oberst so stuck w/ Bright Eyes and ditched Desaparacidos after one album so he could get more chicks, what a bitch
That is all.
Grinderman - is the second on its way?
and have one due to come out... eventually
Grinderman second album is done, thinking they are waiting for a time they can all tour before they can release it
As their new album has been ready for a while now, but they are in the process of trying to clear all the samples on it.
I THINK THAT'S THE GLARING OMISSION
I'm just aware of EPs, remixes albums and mixes.
Prove me wrong guys, prove me wrong.
city of caterpillar
rites of spring
if you count One Last Wish. But yeah, most emo bands fit into this catagory. Also I really like the Amesoeurs album and it sucks that they split up for such a stupid reason.
What's the stupid reason?
Their S/T was one of my top finds last year :(
The numerals track translates to 'Amesoeurs is dead'. Neige's girlfriend was jealous that he was in the band with Audrey or some such nonsense. Have you heard the Ruines Humanes EP? If you haven't check it out because it's really good although less poppy than the album.
i'm having that as an LP rather than an EP
seem to remember Our Band Could Be Your Life does as well.
the second album wasn't THAT far off completion. Still counts.
NEVER MIND the BOLLOCKS
has to be up there.
I see where y'all coming from
this post hadn't even been this'd once. so i'm glad to return to find lots of support for it.
I know, I'm feeling a little crazy today.
Never Mind the Bollocks. I know the Sex Pistols don't get much love here...but, you know, you're wrong about this one. Twas fantastic then, tis fantastic now.
temple of the dog
David Thomas Broughton (?)
good call on wives
a friend recommended me them recently. he also recommended me these guys at the same time: http://www.last.fm/music/Maximillian+Colby do you know them?
it's a hidden gem. I'd love for them to finally release something new.
Mind you, that was well over a year ago.
Good shout though. I'm gonna dig that puppy out right now.

I still wait patiently for the follow up, like i have done for years : (
its absolutely sublime. Really lovely. Don't think they've done much since, if anything. I think most of the members left leaving one guy to keep plowing a lonely furrow..
wasn't very good
*Waits for barrage of FUCK OFFs*
BTW what about Crystal Castles? And speaking of them has Heartsrevolution even MADE an album yet?
And Postal Service, really?
Crystal Castles 2nd album out soon and no word of a Heartsrevolution out yet
Classic one album wonders!
Such a quality album too. 555 was a great single: that classic 1998 'indie band + samples = THE FUTURE' formula. They released a single after this ('Got It Like That'? Don't really recall), but no second album.
The Rock is a great tune. And Stealy was a cool instrumental.
I bought it when it came out, and I remember on the front it had a reviews sticker. One of them was:
"Sound cool dudes" - Shaun Ryder.
and to a lesser degree Dogs Die In Hot Cars.
I'll add Klaxons, since they don't seem to have anything coming, and Bell Hollow, who broke up two months after I discovered them.
Klaxons 2nd album was ready to go, but Polydor shelved it for "being too psychedelic" (really)
Ian MacKaye, Michael Hampton, Ivor Hanson, Chris Bald and not the one with Danny McNamara who became tabloid fodder due to a rumoured relationship with 90's pop diva Gina G.
Rocco DeLuca & The Burden - I Trust You To Kill Me
The Early Years - The Early Years

Make Good Your Escape - Never Look Back Here Again
The Sea Hags - The Sea Hags
Love that album so much, the single that followed on the normally amazing Sonic Cathedral did them no justice.
And yes that does count
Waiting Room (2nd album was posthumous)
The correct answer is The La's, Lee Mavers is a genius. Just listening to The Kitchen Tapes makes me wish that they had made the second album
I know there are technically two, but Who Will Cut... is basically a rerecorded version of the other one (forget the name).
I remember listening to that on repeat.
And having a crush on Annie Hardy
have new stuff on the way!
are three correct answers
...but some I really like;
Nosferatu D2 (I may be shameless, but i totally think it should be in here)
Colour of Fire
Jeff Buckley (predictable)
love their debut, reckon they could of been so much more
Brilliant album and Play The Hits is a classic pop song. Hopefully they'll release a second album one day...
They'd even been split up for two years by the time their album had come out!
Rapeman were a huge influence and still are nowadays. The only others mentioned so far that i would agree with are Faraquet, Rites of Spring, Life Without Buildings & Maximillian Colby (dunno if they count as they never released an album only a compilation of eps). However after reading there was only 1 band i could think of that could beat any other mentions The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg. The End.
Dogs Die in Hots Cars- Please Describe Yourself
genuinely one of the best pop albums of the 2000s. every tune is great.
Clor and The Sleepy Jackson deserve honourable mentions
Jeff Buckley, Lift To Experience and The Early Years for me from this thread though
Its probably safe to include 120 Days, loved the debut album and they haven't been heard from since early 2008.
Had at least 2 albums released. Personality? I can't be arsed to google it, it's past my bedtime.
The Monsoon Bassoon???
THEM THEM THEM LOCK THREAD
THREAD IS *OVER*
IT IS DEAD
THE AVLANCHES have only had one album.
what the fuck happened to this band?
and it was all horrible and stinky so they flapped about like gnats, then quietly dug their way underground where they are still hiding
You Got Me Fraiche has more talent, invention, thrills and delights in 32 minutes than most subgenres
This is what I just did to the thread:
They had 2 albums. So you lose.
that never happened. don't believe what you hear.
Again, not neccerily the best but was quite a fun album
fighter of the Nightman
because then they'd be on my version of this list, for sure. But Postal Service and Life Without Buildings for sure.
And Clor! I'm going to listen to Clor RIGHT NOW.
Where You Want To Be has some decent tracks, but after Nolan and the other dude left they just weren't the same. :(
TAYF is probably my favourite pop-punk album ever but WYWTB is 4/10 at best, I think. You're right: Nolan WAS TBS, really.
Loved that record. Gutted they split so soon.
Also, good shout to whoever mentioned The Organ.
I saw them at Download 2007 previewing new material then heard nothing.
If not I'd put that up for debate, though much as I love it it's not a thread winner.
The Postal Service?
with Magenta. Never found out what happened to them.
LAMF (like a motherfucker)
Although The Program never got a proper release over here so I suppose you could count them, if you wanted to.
