are "unknown", so are shitloads of other influential bands.
Lyle indicated the area of investigation by mentioning Melys - winners of John Peel's festive fifty.
Melys don't sell many albums and their last album was reviewed nearly nowhere ( but it's excellent ! )

theyve been going a long time withouht being in the limelight too much
This thread's a little ridiculous. No band's unknown, Bettie Serveet certainly isn't.

I've seen them play before 20 people ( and that was when they were on a major... )
And I'm not sure many people know them even on DiS !
