Bands who should have been huge but never quite got there.

Was thinking about this in yet another idle moment and UFO came to mind immediately.

What a band and everything was in place to dominate the world of hard rock. Drink and drugs f*cked them up sadly.

I last saw them at the Dorking Halls of all places and they were fantastic!

They should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Two spring to mind:

XTC: Had to stop touring in the early 80’s as Andy Partridge started to get stage fright. Continued making great albums right up into the new millennium, but could’ve been a lot bigger than their talent and output deserved.

Jellyfish: Early 90’s indie band from the States. Just two albums but both superb. Unfortunately their sound was not considered ‘in’ at the time so kind of flew under the radar. Split up after the band’s two main protagonists fell out.

Paw - overshadowed by other grunge big name bands at the time, but their music still great now.

My shout would be for Do Me Bad Things. Their album still sounds fresh 15+ years on.

Can’t agree more with Frightened Rabbit - great band and a horrible ending.

Going back a decade or so I think Ruben are one of the best British bands, and probably best known bands, never to have gotten the kind of backing and recognition they deserved.

I think Haircut100 would have been huge had they keep the successful lineup. Nick Haywood who was the vocalist and main songwriter was fired by the band for missing sessions. I understand that, but a change of vocalist and losing the best/main songwriter doesn't usually end well and it didnt.
