Never before in the history of humanity has there been this much music. And never before have this many people been making music. However, the competition for the public’s ears means that there is much churn and many casualties. Being good isn’t enough to guarantee any kind of success or longevity.
The NME has put together this list of 46 quality indie bands which briefly held our attention in the 00’s but then slipped beneath the waves. For example, I remember being interested in these bands for a nanosecond or two:
- Be Your Own Pet
- Does It Offend You, Yeah?
- Dogs Die in Hot Cars
- VHS or Beta
- Tapes ‘N’ Tapes
- Boy Kill Boy
Anyone else you’d care to remember, if just for an instant?
