But then Decca signed the Tremeloes.  Ya know, that band with guitars

Not that version, anyway.  Too many covers.

Look at those babies. I bet that was a fun club to see shows in back in the day.

I never saw any superstars at tiny venues before they hit, but I saw a few bigger bands play when they were still having to take turns driving and help out with setting up at some midsized places. Like bands with a top 20 on the college radio charts and a minor Miller Genuine Draft sponsorship, a couple of roadies, and someone getting paid to run stickering and street team stuff before social media existed.

I've seen some great bands at tiny venues that should have hit it big but didn't for external or personal reasons.

I like hip hop now more than most rock acts. I'm a bit too old to chase the smattering of those shows for emerging younger artists here in Seattle. Houston had a few dedicated hip hop venues, and when I'm visiting next I hope to hit up one. KC did not despite the amount of local talent.

Thanks submitter. It's weird to see them that young.

If the Kinks can make it, then these lads can.   The Beatles were not banned from performing in the US for several years, so they have a leg up.

Me, to John in 1961: "Ditch the bassist."

They both suck.  You might as well say you enjoy Trip-Hop more than Rockabilly.  Jazz-fusion is the future!

Pretty popular for a band with no original members left.

I thought that was really cute until they mentioned The Band, and I lost it. Thanks!

"The Band plays later" is what did it for me.

bingethinker: Yeah, guitar bands are on their way out.


In the early 70s they said by two more years no new songs could be written because all the combinations would be used up.

I only listen to Brazilian-Portuguese covers of David Bowie songs.

I'll admit it's a bit of a niche.

And they weren't wrong.
