Thought of the day:

Who are your favorite bands whose albums simply aren't available at 99% of America's record stores, even the non-chain variety?

(spurred on by my finally tracking down MP3s of the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, whose only US release consists of providing the music for Incredible Crisis on the PlayStation, but who have a huge catalog of great ska/jazz albums that are currently Japan-only)

The only band/artist I can think of offhand is Deavid Soul... he did a few songs for Jet Grind Radio. That game's got a surprisingly good soundtrack... well, except for the songs they tacked on for the US release... and even there, the contributions by Mixmaster Mike and J-5 are pretty good. Other than stuff off that game, though, I don't really listen to a lot of import-only artists.

Well I had a long reply here that went all wonky for some reason. So to truncate it, a list of albums not easily found in the US that I recommend.

Edson: Unwind With Edson, For Strength
Songs of Soil: The Painted Trees of Ghostwood
First Floor Power: There Is Hope
Yvonne: Yvonne
The Bear Quartet: My War

Yeah, what a joke to have the Isley Brothers, when they could have chosen from any of the zero other acts that are still having hits who started doing so in the FIFTIES.
