Music stuff and curiosity.

Was thinking about some bands I have things by who seem to have sunk into impressive amounts of obscurity, leading me to create the following poll, because I'm curious -

Do you remember/are you aware of any of these bands?

Music geeky types will certainly know at least three of them, and they're not all as obscure as each other, but I'm doing a bit of killing several birds with one stone here.

Also, I'm currently listening to the last Ladytron album properly for the first time, and I know it's become a journalism cliché to describe things as "painfully cool", but there are songs on here I couldn't describe any other way. Just curious, since obviously because of my style over content obsession I've got enough things like that to fill a double compilation, but - have any of you ever heard something you'd attach that description to?

Edit : Gosh. No surprises over Red Lipstique (although I know they've apparently been played at B-Movie) but I'm delighted to discover that people have heard of The Bigger The God. I don't suppose that means anyone's got a copy of 'Pentonville', does it?

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
