No one here knows who they are. In fact, the only reason I know them is because I quite like the film Empire Records.

Also, how about Scott Walker? He had some hits in the 60's, but no one remembers him...

I think Walker's profile is higher now than any time since the 60's... He's becoming more and more like Cohen and Dylan with every new release (not quite that famous, but someone that's appreciated from hipsters to sweaty metal guys).

Oh, I don't know. Scott Walker is pretty well respected isn't he?

Well I'd never heard of him until very recently, and no one else I've spoken to has.

I'm surprised. What sort of ages were the people you were talking to though Jay? I know he's cited by lots of people as an inspiration and influence, but maybe a slightly older generation. Jarvis Cocker for example, is a huge fan.

All sorts. My parents, my grandparents, music teachers, older people...

"Sunshine Superman" is an excellent starting point, followed by "The Hurdy Gurdy Man", then "Mellow Yellow", and "Barabajagal"....After that you can definitely go in to any other album...but those in that sequence to me is the best!

Can't really blame the grandparents for picking "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" over "Corps De Blah" though.

I on;y heard of Scott Walker when Damon was in a documentary about him. Was he ever popular in America?

I echo this as well....I bet it's shocking to you UK posters (or other places abroad) who bet he's well revered here like I thought a few of the US bands on the overrated thread that I am shocked you haven't heard there across the pond.

Underrated.... How about....Deep Purple?

Beyond 'Smoke on the Water' and a few other key singles, I do think Deep Purple deserve a lot more recognition.

I agree..their "Mark III" line-up was BEYOND talented and should have lasted longer if it wasn't for all their differences. Blackmore is one ace guitarist and is seldom rank high w/his peers....

Another underrated band...Definitely would be Pentangle!
