One Hit Wonders

I've been thinking about asking this for a while now. Since I've been getting into the whole Quebec prog scene, I've found quite a few bands who only had 1 or 2 albums. Most of them are pretty obscure, so it got me to thinking: how many other great bands are out there who only had 1 or 2 albums?

Ground rules:

1) One or two studio albums. Live albums are extra, IMHO.
2) Band needs to be done. Naming a band that just put out their first album defeats the spirit of the thread.

have fun and thanks!

Re: One Hit Wonders

As far as I know, the Turkish band Siddhartha (on the Moon) just made on album (which is out of print) and never appeared again

Re: One Hit Wonders

Well, not necessarily all prog, but some great one hit wonders in my eyes are:

Dryve - Thrifty Mr. Kickstar
Chasing Furies - With Abandon
Bellador - The Day's Intent
Chris Squire - Fish Out of Water

Re: One Hit Wonders

anyone who hangs out in the shoutbox knows that one of my favorite unknown bands is Il Berlione. they made 2 albums and vanished. can't say enough good things about them.

Sloche only had 2 albums
Opus 5 had one
Pollen had one
Anglagard only had 2 studio albums
Bacamarte just had the 1 album, I'm pretty sure
Dun just had one album


I thought I had more when I was thinking about this before. I'll have to post later if I remember who they were.

Re: One Hit Wonders

Sorry, Kazuhiro, I do not think that Maneige, Harmonium, Miriodor or Visible Wind count as "bands who only had 1 or 2 albums".

Maybe you understood that lamour was looking for Canadian bands?
