The Unblinking Ear Podcast: The List (So Far)

(I promise this will be marginally more fun than filling out your census form.)

Hello, fans of my podcast, tolerators of my podcast, and tolerators of my person.

Because I have far too much time on my hands, I've assembled a list of every artist I've played on the Unblinking Ear Podcast.

Why? Well, it's sort of been my unofficial policy to never play the same artist twice. This is, of course, unless the artist has a new release, which I'm always happy to feature. I just don't like redundancy. Rather than play the same favorites over and over again, I'd much rather find and air things less appreciated, even if I'm just digging through the corners of my own record collection.

I've been doing the podcast for nearly two years and with list I will no longer have to check the tags of each post to see whom I've already played. The list features 308 different artists.

Now here's the part where you come in.

Who HAVEN'T I played?

Is there any band conspicuous by their absence? Is there someone of whom you know I'm a big fan, but isn't featured? Is there a band that you think it just so damn good you just can't believe I have played them?

Please let me know. All your responses will be considered (and possibly mocked). All kidding aside, I'm looking for your help to stimulate some dead links in my brain and make me go "Oh, man! I forgot all about them."

So get to it, folks. At the very least, I hope this will make for some lively discussion.

Oh, and if you mention your own band, I'm going to smack you in the mouth.

I recall hearing Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Chris Knox on the podcast before. But it's possible I may have just been listening to them right after a podcast ended.

PB said...

Well I've played some Tall Dwarfs but I don't think I've played any solo Chris Knox. Not yet at least.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy... I'm pretty certain I haven't.

joe said...

no muslims/soft pack?

PB said...

What I've heard of the Muslims/Soft Pack didn't impress me too much. Perhaps I should give them another listen.

Tim Duffy said...

I notice you haven't played any Drake or Lightning Bolt. Assuming this is a follish over site on your part.

David Glickman said...

There's this great lo-fi band called Cloud Nothings you might like and I see you've never played any Black Flag or Television either.

Jamie said...

The Sonics?

Jamie said...

This is a really great podcast. I tried to think of a few more that I like that might fit. Here's what I came up with;

michael yonkers
13th floor elevators
monks
tronics
gories
metropak
the reflections
mctells
the seeds
link wray
the buzzcocks
pink floyd
los saicos
fire engines
subway sect
bobby fuller
white fence
nights and days
woven bones
the equals
scrotum poles

Also you might like this band I'm friends with http://www.myspace.com/ursalocomodus

Thank you for the suggestions, Jamie. I actually can't believe that I haven't played the Sonics as they're a favorite of mine.

If you'd like to hear some McTells and Subway Sect, I suggest you take a look here:
