Wanderlust were a band with a single that took the radio by storm in 1994 and promptly disappeared. Their debut album, Prize, was cheap at Circuit City when I had no money, so even then I never got to pick it up. For some reason, I thought of them this evening and went digging through the internet to find more about them.
It seems as though, to celebrate getting the band back together in 2012, they re-recorded a version of their almost hit song. Here’s first the original and then the re-recording:
Tube Top were a band from Seattle that never made it. I saw them open for a Christmas show put on by the band Super Deluxe. Two of their songs, Erika Smiles and Weight of the World, captured my attention during their set. Trouble was, it was almost impossible to find their album. I ended up getting it as a “buy it now” on ebay a few years later.
