    All the hype around Love has me scratching my head as well. Maybe one day.

    Just a handful, but they've proved remarkable discoveries. First, Heron Oblivion, already mentioned here, and second, three bands whose somewhat limited discographies have been difficult to collect - at least at reasonable prices - though I now have most and they are prized: the Vaselines, the Wipers, and the Raincoats. I'm sure a few know immediately where these came from! I think sampling entries on Cobain's 50-list (mostly on utube) was about the most concentrated fun I've yet had on this site; thanks again, BeatlesBop!

    Top 50 by Nirvana (Kurt Cobain's Top 50 Albums circa 1993)

    Most of my new discoveries come from plunging down Amazon rabbitholes on the 'people who liked/bought this item also...' function. Additionally, though Marcus and Christgau can drive me batty, their works have emerged as my most valuable signposts to new stuff of late; especially Christgau's album guides by decade. As a side note - tonight, when I feel more lost and alienated in my own country than I ever imagined possible, SHF and these familiar discussions are providing a therapeutic source of comfort and diversion./KAT

    Checked it out due to your mention. I really like it. Comments section on YouTube for his music is pretty funny, too.

    I can't claim I "discovered" them through the SHF because I already knew who they were, but threads here sparked my interest in Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

    Odd that those are the 2 who come to mind given the board's orientation toward classic rock, but it's true. I saw threads that referred to specific songs, checked out those songs, liked 'em and went from there.

    Probably others I got into after hearing about 'em here, but those 2 come to mind first...

    You can get The Wipers' albums from Zeno Records, Greg Sage's record label, for a reasonable cost. CDs are cheaper than vinyl though, so I guess it would depend on what format you want.

    I'm new so I haven't had much discovery time. I did hear a track by a band called Into Paradise, but haven't listened to anything else from them yet.

    This is a band I was not familiar with but tried it out based on comments here. I can't say that I loved it, and I tried some other recommendations that didn't really click with me. However, I don't regret having bought some unknown (to me) artists, they surely need the dough, and it might be something I'll grow into later.:)

    About fifty years late to the party on these guys. Oh well, one thing good about ignorance, it can be cured. I'm much better now.

    I discovered the real Beatles. I’d only ever known about the afterthought stereo mixes. It was only when I joined the forum that I found out that the mono mixes are the true sound of the band and that the stereo mixes are not their true sound.
