These are bands that TIME has forgotten, and that didn’t LAST in the industry.
5. The Teardrop Explodes
Formed in 1978, released some quite good singles and two recordings before calling it a quits and disappear. Their debut album released in 1980 called ‘Kilimanjaro,’ is a mix of post-punk and psychedelia. The band was to score some couple of hits back in their homeland, U.K.
4. The Pink Fairies
Pink Fairies are a classic rock band active in the London and playing in the underground psychedelic scene of the early 70’s.

3. Heavy Metal Kids
The group formed in 1973 and recorded a self-titled debut album the following year. The band was a bunch of street-level musician playing some good music and were absolutely rock n’ roll. Unfortunately, one of their members named, Gary Holton died in 1985 of a drug overdose.
2. The Soft Boys
Formed by Robyn Hitchcock in 1970, considered as one of the all-time greatest singer-songwriters at the time. He formed the group with some of his friends, though a shortly-lived they were able to release their debut album in 1980 called ‘A Can of Bees,’ that resembles a wonderful earful some of Beatles musical sense.
1. The Motors
Nick Garvey and Andy McMaster formed the Motors in early 1977 and was joined in by drummer Ricky Slaughter and guitarist Bram Tchaikovsky. The group took the liberty to mix the pub-scene with some keen pop sensibilities and some hard rocking Dep Leppard style. Group’s debut album is called “1” and originally released in October 1977.
