    Default Obscure/One Hit Wonder Bands

    Who can think of any bands; either obscure or bands who were one (or few) Hit Wonders?

    As posted here on the Bands sub-forum there is Russian Punk band Сектор Газа aka Sektor Gaza

    Then there is Frijjid Pink with their version of House of the Rising Sun

    Can anyone come up with any more?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Dream Academy, "Life in a Northern Town"
    Fiction Factory, "Feels Like Heaven"
    Doublé, "The Captain of Her Heart"
    It Bites, "Calling All the Heroes"

    And, a band who were big on the other side of the world, but only had one hit here (should have been bigger!): Split Enz, "I Got You"

    Do one hit wonder bands or singers count if they had one number one hit, and then a non-hit that only got as far as number 57 in the charts, and then nothing? That seemed to be the case in the 1980s.

    The Chicken Song by Spitting Image? (They did have a minor hit at Christmas 1986, I know).

    I remember reading that Prince Charles actually thought at one point that they were a genuine pop group - but then one wouldn't blame him for not watching the TV series considering how they treated his family over the years.
    I am a man (just in case anyone asks).
