Dave’s Lounge #288: Bands Gone But Not Forgotten

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #288It's been about five years and 132 episodes since I've done a defunct bands episode, so it's about time we dusted off some of these old recordings and put them back in your ears again. This playlist contains songs from bands that are no longer active, but for a moment, they grabbed my ear, and some of them continue to do so today.

It's the reason we record music in the first place — we want to remind our lonely little planet that we were here, and this is what we created. Some creations last long after the creators have left us. Perhaps some of these creations might do the same.

This episode aired on BeatLounge Radio on June 22, although this version is a little bit different — primarily because of this, which you'll hear more of on Dave's Lounge #289…

Dave’s Lounge #288: Bands Gone But Not Forgotten — 5 Comments

  1. I know that I have heard Bitstream Dream’s “Whirlwind” on your show a while back and I really enjoyed the track. I purchased it on iTunes and saw that the band’s title is now “Beauty’s Confusion”. It’s not that I think you made an error, but do you know the story behind the change? -Josh

    • IIRC, Bitstream Dream produced that track and a few others for Beauty’s Confusion, and they agreed to release it under both names. So when Rom DiPrisco pulled all the BD tracks offline in order to concentrate on video game soundtracks, only the Beauty’s Confusion release remained.

      I still list that song as a Bitstream Dream song, though, because that’s how I listed it back in episode 2. It was on BD’s last album, “Spiralglide”. (Which somehow is still available at eMusic: http://www.emusic.com/artist/bitstream-dream/11678500/)

      • I hope my comment sufficed as a vote for the track. Thanks for the clarification.

  2. Dave,

    My favorite is Bitstream Dream, “Whirlwind”.

    I loved this song immediately, since I heard it many years ago, and I’ve been listening to it… is that kind of music that haunts me…


  3. Dave, in terms of the yearbook… Microbunny, “Ether” has basically been the song of my summer. An unwavering calm comes over me each time I hear it. It is too bad it’s not on iTunes.
