One Hit Wonders

There were many, many groups that put out a couple great singles or one great album and then seemed to disappear. This page features some of those artists. Granted not all of the groups here were "one and done," and some probably deserve their own page (Fever Tree and Cat Mother are on the break-out list), but these are their best achievements.

Note: This is one of the original web site pages and was heavily influenced by Richie Unterberger . Just so you know! Note: Sorted by album release date
