    To People In My Area At Least

    maybe the artists i listen to aren't obscure in other places, but when i put them on, nobody i know has ever heard them.  i think it's because alot of them are either foreign (to the US), or they are in a unique style of music.  or they are just not that wide-spread...

    I Love Off The Beaten Path Music

    I'm definitely a "rock snob", and as such most of what I listen to is obscure. Even when it's music by popular artists it is always things no one else has seemed to ever heard. Like I like The Byrds but in their Gram Parsons era, I love The *** Ponys, Wesley Willis, Harry Nilssen...
