Are these drivers of bandwagons? Jumpin on the John Barrowman bandwagon by mistake lead me through a journey of smug irritations.
Here are some people who could drive some good bandwagon, but never have/will be at that burdened wheel.
Roky EricksonHe was the voice of The 13th Floor Elevators a true innovator in psychedelic rock, but psychedelia in the 60s also had a tight marital bond with LSD and other mind benders. Unfortunately his mental health began to suffer and he suffers from Paranoid Schizophrenia, but still made some ace solo records, which serve as a spyhole into his mind.

Far too uncool to be even considered of driving a fated bandwagon to it's temporary destination.
Their harmonies are so tight and this tune in particular moves like a steam train, they got a few tunes like that, trains are good- they take you places just like a good song.

I'd jump on his sweet bandwagon, chambered in perfect neo-psychedelic pop. His new LP "The Plum Album" is out on the Internet and from what I've heard it comes with free sunshine.

I first heard about Linda when watching Daft Punk's 'Electroma' film, the soundtrack on that film is faultless and the best use of music I've seen in a film for a while, the film is disgustingly slow towards the last half hour with ZERO dialogue, the music keeps you awake.
Linda Perhacs released her only proper album 'Parallelograms' in 1970, nobody bought it or heard much about it, but naturally it surfaced here and there and gained quite the following. It's a beauty and as a massive lover of Joni Mitchell and more out there folk I fell in love almost instantly.
