Genre: Prog Rock

Dan Thoron, Russell Miller, and Rodney “Coop” Fieldings started their band in 1973 while attending Brown University, bored while taking their freshman literature classes. From then on, they decided to study for their tests by adapting the epic poems and other stories they read into twenty-minute-long rock songs, and this eventually turned into their band’s shtick. They never got a record deal, though, so only a few hundred copies of their first two albums were ever in circulation.

This band lasted exactly one year in the spotlight– 2005. Its first hit single, “Dying to Treat You”, hit number 34 on the charts, and was featured in the end credits to the modern-day “Streetcar Named Desire” remake. But nobody was ever able to find out the names of any of the band’s members, and their first album, “Touched and Tortured”, was available only through Myspace. Their Wikipedia page has gone untouched since 2010.
