A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Modern Lovers

United States of America


I'll second United States....
and add The Ronettes!

Thor original Modern Lovers could be considered a no-album band as "The Modern Lovers" is just a compilation of demos.

Coverdale / Page - Early 90s gem. 

Honorable mention - I know they released a second album, but The Traveling Wilburys should have been a one album band.  The first album is magic.  The second album just kinda sounds like they're going through the motions after losing Orbison.

I thought about that for the first time in years recently, as I was thinking about Whitesnake (in reference to our hard rock thread). I really enjoyed that album at the time: I enjoyed it more than critics did at the time, that's for sure.

I also recall a funny quote about their working with Steve Albini in the recording of the album. Basically, Albini was going his typical direction, which is just to capture the real sound as-is, avoiding outboard gear and processing when he could. Apparently this didn't sit well with Plant especially, who, talking about reverb and delay or something, said something like "don't you understand that these knobs were meant to be turned to the right?"

I'm a big Whitesnake fan, as well as Coverdale's stuff with Deep Purple. 

You can argue that Purple Mk IV was a one album band.  Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes. 

One album - Come Taste the Band - a really good album.  Then the band fell apart.  Until the Mk II reunion in 1984.

I bought the allbum at the time, to my great disappointment.

Robert Plant was on the Clovedale-Page album? Wow, did  not know that.  Grin

I bought the allbum at the time, to my gresst disappointment.

Haha, whoops. That would be an anecdote from the Plant/Page album, a couple years later.

Now my veneer of brilliance, of perfection, has been lost! (At least I caught on once you pointed it out, ORR. I once, several years back, kept arguing for several posts about how it was just plain idiotic to try to omit Led Zeppelin from a list of the best American rock bands. I honestly was baffled how nobody would see my point. And people kept responding "American rock band?" and such. "Yes, they're easily in the top five!" (or whatever I said).

Then ... ooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah... What can I say, I have my moments.  Grin

Oh I know. And I was piling on the chain pulling. So I pulled my own chain. That's weird. Why do I have a chain, and why am I pulling it? What kind of Pavlovian S&M vibe do I have going on here?

That I am! Though I don't recall why I'm a demon-fighting genius anymore. (The patronizing twaddler part, I do.)
