It wasn't Book of Knots, but that's a good call. They did one show after the second record in NYC and it was amazing, never played anywhere else that I know of. Third album wasn't as good as the first two but still way underrated.

I'll let you know Monday. Right now it's interesting to see what bands that rarely-to-never toured you think should've been bigger.

If it is Temple of the Dog, I almost posted a topic about them last week. I love that album. One of my all-time favorites and I hope they never reunite.

They captured a moment in time filled with emotions from the death of Andrew Wood, that could not be replicated. I once read McCready’s solo in Reah Down was one take, second or third run through.

It’s a magical album that I hold near and dear. It came out at about the same time I was dealing with the death of my best friend.

No way, Arz looks like he was probably still coloring with crayons when that album came out.

It is one of my old favorites, though. It does hold that magical mix of raw pain and sheer beauty.

You're too kind. I was 19 or 20. Freshman in college. Good time for music.

But, you said "no touring". And, I saw Temple of the Dog live, so I wouldn't have figured they were a candidate.
(I never would have guessed it, anyway.)

So it is and so it is.

The band was The Company Band. They did do a couple of shows in NYC, but otherwise they were a No Touring Band and reaped all the non-existent benefits accordingly.

Anyway, these are the two tracks that turned my opinion from "Eh, this is okay I guess" to "Hey, this is really good":

Not quite. They've done 5 shows total. The first 2 were when the full length came out and were in West Chester and Harrisburg, PA. The other 3 were when the new EP came out - Philly, Brooklyn, & Washington, D.C. Still, they should've done a full on tour. They ripped.
