Here at Flavorpill, we do generally like it when our readers get involved via our comments section. Occasionally, for whatever reason, one of our posts strikes a particular chord with readers — and so it was with our recent retrospective on bands who only made one album (not including live albums, best-ofs, etc). We got a slew of comments proposing further additions to our list — there were so many great suggestions, in fact, that we decided to compile a follow-up post collating the best of them. The results are after the jump. Thanks, readers!
The Unicorns — Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? (2003)
Suggested by Kevin F, Austen, Sly, louis, eric, Lion Leonie
We actually thought of this record when compiling our list, but figured that pretty much everyone had forgotten The Unicorns. How wrong we were — Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? was the single most requested addition to our list, and even though you could argue The Unicorns technically made two albums (they put out a record on their own label in early 2003, which was limited to 500 copies and contains several of the songs that ended up on Who Will Cut Our Hair… ), we agree that they’re a worthy addition to this conversation. If you’re after some classic, timeless indie pop, then look no further.
