My Top 10 Bands NOT on Spotify

Some of my favourite artists aren’t on Spotify – here’s who:

  • VNV Nation – Futurepop pioneers VNV Nation have released many great albums over the past ten years or so, and their live show is particularly powerful.
  • The Toy Dolls – England’s finest comedy punk band, the Toy Dolls have about a dozen albums on Captain Oi! records.
  • Kelley Polar – Released my joint-favourite album of 2008 on Environ Records. Kelley Polar is a genius multi-talented musician who (fortunately for me) likes to make electronic music.


Since writing this post, many of my missing favourites have been added:

  • VibrasphereSweden’s finest progressive and chilled trance act, with several albums on Digital Structures/Tribal Vision/Cloud 99 Musicnow on Spotify!
  • Antix Superiour progressive trance from New Zealand, via Denmark’s Iboga Records, home to Ace Ventura, Perfect Stranger, and a whole host of other excellent trance acts.Now on Spotify!
