Treat Her Right - "Tied To The Tracks"
Mark Sandman's pre-Morphine Band. Kinda sounds like Morphine but with electric blues guitar. Great originals plus a cover of Captain Beefheart's "Hit a Man".

Royal Crescent Mob - "Midnight Rose's"
Released early '90's. Punk Funk sorta like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Probably not as good of musicians as RHCP but way more fun and a lot less pretentious.

Big Audio Dynamite - Megatop Phoenix

It was produced by Mick Jones and Bill Price. It was recorded and mixed by Bill Price at Konk Studios North London, assisted by George Holt and Fintan McDonald. It was compiled at Air Studios in the West End assisted by Andy Strange and mastered by Jacko at Tape One. The cover was designed by Bullitt and Big Audio Dynamite. Photos were by Dan Donovan assisted by Mark Bromfield. In 1990 Mick Jones formed Big Audio Dynamite II with totally different members. The phoenix in the title is a reference to a near-death experience of Jones, who had nearly died of pneumonia before recording the album but successfully recovered.
