Why Wanderlust was allowed to get away, I'll never understan

"A friend in South Africa loved Wanderlust and told me how big they were over there. I was embarassed to admit that even though I loved their music, they couldn't get past the once-in-a-blue-moon radio play that chain radio execs so graciously allow as a diversion from their ever-boring playlist.
Because of the lack of exposure, no one has really ever heard of them ... except the folks who were willing to get away from corporate radio just long enough to listen to a great band putting out original music.
And even more embarassing is the fact that Wanderlust is from Philadelphia where they were big in local night clubs, but that's as far as they went.
Time can be so cruel because had Wanderlust come out today, they would surely be given at least *some* radio airplay, just enough to have people catch on to them. It really stinks that Wanderlust was allowed to fade away yet we are oversaturated with these glorified garage bands putting out CDs with material that's composed by studio musicians, covers of old songs (Oasis making their living from the legacy of The Beatles, to give one pathetic example), or material that's been done to death. The end product is that everyone sounds the same today.
"Prize" is a great CD for just kicking back to. I love "Wanna Feel New," the mellow tunes of "Deepest Blue" and "Sundial," and the melody to "Far Behind" sums up the sound of the 90's beautifully.
Wanderlust being allowed to slip away unnoticed should be rated as one of the mortal sins of the record industry."
These Guys Should Have Been Huge!

"One of the fresh sounds that the 1990's produced. The material was radio friendly and they seemed to disappear in the abyss of relative unknowns. Give this one a listen!"
