A lot of the bands that get talked up round here don't chart much as far as I know
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
There's a definite kind of indie snobbery about loving obscure-ish groups. I'm really pleased the utterly wonderful Elbow are finally getting the kind of sales their music deserves, but at the same time I feel a bit resentful of all the Johnny-come-latelys. I've been here since 2000; where the **** were you?! Guy Garvey, who's a great, witty bear of a performer, himself acknowledged this at their gig at The Corn Exchange in Cambridge; he said "This gig sold out before we won the Mercury, so we know we're amongst friends". Wouldn't have taken me much to turn for him after that.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Don't worry Brumby, I'm not one of those Johnny come latelys.
Mind you, that's because I can't stand them

(There are more...but I just woke up and can't think...)
I think most of the decent bands fly under the radar when it comes to charting in popular music charts. Occasionally they'll pop up with a single or two, but I don't think the charts are a valuable indicator of what's good. I saw an interesting program a few years back on how the record companies manipulate the charts, but it was so long ago I can't remember enough of it to quote anything here.
