Screaming Blue Messiahs
Many of my favourite bands are/were three-pieces.
MinutemenJimi Hendrix ExperienceDinosaur JrNoMeansNoThe CleanThe LemonheadsLiars
Cream, Muse, Blue Cheer...
Depends what you mean by 'band' I suppose - if it's rock power trio, Sleater-Kinney, but for just 'three musicians', I'd also say Portishead.
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
The Polyphonic Spree
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Rush(other than Jimi's lot of course)
Yo La Tengo
they were never a three piece were they?
I was just joking, was listening to that at the time and decided to wing it in.
no jokes on the music board please
This Heat, innit.
