As the title says, in this thread we will talk a bit about the most startling "new directions" taken by bands over the years. This is dance music trio Sub Sub, and their biggest hit, Aint No Love (Ain't no Use) They were likely to remain One Hot Wonders for the rest of the 90s. Then in 1996, their studio burned down. Faced with a decision to either give up, or carry on, the three of them opted to continue making music, changing their name to Doves, re-emerging in 1998 with the "Cedar" EP: Still bends my mind to think both tracks I just posted were made by the same people within 5 years (the former came out in 1993). I particularly recommend their first album as Doves, "Lost Souls" Feel free to post similar reinventions/rebirths etc here.
