Helium voice

Noise rockers Helium with their song "XXX", circa 1994. Mary Timony had a good voice, but the music didn't resonate with a lot of people, so after two albums Helium broke up. Just another one of the interesting things that happened in music in the 1990s, it really was a decade of musical experimentation as labels tried to jump on the Nirvana alt-rock bandwagon and signed anybody who sounded "alternative". Most of those bands, like Helium, had no prayer of selling a million albums, and so they ended up falling by the wayside. But the music still exists, if only as electronic downloads...
