Great music websites from dead and forgotten bands?

I am looking for examples of great "from beyond the grave" music available online; the band split but the music lives on...

My criteria are:
1. There once was a band/musician who recorded live or in the studio.
2. The band never encountered any meaningful commercial success before splitting up.
3. They are still obscure.
4. But years later somebody dug up their recordings and put them online (youtube, website, whatever).
5. They were great and we should really listen to them (or at least to the track you specify).
I'm really thinking of artists you used to be a fan of who got nowhere but who you were able to find again by googling - but, all right, it could be your own band at a pinch.
