Do You Remember? by Cheeseburger
In a story retold on countless publications, Hamburger was formed over a chance meeting at a vegan fast food joint between a couple of band-mates. What we like to refer to as dreamy sandwich rock, their debut album, Teenage Terrified, was a fine work of artistic craftsmanship.

8. Electric Sandwich
Electric Sandwich were formed in Germany late 1969 by four college students in Bonn. Typical of many Krautrock bands of the era, these drew on a wide range of influences: jazz, blues, psychedelia, etc., and moulded their own fusion with that typically cosmic yet powerful edge.
For further reference: Krautrock (also called kosmische Musik, German for "cosmic music) is a broad genre of experimental rock that developed in West Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s among artists who blended elements of psychedelic rock, electronic music, and avant-garde composition among other sources.

9. The Heavy Sandwich
There are remnants of this group all over the internet. Whether it's half-written biographies or an empty, abandoned MySpace page, it makes one wonder what happened to them. Who were they? Where did they go? And why did they disappear?
Of course, maybe the mystery is what makes them so alluring. So far, we were only able to determine that Heavy Sandwich consisted of 5 guys who started touring together, even before writing songs for their first album. Over time, they were able to assemble enough songs for an album, released it, and toured some more. Then suddenly, one day, they disappeared from the internet, never to be seen or heard from again.
