There are 5 bands named The Web:

1) The Web was and remains one of the deepest secrets of British prog rock, and nowadays it is a vital item for collectors and researchers. The band started as a jazz/blues act, with a style simultaneously related to America’s West Coast groove and UK’s early prog (or proto-prog). The powerful presence of African-American singer John L. WATSON and two guitarists provided a tight muscle to the band’s sound, reflected in the first two studio efforts “Fully Interlocking” (1968) and “Theraposa Blondi” (1970).

2) The Web is a Sydney-based collective of electronic musicians, dancers and artists, including both Indigenous and non-indigenous music and dance. Inspired by natural tribal rhythms and organic samples, sounds of The Web feature everything from Breakbeat, Trance, R&B, Hip-hop,and feature traditional aboriginal vocalists from remote communities around Australia. Blended with the natural sounds of frogs, insects, native birds, and other organic sounds - the voices of the living planet. With 2 CD releases and over 40,000 albums sold independently, and numerous gigs around the country (Australia). Taken from http://www.thewebonline.net/

3) The Web were a band from Louisville, Kentucky that were active in the mid-to-late 1990s. They released two singles, a 12" EP, and a full-length CD (the latter entitled "Fruit Bat Republic"). Members included Tony Hoyle (vocals, ex-Oblong Box), Jason Hayden (bass, ex-Crain, ex-Sunspring, ex-Undermine, ex-The Quiz), Andy Willis (guitar), Steve Good (multiple instruments, currently of Sapat), Gary Pahler (drums) and Russ Pollard (guitar, trombone, ex-Sebadoh). Despite regional tours with Sebadoh and decent distribution, they are not very well known outside of Louisville - though they should be.

4) LA based Death Rock fronted by Andi Hayes (Kill City) alongside Kevin Ball, T.A. Black, Johann Schumann and Thomas Pierek. In 1983 they released 'Walk on Glass' 7", followed by 'Move On Over' 7". A collection of demos is also in circulation.
