marion - sleep
ultrasound - floodlit world
Rhythm of the Night
but tis' still a classic
Elcka - nothing to lose
Bawl - beyond safe ways
Salad - motorbike to heaven
plus I was quite keen on Liz Phair's 'Supernova'.
Better than the original, fo' sure.
any of the singles from the phuq or earth vs albums. brilliant pop magic.
Still going. Still as good. Unfortunately, if you're over 40 and not U2 (or from next year, Oasis), you can't be as good or as interesting for that reason, in the 'popular' press.
I'm not telling anyone to like them or not, but if anyone liked them then, there's no reason not to like them now.
'who would live in a house like this' or something
not great, not forgotten unfortunately
Eric Matthews- fanfare
eric matthews was amazing
shutters closed by tripmaster monkey = fucking awesome tune
milky by cell was another one.
milky by cell
i got that
gonna hunt down that 7" right now and play it
hum?do you remember them.just fouund 3 singles by them
but never owned anything.
was goin through box after box of 90s 7"s last week, researching our dj thing. found so many gems! just played 'last man alive' by the grifters for the first time in years. linus next. <3
it was called "fall"
just found 9 7" by guided by voices
and the first big weekend by arab strap
i should look at my 7" more often
i just found that grifters 7"
i love nights in playing old vinyl sometimes. ahh. just found a run of sugary north american indie pop - jale, velocity girl, helium. great stuff.
was the linus 7" super golgatha crucifiction scene?
babe the blue ox
helium where ace
im drunk and im going to bore my girlfriend ridgid listening to them
for the rest of the night
ooooh oooh i just found the first three shellac singles
were ace !
tripmaster monkey did indeed rock. did you ever see em play? they were fuckin ace. im gonna have to go dig out their stuff now.
Another band completely fucked by Warners. Shutters Closed was great!
Lets not also forget this monumental classic:
I was gonna say that, cos I enjoyed it at the time, but then I realized that's more to do with the fact I was a teenager when it came out...it's pretty annoying.

Geek Love - Bang Bang Machine
12" at a record fair today but it didnt have geek love on it :(
despite working my arse off promoting it,only about 17 people turned up.chester-blah!!!!!!!
apart from Geek Love? Haha, only joking I know they did. In fact I remember Gary Crowley playing another one of their singles on his GLR radio show circa 92. Love You Lily or something. I liked it.
... 'lost myself'
rialto - 'monday morning 5.19'
sleeper - 'nice guy eddie' and 'sale of the century'
fixed stars - 'every night'
and i know it isn't indie, but it's mostly forgotten and great:
shanice - 'i love your smile'
Vegas, Statuesque and (of course) Inbetweener.
'Shopping for kicks, got the weekend to get through. She's keeping the rain off her Saturday hairdo.'
Ah, reminds of The Evening Session with Lamacq and Whiley.
This is my thousandth post!
vegas is such a great song.
Sleeper captured the feeling of faded dreams and life going to waste very well, didn't they?
Vegas - 'He lives on his own, TV's on loan, he watches old movies' - is that how it goes?
I just wish i'd organised my cds a bit better and could find these things when i want to listen to them!
inbetweener and vegas were amazing. i remember the rest of Smart being a bit disappointing... but they put that right on the next album!
-lost myself.....i was going to put that. LOVE that song
had great singles !
Never heard of it.
a.c. acoustics - hand passes plenty/stunt girl
bmx bandits - serious drugs
teen anthems - welsh bands suck
new fads - it's not what you know
cornershop - readers wives
silver - silver saturday
flamingoes - teenage emergency
most of which were played at our inaugaral shambolic dj night last wednesday...
DUN DUN DUN DUN
That Flamingoes song is FUCKING great! "Don't change your styyyyyle luuuuv...it's just so wiiiild, luuuuv..." Quality!
Thurman - English Tea.
for even remembering flamingoes!
i nearly played she's a man by thurman t'other night but we ran out of time.
honourable mentions to 'no time' and 'detroit' by whiteout too.
Somebody else remembers Whiteout!
they really suck...
Stunt Girl was/is awesome, as is I Messiah Am Jailer.
And New FADS! Big was another good one, the desert grows three miles a year y'know.
Okay, it's not really forgotten but it's great and worth remembering. It's also got very poignant lyrics which I only noticed recently.
Savage Smile EP
are one of my fav bands btw
I remember Nyack supporting Sleeper. I still have a flexi-disc somewhere that they gave me

was a great single !
Even the b-sides were brilliant.
Until recently (Wigwam) the worst thing Alex James had put his name to. And HE played bass on The Great Escape, so that's saying something...
I bow to your fanatical knowledge of Alex James' exceptional rubishness... Congrats!

I DARE YOU NOT TO SMILE.
Obviously didn't try hard enough...
Not the proper video.
the proper video was ace! They threw cake at each other!
That's enough for me.
not quite 90's but:
Dark Star - 'I am the Sun'
The Pecadilloes - 'Kirsten's Beach'
Scarfo - 'A Year from Monday'
Helen Love - 'Long live the UK music Scene'
I saw them supporting China Drum at Reading Alleycat in about 1997.
Quite an unlikely combo.
that scarfo song! is that the one that goes 'give me some sign of life....'?
tell me you have it! tell me you can supply me with it! please!
heard Scarfo. I kept meaning to, since someone told me that my old band sounded like them, but I never got around to it...
...were the only band that managed to break out of Andover ever.
other than The Troggs, but, we don't like to talk about them.
The other two tracks were bloody good also. It was a shame that was the last thing they did.
(and their others)
Quickspace Supersport - Song For NME or Happy Song Number One
Elastica - How He Wrote Elastica Man
Carter USM - Do Re Me So Far So Good
those are a bit too remembered though.

Patio Song - Gorky's Zygotic Mynci
Barney and Me - Boo Radleys
Love Your Money - Daisy Chainsaw

'rollerskates' by She
'monkey sanctuary' by bivouac
'kiss curl e.p.' by huggy bear
'all sideways' by scarce
'hey come on' by verbena
um, grungetastic innit!
First single I ever bought. I kind of expected it to go to Number One, and was quite disappointed when it was at Number 30 or something that week (which was three or four weeks after it came out). I thought that my vote counted for something...
Ride - Black Nite Crash
with the Helen Love remix?
Kerbdog - Sally
Apes, Pigs and Spacemen - Come Around The World With Me
Cecil - My Neck
Kenickie - Nightlife
Whipping boy - We don't need nobody else
one of the 10 great tracks of their album...
Whipping Boy.Heartworm is a stone cold classic
Little Pink Stars
...In the Meantime
Also I only just realised how good Echobelly were, and how pretty the lead singer was/is. I thought they were shit in 1995, and as I was 14 she probably looked like a granny to me.
by Mcalmont and Butler
That song was the soundtrack to summer '94. The rest of the album was rubbish.
The other singles taken from it 'Victrola' and 'Number One Blind' were both kickass.
Thought the album as a whole was pretty good.
Their second album was massively overproduced though.
Veruca Salt released a new album last year...
they're playing a club near home y'see??
some female-fronted college rock, I would say yes !
The only thing is that the band hinged on the dual frontwomen Louise Post and Nina Gordon.
They were best friends, both pretty useful guitarists and wrote the songs together. When they fell out and Nina Gordon left the band after the second album it was never going to be the same.
Now it's just Louise Post and a band of hired mercenaries!
Speedy - Boy Wonder
Silver Sun - Lava
Menswear - Sleeping In (honest, it's great!)

She's Looking For Me was ace as well.
Faded Glamour was by Animals That Swim.
ohmygod I remember seeing the Sophie on telly in the 90s and I nearly swooned right off my chair dammit.
She is the sort of unconventional fox that you fancy even more as you reckon that your better-looking mate probably wouldn't fancy her as she looks kinda weird, leaving you with an enhanced chance of pulling her but with no less satisfaction.
These were the days before she married the twunt from The Feeling and sang a song about changing her underwear.
Where Do I Stand = a classic shout.
I was going to write it myself, but did a quick search and saw someone had beaten me to it. Reminds me of doing my GCSE's.
Paradise motel - calling you
Pala - be a celebrity

dont forget silver sun too
Has White Town been mentioned? This thread is far too long...
I think I love St Etienne singles in general!
by dawn of the replicants.
in fact radars and candlefire were excellent too. in fact the whole first album and b-sides are good. in fact i think no other bands need ever exist.
