I'll go for Rialto's "Untouchable" although "Monday Morning 5:19" was a great song too.
Hopefully that's obvious.
as I recall it was pretty decent, if very clearly Pulp-influenced.
if I'm happy with Rialoty being lumped into this category. Kinky Machine were signed and did an album before Oasis existed and then one after, then split up and basically became Rialto with only or two line-up changes. So to an extent they existed beforehand and were a signed band. Just quite a bit different. It's just that the first Rialto album was released 'post-Oasis'.
But maybe you're right. Who knows.
I'm just going on my perceptions as a 15/16 year old.
Although I might argue that the amount of publicity/airplay Rialto received wouldn't have happened without britpop.
- A Trip to Space & Sweeping the Nation
or particularly "post-Oasis". But you're right.
to mention this regardlessly underated band.
Yr right everything has been released on Hitback. But they received a modicum of publicity in summer 98
I would have mentioned Silver Sun, who probably fit the criteria better, but as I haven't listened to them for years, not sure if they have stood the test of time
one of the best choruses ever!
- Along with all the shite, Cast, Heavy Stereo, Kula Shaker, Reef, Hurricane #1, Northern Uproar etc
There were some pearls amongst the swine
was a huge Gene fan. I would select 'Olympian' or 'We Could Be Kings' but 'Fighting Fit' is what got me into them.
I'll also put forward Mansun in this debate. 'Stripper Vicar', 'Wide Open Space', 'Take It Easy Chicken', 'She Makes My Nose Bleed.'
I also really liked Rialto as well. Gave their album a few more listens last year, randomly enough.
Gene - Haunted By You
Menswear - Sleeping In
Speedy - Boy Wonder
It's hard to work out who was signed when though, as many of the bands existed in some form before Oasis.
