The Fall. Pop music. Innit.
Like when you listen to 'Industrial Estate' or 'Rebellious Jukebox' or 'Touch Sensitive' or 'Sparta FC'. i get what you mean.
but you're hardly going to get people saying that, say, Sunno))) or People Like Us are accept as near-universally considered fine to ease into. Accessible generally means catchy, or memorable, or not-difficult. Not neccessarily lowest-common-denominator before you ask, because pop music can be challenging innit.
i think i need to go to bed.
most of the late 80's/90's stuff is pure indie/gothic pop.
A lot of hardcore punk (the early/mid 80's) is described sometimes as if it will rip your face off in ferocity. That's just not the case though.
as it were.
i'd personally add Melt Banana to that list but then again...
But some people balk at long songs and only want 3 min pop smashes!
i got the wrong end of the wrong stick there. Sorry.
i propose: that somebody proposes another band.....
would be bands that could be played on breakfast radio without causing people to spray coffee all over their cornflakes. I'd put Giant Drag or The Chalets in that bracket.Or Rammstein.
