    I must say. Failure is one of the most underappreciated bands ever. Their music is badass. Like a euphoric mix of space rock and grunge.

    Ultimate in early 90's psychadelic rock

    Yes, Verve (before they became The Verve) were excellent - The Verve EP and A Storm In Heaven. Psychedelic gold. Shame they morphed into another Oasis clone and are now mainly remembered as the band who did 'Bittersweet Symphony'.

    I remember being given a cassette copy of A Storm In Heaven in college, '93 and being blown away. The same guy introduced me to The Smiths, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Jesus & Mary Chain and many others. Formative years.

    They honestly need to make a remastered version of "A Storm In Heaven" besides just remastering Blue and Slide Away. I actually think Urban Hymns was an excellent album. It might be a little britpop but it still incorprates a little bit of space rock as well. Never really got into A Northern Soul though.

    I challenge people with ultra-bright iems or cans to listen to the beginning of Reckoner by Radiohead! :veryevil:

    I challenge people with ultra-bass heavy iems or cans to listen to the middle of James Blale - Limit to your love. [​IMG]
    On another note:
    The Dandy Warhols are not longer "that Vodafone song" band.

    You know whenever i hear the term "Indie Rock" i always get the feeling of "Mumford & Sons" or "Imagine Dragons". Not a good feeling imo. I shouldnt be getting it though since imo true indie rock consists of the Stone Roses and The Smiths. Now those are excellent bands, not slop i hear on the local pop radio all the damn time. I mean cmon we need a "Shoegaze" radio or "Grunge" radio. But that would be too esoteric.
  13. WraithApe
    You're about 25 years too late with that [​IMG] Grunge was always on the radio back in the early 90s. Do people still listen to the radio anyway? I never do personally - closest I get these days is downloading or streaming podcasts.
