Vapour Trail still excites the neckhairs. Loveless sounds like it could have been recorded yesterday.

Ha! I'm listening to Slowdive's "catch the breeze" collection right now! too funny...

I clicked on not indiepop because I was thinking about patti smith and then I saw this topic on top and it seemed to call to me!

still, sometimes slowdive's "dagger" is my fave of theirs and it's their least shoegaze-y one.

I really like the 3rd mojave 3 album, excuses for travellers - the first 2/3rds is especially good, but not showgazey either.

I guess it's early in the a.m. for me. you bring me flowers but it's thorns I give to you....
being nice IS a political act!

Has anyone heard the band Should?

http://www.myspace.com/shouldmusic
The song Sarah Missing is so so so good!

I am so glad I thought to look them up today. Supposedly they started out here in Austin. Speaking of Austin and shoegaze the band She, Sir (http://www.myspace.com/shesir)are pretty great. Also Lymbyc System (http://www.myspace.com/thelymbycsystym).

I checked out their myspace and Should sound really great! And you're right, Shara Missing is amazing.

I really, really love this song. It kind of makes me go a bit emotional. Which is stupid. But anyway...

God, yeah they're from NYC...they're good, but some guy in the band was a guest DJ at Mondo in NYC when i used to live there (super fun dance night btw, although sometimes they depart a bit form the indie pop sadly). He played Fleetwood Mac and some other nonsense and cleared the dance floor.

I went to a Smiths night with some friends yesterday (possibly the best I've been to in years) and happy in the haze of the very drunken night we ended up talking about early '90s shoegazing pop, Ride, Lush, Boo Radleys, Catherine Wheel etc. That made me listen to Boo Radleys' Everything's alright forever and Split by Lush this afternoon. How utterly fantastic these albums are!!
Split has songs that really can knock you to your knees and break your heart at the same time. Miki's voice is so adorable.Did anyone else have a crush on her, or was it only me? beautiful poppy red hair...
Boo Radleys were amazing too, weren't they? Lazy Day is the kind of song that makes you wanna dance and jump around and play shoegaze air guitar all day!! Few can make such uplifting songs any more. It always makes me so nostalgic for the early '90s, being clumsy but happy and carefree with big hair... anyone else love them?
I slice the surface here beside you/Lungs filled liquid yell I love you/Sound moves further underwater
Deep and dark my submarine bells groan in greens and grey/Mine would chime a thousand times/To make you feel okay..

Everything's Alright Forever is my favourite Boo Radley's album, Christos! It reminds me of having big hair and having fun, too. The whole record is just wonderful.

I became a bit of a Boo Radleys groupie on their Giant Steps tour, embarrassingly...

i loved (and still love) lush. i can't say i really had a crush on miki (i bat for the other team), but i think i wanted to be a male version of her. i even had chin-length poppy red hair around '93. ah... the days when i had more hair. bah.
= p

'split' is amazing. my favorite, i think. oh, that, 'scar', 'mad love' and 'sweetness and light'.

i still remember exactly where i was the day i found out that chris had died.

i still really miss lush.

Why embarrassingly? You mean proudly, don't you? :-) Indeed Everything's Alright Forever is a brilliant album, Sam! Lazy Day was in every mix tape I was given between '92-'94.

Hey,

I didn't want to start a new thread about The Arrogants, simply to post spam, so I hope no one minds me writing a few lines here. Seemed like a sensible place for it.

From today (about 15 minutes ago, to be precise), The Arrogants - 'You've Always Known When Best To Say Goodbye' CD/DVD is back in stock in the Letterbox online shop (http://www.letterboxrecords.com/shop.htm). We've also slashed the price to just £4.99! A fantastic deal for a CD consisting of a staggering 23 songs and backed by a DVD including documentaries and the acclaimed previous E.P.s (now out of print) in their entirety in mp3 format.

Back in stock due to returns from our distribution 'company'. I think we only have about 12, so hurry to avoid disappointment and all that jazz.

Thanks!

Gav

Can I spread some love in this thread?
Thanks!

Aerial Love Feed
They released an EP in 2003 and as far as I know that is all they ever released under that name, they changed their name later to rockethouse, and turned into a "not so good" band.
I found a demo on slsk but it seems the songs on it leans towards the rockethouse sound instead. Shame for us.

Five miles into the atmosphere will surely make you cry, similar to the tears one could get from machine gun.

I spread love like butter, with quite some reservation so to speak.

Cap ou pas cap?

This little beautiful song "Keep me like a daydream" can be considered as a good shoegaze song ?

I just listened to the first four Lush twelve inch singles in chronological order whilst I was mixing some stuffing. I don't think there's a much better way to mix stuffing, really.

I was at a concert last week where this avant garde classical muso tried to recreate the sound of a four-track shoegazine EP, only without all the elements that makes something shoegaze. Nul points.

And the last two minutes of this is perfect.



This was perhaps the best gig I've ever been to, thinking about it.

Right, that's my Ride nostalgia fest done with for another nine months.
