Shoegazing and no one mentions The Swirlies? MBV was King, Ride/Slowdive/Swirlies the Queen....

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from christianDec 18 2002 - 05:43

yeah nevis - i love that album as well as "delaware". in fact i haven't listened to either of those in awhile, i think i'll get 'em out. thanks for reminding me!

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from NevisDec 18 2002 - 05:36

Just telling it how I feel it and getting the debate heated up a little. I don't mean to offend anyone: have good feelings for you all.
Anyone know National Coma by drop 19's???

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from christianDec 16 2002 - 14:29

the band MAHOGANY is incredible too. they have an album out on Darla Records which is transcendent.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from godawfulDec 15 2002 - 12:16

well slowdive's been mentioned and yes they're great.
but ride's first 2 albums are all there early ep's are genius too, real godlike genius.
as for new bands, theres bethany curve, though they can get a little to long winded for me sometimes, but a song of theirs occasionally will suit me just fine.
perhaps the best "post-shoegazer" act i have heard is Auburn Lull, though landing is good too, but that was mentioned already.
chapter house, that was some good stuff too, but lets see new acts
some of these its hard to classify as shoegazer because they only contain some elements but for the sake of people finding new music i won't hold back. Wheat, Vaportrail, Grimble Grumble and 7% solution.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from alistair gDec 14 2002 - 19:13

i started this thread because i wanted to start another shoegazing revival, cos it's a top period of music and im pleased to see that like a pheonix it has risen from the ashes heaped on it by nevis and christian who i hope are reading this.

as for "original idaho fan', im not sure i understand your motivation, if all your trying to do is destructive then why do it ? if i was jeff i'd be embarressed to have you as my fan, strange guy ?

its funny when you read this, it's really nice and polite and friendly until nevis interrupts in quite an uninvited why to dismiss everything and just be offensive and nasty

this seems to happen a lot on this message board and its quite disheartening, if you dont like shoegazing then set up your own thread about somthing else, why bother spoiling it for every one else?

for what its worth, i wouldnt bother comparing slowdive with mbv i think their both fantastic but mbv would be musically more like sonic youth / ar kane some kind of noise band

i dont consider red house painters shoegazing, though their uk record label did epitomise it

i also like revolver, drop 19s and verve, (not the verve)

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from micahDec 13 2002 - 22:12

i'm not a big fan of mbv either. i like them but i like catherine wheel and slowdive better.

souvlaki and ferment are excellent albums.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from alex n.Dec 13 2002 - 21:53

I don't mean to offend anyone, but for my tastes, my bloody valentine = too much noise, not enough music. I still think it's good, though.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from NevisDec 13 2002 - 02:38

Are you kidding?? Dur! My bloody valentine anyone??
Genius versus copycat collegiate crap.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from AlexDec 12 2002 - 15:24

Now back to the original topic: MonkeyMan: Slowdive was definitely at the top of the shoegazing world. I've yet to hear anything better than "Souvlaki" as far as shoegazing goes. (Unless you'd call Red House Painters shoegazing)

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from ckDec 12 2002 - 09:36

Hi Guys,

I don't understand a lot of what you're talking about, but could you post the address of that Oasis chat page?

Thanks!!!

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from somebody who likes musicDec 12 2002 - 07:47

thanks sylvan, for setting me straight. until now i just considered myself a music lover, but now i realize I am a true indie snob. oh and yes i am illerate inbred computer fuck, absolutely. and fucking proud of it.
and while i'm at it, i should mention my new band, "the soft nazis". our record is called "defenestrating ourselves for the sake of eugenics". we're really good and should appeal to all those who are too cool and too wordly (sylvan, nevis, etc..) ponder anything else than their own perfectly starfished anuses. see y'all on the road!

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from toothless grinDec 12 2002 - 03:38

why hang around if it's too uncool for you cats. I'm sure there is an oasis chat page mumbling to itself, somewhere...

seek, little man, and you shall find...

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from DeanDec 12 2002 - 01:07

I think your last sentence would make a better band name.

hey listen | from the original idaho fanDec 11 2002 - 22:28

hey listen im starting a new band
and i wanted all you guys to come out and hear it. It's called "Illiterate inbred computer fucks who talk about bands alot but know lots of stuff too about the human anatomy and otehr things". We are workin on a nice sound. Kind of suicide mug me in the back of my apartment complex sound, you know, idaho-ish. Oh, and I just saw my friends sisters ass sticking up in the air while she was sleeping. Goodnight

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from sylvanDec 11 2002 - 22:23

nevis, you're my hero. If you haven't noticed this page is thronged by indie snobs. i like your honesty and straightforwardness. i'm probably making some enemies here, but...they throw "rare" import cds like a chinese star in my head. get over it, you're not special.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from christianNov 04 2002 - 05:06

the almighty NEVIS has spoken. this thread is officially CLOSED.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from NevisNov 04 2002 - 02:01

Give it a break guys: awful drivel, all of it.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from lucaOct 31 2002 - 09:19

dear alistair g, i suggest to you a singer called 'moltheni'...his first cd (natura in replay) is very intimate and sorrowful... the last one (fiducia nel nulla migliore - faith in nothing better) is very oblique and faster than the other.
a surprise!!!

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from lucaOct 31 2002 - 09:09

this forum is more and more incredible...!!! all natural lemon and lime flavors... wow!!! the last song of 'turning into small' (paradigm somehow) is a trouble beauty!!!!

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from christianOct 31 2002 - 05:07

all natural lemon and lime flavors - they put out 3 albums, all of which were great, "turning into small" in particular. this band definitely falls under the category of "shoegazing", but they had an incredible sense of dynamics that many other shoegazing bands lacked. sadly, they were largely overlooked and no longer exist.
there's also mean red spiders (from canada, i think) who have released 2 stellar albums.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from MonkeyManOct 31 2002 - 04:24

Cool...

Slowdive anyone?

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from DaveOct 30 2002 - 15:18

I'm guessing this isn't shoegazer, but I found a band called Landing who sound awesome. They're from Utah but now live in Connecticut. There are some free MP3s of them here: www.landingsite.net I didn't think much of them upon my first few listens, but now I love and am sending my money to England for limited 250-pressing 7-inch vinyls and whatnot. I'm curious: Listen and let me know what you think of them! Very cool sonic textures in some of those songs.

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from alistair gOct 29 2002 - 15:12

hi luca,

were there any good italian shoegazing bands worth chevking out ?

RE: shoegazing 3: sonic cathedral-ly ? | from lucaOct 29 2002 - 14:14

blueboy? unisex?? sarah records???
fantastic!!!!
but ian masters voice on 'shell' in 'in ribbons' is over my comprehension...

blueboy were better than pale saints | from alistair gOct 28 2002 - 17:26

is seems like the last shoegazing revival might have died out, so maybe it's time for another one,

pale saints ? pants saint more like ! , not a patch on blueboy, check out lazy thunderstorms off their album unisex.
