Do you remember/are you aware of any of these bands?
Music geeky types will certainly know at least three of them, and they're not all as obscure as each other, but I'm doing a bit of killing several birds with one stone here.
Also, I'm currently listening to the last Ladytron album properly for the first time, and I know it's become a journalism cliché to describe things as "painfully cool", but there are songs on here I couldn't describe any other way. Just curious, since obviously because of my style over content obsession I've got enough things like that to fill a double compilation, but - have any of you ever heard something you'd attach that description to?
Edit : Gosh. No surprises over Red Lipstique (although I know they've apparently been played at B-Movie) but I'm delighted to discover that people have heard of The Bigger The God. I don't suppose that means anyone's got a copy of 'Pentonville', does it?
