    I strangely missed out completely on this 'genre'. I think I must have been a Dylan obsessive at the time. Other than Ride, what other recommendations are there?

    Does "Doppelganger" by Curve count? If so, that one. Lovely.

    MBV - Loveless. Not quite shoegaze but def it's mother.

    The US has thrown up some good shoegaze too. Try Implodes' Black Earth.

    Chapterhouse were the archetypical shoegaze band, but were shit at the time and have dated badly.

    Pale saints were awesome. Especially the first album. Really good live too.

    Here's their "best" track. Ugh. To think I bunked off school and got two buses to get to Rhyl to buy this album the day it came out.:facepalm:

    On the other hand I once went to see Chapterhouse and Pale Saints - and Papa Sprain, who I never heard of before or since,came on first and played one track, very similar to this one.

    Cue some very confused teenage shoegazers...

    My then band supported them.

    And them. One song on their first album was actually ok. Hip clown rag I think.
    Edit *here*

    Only the verse.

    Oh and them.
    As I recall one of them was a tree surgeon. He didn't want to give up his job and he group split.
    They were terrible anyway.



    . . . All rubbish of course.

    Oh god this brings back memories.



    Don't get me wrong, I have always hated it.

    Heh. I think I was Bleach's biggest fan for a few weeks.

    It was all just a brief hiatus in my " grunge years" anyway...

    Saw Slowdive at Clapham Grand. Not a great band but I've never heard such an gigantic-golden-guitar-wave sound like that ever again. Their back catalogue definitely improves with age. Slowdive's Pygmalion is the shoegazing equivalent of 'metal machine music' i.e. designed to annoy the hell out of the record company. Hardly any of the tracks you could call songs and Creation dropped them straight afters.

    JAMC, MBV, Ride, Slowdive, et al, but also Black Tambourine were excellent. They didn't produce much, but their Complete Works is superb.
