Hi there,

Have a listen to The Smiths - The Queen is Dead and Strangeways here we Come. Also try Morrissey - Vauxhall and I.

The Smiths have influenced most decent UK bands around today inc Coldplay, Radiohead, Oasis, Manic Street Preachers, The Doves, Arctic monkeys, The Kooks etc etc.

Morrissey is Brandon Flowers biggest influence and is by far the best lyricist there has been - bar none !!

I have to agree with previous posts by the way - The Doves are excellent.

Sugar, oh my God, I wish they would get back together. Man they were awesome and Bob's completely tanked since.
I didn't realise you were from Minneapolis! Guess I didn't need to recommend Husker or Sugar for you. Agree on Bob, unfortunately - I'm not willing to listen to his new one frankly, Workbook was a great album, but everything since has been pretty damn lacklustre. But on that note, if you haven't heard Grant Hart's Intolerance, you should definitely check it out.

And if you do think good of the Smiths, I recommend Kitchens of Distinction too.

Kitchens of Distinction - what a great shout! Love is Hell is a brilliant album.

I like the smiths, have most of their albums. Kitchens and the Church were awesome. I always loved the name too, Kitchens of Distinction.

I should've made a more inclusive list, or explained myself better. If it was alternative or rock in the 80's or 90's I've at least tried it... NOFX, Face To Face, Midnight Oil, INXS, all the Sub Pop bands, The Verve, etc. What I'm looking for are New bands, or more recent ones that may have a legacy from the stuff I liked before. Like the Doves or the National; stuff like that.

Who's the new Shake Your Money Maker Black Crows? What new (or newish)other brit bands have that big hook/big production that Oasis did? Are there any other hair metal immitators besides Buckcherry that are worthwhile? Etc etc..

And thank you all for the suggestions so far!!

The only Grant Hart album I picked up was Nova Mob's Evil (Old?) Empire. Fantastic first track, rest was meh...

Elbow = overrated

Try Kasabian though - they are a bit like Oasis - 2nd album Empire is amazing
And Jet are Oasis wannabes as well

Two bands I really enjoy and recommend are Ra Ra Riot and Glasvegas. Ra Ra Riot more so. Glasvegas has a lot of potential for future albums though their debut isn't bad at all.

Glasvegas:

good call on The Notwist. Neon Golden is one of my favorite albums of this decade.

I strongly dislike Oasis.

I felt like this was the thread in which to say that.
