It's a rock genre that was popular mainly in Britain from the late 80s and early 90s, characterised by groups such as My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Chapterhouse and Slowdive. Very much into vast walls of sounds and guitars that don't sound like guitars. The name actually derives from a criticism of the genre, from a quote that all the bands would do is gaze at their shoes, as they were so caught up in the music.

Be that as it may, you have twice as many as me, at least.

I just found the Gold Coast to be the most vapid, base, shallow place on earth, complete with a horrible climate and the worst town planning I've ever encountered.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh God



Guys I came back to say that I just stuck all of my Tom Petty, U2, and Bruce Springsteen music on my iPod.

I realize it's not all cleaned up yet, and that there are several duplicate songs, however....it comes up to 854 songs, 2:19:11:51 total time, and 10.04 GB

Don't mind me a bit of shoegazing. Saw Ride live, they were awesome! Saw Swervedriver live, they bored me to tears.

Dunno if you deffo classify them as "shoegazer" but House of Love are fantastic. Check out their early stuff on Creation, before Guy Chadwick got completely drugfucked.

No Ax, tell us what you really think?

This is true. You heard of Solar Powered People? I've seen them classified in with some of the "neo-shoegazer" or "shoegazer revival" stuff of the last few years. I don't really buy that, I wouldn't call them shoegazer myself, but certainly their stuff is drenched in delay and it rocks well.

i know i don't want to stay here. but for Uni, especially when you're associating with so many out-of-towners in a small, tight-knit community with a decent enough nightlife, and when you're given a half-scholarship, the decision is sort of made for you when the alternative is wallowing in Adelaide at a Tafe-with-benefits.

Haha, you've just made Ax and I really, really jealous. Even for the apparently shitty Swervedriver show.

Never heard of HOL described as shoegazey but thanks for the recommendation, may check them out anyway.
