They helped invent shoegaze, if nothing else.

The Jesus And Mary Chain should also get some credit for that.

I feel like I've really fallen behind on my early good pace at album listening. The DI listening last weekend hurt, and the holiday this weekend will hurt too.

But, hey, in real life, suddenly I'm an alternative rock expert compared to most, so that's better.

Coming to think of it, perhaps a better genre label for My Bloody Valentine would be obsessivegaze!

Yeah, Psychocandy was pretty bloody important, though I don't listen to it much myself.

Outside of any actual real friendships one might form, the best thing about this site is the wealth of musical opinions. I have learned about so many bands via this site, and hopefully have recommended a few, too.

Your e-mail reference Loveless and Nowhere but said you didn't have them uploaded. You sent me:

Doppleganger - Curve
Mezcal Head - Swervedriver
Vortura - Bailter Space
In the Presence of Nothing - Lilys

Absolutely agree. This site has immensely helped me in my quest to be a knowledged music fan. If I end up with half the expertise of Phanan, I will be a very happy man.

There are some good songs on it though, even if it sounds as if there's a table saw attempting to split a townhouse in half roaring in the background.

Ah, righto. Will have to upload Nowhere for you if you like A Storm In Heaven even a little bit. And Mezcal Head is probably my favourite of those four uploaded - absolutely sensational and rockin' album, though not as shoegazy as some (Duress aside, which is just shoegaze bliss).

NSW, did you say you desire listening to more Bowie? I think I e-mailed two albums to Axver at some point. I could forward them to you if you wanted. It's Station to Station (my favorite) and Low.

BTW, Ax, if you have Nowhere in hand, I'd like a link to it. Still haven't listened to anything by Ride yet.

No question about that. Might have to dig it out later and give it a play. I haven't heard a track from it in months.

I'll also be very glad when I get my own laptop and my own iTunes. The first thing I'm going to do is go out and buy a bunch of blank CDs and take all my songs off the family iTunes and put them on my own. Then, it won't look as suspicious that there's a hundred new songs every couple of weeks.
