The Wedding Present were shocking. Quite, quite dreadful. Much worse than Def Leppard, for example. Much, muchworse.

I guess the Wedding Present are best appreciated if you have dumped, have been dumped, or have lived in a dump. I've done all three sothat'swhy I like them :D

How about the ‘shoegazing’ bands of the late eighties?

Bunch of floppy fringed middle class softies with two many guitar pedals or sonic cathedrals of sound?

Examples: Ride, Curve, Catherine Wheel, Slowdive, Lush

My Bloody Valentine’s ‘Isn’t Anything’ still sounds pretty good to me (in a sort of nostalgic did I leave any roaches in the ash tray under me bed for me mother to find)

:D

Catherine Wheel's first two albums arent bad. Early nineties though mate.

Speaking of Iron Maiden, I belive that a relative of Bruce Dickinson was in the Catherine Wheel.

Shoegazing? Yes, I remember it well. What a legacy of timeless classics the shoegazing movement left us. There was ... ummmm ... errrr... well, there was ...

Paul Dianno was also fg in Maiden before Dickinson,the first 2 albums were superb,as were the gigs.

Those were the days.

I saw Iron Maiden 13 times btween 1979 and 1981 when D'ianno was the boss. THe first time I saw Dickinson was the last until the 90's. The band are now just a shadow of their former selves, releasing greatest hits albums to rake in the cash.

I didn't pay Maiden any attention during the early Dickinson years and was very surprised to discover they had conquered the world during the middle of the decade..

The first 2 albums still are superb, takes me back to the Marquee and the Rainbow gigs. Getting the bus home soaked in sweat and avoiding skinheads!

Those were the days Saab.
