Will check out The Byrds
first impressions are favourable..
BTW Harry, how were the Durutti Column Received in the 80's?
Everything shoe gazing and miserablist stems from the Velvet underground IMO.
Byrds were the jingly jangly guitars.
Those three bands would be the template for most indie stuff.
Throw in the Stooges for the raw power and you have most elements needed for a newish guitar band.
