Just about any rock band from the 70s - a time when musicians were musicians.
Bay city rollers
Tartan pop is not rock...
Aaaah. Now your cooking with gas. Seen em at Tiffany’s in Newcastle in 1985 or 86. One of me top three gigs ever.
True rock and roll
Unfortunately I was too young to see them then. First saw them in 95 at Cardiff, then three further times since. Superb band.
Took me a long while to "get" Belle and Sebastian. Much enjoyment had when I did
Sounds like you got the better end of the deal
Love Affair, after that "thanks Donald and Methvan thread" on the PF forum
Chicago Transit Authority (aka Chicago)
For some reason when I was a moody teenager and the absolute target market, I decided I didn’t like The Pixies. How wrong I was. Took a bbc4 documentary to make me give them a try and think they’re brilliant now !
I agree with this to an extent. I wouldn’t necessarily say I think they are brilliant but I like them and used to say they were crap.
Frank Black producing Pete Yorn’s self titled album was what made me give them another go.
The Temptations and Four Tops
Sorta felt this way about The Clash up until a few year ago. Liked the singles n that but didn't think they were worth much more effort. I think I wanted everything to be White Riot, London Calling or Clash City Rockers but it's not, and I don't think I quite got that at first. I probably prefer their more refined or reggae-infused type material these days.
Had planet of sound on a compilation and based them on that when I was younger.
What a fucking band! Kim deals voice opposite Francis's vocal over those head fuck guitars, it's just great. Seen them a couple of times. Their gig at the Mayfair in about 89 is on you tube.
Amazing to think that their singer when they released "Everlasting Love" was only 16 or 17. What a voice. Comparable to Steve Marriott of Humble Pie.
They were a bit before my time (I was six in 89) but I got well into them in my teens. Since they reformed I managed to see them at the Academy in Newcastle a couple of year ago. One of my favourite gigs just cos it was them I was watching. No Kim Deal like but Paz Lenchantin is a spot on replacement.
The sound they make is like nothing else.
Saw them playing with paz a couple of years back, big shoes to fill but she was great.
