On The Strangeness of UK Pop-Rock Culture, or, Memories of the Bad Music Era (83-84-85-86-87)

and one from the 90s, which actually I rather like


  1. Funny -- as many times as you're mentioned the Era of Bad British Music, I kept waiting for you to cite Gaye Bikers On Acid and Zodiac Mindwarp. And alas. Those two acts were aggressively promoted in the Stateside indie music press, but I don't think much of anyone took the bait.

  2. Good grief.

    Boys Wonder were Oasis before their time, weren't they? Shining, the Beatles and the Pistols, "buy this band"... and the eyebrows.
