Yes! Yes! But not Lucinda Williams. Her twang just rubs me the wrong way!
I just have to add the drummer for Interpol used to play with my dh in Chicago before he moved to NYC.
Franz makes me wish I was still young and single and dancing!

i used to be indie-rock. went to all the shows and everything, but alas me kids love them some kid music and not so much mommy and daddy music. actually my dd1 kinda freaks out about non-kid stuff and i'm always with one of my dds. dh is keeping up and has tons of MP3s, but he has sooooooo left me in the dust.

lucinda i love. sundays not so much. i remember mazzy star from way back when (i'm 120).

We're big into the Flaming Lips in this house. I love Belle and Sebastian, and like most of the bands listed in this thread.

Yeah I'll be 33 next month. I think even using the term "indie rock" dates me!

So do you have the new Lips album? I am not quite sure how I feel about it. It's quite a departure from Yoshimi & The Soft Bulletin. But not quite In A Priest Driven Ambulance!

Oh me too! I can't stop myself from moving when I listen to them.

Love Mazzy Star, too. We ran into Hope Sandoval at a show in San Francisco years ago. She is SO tiny.

Another Interpol fan around here, although dh doesn't get them. I don't think he was a big enough Joy Division fan back in the day

Yes it does require a certain love of Joy Division for sure. I heard this band recently called Film School and just thought, Wow, these guys really want to be the child of Joy Division & The Cure!

Oh and I wanted to say the listening to The Sundays kind of just makes me want to listen to Cocteau Twins. How's THAT for a blast from the past!!

Makes me think of 120 Minutes on MTV.

I've still got some old episodes of 120 minutes on tape!! So much good stuff on there I can't erase that just takes me back to a totally different time in my life. Like The Dead Milkmen. I would never listen to them nowadays but how much did ya'll love Punk Rock Girl???
post #38 of 695
The Dead Milkmen are from Philly (we live in the Philly burbs) so they were pretty big around here.

I used to have a 120 minutes tape but my parents threw it out when I moved out of their house (damn). I remember who was on it, though...Cocteau Twins, Sinead O'Connor (singing Mandinka) and Fishbone.

Ah Sinead used to be so angry. I got her last album of reggae protest songs-it's not as strange as you'd think!

Oh, I have THE BIGGEST (okay, I'm sure there are bigger) collection of CDs from high school. Some of them:

Blur, Cure, James, Judybats, Ocean Blue, Sugar, Bjork, Teenage Fanclub, New Order, Paul Westerberg, Smiths, Psychedelic Furs, Sundays, and on and on

I actually try to listen to some of them now but they have aged and have a lot of scratches and such

Now I don't spend ANY money on music, but we have a great college station around here that plays Death Cab for Dutie, Old 97's (and Rhett Miller solo), with an occassional throw-back to New Order, Smiths kind of stuff.

Anyone else have the digital cable station called "Adult Alternative"? It is AWESOME about 90% of the time (and then you hear a neil diamond song and say "Huh?")
