2 more things - #1 the
Misconception that Lost Sirens were dregs of the sessions. .Some fans still cannot fathom that they were songs saved for the next album. They knew they were good songs and that changing music attitudes would not affect the songs in 3-5 years The mistake was not putting out a 2 record set .
#2 - playing new order songs for idiots will only exasperate. After playing a minute of dream attack the idiot said it was too tinny.I asked about her favourite music. She said Meatloaf. Why not Barf or Horsesuck ? So some theatrical pigfart is just great.,but not NO. Spare me ,

I don't listen to Lost Sirens very much. Just me?

Do I sense a hint of irritation from the normally laid back and spliffed-out Mr KIC?

I cant help thinking that my top 18 fave Led Zep songs would mostly be better than the 18 songs from the Sirens period. Perhaps WFTSC would be the one exception. But it does feel a bit like comparing apples with oranges.

I admit the free discs from Mojo and Q ,etc.often have cool wonderful stuff, and some bands have a lot of great songs (Luna for instance)but what band is better than NO after 1989? I cannot come up with any names other than Luna.

Well in the immediate aftermath of Technique...
The Stone Roses debut (actually from '88) seemed to slowly rise up, it felt like something new for the 90's (singles were still being released off it in '91)
Pixies released their best albums in '88 and '89 but still felt new and fresh, when I saw them circa 91/92.
Primal Scream's Screamadelica came out in '91. It felt like a reinvention of indie dance for the 90's.
The Rave/House scene as a whole felt like something new and different. And it spawned enduring acts like:
Underworld (mk II)
Leftfield
Chemical Brothers
Orbital
Prodigy (Fat Of The Land was great. Diasagree? Fight me!)
St Etienne
DJ Shadow
Portishead
Massive Attack (Blue Lines was overrated but the two albums that followed it were great)
REM started in the 80's but '92's Automatic For The People was huge (as was '91's Out Of Time)
Radiohead
Paul Weller
Nick Cave
The Verve
Sparklehorse
Jesus & Mary Chain were still good in 92 & 94.
Manic Street Preachers
Bjork
Beck
My Bloody Valentine
Sonic Youth
U2's Achtung Baby ('91) and Zooropa ('93) were my favourite albums by them (controversial, I know)
PJ Harvey
Pulp
Boo Radleys
Morrissey (Vauxhall and I was fantastic, Your Arsenal was also pretty good. Too bad about present day Moz)

Want to get more recent than the 90s?
Arcade Fire
Beta Band
Mercury Rev
Doves
British Sea Power
Elbow (surprisingly devisive, this)
Queens Of The Stone Age
The Strokes (first album)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
LCD Soundsystem
Vampire Weekend
White Stripes
The xx
Fat White Family

What have I missed?
