    Hey everybody,

    If we’re on an early 90’s trip how about SEnseless Things and Mega City Four, now they are two bands I’d like to see reform…

    not sure if Urusei Yatsura ever wrote a song about Calvin Johnson, tends to be things about spaceships, glitter, and plastic ashtrays…

    John-that song about Calvin Johnson has lyrics like "he`s the greatest dancer in the USA;he has his own label;and it starts with K;and he`s really cool and he`s really hip".
    Javro-ok I`ll stop with the trivia,the answer to the Ned`s Atomic Dustbin question is Mogwai;Stuart and Dominic met each other at a Ned`s show.

    Yeah, I was thinking of XTC too but never got around to mentioning them. Let’s not forget about their alter egos the Dukes of Stratosphere either.

    Yeah your right BR I did miss it, go figure:rolleyes: Actually not even sure I posted to this thread…I love a lot of british bands though. I like some David Bowie, mostly his early stuff though, early Stones, Kinks, Ruts, and lots that have already been mentioned.
