Great song – I wish I was listening to this type of music, when it came out. I had a few bands that fit this genre that I listened to in the early eightie – like Tears for Fears, but I feel I missed the boat on a bunch of bands like Split Enz (especially considering how much of a Neil Finn/Crowded House fan I am).
Outside of Radiohead (because Radiohead is in a class by its own), I have two favorite brit bands – Travis and Elbow. Elbow is more consistently great. Their album Leaders of the Free World was brilliant. They recently released their new album, The Seldom Seen Kid – and it is also brilliant. Here’s a video from the album for the song “Grounds for Divorce”.
Thanks Merujo for introducing me to Dance Party Friday. Every once in awhile I look to see if there are any new episodes and who am I kidding – there are always new episodes. Here’s a good one for a Friday at the end of a long week.
