Oh, and CMI making a list that includes Pavement? What is this world coming to?

GO LISTEN TO MATCHBOX 20.

I will. And I will think of you. And I will wear a party hat. And I will be aroused.

80\'s indie love!
 
Husker Du - Zen Arcade or New Day Rising
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
Replacements - Let It Be
Meat Puppets - Meat Puppets II or Mirage
Throwing Muses - House Tornado (although they might not be indie - they sound indie though)
X - Los Angeles

This stuff tends to be punker and more crappily produced than some of the bands mentioned elsewhere.

Also, Guided by Voices, Uncle Tupelo, Mudhoney, Bikini Kill, Nic Cave and the Bad Seeds, Jawbox, Superchunk, Sebadoh, and the Fastbacks are all bands with indie roots who've done some good stuff and haven't been mentioned so far.

Am I the only one over 30 in this thread?

no, soul daddy's a grandpa hipster too. DaveR hasn't weighed in but he's older.

I love Husker Du but I don't really like anthing else you listed except Sebadoh and Superchunk.

Didn't read everything, but:

Shouldn't be discussing Radiohead at all in this thread IMO. They're completely different from all these other bands. If you're taking indie =! Pitchfork-reviewed (which this seems like), might as well add in Kanye West.

Wilco and the Flaming Lips are probably "outliers" as well.

The Shins has to be on this list.

XO is ES's best album, but I'm kind've a sucker for production. From a Basement I also like more than Either/Or probably, but they're all close.

Are the Smiths indie? The Pixies? Seem to fit in with the other bands here.

Sonic Youth is kinda gay IMO.

Bright Eyes should probably have an album on the list. Maybe they're not top 10 in quality, but they seem kinda quintessential lonely-girl-black-mascara-acoustic-guitar music.

Oh yeah, and Modest Mouse [censored] sucks.

Am I the only one on here that would suggest Elliott Smith's self-titled album over XO and Either/Or?

Meh... I know what I wanted recommended, and I got it. Kanye was not wanted, and radiohead was.

I guess the best way I could have described it was "music reviewed in pitchfork, that is rockesque." I said 'indie' and got the same.

The flaming lips are not.

They got cut since he already has shins stuff.

ES didnt quite make it [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img], so its all moot.

[/ QUOTE ]

For some reason or another, it seems no one really considered pre-Pixies. I def. wouldnt mind see TQiD on there.

Not a fan either

He already has them, and I dont think they're quite good enough to make it anyway.

You rock.

I assume it will take as long to DL. So I will probably set the comp up to DL it tomorrow night whilst I sleep.

Again I say thanx guys.
