Re: Laetitia reminisces

short, but interesting. such an interesting period of time for the band. I'd love to read much more of what she has to say about it all.

Re: Laetitia reminisces

"It was the shoegaze era, which Iím not dismissing entirely, but some people saw it as the music of Thatcherís children because she killed the nerve in people. So there was this really dull thing going on where people looked at their shoes and had no self-confidence because Thatcher had crushed it."

In a deep field, this is perhaps the silliest thing Sadier has ever said.

Re: Laetitia reminisces

I know. That frightened me her talking like that. Disturbed me all day. I was like, " s not shaving her legs helps her feel feminine?" That's strange.

Re: Laetitia reminisces

well she did say 'some people saw it as...' so it's not necessarily her own opinion.

Re: Laetitia reminisces

Doubt she would have mentioned it otherwise.

Just cringeworthy. Funny too - I was listening to Lush's Split for the first time in forever this morning, and had just reflected on how much I loved that LP (and still do). I assure you my feelings had nothing to do with Thatcherite oppression.
