Re: Laetitia reminisces

It's not just about politics. The bands who've come to represent shoegaze the most are basically listless, joyless, and harmless. And they chose to be so for superficial aesthetic reasons, because it was cool, or rather, because being otherwise (energetic, joyful, engaged) was uncool. It was a reaction to the 80's. I get it. As I implied, superficiality isn't necessarily bad, if the intent is to enliven, e.g., to make asses shake. There's a place for that, always has been. But the corner (ahem) shoegazers sulked in, is a non-place, and the intent was to infect others with the same sluggish, sullen indifference. I find that distasteful. /hyperbole
