Re: Laetitia reminisces

fair enough, and it wasn't all bad. but it is wholly mistaken to reminisce/pretend that shoegaze had any political angle or cohesion. it was simply a label/pigeonhole that the likes of NME used, to categorise a style of music that was prevalent at that time.

i think it's simply incorrect to suggest it was a reaction to thatcherism. it was just a bunch of generally fairly mediocre indie bands who were too shy to look at the audience, who therefore looked down instead.
