Re: OMG

I think Shoegaze was over-take by Brit-Pop like Oasis which is more less original. Even Johnny Marr tried to emulate Oasis.

like I said it's a loosely defined genre, but this definetly fits; look how the dude just stares at his shoes. Great song by the way.

"Guitar" (aka Michael Luckner) does some very nice MBV-type stuff:

I sort of grew up with Spooky and Gala, but I'm just now listening to Pale Saints for the first time. Gotta tell you that it sounds like. . .er. . .Lush. Same jingle-jangle lead guitar. Don't get me wrong. . .it's all good. I'll love the album.

Re: great ShoeGaze albums of all time...

I'm suprised you didn't hear them back in 92 when In Ribbons came out. They played them on 120 Minutes; one of the greatest shows of all-time. The bass player left and the chick that sings Blue Flower continued w/ one more LP which was quite a bit poppier and not as dark. I traded for a bootleg VHS of one of their shows; they come off a lot more rock band live, but it was still ok. I was really suprised to discover the bass player/singer was a male b/c his voice sounds like a female; really an androgynous band as the singer had short hair-cut. I'll have to do some research and do a "Where are they now" post :)

side note on Lush - geez, there drummer was flat out sick; I them 3 times and each time was more and more amazed out how good he was. Only a few alt rock drummers in his class; others being Fugazi drummer and Sundays drummer.

Ian Masters popped up guest vocalling on this song by Luminous Orange from Japan not so long ago:

Check out this band's stuff, it's really brilliant :) How "labbish" is this song BTW?

It doesn't really sound that much like Stereolab, but it kind of reminds me of how exciting I thought they sounded when I first heard them. If that makes sense. And sung in French too :)
