I think bands like Pavement, Daniel Johnson, GBV, Royal Trux, Sebadoh etc were rooted more in college radio and the alternative music of the mid-late eighties, whereas a lot of the bands now are more influenced by punk and noise rock. You do of course have bands like DDD who are more indie pop, but overall i think the new wave of lo-fi acts are a bit more aggressive and immediate.

Thats taking nothing away from the precursors, in fact Pavement, Sebadoh and GBV are three of my favourite bands and i'd place them above bands like Wavves, No Age and TNV in favour, i just think this new batch of noiseniks have breathed fresh life and a bit of fun into what i personally thought was a pretty stagnant few years in music.
