We all need to earn a crust and some people are perfectly happy to lend their services to others. This is an exceptional read and may enlighten you a little:

I have this unreasonable rationale that all touring bands should be made up of people who have either left or split up from known bands.

Like when I saw REM , they had ex Revolting cocks drummer Bill Rieflin and they had Ken Stringfellow from The Posies on keyboards , and I was happy BECAUSE i'd heard of them.

Your problem is you discount anything not indie, because indie music is mostly generated through corporate machines so it sounds the same as every other indie band. The Smiths and Blur are the only ever decent indie bands.
Spoken like a guy that doesn't know indie. Name one band today that is good and is not considered indie.

I can do that. Radiohead. But still, indie is where it's at for the most part.

I consider Radiohead indie. they are certainly not played on any of the mainstream radio stations around these parts.

Any more of this pointless Indie vs Mainstream argument polluting my thread gets deleted on account of it being extremely boring.
