Default 80s British Noisepop

I`m bored of grunge getting so much attention and this getting ignored when it`s basically the same thing ...... only much better.

So go check out some of these bands...

Swervedriver
Fudge Tunnel
Mega City Four
Senseless Things
Pop Will Eat Itself
Bomb Disneyland/Everything
My Bloody Valentine
Spacemen 3
Jesus & Mary Chain
Ride
Slowdive

And then perhaps we can stop all this ridiculous talk about Nirvana inventing grunge ...ok?

not really. those bands dont call themselves grunge.i dont think of nirvana as a grunge band. the whole term "grunge" as applied to a musical genre is bollocks

Well those bands are more shoegazer than noisepop , there is a crossover element but I was going for the heavier sounding bands.
