    During the 1990s - my teenage years - I was totally into electronic (dance) music + metal. I didn't care for Indie really. However I used to listen to John Peel over staellite radio a lot and he played a fair amount of that stuff. I actually liked most of it, also bc it was a nice contrast to all the electonics sounds. However, I never really liked ot to the extent I actually bought any "indie" band at all. Only exception was the Jesus and Mary Chain - who I still think are awesome.

    Woebot was right about Fourtet. I ended up selling that album shortly afterwards.

    The first few Belle and Sebastian albums are good though.

    Yes, there are some scans of the Indie charts from the mid 80s in my link above.

    Also the John Peel Festive 50s well worth looking back on.

    fourtet is like the new soulboy curator these days lol. unearths some interesting music but when it comes to making it he's terrible. same with floating points, found that album he did a few years ago unspeakably boring.
