None of any real note: Dr Seuss, The Deviants & Soup are among some of the thankfully lost bands of the nineties. British Air Power are still going, though but now they're called British Sea Power.

This week's fav: "Out of Reading with Gallic laced Stereolabelled avant-pop filtered through folksiness and electronica with viola, theramin and spacey synths, vocals in English, French and Spanish. A heady cocktail of mown grass and absinthe" ("What's On", Birmingham's answer to Time Out)
or for the more discerning listener: "You're shite" (Paul Mead, Essex)
Strengths and Weaknesses:
Strengths include excellent presentation and dress sense, impeccable record collections and of course,fantastic songs. Weaknesses? Well, we're never going to be as big as Travis are we?
