So influential..to the whole britpop era and also influential to other bands..yet so underrated!
Anybody like them..? Sadly I only recently discovered them thanks to my teacher, ha.

I really like them! They haven't had as much impact on me as some other bands, but they are definitely an essential part of my record collection.
And i was really happy when one day in history class i was bored so i doodled "pavement" on my notes and the teacher passed by and said, "oh, you like pavement? Great band!" - then to add, "i thought kids these days only listened to stuff like the used..."
Haha, never!

Hmm maybe they're more popular in the UK! I've never heard anyone mention them around here.., sadly. Not all of their stuff is great but I do like some of it..

^^I agree Twilight Fairy, where I am also, you rarely hear their name being mentionned...
and I also think they were very influential..

I sence a lot of their influence in The Strokes for example...

Very good band,
I am getting to know their music more and more and really enjoying it.

I guess there's something about history teachers, huh? Haha. My teacher's pretty obsessed about music and is in a band. He likes a lot of genres. He told us he has a 500 something record collection. i envy that. Mine is getting up to 100!

I know..my teacher also collects vinyl records and has 150 ..and I think he has a countless amount of CDs since he's been buying them for what, 14 years now?
Haha our history teachers should so meet. :p

I also think they're underrated, but I read they got a lof of critical praise in the 90s...
