Deliberately left off Oasis and co, This is the real dregs of UK Guitar Pop in the mid to late 90s.

It will be tough to choose, but choose you must!

Hopefully someone better qualified will do an American equivalent.

Seahorses.

But to be honest any band here whose name isn't a shorthand for 'irrepressible hilarity' is doing pretty well.

Cast, the Swinging Blue Jeans, The, of Britpop, would come a close second though by virtue of being so bloody BORING.

Dingbod Kesterson, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:04 (6 years ago) Permalink

None of these bands have anything defensible. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Dodgy probably should win because of Good Enough which is probably the worst song of the Britpop Years.

i could vote for all of these c*nts except maybe dodgy who i had a small soft spot for.

I still own a single or 2 by:

Dodgy
Sleeper
Gene
Bluetones
Shed 7
Longpigs

Every other band I hated even back in those dark days.

Nah about £7 I think. It's the only one that's worth anything apart from the gig-only Slight Return 7"

Frogman Henry, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:10 (6 years ago) Permalink

Although yes the reason I still own Dodgy and Longpigs singles is that they won't even fetch 10p.

Haven't Dodgy already been co-opted by the Guilty Pleasures mob hyuk hyuk?

Dingbod Kesterson, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:10 (6 years ago) Permalink

"The Riverboat Song" has a decent riff
Dodgy have enough inoffensive shit to give them a pass
"Slight Return" is a banger
Shed 7 are funny to pretend to like because they cause a lot of indie butthurtedness
Other than that, stfu, gas face.

Dom Passantino, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:12 (6 years ago) Permalink

Dodgy were sort of not-completely-shit pre-Free Peace Sweet. Also they're from Worcestershire.

This lot all had at least a few good songs, often more:
Dodgy
Shed 7
Travis
Longpigs
Bluetones
Gomez

These three I either had a vague soft spot for despite myself, or else don't know enough to comment:
Reef
3 Colours Red

These are all fucking shit:

Stereophonics. I thought you said this was going to be a difficult choice? Are you just baiting Geir here?

Bad, but too mediocre to be memorable in any way other than vague memory of some signature "quirk":

Catatonia
Cast
Reef
Seahorses
3 Colours Red
Shed 7
Space

One or two half-decent tunes in their repertoire (not that I'd choose to listen to them, I'd probably not turn them off id they came on the radio though):

Dodgy
Sleeper
Bluetones
Menswear
Kula Shaker
Space

Horrible:

Ocean Colour Scene
Stereophonics
Gene
Reef

No memory of whatsoever beyond vague recollection of seeing name in Melody Maker:

Gomez
Travis
Longpigs
Supernaturals

None of these bands ever did a song a tenth as good as "Jesus He Knows Me"

On the money. The tune for JHKM is at least memorable. For all it was supposedly a genre based on alleged "classic" "songwriting" "beatles" "are kid" it's very hard to actually call up any of these band's tunes beyond a couple of lines from the odd chorus. EG I cannot remember a single one of Cast's songs. Not one. And they were on the radio all the time. Also, you forgot the lightning seeds.

Dom Passantino, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:22 (6 years ago) Permalink

I once watched Stereophonics at Glastonbury, in one of the rainy years and around the 11am slot, and pretended not to hate them to curry favour with the girl I was with. While watching them she dismissed my very tentative advances. Thinking about it this may well be a definitive low point in my life

DJ Mencap, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:22 (6 years ago) Permalink

I didn't know whether to put Embrace on it or not. All these bands were probably worse. I nearly put Placebo & Ash on.

3 Colours Red should really be in a different 'Britrock' poll, which I'm considering doing but for the fact that the bands that would feature don't get enough recognition on ILM

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 28 May 2008 15:30 (6 years ago) Permalink

I've listened to The Bluetones several times over the last year, having not listened to them for about 8-10 years prior, and they're actually alright. Good guitarist, good drummer, by the second album actually doing some quite interesting not-Britpop-at-all-really things.

Gomez's first album was alright; again, not really Britpop. More Beck goes proper blues. I guess they were seen as "inauthentic student scum" though. One of their later albums, forget the title, is really good, very eclectic, great production, electronics and brass and pop hooks.

Embrace and Ash I guess both survived way beyond Britpop and kept knocking out charting singles for years afterwards.

Travis' first album was actually pretty good, when they still rocked a bit.

Longpigs had about three great singles on the first album. A mate swears blind the second album is a lost classic.

Shed 7 at least had some decent singles, Dolphin and a handful off the second record.

Homegrown by Dodgy is, I'd say, a pretty classic Britpop record; embodies a lot of the spirit of that without the nastiness, sounds very of its time rather than being totally retro, still hasn't dated that badly, great production, some awesome arrangements. Shame Free Peace Sweet is FUCKING HORRIFIC.

Kula Shaker amusingly goofy until nazi breakout.

because they were too inoffensive to be truly awful. and 'are you blue or are you blind', 'slight return' and 'if' have their enduring charms.

disliking the bluetones and not hating them as much as you hate reef/OCS/stereophonics are not the same thing. I can't imagine a world with reef in it where someone hates the bluetones more. perhaps if there were a ranking systems rather than an OPO situation, it might have been different. but hey, that's polls for you. if a thread with 300+ answers doesn't explain stuff, maybe polls aren't the way to settle this shit?

Herman G. Neuname, Thursday, 5 June 2008 13:31 (6 years ago) Permalink

Actually I've just been reminded why I hated The Bluetones. They were on the cover of Raw Magazine when it changed from an open minded Heavy Rock/Alternative/Metal mag to a full on Britpop mag. I loved that magazine and it lasted about 2 or 3 issues tops because of that change, and The Bluetones symbolizes the whole thing for me just like Limp Bizkit on the cover of the last Melody Maker does for others.
Obviously that's just for me though and no reason why anyone else should have voted Bluetones.

Worst Of These Mid-Late 90s UK Bands?

Just wanted to point out that shortly after this sequence of posts I encountered a British counterpart at work who was at this Glastonbury appearance and proclaimed it to be the greatest concert experience of his life; it took everything I had not to laugh in his face what with my memory of this clip.
