are there any shoegaze albums worth listening to besides....

loveless
souvlaki
nowhere, smile
spooky, gala
sonny + sam
in ribbons

it seems that from most of what i've read, there's a huge quality gap between these generally acknowledged classics and the less known stuff. tell me what i've been missing out on.

Medicine's 'Shot Forth Self Living'
Slowdive's 'Blue Day' comp. if you can find it

Baaderist (Fabfunk), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 06:50 (nineteen years ago) link

Some older Bailter Space albums have a shoegazer feel, e.g Thermos. The first two Catherine Wheel albums have their moments. Perhaps some Swervedriver?

Jeremy (Jeremy), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:02 (nineteen years ago) link

Depends what yer looking for. For the drifty swhirly Slowdivey sort of thing, try Bowery Electric's _Beat_. I also second the Medicine reccomendations.

Though I'm sure Ned will be here soon to "sort us out". ;-)

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:05 (nineteen years ago) link

Oh, and the Boo Radley's _Everything's Alright Forever_ is rather sadly missing from yer ShoeCanon list.

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:06 (nineteen years ago) link

From this side of the pond:

Drop Nineteens - Delaware
Lilys - In The Presence of Nothing
The first Henry's Dress album
For Against, perhaps?

Nick Mirov (nick), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:10 (nineteen years ago) link

As for shoegazer also-rans, let's see, there was Chapterhouse, Levitation, Revolver... erm... I'm sure there were more...

Nick Mirov (nick), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:17 (nineteen years ago) link

I like Split a helluva lot more than Spooky, which, um, kinda sucks. Granted my affinity for it could be mainly because of sentimental reasons.

oops (Oops), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:21 (nineteen years ago) link

There were a couple of songs by Chapterhouse I used to dig, but I misplaced the album about a decade ago. There was a year in my life (coincidentally, my first year of university) when I was buying anything with either a shoegaze or "madchester" tag — Charlatans UK and Inspiral Carpets come to mind. I was even spending my parents' hard-earned money on Northside, a truly crap band.

Bruce Urquhart (Bruce Urquhart), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:23 (nineteen years ago) link

I'd be tempted to work backwards from the 'gazer thing. Try AR Kane's 69 and the Lolita EP or the first House of Love album.

Other than that, go and get Piano Magic's 'Low Birth Weight'.

NickB (NickB), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:34 (nineteen years ago) link

Drop Nineteens!
I used to love that song, you know, pure noise all the way, until it drops in the middle and some girl says something ordinary as in the middle of a conversation, but her voice. Man, I used to be in love with her!

Medicine!

Maybe not 100% shoegaze, but close enough...
The Cranes
Curve
Bleach
Swirlies

daarkbee, Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:56 (nineteen years ago) link

if we can get our head out of the early 90s for a sec i recommend Inner Sleeve's "Looking Up" and anything on Clairecords, especially the Malory album.

the surface noise (electricsound), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 07:58 (nineteen years ago) link

Lilys, yes, though they went all 60s garage. Though wasn't there also a Shoegazer supergroups called the Lillies?

Bleah, feh. Ditto Catherine Wheel. Though Curve had their moments. Cranes were interesting, but not exactly Shoegazer.

Gah, there were a lot of dire Shoegazer bands, weren't there?

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 08:34 (nineteen years ago) link

Curve had great moments, but I'd def. not include them in this category. You can't really shoegaze with such a groove

Baaderist (Fabfunk), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 08:49 (nineteen years ago) link

submarine

gaz (gaz), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 09:43 (nineteen years ago) link

Of course, someone is supposed to point out about now that Isn't Anything is a good deal better than Loveless.

Anyone for early Moose or the Telescopes or even the Swirlies?

Nag! Nag! Nag! (Nag! Nag! Nag!), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 09:54 (nineteen years ago) link

drop nineteens - kick the tragedy, is the song you are thinking of

secret shine, smashing orange, medicine (and later on, alisons halo)

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 09:56 (nineteen years ago) link

Well... Curve. They went to Syndrome, ergo, they were Shoegazers. :-P

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 09:58 (nineteen years ago) link

Can't believe no one has mentioned Moose yet. Also there was a Sarah band called Eternal (featuring members of Slowdive) who released a 7 inch that encapsulated the genre in a mere three songs!

flowersdie (flowersdie), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 10:43 (nineteen years ago) link

And looking back someone did mention Moose anyway, doh! The worst shoegazing band evah were Feral. Truly dull.

flowersdie (flowersdie), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 10:46 (nineteen years ago) link

Glad to see everyone mentioning all the bands I love. I think the only one I've not seen mentioned so far is the Charlottes, whose last album "Things come apart" was at the rockier end of the shoegazing spectrum. Everything else I'll agree with - get some Medicine, the Telescopes' Creation EPs and LP... nice to see someone else mentioned Submarine before I did.

Rob M (Rob M), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 10:48 (nineteen years ago) link

Christ... I was going to add a note mentioning Eternal and Feral and I was beaten to the punch. Feral's one single was cool anyway, but not as good as Eternal's.

Rob M (Rob M), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 10:50 (nineteen years ago) link

Can't believe no one has mentioned Moose yet

Justin referred to them in his original message (Sonny + Sam)

Me, I can't believe that no-one has mentioned Kitchens of Distinction yet. No, scratch that, actually I can.

NickB (NickB), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 11:05 (nineteen years ago) link

Though wasn't there also a Shoegazer supergroups called the Lillies?

That's The Lollies, Kate - don't you remember anything? ;-)

Everyone's mentioned everything I remember from then, and some more, but this thread is most useful for my hopefully forthcoming shoegazeish night in Bethnal Green.

Ooh, what about Dr Phibes & The House Of Wax Equations? I'm sure I liked that album at one point. Anyone gonna burn me a copy of Gala then? Pretty please...

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 11:30 (nineteen years ago) link

We seem to have pretty much the same records held as shoegaze classics, so I'd add my other one: Ferment, the first LP by Catherine Wheel.

Going Blank Again

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 12:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Though I'm sure Ned will be here soon to "sort us out". ;-)

Dammit, you people have already covered things pretty well, what's left! Even Clairecords got a mention!

Though there's actually room to address some stuff that is gaze influenced that doesn't exactly follow the formula. Flowchart's Cumulus Mood Twang is one of the best things to follow in the wake of Loveless that captures, indeed, mood without simply trying to recreate. Meanwhile, the good Spencer Chow and Job de Wit pointed out to me a slew of recent techno efforts from Europe which also reflect that interest -- M83 was enjoyable enough, but I liked the Ulrich Strauss (I think that's his last name?) effort more. Good to see Rob mentioning the Charlottes -- when it comes to earlier bands, Closedown out here in California created a lovely album, Nearfield, that while very gaze/Cure influenced was remixed in studio to try and emphasize a more zoned out New Age approach at the behest of their label, Silent. So while flawed, it's still worth a listen.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 12:10 (nineteen years ago) link

There were so a Lillies. (Not sure about the spelling.) Miki Berenyi was in them, as was - I think - someone from MBV? They did a football song, that's all I remember. Something about David Seaman?

Someone else has GOT to remember this.

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 12:13 (nineteen years ago) link

there's a nice single "phonefreak honey" by Sweet Jesus, I don't know anything about them but it's good shoegazey (lite) pop.

Does early Seefeel count? I really liked the Ulrich Schnauss record from earlier this year, "A Strangely Isolated Place".

d.w., Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:11 (nineteen years ago) link

Ulrich Schnauss thirded, the above-mentioned album is quite lovely. And I've just remembered a funny little Japanese band called Sugar Plant who released a brilliant gazey album on, I think, World Domination Records a few years post-gaze apex but still...grand.

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:15 (nineteen years ago) link

Vindication! Yes!

(God, I am pathetic that I remember these sorts of things)

kate (kate), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:32 (nineteen years ago) link

That makes me as pathetic as you then Kate 'cos I remembered it, and I've yet to find a copy of the record either.

Rob M (Rob M), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:54 (nineteen years ago) link

I also remember a band called The Rosemarys who were kinda 90s-era shoegaze... Same goes for JPS Experience (a lot of the Flying Nun stuff would qualify). And my patriotic Canadian side is obliged to mention sianSPHERIC and southpacific...

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:54 (nineteen years ago) link

Were Smashing Orange shoegazers? I have their "The Glass Bead Game" which is ok. But, a long time ago I saw an auction on eBay for an earlier album of theirs (not listed on AMG) that went for pretty big bucks. It was advertised as a shoegazer classic. Can't remember it's name.

dlp9001, Wednesday, 8 October 2003 13:56 (nineteen years ago) link

Toulouse's The Way The City Stretches is a bona-fide classic, even if it missed the shoegaze movement by a good 5 years. "Know Better" is stunning and always gets included on my shoegaze comps.

Another great band often overlooked is Half-String from Arizona. They put out several discs on IPR. A Fascination With Heights is the strongest in my book, with "Momentum" being my favorite amongst a strong set of songs.

Boston act the Curtain Society were on Bedazzled, their second disc Life Is Long Still is a bargain bin staple and worth the small change for the opener "Mouthwithout" ... perhaps one of my favorite opening riffs of a shoegaze song ever.

Another not mentioned is Alison's Dress (their comp was on Burnt Toast, "Torn is my fave).

I have a shoegaze CD-R I made for myself, if anyone wants a copy just drop me a note. Contains all the above and Ropers, All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors, An April March, Revolver, Belltower and others mentioned above.

zaxxon25 (zaxxon25), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 14:40 (nineteen years ago) link

Medicine again, and yes, that "Phonefreak Honey" single is great.

How 'bout the first two Straitjacket Fits records, if we're looking to Flying Nun type stuff? The first one especially is great...

M Specktor (M Specktor), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:12 (nineteen years ago) link

Another not mentioned is Alison's Dress

You mean Alison's Halo. Since we're out here, Love Spirals Downwards' second album is a 'gazing classic in my book, it's called Ardor.

The Secret Shine compilation CD should be out soon, you won't go wrong with that.

Sugar Plant's most shoegazing album is probably Trance/Mellow, somewhere close to Slowdive's Souvlaki. Their first two albums are more in the Galaxie 500 vein... After After Hours is classic.

fortunate hazel (f. hazel), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:40 (nineteen years ago) link

rosemarys! the first album is great. the second album is okay. the lyrics are dire. This was probably the case with most shoegaze bands though most of them had the presence of mind not to print the lyrics in the booklet. the keyboardist, matt, is in Charles Atlas with a member of piano magic.

double recommendation for Swervedriver's first album.

anthony kyle monday (akmonday), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:45 (nineteen years ago) link

The Drop Nineteens! Just for "Winona".

adaml (adaml), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:47 (nineteen years ago) link

I would like to big up Levitation some more if that's alright. Even When Your Eyes Are Open is just amazing.

I would also put in a small shout for Verve's early singles, Gravity Grave, She's a Superstar and All In the Mind. In fact, the whole of the Storm in Heaven album was the tail end of shoegazing-type music for me, and reminds me what a beautiful band they were before they went shit. Although they weren't really shoegazers per se, it fitted in with what I was listening to at the time.

ailsa (ailsa), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:51 (nineteen years ago) link

I don't think I'd call Levitation shoegazers.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:55 (nineteen years ago) link

Codeine's "Barely Real" is king of shoegazery, and pretty good. Or is it slowcore? Or sadcore? Or spacerock? Oh, whatever....

adaml (adaml), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:56 (nineteen years ago) link

"king of shoegazery"=kind of shoegazery

adaml (adaml), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 16:57 (nineteen years ago) link

I gotta represent SouthEastern Michigan here - there was somewhat of a shoegazer revival/resurgence here in the late 90's - it has died down for the most part but definitely had its moments.

Two of the bigger local labels were Mind Expansion Records & Burnt Hair Records- some of the local acts included Fuxa, Windy & Carl (who run a nice indie record shop in Dearborn - Stormy Records), Miss Bliss, Tomorrowland (more ambient/idm, but in the same local scene), His Name is Alive, Auburn Lull, & Transient Waves (outta Philly but w/ ties to the Michigan scene).

Other related stuff was coming out around the US as well from the likes of Darla Records & Kranky Records, and groups like Hopewell (members of Mercury Rev), Jessamine, Bowery Electric, etc, etc..

bona-fide classic, absolutely! i never tire of this wonderful record, which recreates dreamlike strolls in rainy cities like few others have done. their later garage-mod output is...interesting, but i never listen to it much. are half-string or curtain society anything like toulouse?

chomicat, Wednesday, 8 October 2003 17:55 (nineteen years ago) link

I don't think I'd call Levitation shoegazers.

I wouldn't have automatically thought of Levitation as shoegazers either, but someone else did upthread (I wouldn't describe them as also-rans either).

ailsa (ailsa), Wednesday, 8 October 2003 17:59 (nineteen years ago) link

Not 100% gaze, but very much classic and perhaps a little overlooked -

The second YT? It's just another SF tune, Down in Splendour, Andrew Brough was def the gaze end of the band.

Maresn3st, Friday, 11 February 2022 16:19 (eleven months ago) link

Ah OK cool; it's broken on my end.

Yeah definitely Swirlies too but they were always so focused, and to me this track has that zoned out feeling the bands I cited had the tendency to do, where it sounds like they're lost in the bliss of the chord changes and aren't guaranteed to snap out of it.

o shit the sheriff (NickB), Friday, 11 February 2022 21:50 (eleven months ago) link

Me too. Someone taped stuck a few of their songs on the end of bootleg tape of a Ride concert for me in the summer of 91. I then spent a few hopeless months going into record shops trying to find anything by them and repeatedly being asked "Don't you mean Smashing Pumpkins?" until I gave up. I eventually found an album of theirs in 1993 which had at least one of the tracks from that tape on it (Not Very Much To See), but mysteriously had a very different version of My Deranged Heart on it. Another year passed and then I finally tracked down another album that had the 'proper' version on it. I don't actually know which of those albums came out first and I assume the group had split up long before I actually finally managed to buy them.

Nasty, Brutish & Short, Friday, 11 February 2022 21:58 (eleven months ago) link

(A quick visit to discogs later) Weirdly it seems that both the albums I bought were released in 1991, but that the four songs originally taped for me were the A-sides and B-sides of two singles also released in 1991 (that also featured on the albums).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeSvPNFe6bg

Nasty, Brutish & Short, Friday, 11 February 2022 22:05 (eleven months ago) link

john peel used to play 'my deranged heart' and 'only complete in you'. they did actually survive until 1995-ish, they got signed to MCA in the big clamour for alt-rock bands and put out one last album that totally stiffed afaict. all their stuff is supercheap on the cogs now

It's fairly well known but I don't see it mentioned enough outside Rateyourmusic: The Angel Pool by The Autumns is really gorgeous, can't recommend it highly enough, and the singer is the opposite from 99% of vocalists in the genre.

The Autumns - The Angel Pool
Sianspheric - (first two albums)
Teenage Filmstars - Star

two great bands with mostly same lineup:
Polar - A Future History Of The frigid Polar Night
Polar - Lies Set By The Polar Mob
Con Dolore - This Sad Movie

Robert Adam Gilmour, Sunday, 22 January 2023 00:46 (two weeks ago) link

The third album This Sad Movie is particularly amazing.

Another vote for Alison's Halo - Eyedazzler

Robert Adam Gilmour, Sunday, 22 January 2023 00:53 (two weeks ago) link

Alison's Halo have been working on a kind of wrap EP for, well, years now (not a complaint, I think they're just fitting it among other things, pandemic, etc.). Backed it a while back and seems like it should be coming out this year.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 22 January 2023 01:06 (two weeks ago) link
