I found this rather interesting as I too grew up on indie rock and
I am curious how many others on this list are the same. I still listen to it
as well as the music discussed here. I am currently reading the bio of
Creation Records (I collected them as a teenager) which documents a period
of time (1988-1990) when those who listened to 60s garage, punk, new wave
gravitated and opened their minds to dance music. Some would argue that it
was really just the ecstasy working, nonetheless I believe this was and is a
very important time in the development of genres of dance. Some of the acid
jazz purists would argue, "No man it was only blue note and r n b that got
me." Ok then you are cool.
What is so fabulous is that these folks in Britain for example, long known
for melodies, guitars, pop were fascinated by these American house records
and then interpreted them in their own way and helped launch probably the
most fruitful dance scene in the world.
Hey as much as I enjoy the records on Compost and other labels mentioned here
one of my favorite all time bands is the Tindersticks and the one man MOMUS.
