"Shoegazer Band?" Help me out with this...
Would that be like standing there swaying back and forth,trancelike, while trippin' on your feet with eyes half closed type music? Explain, please...
Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
oh and the answer is clearly Slowdive.
Spanish Air is where its at.
My favorite current shoegaze act is Manual, who only does shoegaze on a part-time basis.
For your health
Asobi Seksu, Lush, Ride, Cocteau Twins

my favorite is RIDE. I hope Andy & Mark get back together now Oasis is on a long break.. But last weekend I went to "Clean Air Clean Stars" 3rd annual 3 day music fest and it was amazing. Shoegaze/psychedelic/drone up in Pioneertown (old western town) which is about 40 miles from Coachella up in the high desert. A must for Shoegaze heads. Great line up with bands like ASTERIOD #4 - THE MORNING AFTER GIRLS - SKY PARADE- THE UPSIDEDOWN- LOWER HEAVEN etc. much smaller then Coachella but fucking amazing!
Love me some ride ! My friend and I have been talking about how great it would be to see them play Coachella some day but in the meantime here's another band omitted from the poll
