    "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...

    It would be my all-time favorite track of the entire "shoegaze" movement not featured on an album called Loveless.

    But part of that is because I don't really think of early Verve as shoegaze. (Swervedriver neither.)

    agreed - why SY is on there (and an extra "other") instead of these 2 is just weird.

    i don't like verve
    their coachella set was a way too tame and soft for it to be shoegaze

    Early Verve shows were more psychadelic than shoegaze.

    My favorite current shoegaze act is Manual, who only does shoegaze on a part-time basis.

    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!

    Start with heaven or vegas then treasure then head over heals. This head over heals track is my fave. Then go on to four calendar cafe then the others.

    I just went back to these songs and they were the only ones that stood out to me. I only gave the album 2 listens before I posted that.

    Try "Heaven or Las Vegas". It's a bit more accessible than the Pink Opaque.
