indie revival-a-rama

The first band I ever saw live, The House of Love, have just announced that they are re-forming. Great stuff - looks like we're on for a full scale late eighties indie-pop revival in 2005. Who's next? Cocteau Twins? Jesus and Mary Chain? Sugarcubes?

I saw Guy Chadwick play a solo show in Brighton in 98 and it was pretty ropey. Will be good to hear Terry Bickers playing again. Pop trivia - anyone remember a band called Belltower that he was in? They did a rather fine tune called 'Outshine the Sun' as I recall.

Belltower! I've been looking for 'Lost in Hollow' for years. As for the Cocteau Twins, I dare to dream...

MBV? The Primatives?

We know that it can be done properly (vis the Wedding Present) but you'd not be happy if it just became the indie version of this, would you?

I would like strangelove to reform, i would like to sing along I'm a freak with them.

In contrast to Powerful Pierre, I really enjoyed a solo gig Guy did the same year in Wolverhampton, and thought his solo LP of the time was much under-rated.

But if Rollo packs in those irritating Faithless records and reforms The Woodentops I'll be well happy. Have faith...'it will come'.
