Re: The Nondescript Nineties? Not a bit of it!

One of the best bands from the '90's, for me that is, was Blur. I never liked Oasis, lol! I'm a massive Blur fan and have been for many years. I have seen them live myself on (now) two documented shows which themselves + the media said was historic. First being their headline spot at Glastonbury Festival 2009, on their first comeback with Graham that year/reunion and the 2nd being a 180 capacity venue in Wolverhampton, to which was a secret VIP show for charity back in 2015 being right at the front touching the band. Both amazing! I have all the albums, many rare and cool vinyls and box sets.

This is one of my favourite songs from Blur, sung by Graham Coxon and which was released on their 1999 album "13".

You don't hear this track an awful lot these days.. pity, I love it!
Almost a kind of Elvis Costello vibe to it..

Caught this instrumental by 808 State in part two of a YouTube history of the Mini Moog
(see the Gary Numan topic). "Nimbus" is on the flip of their 1992 single "Time Bomb":

This is "Cop Shoot Cop", the epic closing track to Spiritualized's must-hear 1997 album Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. The flow is interrupted by two violent instrumental outbursts. A third outburst rages for minutes on end. Curiously it included a two-fingered piano rendition of (of all things) "God Save The Queen", played if the liner notes are to be believed by Dr. John. I can just imagine him asking Spiritualized mastermind Jason Pierce what he should do during the extended freakout and Pierce saying, "Play any fucking thing. Play the fucking national anthem for all I care." So he did.

My friend across the road has been initiating me into the mysterious world of videogame soundtracks. The quality varies but most of the ones she's linked for me have sounded from fair to excellent. Most soundtracks are looped sections of a few minutes each. This one's unusual in that it's a single 24-minute piece. From 1994, this is "Dancing Mad" from the Final Fantasy VI Super Nintendo videogame (said he, sounding like an expert already, hahaha):

This is not from the '90s, it's actually from 2007/8, but if you like video game soundtracks this is brilliant! I'm a big fan of this game and I'm a main substantial member on the forum for it.

The soundtrack for this section of the game is brilliant! Cool

Great song, great band (I knew the lead guitar player who joined them back in 2005/6) and awesome video with the minis! Very Happy

Manic Street Preachers were on Jools last night singing "International Blue" and this one from 1996, "A Design For Life". Excellent stuff.

Saw The Breeders on Jools last night. I'm not familiar with their music at all, so from 1993, this is their big hit, "Cannonball" (they revisited it last night after 25 years):

My brother has two tickets to see The Breeders in July with his mate in Birmingham. The lead singer was the original bass player from The Pixies, they're a good band.

I don't remember how I found this album but I'm so glad I did. Long live shoegaze!

In 1993 Björk gave us one of the finest solo debut albums ever:

I've only heard good reviews about that album throughout the years. I must give it a listen soon!

From 1990, these are The Pet Shop Boys and "My October Symphony". With thanks for the heads up to Ian Cockburn at PSF, who investigated literature relating to Shostakovich on the strength of this album track:

In the midst of reorganizing the ground line set-up after a change of provider, I found myself wondering how many people have used the hook from this De La Soul ditty for their answerphone message...
