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.
