NHT030: SLOWDIVE – Crazy For You

Hi,

Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT show.

Shoegazer was a slightly derogatory term used by the press to group together a series of bands from the UK in the early 90s. This was because the band members appeared more interested in looking at their shoes than at the crowd when playing live.

Whatever your opinion of that, SLOWDIVE moved away from the swirling guitar driven shoegazer genre into a much dreamier type of ambient pop.

I was really enjoying where they were going with their new sound and was so disappointed that they did not get a chance to develop it further.

Like many bands who we think finished prematurely, I wonder what could have been?

Please enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.

Cheers, Andrew Muecke
