I love Shudder to Think. Craig Wedren's like Cornell, just unique as a vocalist.

As for Pavement, <3. I go back and forth between S&E and CRCR for favorite album. Though only an EP, I think that Watery, Domestic is the best thing that they ever did.

Also, see sig.

Yeah, I'm with you on Modest Mouse, who I think of as an '00s band. Same with Sleater-Kinney.

Well, Dischord doesn't really have a sound, but it will only record bands in the DC area. It documents the scene. But it's also a hardcore label.

re: Pavement - Best Indie / Garage Band of the 90's?


yeah I meant label of indie, of which I think of as a sound rather than independent music...

So while Fugazi is independent music, yada yada yada

I know what INDIE means to me god damn it!

And where is the love for Westing (by Musket and Sextant)?!?!?!?

One of Pavement's best songs... Box Elder

I knew what you meant. And I agree.

And Westing (by Musket and Sextant) is awesome.

I'd nominate Built to Spill as a best indie band of the 90s contender. In fact, I would take the 1-2-3 punch of There's Nothing Wrong With Love, Perfect From Now On and Keep It Like a Secret over any other band's top three 90s albums, even Pavement.

I'd go Superchunk's...

No Pocky For Kitty (1991)
On The Mouth (1993)
Foolish (1994)

and throw in that Mac and Laura started Merge
