- Pretty tough late 90s Madchester indie music question
I was in a shop a couple of days ago and really liked a tune they had on. The chap behind the counter told me who, and it was an indie band from Manchester I think. he said it was from the same time as The Charlatans, and I got into a conversation saying I saw them live a few times.
Anyway, I had not heard of this band, it wasnt anyone as big as Stone Roses or Happy Mondays. They only had 2 albums, and their name was a single word, a simple everyday word I am sure beginning with S. Something like Sound. But I am not too sure, and I can't really google sound as it is too common a word.
The tune had a lot of violin in it, and was quite ravey.
Can any back-in-the-day people help with this? It is a bit obscure sorry!Posted 8 years agoyunkiMember
it would have been late 80's not 90s surely? Madchester was over by the beginning of the 90s..
errr…. and you're ringing a little bell of recognition in my head somewhere… Unfortunately.. I was a bit too 'mad for it' around that time and have big chunks of swirling incomprehension and memory loss regarding that whole era..
If I get a flashback I'll let you know..Posted 8 years agosimonralli2Member
Right sorry folks, I did of course mean late 80s!
I think Source sounds like the closest. I know obviously you had "The Source" but this band had just a single word name. Can anyone tell me any of the Source's albums so I can have a look on Youtube? It's impossible to search just using that single name.
This was a band I had never heard of, but thanks for all the suggestions. Really appreciate the help.Posted 8 years ago
