a first post...
to start the ball rolling there's a nod to The Pastels (again) from their album Illumination.
The Pastels - Leaving This Island
next is another 'godfather of indie' band with Orange Juice's Rip It Up - a song dating back to 1983 which clearly had an influence on all the good indie bands that walked into the path they blazed.
Orange Juice - Rip It Up
Last but not least it's a more recent band, this one coming off their 2001 album Surely Tomorrow You'll Feel Blue which is an absolute scorcher of an album. Their new album should be out in the first quarter of 2005 according to their website
The Starlets - Arcadia Square
