    Our Lady Peace was big in PA, not sure about the rest of the world?
    This song Clumsy has some GREAT lyrics IMO.

    Enjoy

    they were?  i didn't think they were that big in PA (least in the philly area) since they were from Canada and all.  Only station that i kinda remembered playing them was y100 and that wasn't too much.  Maybe live they had a following in PA?
    In western PA they played these guys on the radio  A LOT, lol.  Not sure why?
    kinda weird i guess, oh well.

    I used to really like Mansun. Their first album, Attack Of The Grey Lantern, was a great record.
    I always remember their singles being pretty cool. They were all EPs (titled One EP, Two EP etc) and always had a bunch of non-album tracks.




    only song i know from them is the skin up pin up song they did with 808 State for the Spawn soundtrack

    A band out of Cornwall made a cool record back in 1993 called Beautiful Debris.  Here's a fine cut from that album:

    Not too obscure in the UK, but never really got the kudos they deserved. Singer Ginger is a prolific songwriter and releases at least one album a year. This was their biggest hit.

    Never heard that song at all. Only album that got any play in Australia was Doubt. I knew of "International Bright Young Thing" which was another single of Doubt, but after that they completely disappeared from Australian airwaves.

    I loved that record when it came out. I remember the look on my mum’s face when I asked for an album called “p.h.u.q” :)

    You should check out their debut album, Liquidizer.  The sound is definitely dated but it's good stuff.  Catchy tunes and great songwriting.  Doubt was ok but I felt a lot of it wasn't nearly as good as their debut and third albums.  Liquidizer is the shit, Doubt is kinda meh, Perverse is extremely good.  Already was kinda like Doubt, a couple good singles but mostly blah.  I've never listened to London.  New album Passages is due out this spring.

    The Odds
    Pretty popular in Canada but no so much in the states and elsewhere. Came across a clip of them from Beavis and Butthead ehich i remembered. Other songs sounded pretty good

    I didn't like The Odds until I heard Wendy Under the Stars off their first album. It still reminds me of being a punk kid in Calgary in the 90's and discovering that not all other music was terrible :)

    Thanks for posting!  I haven't hears Anna is a Speedfreak in AGES!
    I saw Rusty in 1995 at Red Deer College - it still is one of the most remembered shows I've been too.  It may be nostalgia but I remember it being super energetic and fun.  Wonder what ever happened to both those bands.

    I really dug Jesus Jones back in the day.  Had Liquidizer on freakin cassette before Doubt was released. The Devil You Know is one of the greatest songs they ever wrote, imo.  It's amazing when you go back and listen to them now, the music can be a bit dated but Mike Edwards wrote some really sublime lyrics that hold the test of time. Perverse was my favorite album of theirs, and one of the first CD's I ever owned.

    The albums Woman’s Gotta Have It and Handcream for a Generation by Cornershop are both absolutely fantastic.  I revisit both frequently.

    Black 47 "Funky Céilí" Though, i think there still around?
    Black 47 was big in NYC/NJ. I saw them a couple times n the early 90's in Manhattan and at an Irish Festival on Sandy Hook. (a NJ beach) in the late 90's

    I have their first album, Fire of Freedom - 1996. I was really into them.  Met them all after their performance on Sandy Hook and they were all really cool guys - we got them beers during the show. I don't know if they were big outside of NY metro and Ireland, but they sold out the NYC clubs.

    They played their last show in 2014. 

    My fave song -
