Within the realms of rave, breakbeat hardcore, breakbeat and oldskool jungle:

Altern-8
2 Bad Mice
Quadrophonia
The Awesome 3
Utah Saints
T99

And it has to be said, despite all their cornieness and cringeniess, 2 Unlimited often knew how to make a tune.

Interesting sounds of the early 90s AB - I especially liked the singles of Utah Saints.

As Britpop was breaking through in 1995, Gene seemed to be right up there as part of it. I don't know why, but they didn't seem to build on this, and faded as other artists went from strength to strength.

Steve Miller Band - 'The Joker' and 'Abracadabra' have become a bit annoying over the years, though I liked them at one time. I much prefer their other big hit in the UK, 'Rockn Me' (1976). And I love Boz Scaggs album 'Silk Degrees' from that same year. One of the defining albums of its time 8-)

Yeah...I admit that Steve Miller Band got played out.... My 2 faves are these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh_0oaJcMgY" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctUAQ5OvJYc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Not sure if they've been mentioned in this thread yet, but Galaxie 500. They're not completely unknown or anything, and their albums do get a fair amount of acclaim, but I feel like they deserve more recognition.

The Vaselines are vastly underrated...they really had a profound impact on Kurt Cobain....another would be the Cult......

I have to say it again. Cardiacs. I listen to Sing to God at least once a day at this point and it always makes me really sad that more people don't listen to it. It's that good.

KLL76 - I agree about Steely Dan.

Pasta - I agree about Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry.

Mark 72 - IIRC 'Rudebox' was not as well received as previous work, but I quite liked what I heard.

Rudebox is my total guilty pleasure :oops: It's definitely the Robbie album I''ve played the most over time. Indeed, The 80s is great with its funny lyrics, as is The 90s.

Lovelight, although a cover, is one of his best singles I think. Viva Life on Mars and Never Touch That Switch are too catchy its insane they weren't singles. They'd certainly have done the public more of a favour than Rudebox itself (which I used to love 'rapping' to back when haha).

Can't forgive the hidden track though other than in its terribleness though haha :lol:

I agree with all of that....

Here's a band I've been toting for awhile on here since I saw them at Hyde Park BST on 6/18... in fact, this is the same exact performance that really blew me away:

Just put robbie's rudebox back in the iPod. What a underrated album that was. "the '80s and The '90s" great retrospective tracks. Ole Rob doesn't hold back for the '90s track! http://youtu.be/jQ8zq7M-NGw" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
