Hayward then set about assembling a band, although Felt was clearly his project and his alone; in fact, his control was so absolute that according to legend, original drummer Tony Race was fired primarily because he had curly hair. After a series of roster shuffles, a steady group including guitarist Maurice Deebank and drummer Gary Ainge began to take shape in time to record 1981's Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty EP. The addition of the classically-trained Deebank allowed Hayward to realize a level of guitar interplay similar to the twin attack of Television's Verlaine and Richard Lloyd; Hayward's understated vocals brought comparison to another downtown New York icon, however -- Lou Reed.
After one more EP, 1984's The Splendour of Fear, Felt issued its long-awaited full-length LP The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories, in 1984. The group's ranks swelled to include keyboardist Martin Duffy prior to recording 1985's Ignite the Seven Cannons with producer Robin Guthrie, whose fellow Cocteau Twin Liz Fraserguested on the single "Primitive Painters," a major British indie chart hit. Despite their success, internal friction plagued the group -- Hayward and Ainge were once forced to mount an infamously disastrous two-man improvisational festival performance after Deebank and Duffy abruptly walked out -- and finally Deebank left for good prior to the release of 1986's Ballad of the Band EP, Felt's first effort for the Creation label.
In the wake of the guitarist's exit, the group's next album, 1986's Let the Snakes Crinkle Their Heads, became a brief instrumental outing, but its follow-up, Forever Breathes the Lonely Word, was acclaimed as Felt's masterpiece. Mayo Thompson produced 1987's Poem of the River EP, while Guthrie returned to man the spartan mini-album The Final Resting of the Ark. Two dramatically different LPs, The Pictorial Jackson Review and Train Above the City -- the latter of which did not even include Hayward -- followed in 1988, and upon issuing 1989's Me and a Monkey on the Moon, Felt announced its break-up. Hayward soon resurfaced in the 1970s revivalist project Denim.

It's cerebral anthemic rock. Occasionally, the album displays its influences, whether it's U2, Pink Floyd, R.E.M., or the Pixies.While Radiohead saw its stock rising in 1994, it wasn't until 1995's The Bends that it really became a blue chip band. And for good reason. The quintet honed its talent for bombastic Brit Rock, yet still preserved an edge of unpredictability.
The title of The Bends refers to decompression sickness, when deep-sea divers come up too quickly -- a comment on the band's sudden fame. The lyrics are filled with Yorke's unhappiness rendered as health metaphors: He makes himself a cripple who can't climb the stairs in "Bones," and with "My Iron Lung," he immobilizes himself even more completely and complains, "This is our new song/Just like the last one/A total waste of time."

A new indie band from Minnesota.First i listen their song named 'Vampire'
Nate Borgen(vocal) has adaptation with music,guitars are good and enough to say it's indie sound.Why i'm saying this?Because you can't say 'indie music is evident with its sound' so it's indie and relieved.Their music is relieved too.They're playing good and there isn't disorder.Their influences are Wilco, early U2, Interpol, Primal Scream, The Walkmen, My Bloody Valentine, The Verve but i can't say they have similar ways with these bands.I think they only love these bands.Ok,maybe there are some similarities but it isn't unusual.Mostly,i compared they with the walkmen.
And i think they are trying to do their own music.
you can listen and download some of their songs from this page.Modern music recommends their song named 'Missed Me' and 'too far to go'.'too far to go' is really worth to listen.Now let's discover them.

I'm listening I Dont Know What Im Doing a 2003 album by Brad Sucks.And i really love to give credits this bands. Brad Sucks is a one-man band who writes, records, mixes and distributes his music from his home in Ottawa, Canada.I'm taking mails for reviewing but i don't write any info about a band or artist which i don't like.
My first recommendation will be 'Work Out Fine' from this album.Strangely,it's the last song.Starting with slow vocals and leaving the music to placid guitar solos.
'Look And Feel Years Younger' is combining slow vocals with sharp guitar sounds.And again you'll hear an indie style guitar solo near the end of song.I think it is wanderful and it is not simple at all.Shining and rising at your ear with listening more then one.'Fixing My Brain' is another song same sound with 'Work Out Fine'.But there is anything different in this song.There is little happiness beyond this song.
'Bad Attraction' is a rhythmic song.''Yeah yeah'',''Satisfaction yeah ,Bad Attraction yeah',and suddenly music changes you're noticing great vocal performance with guitar creaks,Guitar solos are really awesome,it's the best song of this album.
'I Think I Started A Trend' has a taste like alternative country songs.I think you won't find an unique style in this album (indie rock,indie electronic,lo fi,indie pop).There are lots of styles which are strolling around indie mainly.You can listen whole album from here.
I'm really love to listen experimental musics.this
Style is an opportunity for a brain travel.You don't tire
and you don't walk but when you're listening an experimental music
it's experimental rock or experimental doesn't matter,but if it has
indie influences so then there is only thing to say it's delicious.
The Starry tides is an experimental/Indie/Folk band from San Francisco Their sound between some 'pavement' influences and some 'Sonic youth' and let's mix some peaceful sound of 'The blue nile'.
They incfluence list contains a lot of great name like the Minutemen,
Stars,Braniac,Brian eno,Nick drake,Jeff buckley,Big star....
And their music is quite similar with mogwai if you know them.

if you're interested in britpop bands from 90's
There are such great songs like Female Of The Species
Kill Me,Neighbourhood and a sorrowful song named
spiders.The album and band shows there were better
bands in 90s than now.They haven't got lots of album
but they've great two album.So it's not a good thing to
release one album every year .
They make me boring after album and album.Because always
the same commercial sound or same simple lyrics.
So then listen Space,i'm sure you'll like.Buy Spiders

Oh my god! tell me a song that you'll say this words when you are listening...
You don't know a song like that?Then Modern Music Picks songs for you.This weekend we'll talk about an amazing long song.'Breaking into Heaven' you can find this song Second Coming album by Stone Roses.The song lenght is 11:22.Starting with jungle effects.To the end of the song you won't believe that you listened a song.The song looks like a full album.Also you can find other great songs in this album but i think the best is 'Breaking into Heaven'.with rising and falling guitar solos.'Breaking into Heaven' is a great choice for a sunday day.buy this song
The prog-rocker’s seminal track came out top of a new Radio Two vote with 23-per-cent, easily beating Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah’ (17-per-cent) and The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows (16-per-cent).
The Floyd’s David Gilmour gushes, "It's fantastic. What can I say except be thrilled. It's a good combination of great music and great lyrics. It's music for people who have a brain as well as a soul, I think.
"The theme that Roger (Waters) tackles so well with his words are universal and they are just as relevant today as they were 33 years ago when it first came out."
Surprisingly, John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ failed miserably, alongside REM’s ‘Everybody Hurts’.
Radio Two’s Jeremy Vine explains, "Dark Side of the Moon won hands down. People just love it. For its mammoth sense of scale and all the invention, it's still wonderful."
