Hello, Rock & Pop. For this week, I'm doing another "album of the week" scenario. I want everyone to pick at least 3 choices for their "album of the week", and give some reasons as to why you chose those albums. Include links to your picks, as well. Additionally, here's a twist to this question: I want everyone to choose albums that, in some way, shape and form, owe something to The Velvet Underground. Here are my picks:
The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
The Fall - Hex Enduction Hour
BQ: The Velvet Underground are said to have been a massive influence on genres such as noise rock, alternative rock, indie rock & punk rock. What is your take on this?
BQ2: When it comes to the 1980s, as a whole, which year was the most important, for shaping alternative/indie music?
BQ3: Which of the following bands were the most important in the development of post-hardcore, for you: Husker Du, Fugazi, Refused, At the Drive-In or Unwound.
BQ4: How would you react, if My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive & Ride collaborated with The Cure & Cocteau Twins?
