@Zoonie Teenage Cool Kids and Parquet Courts (who share at least one member) both sound very Pavement / Sonic Youth. And from 21st century!
Finding newish bands that sound like the old bands I liked makes me feel up-to-date without having to actually evolve my taste. Comforting.
And now I must go and make the most of my micro.
Achievement unlocked: nodded at Gilbert & George as we passed one another on our respective Dalston walks
