Listening Post

These guys remain one of the most underappreciated and yet influential bands ever to come out of Great Britain. They were the almost singular bridge between the dour alternative music of 80s England (The Smiths, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen) and the rise of Britpop and the indie-rave wave (Oasis, Blur, The Stone Roses, Jesus Jones). When you think about it, this band is basically the Faith No More of the UK.

Here's That Petrol Emotion, with Big Decision.

Is the lead singer as big a condescending ass as Mike Patton? (Not that I didn't love me some Faith no More... but Patton is a dick.)
