    :heart:

    I would also suggest James. I love them muchly.

    Oh, and (although thinking about it, maybe not the right genre, but they still are much good) my mum re-bought Kula Shaker's album (fook knows if I remember what it's called) the other day. That's pretty good.

    It's either "K" or "Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts" - I have them both.

    Have you tried Shed Seven, not as good as the others you mention... presume that you've also tried The Verve, Charlatans?

    Would definately recommend Pulp, early Manics and Ocean Colour Scene...

    Cast, Sleeper, Garbage and Supergrass.

    Definitely check out Pulp (His 'n' Hers, Different Class, This Is Hardcare), Ash (1977), Ocean Colour Scene (Moseley Shoals, Marchin' Already) and the Bluetones (Expecting to Fly) - All excellent albums.

    early stereophonics without a doubt.

    the albums word gets around and performance and cocktails are the best.

    on a Welsh theme the Manic Street Preachers are worth a listen also.

    Anyway.

    90s UK brit-pop:

    The Divine Comedy
    Kula Shaker
    Primal Scream
    Gomez
    Radiohead (The Bends in particular)
    Manic Street Preachers
    Ash (esp Trailer and 1977)
    Space (Spiders is vasty underrated)
    The Verve
    The Charlatans
    Idlewild
    James
    Crowded House

    If neo classical metal is your thing, then Symphony X are gods.
