Sharing musics from the modern era, the forgotten past and everything in between. We talk and listen to artist overviews, genre histories and our weirdo favorites.
This month on Philosophy of the World, episode 29 is all about the "scene that celebrates itself." Shoegazing was a relatively short-lived subgenre emerging from the confluence of punk, post-punk, space rock and dream pop in the late 1980's and early 1990's in the UK. We start by listening to some "proto-shoegaze" including the noise pop of The Jesus and Mary Chain, the wall-of-guitars space rock of Loop and ethereal dream pop of Cocteau Twins. We then focus on the initial wave of shoegaze bands up to about 1993. Not only do we listen to the "big three" including My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Slowdive, but we also spin some of the lesser appreciated groups such as the harder-edged Catherine Wheel, industrial gothisms of Curve, and the hypnotic pop of Pale Saints. Enjoy this primer on a subgenre that, while brief, continues to influence underground music today.
