To my mind, STILL the most “under-appreciated” British rock band of the 1980’s. Worth more to me then all the Echo And The Bunnymens and Teardrop Explodes you can throw my way. One day people will get it.
Wikipedia says Spiderland was not widely recognized upon it’s initial release. That’s ridiculous. After the lackluster Tweez, Spiderland immediately looked like the visionary record of musical originality it still is.
