Apollos, I agree with your opening statement 100%. The 80's produced consistenly good music (much of it in the charts). 89 - 95 was a golden age for indie ('91 being my fave).

But as you said, after '95 it just collapsed.

I attribute this to the media (NME being the main culprit) for band assassination and also the labels for axing bands that didn't line their pockets consistently.

I don't know about you but it seems 95% of good music these days comes from outside Britain. I'm particularly fond of electroclash now - with Ladytron being the only UK act (and they're only part British).

p2p is much needed now. There's no point popping down to HMV.
