Do you know some good shoegaze bands other than mbv and slowdive? I mean I like a few songs by lush, pale saints, ride etc. but I'm nowhere near as into them

eliminating the 5 you mentioned, here are some cool shoegaze stuff

  • alison’s halo - dozen cassette
  • drop nineteens - delaware
  • kitchens of distinction’s first album
  • kairon;IRSE! - ujubasajuba
  • asobi seksu - citrus

also technically not shoegaze but very shoegaze-y: spiritualized (ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space is a classic by them), galaxie 500 (today) and spacemen 3 (my fav of the bunch, revolution or heroin is a lesser known beast by them).

oh and JAMC’s psychocandy but you probably know that one.
