I saw them live a couple of times. The early EP's are great but then I moved on. I really like the track "Jack". The album ...XYZ has almost all you need.

I wound up grabbing all three already. Will make a nice playlist.

Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don't have any surface noise. I said, "Listen, mate, "life" has surface noise."

"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

This site is a good resource: http://www.dreampop.it/

He gets his lists from rateyourmusic.com, but it's a nice way to check out some new stuff and looks good, too.

Cool and thanks. A rather varied attitude to dream pop, so that's a definite plus.

Yeah, it's nice to not have a list full of 10 bands that sound exactly the same. For my part, I recommend those first couple of For Against records, if you haven't heard them. I put them more in post-punk territory, but they're pretty interesting.

Heard of them, never heard them. Will investigate.

They're a bit on the pop side of post-punk—the bands that wound up being New Wave stars, though these guys never did, and I don't think they wanted to. The real work to check out is their EP, In the Marshes.

I started with their compilation album Soundpool. It combines their first two EPs, if I'm not mistaken. Really great instrumental tunes.
