The Charlies stint at Beggars Banquet

Advantages: Thoughtful lyrics
Disadvantages: The quality of the tunes is mixed.

Songs From the Other Side Ah, the Charlies. They're mostly famous for just being Britpop survivors and for that last "let's get sexxy" LP, Wonderland, which I didn't exactly do back flips for but was pretty great nonetheless. But there's a lot more to ...

Find the Way In!

Advantages: Good career overview
Disadvantages: Stifled by chronology

As the 80s dragged itself into the 90s, one ill-looking band ruled the insular indie roost: My Bloody Valentine, who had the utter misfortune to become the unfortunate forefathers and harbingers of the 'shoegazing' scene. The Boo Radleys, although never c ...

Advantages: It's that indie band who get all the radio play...

You Asked Me So Where Have You Been

Advantages: All Good tracks on their own
Disadvantages: A bit too mellow all as one album
