what about the Bedazzled bands?  I would say that Curtain Society, the new
An April March and older Viola Peacock (maybe even Ultracherry Violet)
would fit the bill of 'shoegazer'.

Actually, I've been listening to their self-titled album (their first?) a
lot over this past week, especially while at work, and I'm really
beginning to like it more and more.  To me, that album sounds a lot like
what I wished Lush would eventually turn into when I heard their first
_Scar_ EP.  Feedback-drenched noisy pop songs with layered female
vocals...sound like a description you've heard before?  And "Butterfly
Girl"...wow!  Twees are bweathing water indeed!

But I never bought the album after that, the one about the Cafe.  I heard
it was a lot less dreamy and not near as good, and it got shelved in my
mind.  I don't know if one album qualifies them as a shoegazer act.  But
then again, now that I think about it...most of those groups only put out
one album, before (a) getting dropped, (b) breaking up, or (c) going in a
different musical direction (usually the worst of all - see also:
Catherine Wheel, _Happy_Days_).

Subject: AMP (the MTV show)

              at Jan 2, 97 10:12:20 am

My VCR cut off the first few minutes of AMP last night, so I was
wondering if anyone knows what the first video was. (featured a Japanese
man and woman swimming underwater, as well as random swirly colors)

Of course, being the cynic that I am, I have to say that Amp seems to be
sliding downhill already. Do we really need to see Underworld and the
Chemical Bros. on every episode?? (Much as I like those videos) There are
so many more adventurous things they could be playing (Laika, surely
Seefeel have videos) Obviously, this betrays my own bias, but I thought
with a horrible timeslot like that, surely they're *tryng* to do
something different. Silly me, it's MTV. (though I was amused to see
M/A/R/R/S "Pump Up the Volume")

My top votes go to "Victorialand" and "Treasure" as well. "Heaven or Las
Vegas" and "Milk and Kisses" are also must-haves.
