- Sleeper have a bit of sass, but lack swagger.
- Echobelly, whilst actually quite brilliant, are at the same time almost offensively inoffensive.
- Lush were the most disappointing of all, all too frequently descending into navel-gazing angst.
- Kenickie... well actually, I forgot about Kenickie.
All of which confirms something that I had hitherto only suspected; that Elastica were fucking great, and their self-titled debut is one of the very best records of the last twenty years.
