    BAs are my all time favourite cult band and one of the best live bands ever. They are still going intermittently, it's been a while since the last album "Welcome Stranger" (which is very good) there is supposed to be a new album "soon" but it's been "soon" for a long time now! See
    "Beatsongs" is at least as good as "Swagger".

    Beatsongs is one of my favourite albums by any artist. The deluxe versions are worth tracking down if you can find them. Some of the tracks left off albums (such as Misfiring) were belters.

    I well remember seeing them at Glastonbury in 1992. They were great and the chiming guitars sounded just fantastic outdoors. On Aeroplane Blues especially so.

    Off the top of my head (on top of those already mentioned...)

    Teenage Fanclub - Songs From Northern Britain
    Sugar - Copper Blue
    Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants
    Pavement - Crooked Rain
    Lemonheads - Shame About Ray
    Mazzy Star - So Tonight
    Faith No More - Angel Dust
    Beastie Boys - Ill Communication
    Slowdive - Souvlaki
    Mega City Four - Sebastopol Road

    Oh, and I'd take The Bends over OK Computer any day as a quintessential 90s album. For a few years it seemed to be played everywhere.

    Depeche Mode - Violator - best synth album of all time.
    Radiohead - OK computer.
    Natalie Merchant - Tigerlilly - her best solo effort
    Weller - Wild Wood - his best solo effort
    Verve - Urban Hymns - enjoyed this at the time
    Kula Shaker K - enjoyed this at the time
    Green Day - Dookie - if I had to pick a 90s post punk I think this beats Californication.
    Black Crowes - Southern Harmony & Amorica - two classics .
    U2 Achtung Baby - great reinvention album

    Probably others, but got to get back to work.
