Sorry folks, but you really should have seen this one coming. I mean, I talk about Chicago bands pretty frequently. I even posted their Pailhead side project. So save the sneers. I get enough from my students as it is. I've been hearing (not necessarily listening) them from way back when Jourgensen preferred to be called Alain and in sang with a horrid faux-Brit accent. Since it was so ubiquitous it makes sense that I'd come to like it. And I'll make a prediction now. Sometime in the somewhat near future we will see a return of bands imitating the Wax Trax sound. This might send a shiver down the spine of some of you, but really, how many fakegaze bands do we really need?
