Stone Roses for me is the class of that year, I loved that record insanely and all of the assorted non-album tracks they'd been releasing from-87 onward and I still do. I distinctly remember at that time being more drawn to The Stone Roses and The La's (though that's later) than anything American that more overtly resembled the spawn of my beloved REM/Replacements/Husker Du.

I still feel that way really, that the songs of the Stone Roses and The La's resonated more to me than the "sound" of Dinosaur Jr./The Pixies and eventually Nirvana.

It's that weird feeling of thinking you already had a band that did "this" better in your lifetime and not wanting more of it. But also, in a way starting to be close-minded - something about the Stone Roses felt more comfortable and relatable to me than whatever The Pixies were screaming their heads off about in the late 80s.

That's probably the first time, musically where I started to turn into my grandfather.......
