Never Lose That Feeling Volume One CD

London shoegaze and post-rock night Club AC30 came up with the idea of asking comtemporary artists to cover shoegazing classics. The response was enthusiastic, with some 60 artists confirming - this is Volume 1, the first sixteen. The term "shoegazing", coined by the NME in the late 80's, to define a genre of noisy guitar bands that came in the wake of grunge - bands such as Slowdive, Lush, Ride and Chapterhouse - the sound was layers of feedback drenched guitars over strong melodies, influenced mainly by Velvet Underground, Jesus & Mary Chain, Cocteau Twins and Spacemen 3. The genre has come to encompass a great many more bands - Catherine Wheel, The Telescopes, Pale Saints, Curve, Spiritualized, Swervedriver, and often bands like House Of Love and My Bloody Valentine are all considered, rightly or wrongly, to be shoegazers. The influence is obvious in so many contemporary bands. Never Lose That Feeling!
