What happened in the 90s?

Right then,

 

I am as many know a 70s obssessed nutter.

 

However it came to me via various channels that music woke up after an 80s hiatus. Rave music started up, those TR808s started to become cool things to have. The Propellerheads in Sweden developed a software version of the 808, spawning a huge subculture.

 

Here are some of the artists of the era I loved. Help me find similar....

The 90s also gave us the Lighthouse Family, which in my mind perfectly justifies destroying the decade with grenades.

Only if you're into 70s throwbacks with a penchant for endless guitar solos. ;)

 

One band who straddled the decade and didn't make it out (splitting up at the end of 1999) were the mighty Pavement...

And one more, then I'm off to work. At the Drive In! These guys broke up, and formed two great bands, Sparta and The Mars Volta. The latter competing with Tool for my top spot. :)

I shudder at you even mentioning the holy ATDI in even the forum as "Tool" (nomen is omen) [1] but they were gods. First time I saw them there were about 30 people there. The next time they came to town I couldnt get in and there were more people on the pavement outside than in the club.

 

[1] Actually I quite like Tool but never understood the fanatiscism they seem to engender
