The Boo Radleys

Profile:
English alternative rock band founded in Wallasey, Merseyside, England in 1988 and disbanded in 1999.

Though the central cast of characters has been the same all along, it seems as if there's been three Boo Radleys. From nutty noise merchants to schizophrenic dreampoppers to classic pop thoroughbreds gone Top 40 in the UK, it's been a long and strange path to European stardom for this Liverpool group that has never managed to crack the US.

Members:
Rob Harrison: drums
Sice Rowbottom: vocals, guitar
Martin Carr: guitar, songwriting
Timothy Brown: bass .

Very underrated band in general. One of those where some of the b-sides were total gems (particularly in that 91-94 period when they were absolutely on fire). The price for having the temerity to craft a gigantic pop hit was to be forever tainted by it. They're well overdue a reappraisal, because their catalogue stands alongside the best indie bands of the 1990s. Martin Carr was (and still is) a hell of a talent. I saw them a few times over the decade, from right at the start in 1990, through to near the end, and they were never any good live, which was enormously frustrating. Had they managed to translate their studio sound live, they would have probably got their dues.

As a big MBV and "shoegaze" fan, I was an avid follower of The Boo Radleys from about 1990-1992.

During that time they produced a great run of EP's, culminating in the "Everything's Alright Forever" LP.

While very much indebted to MBV sonically, were probably the head of the shoegaze class in achieving some of the same effects, twinned with a lovely melodic sensibility which worked so well with the noisy guitars.

If you're into MBV or the "shoegaze" sound, strongly recommend you check out "Every Heaven" / "Boo Up" / "Adrenalin" / "Boo Forever" EP's, and their "Everything's Alright Forever" LP.
