MBV is its own beast though.
Yeah, I wouldn't want my eariler comments in the thread to be misinterpeted. I don't consider that era of MBV as rip-offs, or overly derivitaive.. just that there were obvious touchstones, so it suprises me that Corgan would have found them to be one of the most unique bands he had ever heard at that point in their exsistance.. I think of Loveless in those terms though
That makes sense. I still think he'd be best served keeping an ear and an open-mind in regards to new muisc.
