    I should obviously check out Tacoma Radar. I have found so much good music from the g500 mailing list, but I follow so little of it up...

    Oh you must - I'm guessing they're not around anymore - the album took more than a year to finally hit the streets and I've not heard a peep since. There are a few short realaudio clips on the Andmoresound website and I just found this blog with a track to download (nice to know I'm not the only one still thinking of Tacoma Radar all these years after the album).

    I saw on Tacoma Radar on Emusic. It looks like they're available through IODA, so they're probably on other online stores as well - well, stateside at least. The Zephyrs are on eMusic as well and seem to be handled by a couple of different distributors. Yes, it's nice to track down the actual CD (or better still Vinyl) but digital is okay if you can't wait.

    Very good and accurate list grange, although im having difficulty finding anything by tacoma radar, are they worth tracking down a hardcopy of an album?

    You like the first Zephyrs album? The second and the third album are among my all time favourites, but i never listen to the first one.

    Great recommendations for Galaxie 500 fans! Gotta try and look out for Tacoma Radar. I love The Clientele and think the Zephyrs have made pretty consistent albums. Anybody else here heard Starflyer 59? Not quite Galaxie 500, but there are definite echoes in some of the stuff they've done. In particular, The Fashion Focus.

    Bedhead , the Clientele and the Zephyrs are my favourites.

    Nice list and I totally agree with you. Zephyrs were.are well underrated and spot on about Ballboy. I believe the Tacoma Radar album is still available, I got the vinyl ordered through my local shop here in Melbourne, and I'm sure it is in Glasgow at some record shops there. It seems to be via Emusic too.

    Incidentally, do you live in Scotland?

    Nope...born in London, live in London. Lots of Scottish music in my collection though (that's music by Scottish artists rather than [i]Scottish[/i] music!)

    Love, love, love Starflyer 59! Agree that the Fashion Focus is the best, but their last album isn't bad at all. The Bedhead/Galaxie 500 connection is kinda tenuous but I understand why you listed them (Bedhead is on my top 10 list of favorite mid 90s bands). Anyhoo, thx for the recs. I will hunt down this Tacoma Radar.

    I must also check these out, as haven't heard of any of them apart from the Zephyrs. Thanks.
