Best 3-piece band?


#1

Inspired by someone in that Nirvana/pumpkins thread who reckons it's Nirvana.

It's clearly Sleater-Kinney for me, but I could entertain a vote for the Minutemen.


#2

hmm. mclusky?


#3

Emeralds


#4

Wolfmother


#5

I have a feeling it is Hüsker Dü


#6

good shout

just remembered Dinosaur Jr too - that era seems particularly strong for guitar+bass+drums


#7

Saw Vieux Farka Toure a few years back at a festival and he had an absolutely storming power trio, was like watching Hendrix or something (I imagine)


#8

I need to think about this longer, but I just want to throw METZ into the running.


#9

#10

It's either Muse or The Police, I can't decide.


#11

The Beatles


#12

Sleater-Kinney is a good shout. My fav three-piece record is Autolux's Future Perfect.


#13

Great shout.


#14

Ash or the thermals.


#15

Modest Mouse before they became a 5,000 piece band.

Long Drive, Lonesome Crowded West, Building Nothing Out Of Something, Moon & Antartica.

Cmon


#16

Low


#17

Lot of comedy/indie point answers in this thread, like Sleater-Kinney. It's Nirvana,guys
EOT


#18

Manics.


#19

Carter USM circa 1994-1996.

Isn't it kinda impossible to compare, say, Low and FOTL?
