What a great thread. The best music in the world !! No wrongs answers here.

Here’s my primer for 10, based on the initial concept:

Associates – No

Simple Minds – 30 Frames A Second

Mogwai – Remurdered

Twilight Sad – Drown So I Can Watch

Geneva – Nature’s Whore

Frightened Rabbit - Poke

Cocteau Twins – Those Eyes, That Mouth

A Mote Of Dust – Cracks In The Mirror

Arab Strap – The Sky Retirer

Glasvegas – Fuck You, It’s Over

With apologies to dktraustus, as we seem to have a high degree of crossover !! But I drafted this before seeing your 10 !!
