difficult one, this. I listened to a lot of the same stuff at uni but some of the more obscure Scottish twee bands are a bit of a giveaway for a 1999 graduation.
Organ Donor (DJ Shadow) at every house party without fail.
no one listened to Mercury Rev between 2002 and 2015, so I’m going to go for a 2002 graudation.
The list was broadly in order, from 1997 (fresher) to 2003 (graduation).
Shearwater - Rook
Crocodiles - I wanna kill
Peter Broderick - I’m Not at Home
Parts and Labor - Gold We’re Digging
Yeasayer - 2080
Band of Horses - Funeral
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
It was still 99% bright eyes and the smiths though obviously
used to love that Parts and Labor song.
Dead on bud!
Endless indie nights at Po Na Na (Franz Ferdinand)
The first BSP album reminds me of uni, as does all post-rock (GY!BE, EITS, ASMZ)
I graduated in 1998 (Glasgow Uni).
yeah, fuck, the whole of Funeral actually
fucking hell I give up now.
Cooper Temple Clause
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
From vague memories of the bar jukebox:
Step On - Happy Mondays
What Time is Love - KLF
Enjoy The Silence - Depeche Mode
Groovy Train - The Farm
