    (indie) rock music of 1994 mix

    the summer of 94 was the year i discovered modern music. up until that point, i had been a classical thunder type of kid. summer camp was fun, and i spent my days playing in the woods, building forts, defeating opponents at tennis, and drawing camouflage/neon/camouflage and neon dinosaurs. i didn't take the time to write down the songs that were the soundtrack of that summer, and i am trying to piece together songs that i should include in my 94 mix.

    so far:
    meat puppets - backwater
    collective soul - shine
    alice in chains - no excuses
    stone temple pilots - vasoline
    soundgarden - black hole sun
    live - i alone
    breeders - cannonball
    smashing pumpkins - disarm
    dinosaur jr - feel the pain
    nirvana - tbd
    pearl jam - tbd

    i am iffy on crash test dummies mmmx4 and cranberries.

    unfortunately, i was just able to get these figured out by looking at the music charts from 94. i am sure that i am glossing over some of the lesser known music of that year. any suggestions? no candlebox or gin blossoms please.

    Oi, that's a sad list for 1994. There were some great sounds out that year, but you appear to have been stuck in a cul de sac of dreary American grunge.

    beck - loser
    blur - girls & boys
    echobelly - i can't imagine the world without me
    frank black - (i want to live on an) abstract plain
    guided by voices - tractor r.ape chain
    lilys - ginger
    lush - hypocrite
    morrissey - i am hated for loving
    pavement - cut your hair
    portishead - sour times
    stereolab - ping pong
    wedding present - yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    (It's worth checking out the albums these tracks are found on, too).
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

    +1 on the Breeders. I'm still kind of like a schoolboy when it comes to anything Kim Deal related. Pixies, Breeders, Amps...

    Offspring and Green Day may have still been indie-ish then. Buffalo Tom?

    I've probably heard this song more than any other. Spent a LOT of time in strip joints in the 90s.
