One of the most popular indie rock bands of the early 90's. It's really hard to describe their sound if you haven't heard it -- there are bits of the Smiths in them, Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, even Led Zeppelin -- but those elements are seamlessly forged into a new alloy. Trippy? Yes, but in a smart way, not sloppy.
