UK phrase referring to the amount of generic guitar based bands. It is characterised by:
* complete lack of rhythmic invention
* weedy vocals
* utter self-absorption
* million of songs about nothing but how *weird* the world is
* having gone on about twenty five years too long.

Credit also goes to Andrew Harrison at Word Magazine for coining the term "landfill indie"
Friend: "Ahh who is playing glastonbury this year?"

Me: "Some Landfill indie bands!"

Friend: "Like who?"

Me: "Scouting for girls, the kooks, the ting tings bands like that"
