The 1994 album Tatoonie by Blind Mr. Jones features several shoegaze touchtones but deeper listens reveal nods to power pop and Britpop
Next week will be hosting our roundtable discussion on shoegaze, so to get in the mood, this week we’re tackling one of the lesser known entries in the genre - the 1994 album Tatoonie by Blind Mr. Jones. Many of the things you come to expect from a shoegaze band are present - etheral vocals and guitars that switch from chorus clean to distorted chaos in an instant. As we dug deeper, we discovered some nods to power pop and early Britpop that make this album more intriguing that expected, but with a few issues to overcome.
