I’ve completely fallen down on my self-appointed job of finding hidden gems on MySpace. I guess I need to be more diligent in bookmarking my travels across the MySpace musicsphere. Anyhow, here is Chicago’s Plane (MySpace). Their list of “influences” includes the usual suspects like “Joy Division, Guided by Voices, The Cure, XTC, Stone Roses, Echo and the Bunnymen, et al.” Actually, given their list of influences I expected to like them a bit more than I actually do. Regardless, there’s a definite “chicago” sound about them that reminds me of The Aluminum Group. My ears are weird.
