In ’86, the British magazine NME released a cassette tape titled the “C86″ which has been remembered as the starting point of this new genre, and featured bands such as The Pastels and The Wedding Present. But like many other nerdy-shoe gazer revivalists, “Pains of Being Pure at Heart” don’t seem to be descendants of that same family tree.
Instead, this New York band formed in 2007 instinctively mention Nirvana and Bikini Kill as their ultimate references, rather than citing the British connection. Same thing for other NY combos like Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts… Come on guys, anyone in the Big Apple down with producing a C09?
