What Kind Of Indie Are You?

I just did the what kind of indie person are you quiz, and it reckons that I'm a "New York Trendsetter".

You're a New York City Trendster. All of the bands
you like are from New York or sound like it.
You're probably the least indie, but still
pretty cool. I mean, despite our backlash, we
love these bands too. And yes, Julian
Casablancas is hot.


You Know Yer Indie. Let's Sub-Categorize.

Which is rather odd, as most of my favourite music has come from the UK* (either that or local bands), and I've never been to New York. I guess it was the Interpol pin thing (well, I have one on the back of my bag); I changed it and it now thinks I'm Generally Indie. *shrug*

* not that that would make me eligible for the cringe-inducing "Britpopper" category. I concur with Mogwai that "Blur are shite", and think that Oasis are even more so. The only band of the cocaine-fuelled major-label marketing campaign that was Britpop I can think of that I actually like would be Pulp.
Current Music:
Pulp - Mis-shapes

I'd probably have been one of those some years ago, what with my Doc Martens and black jeans and penchant for Joy Division and 4AD and such. (Just don't call me a g*th.) These days I'd be more into indie-pop and/or angular arty stuff like Stereolab, Ninetynine, Minimum Chips, &c. Which reminds me: I should probably get deeply into krautrock one of these days.

I suspect the quiz is rather US-centric; i.e., to get "indie pop kid", one has to be into US twee labels like Elephant 6/Kindercore, not stuff like C86, Sarah Records, Spearmint, &c.

Hmm. I liked Pitchfork's take on Different Class in that Best Albums of the 90s thing (ahh, here - it turns out I've got a fair few of these...) where it was said that the correct answer to the "Blur or Oasis?" question was "Pulp". And I was thinking that in 1996.

"goatfucker"? I don't think that was one of the options.

Though they did have "post-punk".
