The most obvious ones missed off are the Family Cat who were founded in 1989 when they had a single and LP on the Indie charts but in the 90s there were many more like Steamroller-a 7 minute plus blast of solid rock which is comparable to Hey Jude.The track was included on one of the Beechwood LPs and the Cat would go on to make 2 further albums.
Surely there's enough little known Indie from bands formed at the end of the 80s without going into Oasis or Blur.
So why call it Alternative 90s?
This is a comp which has had no thought behind it and is not worth a pig's ass
Part of the problem, though, stems from the sheer complexity of the 90s music scene. The term 'alternative' is so vague and encompasses so much, that to make a successful compilation needs a lot more thought than appears to have gone into this.
'Alternative' in 90s terms could mean anything from Grunge to Madchester, from Dreampop to Grebo, and from Britpop to the Britpop hangover acts of the very late 90s. And trying to represent them all on one album like this creates a bit of an awkward mish-mash that doesn't quite seem to work. Basically, this album isn't really sure what it's trying to be. Just when you think you're listening to a baggy Madchester retro soundtrack a la "Unbelievable", a unexpected bit of grunge or a Depeche Mode track from 1986 comes and slaps you in the face. Finally, you're thrown to the ground by Paul Weller and stabbed in the chest by Jamiroquai.
Basically, this album would work better if it was more focused. There is much to like on it - the Madchester tracks, and even dare I say it, the Wonderstuff, can all be very pleased with themselves. But, for all their greatness, I couldn't help wondering whether the world really needs another compilation of the same early 90s student drinking songs. What with the fantastic "Unbelievable" series released last year, the Madchester and Grebo genres are already excellently catered for (indeed, the makers of Alternative 90s seem to have scabbed most of the tracks from that very source - even the oddball Depeche Mode track).
What I really would like to have seen this album do is veer more towards early 90s grunge and dreampop.Read more ›
I can't understand people that give CD's bad ratings and complain about the track list when they can see full well before buying what songs are on the disk.
Makes no sense to me.
The range of songs on this compilation is superb and there are tunes by some bands that you just don't see or hear anything of these days.
All in all a superb compilation and a real blast from the past for TRUE Pop kids out there!

There was only a few tracks that I actually wanted off of this, the rest was pretty meh!****Published 5 months ago by Bex
Everyone remembers Blur, Pulp, Suade & Oasis but these are the groups who slipped through the Brit Pop net, still giving us great songs, but by bands that we soon forget.Published on 15 Mar. 2013 by Hitman Hatton
