curve are awesome, Missing Link was pretty much my favourite song of the early 90s... Sneaker Pimps maybe? Their first album though, they ditched their female singer for the second. Quite slick, maybe not what you're after. Slowdive are from the same era and pretty good. Going A bit More modern, have you heard Metric, or The Joy Formidable?
Curve - Dog Bone, just finished Dirty High.
My favourite band ever, the trouble is that since I discovered them three years ago I pretty much don't want to listen to anyone else because they're nowhere near as good. Anyone recommend some good grunge-dance-rock bands, preferably with a female singer? I really like Garbage too, but Curve are a lot less commercial, a lot more raw.
