U.K. Indie Dance
Tony Fletcher, Spin, December 1990
THE YEAR 1990 has been one of re-evaluation and subsequent rejuvenation for bands in Britain. Spurred on by the excitement of 1988's acid-house scene and 1989's raves (large all-night dance parties held in warehouses or fields), as well as the genuine creative potential of merging rock songs with a dance beat, groups that would once rather have given away their drum kits than step inside a nightclub have been queuing up for their shot at a crossover club hit. Indie rock is out; indie dance is in.
