Despite all of Weetabix's lucrative offers.

That would at least add one merit-worthy stamp to an otherwise totally useless career.

Mogwai - have managed a pretty credible 25 years without any cancellable behaviour, surely?

Aww, I love Lydon, warts an all.

Sidney?  He would've probably become a go-to celebrity for reality shows and been a featured artist on a Gorillaz album.

Not an especially well-known band, I guess, but a great one - Sloan from Nova Scotia, Canada. Together for almost thirty years now, same four members all of whom share the singing and songwriting, signed to DGC during the grunge gold rush but refused to capitalize on it to their commercial detriment, and from all accounts a really swell bunch of guys.

If you like guitar pop, they're unimpeachable - all their albums are high-quality, but their second and third releases, Twice Removed and One Chord to Another are damn near perfect. First tracks from each:

Sloan!  Jesus what a top band!   Yes everyone needs to get a load of them if they haven’t already, including one of my all time tip top favourite songs of all time:

Underwhelmed
