  • Adorable from Coventry (UK) released the first of their two great albums Against Perfection in 1993, right in the moment between the end of the Shoegaze hysteria and the beginning of the Britpop era. The heavy instrumentation and the impressive voice of lead singer Pete Fijalkowski testifies to a musical urge for perfection in every respect.

    While the bittersweet Sunshine Smile Adorables shows skilful crossover between Shoegaze and Britpop, Glorious Chorus-like guitar hooks provide the unexpected tension effect. Created before Adorable was founded, Homeboy is reminiscent of good old friends like The House Of Love or Drop Nineteens and uses a classic Quiet-Loud pattern based on distorted guitars and big bass tones.

    Adorable released only two studio albums before they disbanded as a band. It was an impressive 5-year period during which they skilfully combined the dreamy world of Shoegaze with pop, but never gained the recognition they deserved.
