Dinosaur Pile Up

Doug Brod: “Essentially they are a three-piece that sounds like a poppier version of Nirvana. They’re very grunge but their music is very poppy, not a lot of angst. With the 20th anniversary of Nevermind this year, it just seems like the perfect opportunity for a band to come around and get that sound without sounding like Nickelback or a third generation, watered-down, grunge band that’s currently popular in the U.S.”

Listen: Dinosaur Pile Up’s “Mona Lisa”

Kevin Wicks founded's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
