Yeah I wholly agree on your point No 2 there. Gum were gushing about Viet Cong pre album release and now taking a (not so subtle) different stance. Hypocritical much? That said, I like the band, so i hope they figure out a way out of this small mess.

March 3, 2015 on Viet Cong Show Cancelled Because Of Offensive Band Name
WOmen? No...This band is not Women, does not sound like Women and does not have Pat Flegel. so no, they cant call themselves Women anymore. I like Viet Cong ( the band) but i can see why the name can be a problem. BUT, i take offense with this one statement in that Impose magazine article: ""Comprised of two ex-members of the band Women (also a pretty problematic name considering, none of the members were actually women)"" what kind of stupid reasoning is this???

Great song, should have dumped some of the other songs on Taiga and put this instead. Taiga was overproduced, in my opinion.

You guys failed to mention the new band of ex-Women Pat Flegel, Cindy Lee (which i think moves in the more weirder direction than Women).

"Early-’90s British shoegazers Swervedriver might not be as revered as contemporaries like My Bloody Valentine or Ride, but they did charged-up bleariness as well as almost anyone" I dont know, to me Swervedriver never was "shoegaze"

January 7, 2015 on Swervedriver – “Setting Sun”
I was gonna rant about the omission of Talk Talk and Bark Psychosis, but then i read his article...so thats ok ( its the writers personal favourites) Also, worth mentioning the eclectic Japanese post rock movement; they seem to have a distinctive sound

Speaking as a big Austra fan, i found Olympia to be lacking in memorable tunes. Their Habitat Ep was much better than Olympia.
