‘Olympic Swimmers have gone from strength to strength... this is indie - indie at its best, indie like they used to make it, before it became the stomping ground of yobs and cartoon degenerates. This is what the alternative scene was like in the days before Britpop, when it was all waif-like females with soaring voices fronting bands whose object lesson it was to recreate the ambience of an echoey church or, to employ the parlance of the day, a sonic cathedral.' The Guardian
