No, but you are correct that they are criminally underrated or unknown.I had my fingers crossed that they would mention Jellyfish. I need help because I think I am the only person on earth that mourns the fact that there are only two full length releases from Andy Sturmer and Jellyfish.
Agree, but the article could have gone on to talk about the continuation of power pop. Fountains of Wayne, Fastball, Marcy Playground...There were a few omissions from the time frame in question (Split Enz anyone?) but I think the article was meant to cover the emergence of the genre rather than provide an in-depth history. The Cars and The Producers were mentioned but those bands were active in the late 70's. Jellyfish was much later.
