Ahh, the Noughties. Remember? Before the coalition. Before Miley’s naked wrecking ball swinging. Before Snapchat. Back when impending financial gloom was not “the recession” but merely “the credit crunch”. No wonder many people are nostalgic about the 2000s. There were some pretty decent indie bands kicking about back then, too. Not just Arctic Monkeys, Foals, the Cribs and other indie mainstays who’ve continued to ride high but some bands that time has sadly since forgotten. Here’s a playlist of some of them to nudge your memory. Let us know which ones you think have and haven’t stood the test of time below. Enjoy!
