Adorable - Sunshine Smile

Probably the best band of the mid '90s -- their song "Vendetta" inspired me to start a magazine of the same name and adopt the moniker Ben Vendetta

Great clip! What a great band. I unfortunately got into them too late and missed any and all of their (one?) shows in the area.

I recall hearing one post-Adorable tune by Polak on WZBC. Got to look into getting that disc somewhere....

Adorable makes me think of other great early/mid 90's bands that slipped through the cracks and went straight into the cut-out bins (where you tend to find some of the best music!). Whipping Boy and earlier on, Moose, are a couple that spring to mind.

I think of these bands as part of the "first try" at resurrecting the throne left vacant by 80's guitar bands like The Chameleons and The Sound. The "second try" would include the current crop of Interpols, Editors and the like.

Thanks for reminding me about this great band!
