Drop Nineteens
Drop Nineteens
were an American Boston-based indie rock band active from 1991 to 1995. They were one of a few American based bands who styled themselves on Britain's distinctive shoegazing sound, taking their inspiration from bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Th' Faith Healers, and Bleach. The band was formed by former classmates Greg Ackell (vocals, guitar) and Chris Roof (drums), who recruited Paula Kelley (vocals, guitar), Steve Zimmerman (bass), and Motohiro Yasue (guitar). The band called it a day in 1995 after artistic differences between them.

Links To Peel

The band were regularly played on BBC Radio One between 1992 and 1993, especially on John Peel and Mark Goodier's shows, where the band were invited for sessions.
