    The Crystal Method - Poor mans Chemical Brothers I could add a few poor mans Radiohead and/or Jeff Buckley bands, but that list would be too long, and don't get me started on the wannabe Nick Drakes out there.

    Haha, You serious Brain of G? I'd put Franz Ferdinand and the Strokes on an equal footing myself (not particularly a big fan of either), Franz Ferdinand may do hooky mildly danceable indie pop too, but they are hardly Strokes copyists. Then theres the fact that Strokes are pretty derivative of Velvet Underground/Blondie to start with!

    I'm not a fan on either myself but I just think Franz Ferdinand copied The Strokes sound and style. It doesn't bother me really I don't have a preference for either just The Strokes were the originals. And Blondie are far superior to both!!

    Fair enough, but I kinda figured that this thread was about bands that sound like poor imitations of others. They usually gotta be around first to be imitated. Anyway the two bands are different, Sigur Ros hallmarks are high pitched vocals, a sense of vague but undefined angst, nonsensensical lyrics. Radiohead on the other hand.... oh... I see your point (joking aside, personally, I'd much rather listen to Radiohead than Sigur Ros, although I don't really listen to Radiohead much these days.)

    Aha, but have you considered the possibility that Thom Yorke might have been able to go forward in the chronological timeline but using a multi-plane, psychobiomechanics, imaging system hardwired to his cerebellum which allowed him to make retropredictographs of future explorations of the sonic enviroment ?
