Thrillionaire – “Wie Gehts?” Directed and Edited by Laura Maxwell

Twitter is full of people recommending their friends’ bands/work as you know and that of course is something we simply don’t do so it was a relief when Yani Gellman, LA actor (Pretty Little Liars, 90210 etc) and Withered Hand fan, recommended a video his friend had made that thankfully it turned out to be quite good. As you will also know we don’t go for that everything is brilliant routine either. Anyway well worth watching.

As usual this is a first draft so it may change lower down the order if I find I’ve missed something. I’ve included the eps by MBV but not Loveless as it was a reissue though that too would have charted. The Shins were helped a little by the album already being reduced in price. Sigur Ros only made it in on vinyl sales as the CD sold very little. As you will see self distributed albums are few indeed with Olympic Swimmers and Cathode Ray flying the flag (pun intended !)
