Genres: Indie Pop

The Pooh Sticks were an indie pop band from Swansea, Wales recording between 1988 and 1995. They were notable for their jangly melodiousness and lyrics gently mocking the indie scene of the time such as on "On tape", "Indie-pop ain't Noise Pollution" and "I Know Someone who Knows Someone who knows Alan McGee Quite Well". The band changed direction on their 1991 U.S breakthrough ''The Great White Wonder'', eschewing the 'twee' British indie pop sound for a more American-styled Power pop sound, akin to bands like Jellyfish and Redd Kross. Subsequent albums ''Million Seller'', considered by some Power Pop fans to be the band's best work, and ''Optimistic Fool'' followed in this style.
