kind of bands where the most imagination and creativity was put into the band names and even then that's not very littleAmerican indie is more consistent but somehow, even less interesting than British indie
so it rarely plumbs the truly naff depths of Shitbrit but equally it is never, ever, as a rule, interesting, in any capacity
just an endless soundtrack of relatively competent chamber pop and/or uninspired nu-garage rock to soundtrack car commercials
British indie I'm sure also produces a tidal wave of that kind of forgettable dross but it is occasionally bad in a memorable way
i.e. "do you want us to assign someone to butter your muffin?"
that kind of inspired, nonsensical badness is beyond the remit of American indie
