Slowdive probably.

Cripes, it took ten responses for someone to go with Ride? Dang. I'm with beau. In my opinion they're so far and away the best I can't even think of the runner-up.

Chapterhouse???

Do you know at Reading 92 (or was it 91) Chapterhouse came on after a certain Seattle band. I was there.

My highschool band was called "Drive Blind". Ride was the first foreign band I saw live therefore, they will always have a special place in my heart. I hardly ever listen to them these days. I think I might put them on right about ... now.

Cocteau Twins, also. Even though Moz despises them, I could care less.
I love them, ever since I heard the song Whales Tails.

Ride, Pale saints , Field mice , thats the trilogy for me , also MBV and etc

Cocteau Twins are not shoegaze., at least for me.

As beau and Very Moz commented, Cocteau Twins are not shoegazer band.

It's good to remember Chapterhouse.

Heres another one... Napalm Death! Only kidding.

My faves were Ride and MBV (who I still listen to!)

what is a 'shoegazer' band?
(I know Slowdive & My Bloody Valentine's music though, but I've never heard anyone call 'em 'shoegazer'. So..it's kind of dreamy?)

I hate everything shoegazing. All that f***ing apathy. Along with "post-rock" (how f***ing makey-uppy does that sound?), the shittiest sub-genre.
