"So what kind of music are you guys?"

Every band hates answering this one. The more self- delusional will answer "We're not like anything else." So I went through a stupid book I found recently "The All-Music Guide" where it purported to list every major style in 20th century popular music. All of the following labels listed in it could be used to describe at least one of our songs:
Alternative Pop-Rock, Brit Pop, Bubble Gum, Experimental, Garage Rock, Goth Rock, Indie Rock, Jangle Pop, New Wave, Paisley Underground, Punk, Post-Punk, Rock N Roll, Shoegazing.
In terms of influential bands, whether or not the music reflects it: The Smiths, The Cure, early REM, The Beatles, Radiohead, Stereolab,
