Eugene Kelly’s career would probably have fared better had he arrived on the “indie” scene en masse in 2006 with his band’s The Vaselines and Eugenius instead of the late ’80s and early ’90s respectively. While he may not have received commercial notoriety, his influence has been heard the past ten years in countless waves of indie-minded guitar pop outfits. I recently dug out the 1992 Eugenius debut LP Oomalama and it more than holds up 14 years later. There is something to be said for repeating the same word over and over.
