Leagacy of the Sound - The Open
A while back I did a post on the Sound and how you can hear their influence in the likes of the Editors and The Doves. Another band whose big guitar sound can be traced back to that band are Stafford's The Open. In 1994 they released their debut lp The Silent Hours which was full of soaring vocals and swirling guitars.
They didn't get the sales they deserved maybe not helped by the fact that the 2nd lp swerved off into a direction closer to Talk Talk's later lps and away from the big guitar sound of the debut.
In the meantime here is one of the singles
