Blonde Redhead are total Sonic Youth knock-off. I do like them though.

Deerhunter. Critics love them for their 'innovative and experimental' sound. But the first thing I thought when I heard them was: early Sonic Youth. http://www.myspace.com/deerhunter

My Bloody Valentine were clearly listening to American bands like Husker Du and Sonic Youth when they transformed from a twee pop act into their beloved shoegaze combo. The post-rock scene owes a lot to them. Nirvana, Mudhoney, and a bunch of other "grunge" bands.

The most? My Bloody Valentine, without Sonic Youth, would sound a lot more like Zen Arcade than they already do.
I like this post, especially the first sentence.

I'd also like to say that using alternate tunings is not ripping off SY, they don't hold copyright over that. I personally think that alternate tunings create infinitely more possibilities with guitar music than standard tuning. I think it was Lee who said something along the lines of "When you play a guitar in standard tuning, things sound pretty...well...standard"

Played with them a while ago - weird that they're taking off. they were fun. one of the guys was in a great band called pest exhibition i think, i never got to check them out live though.
