1995 was a substantial year. Yahoo was incoporated; the Tokyo subway attacks happened; Richey Edwards goes AWOL from the Manic Street Preachers; Christopher Reeve knackers his back; South Africa win the Rugby Union World Cup; and Microsoft give us Windows ’95. It is fitting that a band named 1995 should also be deemed “substantial”, in a few respects. They substantially make us think that New Zealanders are way cooler than us Brits, and they make substantially good tunes, that would make a substantial amount of Ian Curtis fans substantially happy.
