I know this is my nomination, but please press play on the Buddy video. Rediscovered this through an NME compilation - a classic Kiwi Flying Nun tune.

"Snapper, the brainchild of Peter Gutteridge (founding member of The Clean, and The Chills), quickly became known for their swirling walls of distorted guitar and keyboards"

Adding it as a top 1000 song :)

I am the second vote for CAN. I'm also bummed that Big Star won't likely survive this round.
