They are perhaps the only band that I have ever fallen in love with, and I mean totally fallen in love with, entirely retrospectively. Intellectually I know that I had never heard a note of their music before the year 2000 (by which time their recording career was long over barring a fine reunion album a few years later) but I feel like it has been with me for my whole life and I cannot imagine life without it.

Well, you've certainly piqued my interest with that statement!
