"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
Speaking of electronic/rock blends, try Splashdown. They broke up after label issues, but they were pretty good. They play traditional instruments in an almost inorganic way... it sounds a lot like Portishead.
