Just about any Fender guitar through a Fender Twin Reverb amplifier should do it for you.

how do you not see them as suitable amps? anything could be used, thats really what indie is, its not a genre its a classification. thats what the irony is, you gave us a list of bands and asked what gear would be good for playing indie like this. you can use anything if youre playing indie, any band that doesnt follow a trend is technically indie. you were basically asking what trend of gear could be used for this trend of bands(for lack of better words, you know what i mean) if youre looking for indie gear, to play indie music, the answer is anything. i could use y gibson and jet city to play indie, i could use an esp and engl to play indie, or a fender and fender etc. but for the bands you listed, i would say everything i said before, and also agree with the others that posted.


also, it could be debated that indie is a trend but thats not what this thread is for lol

its been called indie for about 30 years i call it more so garage rock revival but i was trying to keep it a level that wouldn't confuse anyone. dont think a plexi could rip out some fratellis though....

Just had a listen to a Fratellis song and a plexi could easily pull off all of the tones that I heard. Plexis have some of the best cleans around.

yeah but buying a plexi for cleans seems like the wrong reason to buy one.

kind of a stupid question dude...you can play indie with anything and the bands you mentioned all use completely different gear. Arctic monkeys? strats teles and broncos with orange/vox/hiwatt. The smiths? twin reverbs with rickenbackers/es-335's/les pauls. Libertines? gibsons with ac30's/marshalls.

See what i'm getting at here?
