Verve, particularly their first album: A Storm In Heaven and also check out Alcest: Souvenirs d'un autre monde. Its a little heavier but still good.

Some of Jesu's earlier stuff is more metal than shoegaze but their last record is very good indeed.

Oceansize is another one to try.

Lush.

other people have mentioned all the main ones.

#17
is The Helio Sequence classified as shoegaze? i've heard that they are but I'm not sure.

If so, they're awesome and you should listen to them.

I'm not big on the term shoegaze.

The Jesus and Mary Chain are my favourite band of all time. But I wouldn't call them 'shoegaze', maybe Psychocandy fits that tag a bit, but everything afterwards certainly does not (e..g Darklands, Automatic)

Otherwise, Spirtualized, Slowdive and MBV obviously.

If you like shoegaze inspired stuff; M83 is brilliant; he's like an electronic MBV

Definately Jesus and Mary Chain.
Lush are not very good, in my opinion.
Get the Brian Jonestown Massacre's first album "Methodrone".
Galaxie 500.
Primal Scream maybe.
Danelectro

Primal Scream is far more famous for their contributions to Acid House, I must say.

If you like that BJM album (Methodrone), get Dandys Rule, OK? by The Dandy Warhols.

Most of the BJM and the Dandys' respective catalogs consist of '60s revival and psych pop, but they started out with some great more shoegaze-y ****.

While most of their career is noise/indie-pop, the Magnetic Fields' Distortion could be considered shoegaze.
