'''The La's''' were a short-lived PowerPop group from Liverpool, England, known for their {{Retraux}} sound that was inspired by groups like Music/TheKinks, and their hit single "There She Goes". They released a critically-acclaimed SelfTitledAlbum in 1990, but because of conflicts between the band and lead singer Lee Mavers' extreme perfectionism, they disowned the final result and broke up shortly after the album's release. Every other release they've done since has been compilation albums and live material. Today, The La's are labeled as a major influence in BritPop, and many bands such as Music/{{Oasis}} and Travis have labeled them as an influence.
