What do you think is their best album? I can never make my mind up. At the moment its 'One Beat'.
for different reasons.
Dig Me Out is recommended in some "top 1000 records of all time" book i was perusing in Waterstones the other day.
The Woods is beautifully brutal and complex. One Beat's polemic and melodies aer fab. All Hands... is a work of genuis, The Hot Rock is a bit of a departure of sorts but still briliant.
Too difficult a call to make I think.
but that's all it's taken me to fall in love with them. When they split it was just when I was getting into them so I never saw them. :(
I'm going to get One Beat next.
Definitely. Although I do love The Woods.
I can't believe I missed them play one of their last ever shows, when they toured in May. I have absolutely no idea why I didn't go!
One Beat and the Hot Rock are close, but the Woods is just on another level. I believe the band feels the same-all of the Woods was played at their final show.
are another former band. For both them and Heavens to betsy you really have to like S-Ks early, riot grrrl stuff. The Cadallaca records are just great pop records though.
I think the Woods is S-Ks best album. As a huge long term fan I really wondered what they could do after One Beat as they had been so consistently brilliant all the way through I thought there had to be a dip. Then they released The Woods and it just blew me away, took them to another level.
