I've heard a couple of songs which I really like. Which is their best album?
If you like the rougher older stuff more I would suggest 'Fuel For The Hate Game' or 'No Division'. To be honest, you can't really go wrong with HWM.
Check out The Draft as well. 3/4 of HWM and pretty damn good
one of the best live bands i ever saw!
if you like them, Leatherface are a better British alternative.
...there is a wealth of stuff to get into.
stuff like small brown bike or anything remotely involved with no idea records is awesome.
i have all the rumbleseat 7"'s, they're divine.
...really, really good.
and i'm seeing the draft on saturday. it's the closest i'll ever get.
the hot water music show i saw is probably in my top 10 ever. i was almost in tears by the end. i got to sing some of 'rooftops'
and about 60 people in a tiny social club thats never been used for a gig again.
Like many of Bukowski's compilations it suffers from lack of variety- the main themes are always sex/drink/gambling/death.
Though, for me, this is what makes Bukowski so good; he writes about universal themes, whilst everyone else pukes up words bent double on a street corner.
