I like Ballad of the Broken Seas. Tell me which Mark Lanegan album album to buy next. Go on...
but i love Screaming Trees
half of it is mediocre as fuck
basically, i wouldn't recommend it
Field Songs is his best I think
...their new one with his vocals on most of the tracks- 'Its not how far you fall, it's the way you land' - bloody fantastic. And definitely 'Bubblegum' as well,that's his last solo album and it's awesome, some great collaborations with PJ Harvey, Greg Dulli etc. And 'Field songs'. Ummm.... oh just get them all. And if you don't have QOTSA 'songs for the deaf', get that too, if not just for hangin tree...
he will never beat it!
WS is great too.
is the answer you're looking for.
Field songs first
then whiskey for the holy ghost
then I'll take care of you
then The Winding sheet
Bubble gum somewhere in there
at Glasgows ABC. One of the other photographers remarked to me that he was a bit scared of the looks he was receiving from ML, I'd assumed he was clocking my tattoos :p
I keep meaning to buy some Screaming Trees stuff but I'm scared I'll buy their worst album and it'll put me off so suggestions please
I remember seeing them on something like Jools Holland a long time ago and the chorus really stuck with me. A few years later The Verve got huge with Bittersweet Symphony and I was convinced they'd pilfered the chorus from that Screaming Trees song, that's just my take on it
and Halo of Ashes. I still have it on video. Josh Homme played 'backup' guitar. I had no idea who he was at the time, just that he looked skinny and out of place next to the Connor brothers.
Plenty to work with here... :-)
i love 'ballad of broken seas' but haven't heard anything else. I think i might go for Field Songs :)
