best album? I'm looking to get into them but I'm not sure where to start...
best is their most recent called Take Fountain.
is their best, then possibly Bizarro, then Tommy then take your pick really.
or George Best.
Seamonsters is produced by Steve Albini and is excellent. Plus there is a cover of Come up and see me (make me smile) on it that is amazing.
The only things about the Wedding Present that I found it difficult to get past were firstly the vocals sound like northern Mr bean, and secondly EVERY song is about sleeping with girls/not sleeping with girls/etc. ad infinitum.
Still....that's no dis....great band.
Lightning Seeds done right...
a brilliant description. And i love Lightning Seeds.
'Quick, Before It Melts': best song about male impotence ever?
they have two styles; early on they were jangly and fast, most energetic and punk on George Best, and then more interested in taking the jangly as far experimentally as it would go on Bizarro. They are both awesome. The singles/b sides collection in between, Tommy, has some wonderful tunes on also.
Later, after Bizarro, Gedge got into American indie rock/grunge and Albini produced one of my three favourite albums ever, Seamonsters. The guitar production is perfect, the drums will knock you out. It is 10/10. Heartbreaking.
I think they are the most underated band of their era.
