Who is better? Impossible to answer.
I found GBV quite hard to get into whereas I don't think I've heard a truly awful superchunk song, just a few that drag out a bit.
in the Superchunk category as well.
i bet he threw it in the bin
superchunk. but gbv follow closely.
So I'll vote for Portastatic's Bright Ideas. I don't have the new one yet.
Uhm, GBV way more inconsistant, but maybe hits higher highs. I think I like Universal Truths & Cycles best.
Superchuck is like Spoon. Very consistantly good, but never quite mind blowingly great.
Well for a period anyway...
Late Century Dream and Art Class e.p.'s are absolute corkers, I've only recently got them but was amazed at how good they are and varied, I love it when they do acoustic/slower stuff...
I only have Indoor Living and Come Pick Me Up, so I'm hardly an authority on the subject... but that never stops me from making statements which sound like Royal Decrees. ;)
except my favourites are Propeller and Alien Lanes
Imagine an early Foo Fighters BUT SO MUCH BETTER.
.....and it was blue.
and 'Here's Where the Strings Come In'
..what do I need next?
"On the mouth" or "Foolish" in my opinion. Or maybe the "Superchunk" if you like a really raw sounding album with no production at all.
And my vote is for Superchunk
should be mentioned in wishpigs under appreciated thread, eh.
Weird how Mac runs Merge records... Merge fucking Records! ...and he doesn't he get a slot for "Superchunk" at my local cd shop.
'On the Mouth' always seems to get a positive response, it's Amazon time.
