i like harsh feedback in songs.
fugazi - twenty three beats off
slint - rhoda (ep version)
I hate it. I think it should be outlawed. What do you think of that?
loads of reasons. when used well it sounds great.
- when combined with sustain (nick mccabe/early verve type stuff)
- used to enter into a new part of a song, gives it good flow/energy
- good set closers! mogwai anyone?
but i do agree that a lot bands who aren't very good just do it to hide that they are shit.
One I regret missing. I still play 'In A Hole' from Psychocandy, to clear the room of other members of my family; its seriously good use of feedback.
by the wildhearts.
- and you cant hear the words etc..
Some of the harshest most brutal feedback and general guitar noise I've heard in ages. Tinnitus-inducing on headphones.
I'm all for it! Can't beat a good bit of feedback.
A place to bury strangers are wicked too.
also check out a beautiful machine, some of their stuff is downright sickening.
or just go for prurient. lolz
but that's the point! I love it.
Oh wait, it's the Wildhearts. Oh yeah.
than anything nirvana ever dreamed of recording. it's speaker breakingly loud.
its mastered like a motherfucker. like guitar wolf high.
A whole album created for the Boss feedback pedal.
It's bass feedback not guitar but Bliss by palehorse is just one song entirely comprised of feedback.
Or is it verse 3?
Anyway, pure feedback bliss.
Opening to at least on of the songs on Relationship of Command.
The EP version of Rhoda is the nuts as well, when it comes back in at the end..
make some nice feedback drenched music. If you can manipulate it then you can make feedback sound lovely.
i am a new christ
are by far the best purveyors of feedback. I point you in the direction of their 7 minute opus 'At The Stake'.
My favourite example is on Boo Radleys' Does This Hurt. See here for proof:
I just got the "Blue Jay" album. Holy crap! Feedbacktastic!http://www.myspace.com/pterodactyl
'Anthrax' by Gang Of Four. A repetitive bassline and drumbeat, and really gritty guitar feedback throughout the entirety of the song. Swish.
Page Hamilton (from Helmet) and Caspar Brotzmann, creating a racket for an hour.
I'm a lucky boy.
silver session for jason knuth. feedback bliss.
and not ONE bloody person has mentioned Metal Machine Music?
What's wrong with you all?
