I only got this a week ago, it's suddenly become my favourite Shellac record.
Everyeone else agree? Good, yeah.
By some distance.
1000 Hurts could be bettered, I was really really REALLY wrong. This is brilliant.
by the way.
People always say 1000 Hurts and they're always cloth-eared, wrong or both.
1) At Action Park
2) 1,000 Hurts
3) the other 2, both have good moments but too many meh moments too.
1000 Hurts has some good stuff on it and lots of meh.
Excellent Italian Greyhound has 8 great tracks and just 1 dodgy one.
Terraform is a great album, just not at the same energy level as At Action Park. But there isn't a bad track on there.
...they're all amazing and unique is the first thing to say.
and the second is that at action park is the bestest. Hell I wanted to go to a dog and pony show until I realised what it actually was and it made me a bit ill.
It doesn't sound so bad:
Though I think the song presumably references the term in its modern usage, as mentioned in the final paragraph. I always took it to be about that.
Can't remember where I read this, but apparently it's a euphemism for an inappropriate sex act involving many men and one woman. More likely to be what Steve Albini is singing about but I could be wrong.
never played it!
and I'm not cloth-eared. So there.
BUT, it's buried beneath many boxes currently.
When I unpack (three months late) I will play it again.
