because i wanted to listen to them, and the single artwork looked like Pettibon SST artwork. i just put it on and :(
Which one did you buy?
I reckon the best is Let It Bloom. Or the live album, which is sodding brilliant.
Messy punk done good.
Bad Kids and Leroy Faster.
i was expecting them to be loud and fast, but both songs are NEITHER loud NOR fast!
which is a bit hit and miss.
Let It Bloom is great. They're not always that fast. But they're definitely loud and raucous and recorded on a 4 track.
Times New Viking are wai better though.
they dont sound bad
but i mean come on,
they so did not justify this artwork
Has he not heard garage rock before?
It took me a few listens to get past the whole country influence
this is enough to know it will be bad
but they were pretty good. Got better towards the end.
Their new album is pretty polished sounding. I don't think I like it as much as the old stuff.
and about the best I can say is they're better than the Black Kids (my least fav "black" band).
Black Star Liner
Blackalicious (maybe not, I have no idea)
Black box recorder
The Black Dog
i loved them for a while, but they got rather old, rather quickly...harmless though.
the live album and let it bloom are great records though
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
...shessh, I'll bet there's a wikipedia on 'black' bands..ha!
just that based on the artwork they sounded like nothing i expected/wanted them to
absolute born divvies
The new album is brilliant! and the live album is my favorite live album ever!
the artwork is misleading but I've learned not to get my hopes up based purely on artwork.
unless it's the new weezer!!!!
bad kids is an awesome singalong song!
get Let It Bloom first cus thats still quite scraggly sounding and if you can get with that then all will become clear.
along with it instead...
They are amazing! They're recordings are ace and live they are brilliantly shambolic. I saw them play acoustically in a record shop and even that ruled hard.
PS> Moustaches in bands = good thing.
their recordings. Add one extra div to the div count.
