i have the bread and butter now i need the milk and sugar.
IDEAS? what was your favourite??
Christmas discovery of mine.
And Chavez. Always Chavez. But they were around a bit more recently.
(this is for the music for the pavement thing i'm doing which means i can't come to your do thing)....
THANKYOU. i'll have a listen. i am currently listening to vitreous humor. i can't believe the goldmine of great stuff there is i never knew existed! belly are amazing, and nobody ever even talks about them. it needs to be back in fashion again.
very much like. is there anything similar which is just as great?
you have one of the best music tastes out of everyone i'm friends with on last.fm. THAT'S a compliment.
what kind of bread and butter you got.
dr jr. (course)
apples in stereo
etc etc you get the idea...
that was only in jest. now... music pls?
Superchunk is what dan_thw would say
Jawbox is what I would say
don't have the others. will get on it.
This list should set you up for a while with some sick 90's music.
The Catherine Wheel
Yo La Tengo
Talk Talk(mainly an 80's band but their best album came out in the 90's)
The Beta Band
The Olivia Tremor Control
Guided By Voices
The Jesus Lizard
and last but certainly not least
If you listen to these your heads in the right place.
and hellooo there.
Amazing. Wouldn't play at a club mind.
Man, I'd love to hear that in a club.
i was going to say something about radiohead like but i think it's for the best if i keep quiet. good list otherwise, i'll have a look for the ones i don't know. fanx!
Superchunk - No Pocky for Kitty (LP)
St. Johnny - High as a kite (LP)
cherry on top;
i have to get hold of that!!
I was riot grrl way before the pack
Medicine - Shot Forth Self Living (LP)
Eggs - Teenbeat 96 Exploder (LP)
and some other stuff I can't remember
I dun like 'em. I don't know why exactly...I just don't.
but I love them. All that mantra-type repetition and only he could get away with singing those lyrics and sounding like a prophet or something. I reckon they are worth plugging away with.
Chavez are good too yeah everyone listen to Chavez.
And nobody has mentioned Heavy Vegetable yet they were pretty cool too
Probably. Along with Nation of Ulysses. It's great when you dig out albums you bought four years ago in your bumming dischord phase and they're actually really awesome
as is the monged out headbang.
i'm not very good at actually reading the threads these days! Brainiac or Enon might be good for that sort of thing
(that's what she said)
Drive like Jehu and Pitchfork
<3 x infinity
THE LEMONHEADS UNTIL I DIE.
Archers of Loaf, obvz.
Ummm...you totally need more Replacements.
Sugar (who in my - most likely wrong - estimation are better than Husker Du)
The Rentals are like a twee version of Weezer (it's the band their first bassist started around the time Pinkerton came out) so you'd probably really like them.
i've posted in the jingle, pandapop and tiger trap stuff since we've been putting them on! YOU HAVE JUST NOT NOTICED. stealth posting.
About Sugar that is. Replacements weren't really that 90s were they? I dunno, I thought their best stuff was released in the late 80s.....
but Copper Blue is such a perfect album that it tends to hurt when I listen to it. The 'Mats were definitely an 80s band, though I have no problem hearing them when out. Some of Westerberg's solo stuff is alright in a borderline-ridiculous major label way, especially the stuff off the Singles soundtrack.
will change your mind.
just depends how much indie or rock you want
and I recently was listening to some very nice Twilight Singers stuff too, but that may be the 00s, I'm not sure.
If you played Be Sweet in a club I'd swoon.
Yes those last two count. Someone played Rebel Girl at a clubnight I went to recently. Fucking brilliant.
There's Nothing Wrong With Love
june of 44
shudder to think
By Archers of Loaf. What an album! Also: Silkworm. I guess you've already checked out GBV and Built to Spill, in the unlikely event you haven't, do it!
i'd rather poke my own eyes out.
I'd have pulled out of the gig for that comment.
don't act surprised!
and blind love for
Flaming Lips' amazing 90s output esp Clouds Taste Metallic
Olivia Tremor Control predate all the Neutral Milk Collecitve Social Scene business
Sugar are amazing. Get Copper Blue
Codeine slowcore lushness
Morphine Yes is best
Urge Overkill Saturation
Mazzy Star any and all
oh and have a bandage ready if you go 'ead and poke yr self
I know mainly 80's but they had the nicest college rock sound
The Dismemberment Plan - sad and hilarious depictions of post-collegiate angst set to inventive, beautiful indie-rock squalls
The Promise Ring - sweet and messy indie-rock
Braid - brilliant melodic posthardcore/emo/indie with wonderful lyrics
Also, massive secondings for Afghan Whigs, Built To Spill and Yo La Tengo.
it's sad that it kind of suffers from the "emo" stigma. it really is a great album especially the "let's talk about the sound of a phone outside of texaco..." part.
Probably already been mentioned, anyway.
Swirlies were pretty much the amalgamation of everything on this page suggested here - well, that and shameless MBV rip offs. Blonder Tongue Audio Baton is, nonetheless, a fucking great record.
Shudder To Think
God Machine ( kinda American!)
Six Finger Satellite
not many of these sound much like pavement and most have been suggested, but WHATEVER. i've avoided some of the obvious stuff.
drive like jehu
nation of ulysses
the jesus lizard
girls against boys
six finger satellite
does it have to be american, cos otherwise you could play urusei yatsura or something.
for not being american and that.
come to leeds for it? you can crash at mine????
i need to stop saying that...
i will come baring lettuce.
No? Ok, Helium! The Magic City is amazing if you like your indie with a touch of medieval and fantasy imagery.
Sleater-Kinney are also amazing, but have been mentioned.
where one hit wonders...
-Deep Blue Something
etc etc etc
a cover was their biggest hit
You people sicken me to my very core.
'94 I think
They were a bit rubbish
Jawbreaker - Unfun (1990)
Seam - Headsparks (1991)
Beat Happening - You Turn Me On (1992)
Scrawl - Velvet Hammer (1993)
The Halo Benders - God Don't Make No Junk(1994)
Pitchblende - Au Jus (1995)
The Van Pelt - Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves (1996)
Karate - In A Place Of Real Insight (1997)
Blonde Redhead - In An Expression Of The Inexpressible (1998)
Radar Bros. - The Singing Hatchet (1999)
(although i do prefer 'very soon, and in pleasant company' but think that's not released in the 90s.)
WHAT A CRIME
Here's mine (all mentioned already)
Rocket from the Crypt (maybe)
wot... no Dinosaur Jr!??! shame on you all!!!
I've only got Death To Traitors but it is absolutely splendid.
June of 44
Mule (PW Long)
Kepone (on 1/4Stick I think)
did someone say Codeine? The White Birch is great
and Built to Spill are good in a lot of 90s American rock ways.
everyone's already discussed how Pavement is the best thing ever, right? Right.
there's really going to be no time in between bands so really i don't even need that much. i just wanted some ideas.
Not Found. Where's sadpunk when you need him?
I can't believe I didn't see this post five hours ago.
we have the technology
rowdy enough to be "rock," but still sugary. also, early cursive stuff is from the 90s (capped off by domestica in 00, so really close to the 90s). modest mouse fits to, but i guess that's "bread and butter."
but i'd like to nominate early alkaline trio. 'Cop' to be precise. CUZ IT'S ACE. anything else i'd recommend has already been said!
is like saying "recommend me some great sandwiches", then halfway through admitting you don't like bread.
Seriously, check out the 80s stuff, it isn't all Everybody Hurts and Shiny Happy People!
it's alright, i've given alex the task of persuading me they're good. he's good at choosing things i like.
who existed in the early 90s and just put a few of their songs up. I can't remember what they were called though. But they were really good. Kind of Archers of Loaf-ish I think.
This is a pretty pointless post really. I'd like to find out who they were but I can't really tell you more than that.
Meanwhile, back at the thread, Karate are great, amazing musicianship. The first two albums are Fugazi/Slint-esque and they later did some pretty awesome noodly guitar stuff which was different, but no less wonderful.
at least the record i have is. it;s called pockets i think. has a song called water on it.
my flat mate claimed it sounded like the red hot chilli peppers.
well, not shit, but every other album is miles better.
My friend said it sounded like Maroon 5.
ps hi lauren
essay is going well. I HATE MY LIFE. i have come to the conclusion that posting on here about this is a waste of time as there isn't actually going to be any time to play more than 4 songs.
