I really like them, what do you reckon?
What do you recommend? A friend of mine was a massive Grateful Dead fan, and when he died me and a group of others decided to form a Grateful Dead tribute band and do a one off gig in memory of him. It never happened though, sadly...
and American Beauty.
Aoxomoxoa is also really good. I went through a period of getting most of their CDs for a fiver in Fopp. Good times.
not to into anything after about 1970ish
but some of their stuff is just blinding. They do have a hefty back catalogue though, so there is some rubbish noodling to skip past, but I do think they're fucking quality, and often unfairly maligned.
I also heard one that was sort of psychedelic countryish, that was even better.
I intend to go into them, but they've got awful imagery and style on their album covers.
They deserve to be so much cooler, what with their association with Ken Kesey etc. but they seem a bit comic.
