where to start?
but I reckon TJL is one band you can go into a gig cold and you would still enjoy it, that is if David Yow is still the madman he was in the 90s. One time I saw him he said "during TISM's set I will be giving out free blowjobs behind the green stage." gold
as I believe it to be their worst album. I would recommend starting with Liar or Down and work backwards, then pick up Shot and Blue. Most of the original members had left on these last two and even David Yow himself said he wasn't really enjoying it anymore.
It's telling that they didn't play anything from either of these albums when I saw them a couple of weeks ago at the Forum.
And yes, David Yow is just as mad as he was when I saw them at Reading in 1994, at that time I had heard nothing of them but they blew me away!
Love this band!
Theyt played Blue shot at the Forum and they played thumbscrews at ATP and Primavera I am sure
but yeh..shot represented!
Blimey, my memory was never very good! Apologies!
Although I started with Down, which worked for me.
Or do you pronounce it as 'liiiiir'?
Nice one, Mark Lawrenson.
is my favourite. Prefer the production. Then Liar.
All of them are good, except in my opinion Blue.
Shot is a very good album, ignore people that say it is crap. They are only repeating things they think they are supposed to say
the production isn't as in yo face as Liar or Goat though. And track 4 on my cd skips, what were those guys thinking.
Liar is the best. Liiiiiiiiike, Moses!
ironically this album has some of the more memorable bass lines even if they were 'put back in the mix'...Skull of a German and Blue shot???
Trephination is basically my friday night phone calls to my friend
I mainly think the drums sound a bit shit. I hope you aren't the gibbering wreck type fella on the end of the phone!
I don't wanna impose...sob sob...
or maybe they genuinely don't like it as much as the others!
I don't think it's crap I just think it's their worst album, it's still good, the guy was asking where to start and I was saying that I didn't think it was as good a place to start as their earlier stuff (personally, as I said in my post)
It's just shot is automatically shot down a lot (woohoo) by albino legionaires and I expected a lot of people will jump on here repeating that mantra.
iPhone keeps on changing it to albino and alvin
Boilermaker is the finest introduction to any album and start praying they tour over here later in the year, doing some US dates following the reissued LPs.
Starts with Dudley, Mouth Breather and Nub... whew.
the best first 3 tracks on any album ever!
