Where to begin?
For anyone who cares ... Kurt's playing Dingwalls on Nov 17th with his KORT project, Kurt and Cortney (Tidwell).
but i found i really got into them by listening to the rarities compilation 'The Decline of Country and Western Civilisation'. i think there's 2 versions, my one started with 'Soaky in the Pooper'. and strangely, none of their other albums come close to matching it imo. it's all over the map stylistically so you're bound to find some aspect of the band you like, whereas their official albums tend to stick to one specific style.
Great version of Give Me Your Love on that one. Plus the Saturday Option is super-duper.
Nixon is great too. After that I didn't bother anymore. Saw them at the RFH on that tour, amazing sounds, then not long after at Somerset House before Is A Woman came out but that was a bit dull in comparison.
You need this album in your life. I agree about The Decline of Country & Western Civilisation as well though... It's definitely one of the better rarities compilations out there. It also has 'Beyond Belief', which bizarrely predicts the sound of TVOTR: http://open.spotify.com/track/01RtyjDyLY7LdbqpF7tl0T
