Dig it out. Pop it on. Rock out, some.
we never did put together that 10th anniversary fanboy fuckfest, did we? damn.
I am not sure I approve.
it's like truck fest but only happens in our filthy little minds, then splutters all over the page/screen.
though it'll be funny when all the strokes 10th anniversary hits and all the guys start to realise that skinny jeans on adult bodies is a really stupid look...
I'll dig it out later!
P4ks best of the 90s list reminded me vividly that most singers wrote pretentious word jumble lyrics back then. It's what made the few that could write really well stand out so much...
is about the border crossing town near where they lived. i think that's the explanation they gave when they did their session for steve lamacq.
also, in before anyone else with the 'i prefer their old stuff'.
WE'RE GOING TO INFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEST
"CUT MY LIFE IN-TO PIECES!" fame? uuuurghhh...!
While we're slathering over this album again remember it was Ross Robinson that was the genius that managed to capture the band at their best on tape, the production on it is fan-tastic. Except for the second to last track which has essence of GnR about it, well to these ears anyway...
for me they sounded best on vaya.
...driven by a bigger boy, looking for an off licence that would serve us, listening to 'Relationship of Command' at ear-melting volume, is a defining memory of my mid-teens.
I have never been so close to killing a man.
IS IT HEAVIER THAN AIR?!
A life-defining album for me, for sure.
I was just last night thinking about how Relationship Of Command, White Pony AND Rated R all came out in 2000.
That means it's also 10 years since Richard Blackwood's album as they came out in the same week.
: ) I still listen to ROC fairly regularly, its really great, the riff to catacombs is just incredible it blows my mind every time. Im just wondering though for an album so highly praised im not sure it had quite the effect and influence on younger bands, than say the Strokes debut or perhaps the bloc party??
I think on a Friday night I saw At The Drive In and the next day Trail of Dead played. Gigs aren't what they used to be kids. Back in my day......
I was at both of those shows and loved them - halcyon days!!!
for the first time in ages! I had forgotten quite how fantastic it was!
Jeez, there was some seriously good stuff around at the turn of the millenium.
Some good purchasing that day.
without even knowing that it was ten years old this week. What a coincidence!
Yeah, love it love it love it.
