I've just rediscovered this album and would like to hear more stuff like it, especially the heavier/noisier tracks.
After Murder Park
of 'Light Aircraft On Fire' was better than the one that appeared on the LP, but that LP is a wonderful, unnerving listen all the same.
musically not so much, but they\re both albini jobs and both razor sharp sarcastic.
Sonically they're not that similar I guess, but if it's a mood of early 90s nihilism you're after, it's a winner!
... I've always found it to be curiously uplifting. This fact alone means that I often come back to it when I'm feeling down. Maybe it's something to do with the fact that no matter how bad I might be feeling, at least I don't feel that bad...
Sonic youth - experimental, jet set, trash, no star
sonic youth - dirty
lots of nirvana esque tracks on those that are really noisy
Youtube is being a prick so no links but look up 'Red & Black', 'Massachusetts Murder Medallion' and 'Fly'.
They've never really amounted to much, in terms of popularity at least, but if you like those tracks then pick up The Pink Album.
Think they've recently self-released their first album proper too, though haven't heard it yet. I'm not street-team or nowt, just a favourite band/frustration of mine!
Been kicking about since early noughties producing awesome titbits then fucking off intermittently.
Ah, there we go.
Decided to tell nobody about it as well.
I was bored and googled their bandcamp, and there it was!
One of my favourite records of all time. It's got the same Albini production, just with even better musicians. Kurt was a big fan and this record was probably a factor in them choosing to record with Albini. Their 'Liar' album is very nearly as good.
Maybe also try the Melvins - Houdini. I'm pretty sure Dave Grohl wrote the riff to Scentless Apprentice as an attempt to sound like them again. They were very Melvins-y when they did Bleach.
As a pretty leftfield choice i'd add PJ Harvey - Rid of Me. Mainly again for the way the album feels and sounds. Amazing record.
this is probably a better comparison:
Melvins: It's Shoved (Bullhead - 1991)
Nirvana: Milk It (In Utero - 1993)
very much. i dont hear much of them in what nirvana did...but nevertheless an incredible band. Tim Tyler RIP
sooooo much! xox
Stoner Witch or Houdini should do the trick.
has it's really Nirvana-esque moments.
Pretty difficult to compare anything else with it really IMO.
Another Albini recording and one of the most bleak, intense, visceral UK rock albums ever. 20 years old this year, came out around the same time as Nevermind and, in my opinion, pisses all over it.
Seriously this album is killer. It's on spotify:
copper blue, and Beaster, by Sugar.
