Nice pickings, but why does The Campfire Headphase always get such a shafting?
all the hatered for campfire headphase either, i think it stands up there with the rest of their back catalogue. maybe not my favourite but its certainly not the piece of shit that a lot of people seem to make it out to be

It is a well written and well researched in depth piece. It's a bit wilfully obscure though, picking just ten tracks and choosing half of them from the dustiest recesses of BoC history whilst dismissing The Campfire Headphase in a single line and not even mentioning the Trans Canada ep.
No place either for one of my personal favourites 'Happy Cycling' from the Peel Session.
anyone who dismisses this tune out of hand is a buffoon
One of my favourite pieces of music. Great record.
Yet for some reason I have no desire whatsoever to read what critics/reviewers have to say about them, does anyone else feel that way?
Campfire Headphase got a terrible review in The Wire but then it ended up in the their top 10 albums of the year. Personally I find it an easier album to listen to than Geogaddi. I`ve always liked it.
But is tiring to listen to in its entirety. Also, it constantly bounces around between different styles of BofC sound, which over the course of such a long album... I use the FF button a lot.
Campfire Headphase has got much more in common with Music Has The Right.. in my opinion.
some silly billies out there.
Not impressed how he has gone out of his way to find obscure stuff.
Good article, and the author is clearly passionate about band. But, having the Peel Session version of Olson in the top ten tracks is a woeful decision. I mean, it's a nice little piece of music, but... top ten? Really?
best was the ep ina beautiful place
