I can't think of any
She thinks they're gash.
...prior to Autobahn. Shame as there is still some good stuff there.
with the red witches hat is fucking incredible. Definitely my favourite after TEE. Amazed they don't rate it.
I think they feel that the first three albums a) are influenced too much by the past/popular trends and don't represent enough of the new sound that they would go on to pioneer and b) feature too much live instrumentation. Too bad.
We call them witches hats around these parts
Pretty much ignore all the early EPs
isn't anything and loveless only just make up for those abominations
they disowned 'The Creep' because it looked funny having Phil Segway just sitting their doing nothing.
didnt think their stuff before his & hers were much cop? Well, they did not like it when their old record label cashed in on their success by re-releasing all their old material, as they did not think it was that great...
and releasing a Best of... as soon as they got big through another label, but they used to play a lot of the old songs live so I don't think they ever totally disowned it.
Also, the 'classic' Pulp line-up wasn't much to do with the first couple of albums, so it's hard for anyone but Jarvis to disown them.
they played their first single
shame their earlier work was their only good work
but you'll have to deal with me looking very grumpy as regards the rest
Nattens Madrigal shits all over that album. so does Kveldssanger
blood inside is a masterpiece imo. #sorrynotsorry
need to listen to kveldssanger actually. might do that now
so melody, very atmosphere
First four albums aren't even listed on their site.
and they are utter shit also.
Cowboys from hell
Just the right amount of 'glam', especially in Phil's vocals which are still pretty versatile, but obviously all the hard groovy stuff as well.
It's my favourite Pantera album.
and his Laughing Gnome
Nothing gets an outing pre-Screamadelica
I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have, but that's about it.
Essentially a Screamdelica track, being the bones of Loaded and also a bonus track on the Screamadelica reissue.
given that it originally appeared on the album of that name
Has he though? I know he says once he's finished making an album he never listens to it again and he only ever hears the old stuff on the radio. I may be wrong but I've never heard him slag it, and he does love good pop music (blur, pulp etc..) i just think he has no interest in making it anymore.
as "the work of a lazy, indulgent man", and began work on Scott 3 saying "Now the nonsense must stop, and the serious business must begin".
I'm not sure whether he's disowned his early stuff as such, or whether he's just exasperated that so many people wish he still made that kind of music. I remember around the time of The Drift he said something along the lines of, if you want to hear music that sounds like Scott 3, go and listen to Scott 3. Which is a fair point.
Turn it Up Faggot!!
And Limbo Panto was great. Cunts.
Such neglect. Especially given that they've gone a bit rubbish now.
only 2 good songs on it which also happen to be the two they sometimes play live
Seem to have given up playing anything off Technique for some bizarre reason. I could be wrong but I don't think they've performed any Technique tracks live since about 1993.
Pretty sure they don't play anything from their early, heavy albums.
... perhaps they thought it couldn't be improved upon? Whatevs, seems a pity.
Have ignored their first album (Vonn?) because it had a different drummer and didn't feature enough whale like noises/uplifting piano arpeggios/soaring majestic melodies/documentary soundtrack ideas.
sounds like 'Green' era REM. Neil Hannon decided to go in the bookish tweedy direction and, as a result, that first album (and a few early EPs) are all but unrecognised nowadays.
dont play anything from their first few albums live these days - havent since they won the mercury music prize
as it's been all downhill since Asleep in the Back.
Started off as a Tribe Called Quest/Arrested Development-esque "conscious" hip-hop act. Have changed their approach somewhat.
Never plays his earlier stuff, not sure if he's really disowned but its still a shame that he doesn't play the earlier stuff live
He has spoken in the past of how he finds much of his early work embarrassing, though he does roll out Invitation to the Blues and Tom Traubert live on a regular basis. The former was probably the high point of the Hammersmith show.
al jourgensen will punch you in the face if you even mention the existence of with sympathy. that's too bad, because it is one of the finest synth pop records of the 80s.
...it seems like the only albums he's especially proud of are Psalm 69 and Houses of Molee-onward, maybe Twitch.
Pre 'Dookie' material jettisoned once they made it big.
Also The Prodigy probably don't play much of their early stuff anymore (apart from Out Of Space)
he'll play old songs just in a completely different, sometimes unrecognizable, way.
Has disowned much of Japan's back catalogue, apart from "Ghosts".
everyone involved has disowned it.
