    Swervedriver`s 99th Dream makes a good frisbee since the music is`nt too good :P their other albums are great though

    I always play Don A Man from Spiderland around Halloween cuz it`s such a spooky song :shock: did you know the drummer from Slint(Britt Walford) was in the Breeders on their Pod album?he was the original drummer in Squirrel Bait but was fired for being crazy :twisted:

    They still were free. I told her I liked that dog. She downloaded them at home, and hated it. Said it was Kraft Singles music (close to something you like, but not there). :P

    Talking about Idaho:

    Quote:
    For instance, you look up Built to Spill because you’ve read about them in some indie ‘zine. You see that there is this other band cross-listed with Built to Spill called Stuntman. That’s a bonus because Stuntman is still pretty obscure. Where you really rack up the points is by pointing out that both those bands arose out of Treepeople. You couldn’t pick Treepeople out of a lineup, but you’ve just linked three cool bands from Idaho. That’s right, Idaho. Who the heck is going to doubt your authority after that?

    …..from the very funny So you wanna fake being an indie rock expert? :twisted:

    den Buck, about to go and drink a nice cold ice cold Palm beer (or maybe two…. :wink: ) ! 8)

    Wherehouse Music bankrupcy is awesome!

    There’s a big one here that is closing. Last week new stuff was 40% off. Used cds were 75% off. They are so overprice normally that even 40% off a new cd isn’t that great, but it’s still pretty good.

    New I got:

    Yo La Tengo–Summer Sun–$11
    Grandaddy–Sumday–$8
    The Coral–s/t–$8 ( I was actually ripped off here cause it’s list price was only 10)

    I bought 13 used cds for about $2 each. Some of them I have and plan to sell for more or were things I was taking a gamble on and may not keep anyway. But for $2, who cares?

    I went back today and new stuff was 50% off. So I got:

    Soundtrack of Our Lives–Behind the Music–$6
    Elvis Costello–Imperial Bedroom (2 disc)–$9
    Flaming Lips–Yoshimi Battles…–$7
    Iggy Pop–Lust for Life–$7

    Goes up to 60% off next week! They have a lot of shit that’s only ten normally because they are discounted as promos (like the D4, Libertines, Stratford 4) that I will probably pick up, as well as the new Nick Cave and New Pornographers. People in San Diego are chumps and don’t have good taste, so I’m pretty confident all this stuff will still be there.

    I’m really liking the Grandaddy, btw. I bought it kind of on a whim and am really pleasantly surprised.

    …Hey BR, sounds like a great sale, lots of cool stuff (and the new Grandaddy for only 8$, that’s what I call lots of value for money….. 8) )

    I bought:

    Alejandro Escovedo – Live Heilbronn (Germany) 12.12.2002 (official Blue Rose Bootleg)

    the Thermals – More parts per million
    13 songs in 26 minutes, GBV meets the Strokes? ….never a dull momment, on Sub Pop 8)

    the Sad Riders – Lay your head on the soft rock
    Swiss Dino-adepts Favez go (alt-)country with surprising results, ending up sounding a little like Belgian bands like dEUS and Admiral Freebee, nice…. :)
