Yeah, I made another one… My legendary sequal to Allison’s legendary post was getting a bit heavy itself, so here you go… [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]
Five albums for me to list again (because my brain thinks in 3, 5 ,and 7’s… [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] Odd numbers for an odd brain… [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] )
Sebadoh, ‘III’. Along with ‘Bakesale’, this is definitely one of their best albums.
Frank Black and the Catholics, ‘Pistolero’. This has got to be his best work since the Pixies! [img]images/smiles/icon_cool.gif[/img]
And now for the GBV related triathalon… [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Robert Pollard, ‘Speak Kindly of you Volunteer Fire Department’. Another of Bob’s "solo" albums, which really isn’t that solo since GBV’s current lead guitarist, Doug Gillard, also plays on all the tracks. Given that Pollard releases 4 or 5 albums of some sort per year, I guess they can’t all be under GBV…
Airport 5, ‘Tower in the Fountain of Spark’. Pollard teams up with former GBV guitarist/songwriter, Tobin Sprout. Very good to hear them writing together again.
eyesinweasel, ‘Wrinkled Thoughts’. Tobin Sprout’s new band (w/o Pollard). This is one of the best albums I’ve listened to in a long time. Best of the ones I’ve listed here. I highly recommend it… [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_cool.gif[/img]December 13, 2001 at 7:02 am #68209
peter holsapple and chris stamey–mavericks. the two guys from the db’s reunite in the early 90s to make a little more mellow, a little more mature, but still a great album.
smog–knock knock. its got ghetto kids singing backup.
martin phillips–sketch book: vol. one. stuff that the man that is the chills recorded on a 4 track at his house over time.
robert forster–danger in the past. great line from the great song ‘baby stones’: ‘everyman for the rest of your life will be less than me’
3Ds–hellzapoppin. kiwi rock.December 13, 2001 at 7:13 am #68210
elastica – bbc sessions
supergrass – i should coco
belle & sebastien – the boy with the arab strap
slint – spiderland
gbv – isolation drills
It’s a little difficult to keep up to date with all of Rob Pollard’s stuff over here in the Uk – I had to find my copy of ID in London as no-where here in Birmingham stocked it. good to hear there are other fans out there…December 13, 2001 at 9:17 am #68211

Royal Trux-Cats And Dogs-sounds like they overdosed on Exile On Main Street.A sloppy bluesy mess-way cool.
Mean Red Spiders-Starsandsons-A Canadian My Bloody Valentine.Floaty guitars,dreamy female vocals.

the Skids – Dunfermline ( colection of the Skids’ finest moments)
In memory of guitarist Stuart Adamson who died last week. [img]images/smiles/icon_sad.gif[/img]
Somehow the Skids stuff (from 1979/1980) has stood the test of time better than that of Stuart Adamson’s own band Big Country…..December 23, 2001 at 6:17 pm #68217
Nothing TOO different

The Gratyeful Dead-one of the many Dick’s picks albums…damn longhairs! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]
I think I gave up on the Flaming Lips after the clouds started tasting metallic. Haven’t bought the Green Album for the same reason after buying Pinkerton. That, and the radio burned out HASH PIPE within the first 2 days of its release.December 24, 2001 at 11:24 am #68219
Malcom-Mingus was the best!problably my fav jazz musician,I heard about 15 of his albums,all of them way cool.The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady, Right Now At The Jazz Workshop,and Mingus Ah Um are my 3 favs.
I have a few more to add:
Vic Chesnutt-The Salesman And Bernadette-Lambchop backs him up on this,pretty good album,his lyrics are always impressive-"a man dripping with vitalis said I looked like Joe Namath","native tongue on the TV blaring like an old Peavey".
Henry`s Dress-Henry`s Dress-JAMC style noise pop.
The Cramps-Bad Music For Bad People-bare bones rockabilly punk.Poison Ivy`s guitar solos are always cool,love the reverby tone.December 24, 2001 at 4:42 pm #68220
Lucero-s/t soulfull country rock from little rock. Fantastic album, but really hard to find, unless you’re from Arkansas
Frank Black- Teenager of the Year
Shadow’s Fall- Of One Blood
Cave In- Jupiter
Fugazi- In On the Kill Taker
just a few things I’ve been listening to a little too much lately. I hope everyone has a merry xmas. And be careful if you have to travel anywhere. (I’ve got a 14hr drive ahead of me tomarrow.)December 25, 2001 at 2:03 am #68221
Theres nothing too wrong with the green album I got mine on the cheap for less than $10 except that it sounds quite similar to the Blue Album. I got mine on the cheap for less than $10, but it isn’t worth full price. Pinkerton is the best Weezer album by far.December 30, 2001 at 9:31 pm #68222
