Jebus you really hit it on the head there, one of the coolest things about this site is discovering…or rediscovering…amazing songs.
That indie mix sounds like it would be pretty cool road trip music [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Keebling Raise is my absolute fav Swervedriver…my fav tune is Rave Down followed closely by Feel So Real. I am continually surprised the disc survives all the abuse and playtime it gets [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]August 17, 2001 at 9:57 pm #65007
I know whatcha mean, another girl [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
It’s about time to replace my disc, as well [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
You have really great taste! Well, everyone does here, but you know…hehe

I’ve been playing these a lot the last weeks:
The Setters (Alejandro Escovedo, Walter Salas-Humara and Michael Hall), the song "Let’s take some drugs and drive around" is such a beauty….
The La’s (mid-price cd re-issue with bonus tracks). "There she goes" is one of my favourite all-time pop-songs, the rest isn’t too bad either!
The Orange Humble Band – Humblin’ (across America), talking about near-perfect pop-songs: Ken Stringfellow (Posies), Mitch Easter (Let’s Active and producer of REM in their earlier days), Jody Stephens (Big Star) try their best to make a pure-pop-for-now-people-album!August 18, 2001 at 2:34 am #65009
Here`s what I`ve been listening to recently:
Eggs-Exploder-their 2nd album,they did another album called exploder a few years after this.Steve Albini once called them the most boring band he ever heard.I don`t think they`re too bad;if you like Unrest you`ll dig them.
Blood Oranges-Corn River-there`s 2 bulls on the cover,that gets cool points from me,they were a Boston alt country band;their bassist/singer Cheri Knight has recorded some solo albums on Steve Earle`s label.Too bad she did`nt sing lead on this,mostly backing vocals here,the guy does most of the lead vocals,and I don`t like his voice.
Replacements-Tim-great music,the Replacements were fantastic,everyone should check them out,it took me long enough to buy an album by them but I`m glad I did.
Oh Susanna-self titled ep-some gothic hillbilly music,very cool,along the lines of Gillian Welch.
Birddog-A Sweet And Bitter Fancy-more acoustic stuff,folky indie along the lines of Elliot Smith.August 18, 2001 at 2:56 am #65010
Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Coldplay – Yellow
A Perfect Circle – Mer De Noms
Radiohead – Pablo Honey
J. Mascis & The Fog – Rolling Stones Sessions
Cranberries – To The Faithful Departed
The Ramones – Self Entitled LP
Weezer – Weezer (1994)August 19, 2001 at 3:29 pm #65011
Keeblin-thanks for reminding me about Ride,I bought "Going Blank Again" 5 years ago and never listened to it,I pulled it out yesterday to hear the song you mentioned and yeah it is a great song and a pretty good album,kinda Swervedriver meets Teenage Fanclub meets MBV,very cool.I bought "smile" cd recently too,which compiles the their first 2 ep`s;I`ll listen to that someday.Hope you were`nt near that tornado in Nebraska!August 21, 2001 at 3:40 am #65012
Glad that you like Ride, Salami Guy! I have Smile and a 45 of Leave Them All Behind, which also includes Chrome Waves and Grasshopper. It came with a promo of Slowdive: She Calls. Not sure if it was originally included or not, as I found it at a used record shop. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Any Slowdive fans here? They remind me a lot of MBV [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
As for the tornado in Nebbie, I wasn’t even aware of it. But thanx for asking! xoxo

Ibrahim Ferrer -oops can’t remember the title [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Flaming Sideburns -Hallelujah, Rock’n Rollah: Allison, this is an album that might come to your liking! [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
Refused -Shape of Punk To ComeAugust 21, 2001 at 11:29 am #65014
Keeblin-I was talking to Turnipfarmer about Slowdive not long ago,he`s a fan.
If you like MBV stuff check out a band called Lenola;they`re from New Jersey,they`ve been compared to MBV and the Flaming Lips.you can check out some mp3`s by them at epitonic.com go to the indie rock section and scroll down in the box.Check out the tune"Baby Loves Headrub",that`s my fav.Insound.com has a good tune by them called "Milkpaint",those 2 songs seem to be the best songs I`ve heard by them.
There`s a band here in Canada called the Mean Red Spiders that are in a MBV/JAMC vein,I don`t know any mp3`s by them but check around music stores,maybe they have something by them,being on a canadian label it might be hard to find in the U.S. but it might be available.
Robert-my local record store has a split cd of the Flaming Sideburns and the Hellacopters,might have to check into that soon.August 21, 2001 at 1:20 pm #65015
Thanks for that suggestion, will try and hunt down that Flaming Sideburns…god I love that name [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]
Nike Royale just released a seven inch solo deal with two songs Law and Never Right, just on vinyl though I think. Holy Hellacopter… [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] Got that off their site

This thread is always cool to pull up,so I thought I`d update it:
Jesus And Mary Chain-Psychocandy-great album;they sound like they got alot out of early VU,and My Bloody Valentine got alot out of JAMC.
The Jam-Setting Sons-I love the Jam!the guitar sound alone that Weller got on their albums is great,cool tunes on this include"Burning Sky","Thick As Theives".
Fugazi-Instrument-soundtrack from their movie,I have`nt seen it,the soundtrack`s ok,mostly instrumental.
The Hellacopters-Disappointment Blues-great rocking music!thanks again to the hellacopterheads on this site(Allison,Robert) for their recommendation.
Th Faith Healers-L-a compilation of singles,including one of their best tunes-"Reptile Smile".September 5, 2001 at 8:33 pm #65017
Love Paul Weller’s guitar sounds not to mention vocals [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] The first 4 Jam were great, some good stuff after as well but just can’t beat the first ones for me. Voodoo Guy is playing Art School by The Jam at a show in a couple of weeks, been using that mind control stuff I taught him to influence some friends [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] Not sold on any of Wellers solo stuff, like a couple songs but thats about it.
Glad you liked Disappointment Blues, gonna put up a Hellacopterheads mix later [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Hope you don’t mind me borrowing that term [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
