Queens of the Stoneage
QOTSA is not a classic band by any means.
Until I was 21 I'd never heard anything by Zeppelin apart from 'Stairway to Heaven.' Then I heard this on a pub juke box:
via the Fall
True, but i've only just discovered them - songs for the deaf is an excellent album i think.
Classic. And made up. All bands are made up though.
A former NME journalist was the singer I think. Therefore guaranteeing them an NME front cover before disappearing forever. I hate the NME.
Arse gravy were the better slop.
I saw the nightingales a few weeks ago, and they were bloody great. Is their recorded work any good?
ooh. i'd never heard this, but it is brilliant. cheers!
If you fancy peeking at them for real they're playing Koko in Camden on 17 Jan
Nice! Love the beat.
I'm a long way away but I did see them play in King's Cross about 10 years ago and they were excellent.
They should put the banned back together.
It is all brilliant and full of hidden word play that it takes years to uncover.
Drexciya is the last time i had that >with the underground resistance connection to follow <completely passed me by at the time
the more ive got to know about them and particularly their underage girl shennanigans the more ive come to not stand them - its not out of some righteous disgust - but what is it they are about really? what are they saying? not much i dont think. even the tracks i used to like i got back to now and think they're pretty shallow. no offence bakunin
Well, thats quite shocking. I like that! Much better than anything her husband did
This year I finally got round to hearing the Fall and Captain Beefheart and quite liking them.
Absolutely excellent band
I didn't find it anything special. Not bad just not that great.
Do Codeine count as classic? Also Bobbie Gentry.
Now if he'd said Kyuss...
No no no no no. No. Hell no.
I count them as classic. One album was recorded 19 years ago, and the other one 23 years ago, and they were "different" for the time. Big fan of "The White Birch".
Very definitely a one-time-only copper-bottomed classic. She's written a shitload of country standards, and sung a load of them into the charts too.
Come on, no-one with ears can deny that "Blues for the Red Sun" isn't a classic!
I'll concede that "Welcome to Sky Valley" and "The Circus Leaves Town" are average-ish, but "Blues..." is the real thing!
Depends which Melvins output though, tbf. Out of my entire Melvins catalogue, I'd probably only keep "Stoner Witch" if I had to choose one.
Sorry, I just don't like Kyuss. I can see that they were different and all that. But for me it's a bit like Voivod. I can't bring myself to enjoy it.
oh, these too. 'laughing stock' has been a regular spin lately. sublime.
