Inspired by Mullett ,I'll jump on the hand grenade first: The B-52's. Yes, they're fags and old biddies but their shows are fun as hell and they rock like a sonavabitch live.
Not bands really ,but I LOVE cowboy songs and so I like Roy Rogers, Gene Autry ,Tex Ritter and Sons of the Pioneers.

OXYMORON--their first two albums (Fuck The Nineties-Here's Our Noize and The Pack Is Back) are so transcendently excellent in the street punk genre that to even compare them to any other band in that genre would be an utter disservice. Ultra-tight, well-produced, talented songwriting (yes! thoughtful and well-written streetpunk!), tons of instant anthems, lots of energy, great vocals. They're from Germany and are the only band that could make me sing "I WANNA BE A DIRTY PUNK!". Killer band.

maybe not all goners would ridicule me for it, but for some reason i constantly have to defend my liking of deerhunter. don't care to explain any further.

Ridicule is what Goners do best. I can't think of a band that *wouldn't* be ridiculed by someone on the board.







Oh, and I like the Detroit Cobras.

Belle and Sebastian are good, at least their best shit is really good. Still prefer Pastels/Vaselines crew, and the B&S documentary made me want to strangle them, but they've come up with a lot of good tracks.

sarah, i actually like iron and wine and devendra banhardt and will oldham too. i also like elliott smith. i kinda like stuff like j church and jawbreaker and hot water music too. i like all kinds of dirty south rap stuff too. (in fact, i may make another visit to crunkfest this year like i did last year with andria and luteinizer.) i like some indie dance stuff that's ridiculous just because i like to dance. i have been known to sing along to really awful stuff like journey and styx and reo speedwagon and CCR. reminds me of when i was little cuz i know my mom and stepdad used to listen to that stuff.

But I already heard Marc Bolan, and didn't really dig the first time 'round.

What I mean to say is, I bought that first Devendra record 'cause so many people were flippin' out over it, and while there were some pleasently creepy moments (augmented, I'm sure, by the fact that the first time I listened to it was in the car while getting lost in the suburbs while trying to find Goodwill), it ultimately bored me and I decided it sucks.

I like devendra cause he writes dumb little songs and they sound kinda nice. My favorite is the one about michigan and a snail and some such business. I write dumb little songs too and sing them to myself. His songs are more like songs though.
As per iron and wine, the first album tugs my heart strings like some nick drake does, and that's gotta count for something.

I like m wards covering the misfits. and arab strab covering sammy hagar.

I like "If you're feeling sinister" through and through, but that's the only record I ever owned by 'em. Still own it. I know there was an album before that, but haven't really heard it, and the album after (boy with the arab strap, right?) I never bought but my best friend was into and there were some songs on there that I'd get stuck in my head. And then the records just start to blur together. So, I stand by "maybe the first 2 and a half".

And how's this Leftpeg: I even bought that Looper 7" and I think I still got it. Talk about gay.

M.Ward I think is OK. Any sort of Portland indie rock from the mid-90's still gets me, as it's what I was raised on.

Pretty good drone-noise-space. I can dig it. Ever listen to AMP? Movietone?

First Devendra LP and EP are great. It's been quite awhile since I listened to him, but I saw him a bunch on early tours, stayed at the house, yadda. Really nice genuine guy, but last couple times I saw him he was def. getting a little further from/closer to THE EDGE. Or something. One time he asked me if I could score him any smack. It made me sad. I was like, "Any other drug, and I can do it" Hell, I coulda done the smack but I didn't wanna be "that guy." Next time I saw him though, he seemed to be doing better. I think the pressure (not to mention touring w/ Micheal Gira) was getting to him. Not so into his newer shit, and all the stuff around him (music-wise) pretty much blows. Dude's got mad talent though; amazing guitar player, great lyricist.

cried at the Sufjan Stevens show. I should probably get a beating for that, huh?

Yes. Saw him once. Ouch.

Then again, I listened to Faith No More's 'Angel Dust' the other day and it almost rocked me as hard as when I was 14. I love FNM (up til AD). Chuck fuckin Moseley!!!

Saw Eric Gaffney walking by the pizza parlor last night. Smoked a joint w/ him at a show he played w/ my friends' band about a month ago. He's a nut. Punk Rock Syd Barrett.

He actually busted my balls for not having gone to see re-united Sebadoh after I told him how much I love his old shit. I was like "Puff puff GIVE, motherfucker!"
Posted: Jul 19, 2007 10:04 pm
 
LUNA!!

A lot of my friends in HS school loved this band, but it always reminded me of this goth chick who didn't like her name and told everyone to start calling her Luna. Now I can't even stand the sound of it, much less a band named that name.

I loved them in high school. Saw them play a super epic version of 23 minutes in brussels once. It was sweet. I don't like them now though, I guess I got over them when I heard and hated pup tent.

I love Springsteen. I like every album he's every done (except maybe Lucky Town and Human Touch) and his output from '73-'85 contains some of my favorite albums ever.

I also really like the Orange Peels, especially that So Far album. They are possible the biggest puss-pop band ever. I found out later that Larry from the Mummies is their lead guitarist and I about shat myself!

And I am on a HUGE Fleetwood Mac kick lately. I'm not talking about the cool Peter Green period, either. We're talking about the Lindsay and Stevie period. I even bought Lindsay's first solo LP and I'm totally digging it.

got a weird soft spot for harry chapin, probably because my dad would put that on and i would cuddle up with my mom and listen when i was a little tyke. was kinda like story time.

others i can think of:

hall & oates (although i know some of you have come to my defense on that before)
fatima mansions (don't know how the hell this happened)
mother hips (especially back to the grotto)

Man, that Dogs' cover, "Nineteen" on the Rob's House 7" just shredds.

LUNA!!

I always wanted to see them. Mind of a Child Records did an LP/CD with a bunch of Brooklyn vets called Shapir-O'Rama. They did a song called "She's A Beacon" & they invited Dean Wareham to do the singing. Luna started doing for encores. I always wanted to go to a Luna show & shout for it.

I would call this "guilty pleasures" & my biggest guilty pleasure is Flock of Seagulls. Go ahead... Let me have it... I'm a grown man... I can take it.

Quadrupled. I just realized I have over 10 hours of GBV on my iTunes. No wonder they come on every fifth song when I have it on random. I also just realized I'm GAY!

GBV lovers on this board

I saw them play the Magnet magazine 10 year anniversary show in Philly w/My Morning Jacket & the Shins back in 2003. The Shins were so boring, I found it physically painful, but once Bob & the boys went on, the beer began to flow & all was right with the world again.

Columbus man-about-town Duane Hart lived with Nate Farley at that time. Nate was talking to us before the show & people started coming up to Duane & me asking if we knew Nate. I don't know what was on Duane's mind, but he kinda slowly said "Yeah, he & I share a place." Once a couple of kids heard that, they wouldn't leave Duane alone.

Hell yeah! I'll one up you: Long Fin Killie. TOO PURE!

Wondering how many US Maple fans in the audience. Not many, I'd guess.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 9:13 am
 
I have a US Maple album.

I heard about them through a *cough* Alkaline Trio *cough* 7" song lyric.

That's a statement for ridicule.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 1:50 pm
 
People would ridicule Guns n Roses and Archers of Loaf?

Appetite for Destruction is one of the best albums of the 80s and Ickey Mettle is one of the best albums of the 90s.

my biggest guilty pleasure is Flock of Seagulls
If you can get the visuals out of your mind, there is some really great guitar on "I Ran" and "Space Age Love Song". Too bad FOS guitar player cracked up mentally ,probably due to being in what just about everybody considered a joke band.

I was noticing just that the other day in the car; that "sparkly" repetitive line during the verse? VERY GOOD.

I also was impressed with the singing and sax in "Who Can It Be Now?" (Men at Work) on the same day.

Th Faith Healers have long been a favorite of mine, I guess it's ridicule-able. Echo & the Bunnymen? Dig some of that shit A LOT.

Funny music - first Boston LP and Hall & Oates put me in a good mood every time I hear 'em. So cheesily perfect, almost what an android or alien would sput out as "radio hit material."

Paulyfuckface - you never burned me that Thundermug!

Pollard is one truly likeable freak poet, Watch Me Jumpstart is one stellar piece of documentary entertainment, I've even seen them live...


If you saw them live pre-Mag Earwig and don't like them cool... but if you saw them post that record I'd say you didn't really see them.

Love Echo and the Bunnymen. Still have most of their LPs and also a few of my Siouxie LPs and most of The Cure ones too. I think I still own The Cult "Love" LP also.

I honestly have no idea...but who cares? Everything they've ever recorded is clogging the shelves behind me, and has been from the dawn of GBV. I live with a huge fan. Don't like them, never will, Pollard is cool. Period.

Probably next weekend - don't tell me what I won't like!!!!!!

GBV is a band I liked years ago but never really feel like listening to. Was it "Bee Thousand" that had "Kicker of Elves" and shit on it? That was my favorite.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 6:41 pm
 
Yeah, Bee Thousand. I can't talk or think about GBV anymore. Suffice to say, they once ruled, then blew.

I have a US Maple album.

I heard about them through a *cough* Alkaline Trio *cough* 7" song lyric.

That's a statement for ridicule.



What's the lyric?!?! Weird.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 6:42 pm
 
yes that was Bee Thousand. I feel the same way-loved them back then bbutnever listen anymore. When it happens to come on and I'm around I like though.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 6:42 pm
 
Wait, is it: "I went to the US Maple show/half the crowd left while the other half saw God" ???

GBV, Hall n Oates AND The Cult all fucking rule. No doubt about it!!!!!!

Tool's "Hooker With a Penis".
Fuck y'all. I like that song.
Posted: Jul 20, 2007 7:02 pm
 
And me and the boy love to sing along to QOTSA's "Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" and that Blur "Woohoo" song. There. I said it.

"Kentucky Rain" may be my favorite of his singles.

Love that tune, esp. the first 5 seconds.

Holy shit that is fucking lame/awesome!!! I mean, it's a horrible lyric ("somehow"? it's fucking Al Johnson, he's like the Christopher Walken of rock). "show the Fireside how I feel"? You feel like a simp and a dink!!! Christ.

That about makes my day.

Made the other lyric up, by the way.

i think i just liked a marilyn manson song i accidentally (right!) saw on Jay Leno! Whaaaaaaaat?

the La's "There She Goes" is up there with the best pop songs ever. too bad they couldn't fucking write anything near it again. Blur Parklife is fantastic.

others: pet shop boys, The The, nurse with wound, abba, ash ra tempel, Holger Hiller, anything with a vocoder in it, Dirty Ho. dambuilders, but they're my boys. Echo & the Bunnymen are great. early Pooh Sticks rule. KLF. Human League. Talking Heads. Chrome Cranks. Kill me.

We had a Go-Gos bootleg from right around 1st lp release, but with 2nd lp songs... they were amazing. I'm sure at that point they were the best band in LA besides what, Van Halen? Torched the stage.

US MAPLE? opened up for a great show... quintron, oblivians w/quintron, DEAD MOON in NYC. that was a whoah show. stroke it, noel.

GBV was a rock band, ended up with the dambuilders drummer (k march), ended up a pop band, great songs. come on. they're better than the Photos / A's / Yachts / Shirts / Polyrock / Pezband at least. Kicker of Elves!

i will now retire to drinking & reminiscing with richard martin. please join us someday.

Chrome Cranks
kinda snuck that one in eo, i can see the mixed emotions but i still have most of their stuff, teel and burt, come on, ripping off the scientists, it's alright in my book.
there was the one from seattle that was ripping off the chrome cranks, completely spacing on the name right now, but i think even they were great

Grateful Dead has some good songs on Workingman's Dead and American Beauty- "Box of Rain" is a great folk rock song

I like Moby Grape a lot, even after their first record.

I can totally enjoy some 70's Elton John.

Is Minor Threat a Guilty Pleasure?

Oh, and Stone Temple Pilots' "Big Bang Baby" fuckin' rules, I don't care what anyone says. And I like the s/t Blur Album.

"I wanna be adored" by The Stone Roses is fuckin' great.

That's all for now.

except for Shirley Temple's Pussy i agree with all this but i have posted about Monor threat, those deads, moby grape, and early EJ so my position is clear: keepers

and i wanna be adored on headphones is no guilty pleasure: it's a monster


i like 4 seasons, merrill frankhauser, millenium a lot too

Poco is prolly borderline goner ridicule--not that i care--

Anybody have that weird La's collection of 80s stuff? There's punk shit and Jesus and Mary rips and all kindsa strange stuff. I just have the CD itself and no case, so I don't know shit about it. I actually found it in a tour van in Europe.


"Nightmare in Pink" is a good song.

So is "Shine It On" and "Driving Bad" and "Doll in a Dress" and "Desperate Friend" and...

Seriously, her pictorial is so touched up that much of it is blurry. If you are into that, get the magazine Perfect 10. No surgeries, no touched up photos.

THE CARS!!!!!! But, that's probably not very ridicule-worthy, because they RULE!

Ocasek's son, Adam, used to do a lot of drinking & horsing around with bassist-mechanic about town, Jayson Brown. Adam typically would start fights that Jayson had to finish. Adam couldn't fight his way out of wet paper bag. Another thing about Adam was that he'd wear ripped Stooges t-shirts that he'd buy in a boutique for $80. Jayson swears Adam's never heard The Stooges.

Dana Hatch has got a good story about David Robinson, too, but that's for a later thread.

Yup. While I don't listen to Eddie Money, the "Shakin'" video is one of the best things ever filmed. And yeah Paul, Hall & Oates and the first Boston record make me happy for some reason I can't figure out. So ridiculous and funny, probably the perfect mentions on here. And you can add a couple Rush songs, as well.
