why would anyone name their new band after a band that had huge hits? Next time you want to name your new punk rock band, hit up "Google" first. Ya kinda look like a dipshit, you might as well name your new band Earth Wind and Fire....

mudhoney- superfuzz/big muff (fuck you. i love this shit!)

So do lots of other people, duder.

Devo- (any of the the first 3)

See, now, no. Only 'Are We Not Men...' is a true masterpiece. 'Duty Now...' slightly less, and that's it. 'Hardcore' just as essential.


My 5?

Can
VU
Stooges
Kinks
Birthday Party

you pick the LP.

ummm, yeah, if you wanna judge Devo, how bout some of the later Kinks albums! or is it different in that case.

See, now, no. Only 'Are We Not Men...' is a true masterpiece. 'Duty Now...' slightly less, and that's it. 'Hardcore' just as essential.

Oh yeah, relax. I was just annoyed by your justification/apology for liking Mudhoney. I mean, a world where you apologize for liking Mudhoney, particularly that record, is a world that sucks. Aight, sweet thang?

well, babe, I guess if you put it that way! Most people write off Mudhoney as just some shitty grunge band. this is a world that sucks! that's why NOW Compilations are the top seller on Billboard with every release (NOW 18 being the latest) i work in a major chain record store, you should see the variety of idiots buying this shit. 9 year old retards on up.
Posted: Jul 18, 2005 12:29 am
 
OK, you deserve a good story. 10 years ago, when I was 18, I worked at a record store (local chain-type). These total burn-out trash mullet dudes come in on one of my first days there. They come up to me, looking for a cassette (member thems?), something "That really rocks, bro. Y'know, some kick ass shit." Our cassette stock was dwindling at this point, but I figured I could find something. I scan the racks and what do I see but 'Superfuzz Bugmuff +.' Ah-ha! "Dudes, this shit kills. Total fuckin rock. Bad ass, etc. You'll love it!" They seem a little hesitant, turning it over in their hands, but finally, "Yeah! OK!" They buy it, walk out the door, get in their Camaro (seriously) and peel out. I feel elated at a job well done, knowing I've turned someone onto some great shit.

Not five minutes later, they come rushing back into the store, see me, and "Dude, no, sorry man, we don't like it. Can we get something else?"

They didn't even make it through "Touch Me, I'm Sick"!!

What, that doens't rock?!?

All of my co-workers laughed at me. "You'll learn, you'll see..."
Posted: Jul 18, 2005 12:32 am
 
Mudhoney "Superfuzz/Big Muff" is a worthy cause, I know alot of people who love this record. Definately has more garage rock cred than any other band of that ilk. I'm thinking that the double CD retrospective that came out a few years ago could now replace this, because I believe it has most of that shit on it, plus a bunch of other stuff, including most of their covers.
Posted: Jul 18, 2005 12:33 am
 
man when you say everyone what's the context? because if it was everyone using this board i'd write a totally different list than if it was everyone in the entire country or world.
Posted: Jul 18, 2005 12:37 am
 
Come to think of it, even their MTV bullshit stuff like "Suck you Dry" or their cover of "Pump It Up" wasn't that uncool, considering the time period/context.

5.Vapors-New Clear Days

Interesting pick, I really like that record.

I'd go with...

the Suck You Dry guitar riff is fucking classic to. Try making that few of chords sound that pissed and rockin!

Not five minutes later, they come rushing back into the store, see me, and "Dude, no, sorry man, we don't like it. Can we get something else?"
I always try pusing Oblivians, In The red, Sympathy etc, stuff to the radio friendly metal heads that come into the store, I show them clips on the store computer hoping to sell and turn them on to something they might not ever hear anywhere else....yeah, they're never impressed at all really...I just get ah "yeah man, have you heard that new "Devil Driver" bad ass dude!". then I say, "nah man, haven't heard it"
thats my day at work.

I think this post should have said five records you think every GARAGE ROCKER should own. Because there's lots of people and people all have different tastes. Just because you dig something doesn't mean some other ugly street urchin will.

This is a weird topic, because "what everyone should own" is a lot different than "favorite." I mean, a record like Pet Sounds or Trout Mask Replica are "important" but aren't favorites of mine....(I'd take Friends and Safe as Milk by the same artists..) Ramones isn't my favorite LP by a punk-era band, but it'd have to go on the list.

Nerdy but fun to talk about I guess.

Ramones - S/T debut
AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers (the B side of that album is my favorite string of songs ever)
Link Wray - Link Wray and The Wraymen
Pixies - Surfer Rosa

That was brutal. And I agree that "favorite" and "should own" are completely different but it's hard to sperate the two.
Posted: Jul 18, 2005 12:38 pm
 
It's hard for me to find much fault with Mudhoney at any point, even if there was some inconsistency on some of the mid-90s albums. Piece of Cake has some mind-blowing pops songs ("Good Enough" and "Into the Drink") and the aforementioned "Suck You Dry" as well as "Today Was a Good Day" and some other later songs are a lot of fun. And if you have any penchant for the stoner rock thing as it seems some folks here do, Since We Became Translucent is pretty great. Steve Turner is seriously underappreciated.

As for 5 records people should own, people should own at least 10 records. Maybe even 20.

1) VU & Nico
2) Skip Spence - "Oar"
3) Ramones - "Ramones" or "Rocket to Russia"
4) Blind Willie Johnson - "the Complete Blind Willie Johnson"
5) Public Enemy - "It Takes a Nation of Millions"

This is weird. A lot of my favorite people, but for those people I would go with:
Nick Cave- Your funeral, my trial
Leonard Cohen- Songs of Love and Hate
Gun Club- Mother Juno
J&M Chain- Automatic

And Swans- White Light From the Mouth of Infinity should round out that list.

And as for Mudhoney, just stay away from My Brother, the Cow!

As for my own list, that's just too hard...

Mudhoney stuff, the DVD should be pretty cool.

Mark has just sent in a number of details about the forthcoming Mudhoney album. The new LP is still untitled, will be released by Sub Pop and is tentatively scheduled for february 2006. As with their previous studio effort, Since We've Become Translucent, the band will work with various producers, recording a small batch of songs with each; so far they've booked studio time with Johnny Sangster, Phil Ek and Tucker Martine. As for the new tunes, Mark says: "We've got fast songs AND slow songs": titles for some of those that are likely to end up on the new album are I Saw The Light, On the Move, Hard-on For War, Where Is the Future?, In Search Of..., It Is Us, That Trench You're Digging, (We're The) Empty Shells (Of Our Former Selves), Blind Spots, and The Rag's On The Boil. Many of these have been already premiered at some of the band's most recent shows. Hard-On For War (which originally appeared on a compilation a couple years ago) will be re-recorded. And, yes, some of these will feature horns, just like SWBT.

The band is also very busy assembling a DVD release (probably a double disc set) which will feature all of their videos and a wide selection of live material. With some luck it should be in stores this fall, much sooner than expected!

thanks bazooka. you de man.

as for my own 5, it varies too much, but I'm definitely going to investigate some of the ones that people are listing here because that's another way to get turned on to new stuff you never heard before.

I don't really care what other people should have, but the records I've spun most the past couple of years are:

Mr Airplane Man - Red Lite
The Horrors - S/T
Cheater Slicks - Refried Dreams
Honeymoon Killers - Sing Sing (should have been released as a 3LP)
Led Zeppelin - I

Piece of Cake has some mind-blowing pops songs ("Good Enough" and "Into the Drink")

These are actually from 'Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge'; a great record and my intro to Mudhoney. 'Piece of Cake' does have some great songs on it, I love "When In Rome." And 'My Brother the Cow' is actually really good! They're one of those bands where I like everything, even the not-so-good. And they're putting out another record? Yows.

5. herb alpert- whipped cream and other delights
Whipped Cream and Going Places are the most popular choices but I say S.R.O. is the best. It may not have the biggest hits, but it's the most consistent. The next three reissues - Sounds Like, Herb Alpert's Ninth, and Beat Of The Brass are out on August 16. There's some rumors floating around that Herb might even tour later this year. ˇOlé!

The Model Rockets- "Hi-Lux"
Bruce Springsteen- "Nebraska"
Jonathan Richman- "Jonathan Sings"
John Fogerty- s/t (From 1975- still not in print in the US. What the fuck?)

I intentionally left off many of my more "in your face" favorites (Oblivians, Black Flag, Minor Threat, etc.) I tried to come up with a list that I figure almost anyone with a passing interest in rock n' roll could appreciate- Goners and non-Goners alike.

sixth-walt disneys chiling thrilling sounds of haunted house
One of my fave records EVER! I still have almost the entire spoken word intro to the first track memorized. "You are a bold and courageous person; afraid of nothing!"

Does anyone know if this thing was ever issued on CD? I wanted to get it for my nephew but I couldn't find it anywhere. If it is in print, I imagine they've probably omitted the non-PC jibber-jabber on the "Chinese Water Torture" track.

Veg/Seger, I can't find this thing anywhere on the 'net. Do you have an exact title for the reissue or a link or something?

As "up" on music as I THINK I am (stress "think") and I couldn't tell you what "genre" De La Soul even falls under. I've obviously heard of them but no clue whatsoever. I'm guessing hip hop in which case I'm pleased as fuck that I've missed their entire catalogue.

But I hear that the vinyl of "3 Feet High" is fucked because they's so many tracks and it sounds like 2 pieces of doo doo in my hand. Most of those records I listed I don't listen to every day, it would just be nice if I saw them in somebody's stacks when I came over box wine style.

But I hear that the vinyl of "3 Feet High" is fucked because they's so many tracks and it sounds like 2 pieces of doo doo in my hand.

This is true. I wish somebody would reissue it as a doupble lp with fat sound. I bet it's already been done but I ain't heard about it. I was actually looking for a copy of this lp on ebay yesterday. It's too fucking good, in any style of music. In fact, De La Soul Is Dead is near perfect too. There is a copy of the song they sampled for "Peas Porridge" on ebay right now and I want that too.

Sam, that Alkaholics sounds shitty? Bummer. That album was meant to be BUMPED.

That version. All that shit was meant for discmans anyway.

I think the only thing Steely Dan is good for is providing samples for De La Soul.

the Clash -Sandinista
Monster Magnet -Spine of God
Royal Trux -Twin Infinitives
Drunks with Guns -s/t
Judas Priest -Sad Wings of Destiny/Stained Class/Sin After Sin

This record should come with a bag of brown powder.

this is the way i look at it. not best, just records you're always glad to hear.

and box wine really makes the party.

That's funny you say that. I'd never really heard this band, but Mike who sang for them is my new drummer.

It's just Tuh-tuh-tuh-tuh-Texas Wine.

Damn. Mike S picked a few off my list, but I still gotta list a couple of 'em. This is hard. 5 really isn't enough. This is what I couldn't live without..

Badfinger- Straight Up
Kinks- Village Green
Velvet Underground- White Light White Heat
Serge Gainsbourg- Histoire de Melody Nelson
Rolling Stones- Beggars Banquet

Oh, on the Gun Club. Fire of Love is essential. Mother Juno is good enough, but not essential. Just my opinion.

What a misleading thread title. I was hoping to get a jump on my Christmas shopping from the suggestions here. Records "everyone" should own. I'm sorry, but I'm not getting my grandad a copy of Killed By Death #2. And I'm not coughing up my hard earned dough to get my aunt a copy of S.O.D's Speak English or Die if she's only going to throw it in the trash, she'd probably do the same with Aretha Franklin's From the Delta to Detroit too.

um, are you for real? the Drunks With Guns lp and (real) 7"s are unbeatable degenerate scuzzpound. have him make you a mixtape (and ask if there's unreleased stuff around!)

So what's on your own list then?? I know when I'm a grandparent I'm still going to be listening to the Oblivians and The Dead Boys on a weekly basis so maybe the problem is with your family. My grandpa's 78's of Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Glenn Miller and Count Basie and his old Delco record player which I now own are still just bitchin'.
Posted: Jul 23, 2005 3:59 pm
 
Eric, I'll ask him if he has any unreleased stuff. Yeah, he already burned me the CD and my wife had the Headgiver 7", but I had never listened to it.
He's a great drummer though. Best I've ever played with...

There has in fact been a double-LP reissue of "3 Feet High and Rising." I got it a couple of years ago.

Also suffering from the too-much-playing-time-jammed-onto-a-single-LP problem was Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique," which was also reissued as a double.

I feel every home should own at least one Son House record
Posted: Jul 23, 2005 5:04 pm
 
These are records I've bought more than three times(because I break em',bite holes in em' when I'm drunk,or lend them out,and never see them again).My favorite is (#1)JUDAS PRIEST UNLEASHED IN THE EAST.you can put "SINNER" on at dance parties.It's well recepted.(#2)RAMONES- ROCKET TO RUSSIA cuz creitens like it(#3)CRAMPS-LIVE AT THE PEPPERMINT LOUNGE.What a DAMN good record(#4)ROLLING STONES-GET YER YA YA'S OUT.The prom queen gave me that one,and it grew on me.(#5)MOTORHEAD-NO SLEEP TILL HAMMARSMITH.Fast Eddie Clarke is way under rated. THEY AIN'T NO NEW RECORDS,THEY'RE OLD STAPLES. IF YOU DONT OWN THEM,BUY THEM. I most certainly will! AGAIN!
Posted: Jul 23, 2005 5:13 pm
 
Disney's"Haunted Mansion"was my favorite record too,when I was FIVE.It used to scare the BEJESUSSHIT OUTTA ME! It got stolen. My fave right now is JUDAS PRIEST-UNLEASHED IN THE EAST.I've bought that record four times .........so far. I keep getting drunk and breaking it in fits of rage.
Posted: Jul 23, 2005 5:17 pm

I have probably 5 copies of BLONDE ON BLONDE, the essential 60s record and probably the essential 20th Century record.

I also have about 5 copies of LONDON CALLING too.

I have multiples for all the same reasons as miss linda --- plus, one for the house, one for the car, one for the walkman, one for the office has become a rule.

Of newer records, I have multiples of these essentials:
TOO MUCH GUITAR, ULTRA GLIDE IN BLACK and ROCKET TO RUSSIA as well

I think EVERY record collection should include these.... your parents can dig these (mine would.... in their 80s if alive)

5 classics that no one mentioned:

angry samoans - back from samoa
johnny cash - at folsom prison

You people make me happy - not only can I now tell my woman that there is proof that there are other people in the world who buy multiple multiples of their favorite records but you guys keep naming all the stuff I have and love.
