bands we all miss, of course
man they were awesome. they had the perfect level of shouting and not really playing their instruments, merely hitting them in time. weaponry listens to love is utterly amazing, despite just being largely unpleasant loud chaos in the most part. unpleasant loud chaos, when done right, is the champion of all musical forms.
just two junkies who lived in a house with lots of guns, i think. not nearly as good as they should have been (they should have been the greatest band ever), but still, as the internet parlance goes, “fb”. i mean, neil hagerty was in pussy galore, what more do you people want? john spencer? pah.
guided by voices
if you want an explanation then you suck. if you ever went to a music festival and saw them, but didn’t pay much attention because you were waiting for, say, feeder, then go do something painful now.
guided by voices were cool, catchy, classic, clever and drunk.
nation of ulysses
oh just go and listen to them already. see how much various bands (particularly the hives) have shamelessly stolen from them. see the only band who themed themselves around a fictional terrorist group, back when terrorism was a cool thing and not a Bad Thing.
