this weekend, my visiting mother brought a large trunk that was full of all kinds of crap i thought long gone. we’re talking, like, high school sophomore year papers, old notebooks, etc. as someone that generally disdains nostalgia, it was an extremely disconcerting experience.
with my newfound interest in these guys i was surprised to find that they’ve never been played here before.
after one album in 20 years, here was the hot new single from his album tilt.
For my last day, I decided to pick a song of pretty great importance to me. I first heard this song on 120 Minutes when I was up way too late in elementary school. I was instantly in love. It was listed as being on the soundtrack for The Crow, and I went out [...]
sometimes i miss the 90s. sometimes. a little. okay, not really.
i couldn’t decide if i wanted 10 stars from AMR, or 1 star. i went with the former.
Ben Folds Five reunited, they have a new record, and are touring. While his solo albums had a few moments I think the proper BFF albums are terrific. Even the new one isn’t half bad.
An old favorite, 2012.
Impromptu theme week? You got it.
Return Of from the Rentals is a pretty fun summer record.
yeah, i still love this song.
For AMR and really for everyone.
Pumpkins came out (are coming out?) with a new album. I will probably give it a chance. Stupid nostalgia.
To piggy back off of jobu, here is my favorite Beasites tune. This is as a result of Tip being prominently involved.
i miss when MTV had something to do with actual music.
This is as close to a star grab as you’ll get out of me. Nevermind was released Sept. 24, 1991 – I was 11 years old. It was my first “rock” album and it was a cassette*. After one listen, I flipped it back over and played it again. After about 10 listens, I began [...]
Alright, this one holds up a little bit better than some of the other tunes I’ve been playing this week.
i recognize that the butthole surfers have a wide and distinguished catalog (though i must admit to being largely unfamiliar with it). technically though, they are a one hit wonder.
i will also admit to this track being semi-omnipresent during the summer of `96, and that summer being awesome.
the first show i went to as a semi-sentient musical being (not including that aerosmith show during their get a grip tour [don't say a word]) was hole playing first avenue. in my defense, live through this was a halfway decent album for a 13 year old that had basically worshiped kurt cobain. that said, [...]
jobu, just remember, I played Cornershop a couple of months ago.
