I know they’re not formal albums, but I got a LOT of milage out of the cassette version of Standing on a Beach for the amazing b-sides, and years later utterly consumed every bit of Join the Dots. I love many of their b-sides more than several complete albums.
I don’t see Peter Hook ever playing in New Order again… but that’s not stopping Bernard and co. from moving on.
Someday when you have a kid, and you’re looking to maintain your last shred of indie cred – you’ll realize Yo Gabba Gabba! is a truly amazing show. My 2 year old loves it and knows all the characters by name. I get to watch the likes of The Shins, MGMT, The Roots, I’m From Barcelona and of course – Weezer, play kids songs. We discovered that the first 2 seasons are on Netflix instant-stream, and our weekend mornings have never been the same since.
I can’t believe The Cure hasn’t been mentioned yet!
I spent many a teenage night wallowing to this in particular -
Have you seen this?
Los Campesinos in a Budweiser ad. Pretty awesome.
