Find Me On:
Awesome read, man. I can go on and on about how much of an impact David Comes To Life had on me, but now I’m just really looking forward to what comes next. Abraham is a good dude; you can just tell from being in his presence (at shows, during interviews, reading what he writes). Despite what a lot of people might get from it, to me, Fucked Up is feel-good music, even amidst all the chaos and panic in the lyrics and noise. The whole weed thing/parenting argument, whatever is going on here – everyone’s going to have a different opinion. I think this piece should be taken for what it is: a great band, at a great time in their careers, getting ready to show everyone what they’ve been working so hard on.
“…an an EP…”
Nice song, though. I still miss old Yuck.
Needs more “Cruel”.
Robert Pollard loves tennis.
Stereogum “anthem” count: 4,591.
The extended version of “I Won’t Be Long” is more beautiful, and that graced us today. Still, this isn’t bad.
Much love and respect to Weird Vibes.
This rules. Thank you!
“Anthemic.” I think that word, and “Anthem” has been used in every single Stereogum post this year.
Stereogum, where every song is an “anthem” and the points don’t matter. Great song, though.
Layeth the Smackdown, Stereogum.
I wish you could’ve written about Fucked Up. That was a must-see set. The band was tight, and Damian was a maniac in the mud.
“Home” over “You Wanted A Hit”.
“All I Want” over “I Can Change”.
Everything else – well done.
Can we stop using the word “anthem”? It is a good song, though.
“Worship You” – such a standout. Very well done!
I love hearing a good “shit” on cable TV. Iggy was great.
“At The Bottom Of Everything,” where art thou?
This girl fucking sucks.
This was a terrific sketch. I hope they continue doing things like this.
“Volume 3 arrives next week…”
“Volume 3 is out 5/7 on Merge.”
Another comment/opinion: Bring back the thumbs up and thumbs down. Please, Gum?
