I was 9 when this came out. I barely scratched the surface of what music was. Then a friend of mine introduced me the Green Day’s Insomniac, Offspring’s Smash, and Foo Fighters all in one week. What a week. I had recently gotten cable and remember turning on MTV and seeing Foo Fighter’s Big Me and it receiving “Buzz Bin” status. I would always pay attention to videos that had the green bar on the lower right had corner (those were always my favorite). Thanks Stereogum for making me remember this album, and now I will play the early Foos at work.

What a fantastic and comprehensive write-up on Philly. I’ve lived in Philly for about 8 years and have seen the music exponentially grow. Every time another Philly artist gets profiled on ‘Gum I share it to show how proud I am of the city. What’s really great is Philly is a hub for a lot of artists that are from nearby areas like Lancaster, York, Scranton, Southern NJ, Bucks County.
