Dreaming of Monday
I will also add the acoustic version of “Make It Till Monday” needs to be heard by anyone who likes The Verve
Is Pulp more popular in the US than Supergrass? Blur and The Verve each had a hit, but I don’t get why Pulp is an elite band and Supergrass is a wannabe (by the way all four of these bands are/were consistently awesome).
Also, that Ocean Colour Scene song is a complete rip off of “I Am the Walrus” right? The melody of the verse seems identical
It also really ties the room together
+1 for Unbroken Chain
Concur with Heroin. Also, Oh Sweet Nuthin
I saw Soul Asylum with Spin Doctors and Screaming Trees in the early ’90s. In retrospect that was a pretty random show, but it made complete sense at the time.
This album is decent, but I haven’t listened to it since the ’90s. The Screaming Trees still rule though.
Was anyone else thrown for a loop by the Zombies’ “Time of the Season” snippet at the end of “Don’t Look Back”?
“Adorn” is pretty great but with “How Many Drinks,” “Do You” and “Pussy Is Mine,” this guy could stand to be a little more subtle.
The most distressing part of this debate is Moore’s statement that “Appealing to their moral sensibilities won’t stop [piracy].” Maybe I’m an optimist but if the message came from the musicians themselves rather than groups like the RIAA, maybe it would actually resonate? On the flip side, if people think Grizzly Bear and other bands of their stature are raking in the dough when they’re actually not, then it won’t have much of an effect.
I realize I’m arguing both sides, but it’s such a polarizing and seemingly unanswerable issue. I’m 36 and remember using Napster and Limewire, but I always bought anything that I tried and liked. If I were 26 and this free stuff was always available and easier to get, I’d like to think I’d still buy music because I’d want to support the artists…but maybe not.
As Ed intimates, when you think about how easily we’ll drop 10 bucks to see a movie once, or buy a few cups of coffee, you’d think it would be easy to spend 10 bucks for an album you’re going to listen to a shitload. Why people would have a harder time sneaking into a theater or running out on a restaurant bill than they do downloading an album for free is beyond me. I guess it’s easier knowing you won’t get caught.
Excellent call – Watch the Sunrise and YGWYD would definitely be on my list
This is also my favorite S-K album. Especially love this lyric:
Show you love your country go out and spend some cash
Red white blue hot pants doing it for Uncle Sam
And damn they were good live – I saw them in a small club and opening for Pearl Jam in an amphitheater, and they killed regardless of venue
