Pardon me, "Mudhoney OR Screaming Trees song" is what I meant to say.... was still pre-occupied with the pool of vomit I'm sitting in.

Is there even any chance that any single one of these houseguests has ever heard a Mudhoney Screaming Treas song?

You're cheating yourself... Take Offs and Execution are two of the best indie albums out there. The Voyager sounds great after just one listen but I prefer her cute (Rilo Kiley) voice to her grown-up sexy (solo) voice, personally.

So I used to be a designer for the parent company of Stereogum and had a hand in designing this here site and can't tell you how stoked I was to read this first interview on a blog I consider to be one of "ours". I feel weirdly proud in a way, but mostly just so excited to have read such a well executed interview about one of my favorite bands. The chemistry between Nina and Louise is palpable. It's what made Veruca Salt explode in the 90's, it's what's kept weirdos like me hanging on all this time, and it's what will sell out every club and record store in 2014. See you guys at the Roxy.

gross... they raped an original song just like they raped the font in that stretched out Bing logo.

Agreed - We Have The Facts is their best work as far as I'm concerned and they've seemed to slowly but steadily go downhill from there. Transatlanticism was very good, Plans was ok, Narrow Stars not so great. I actually got really excited about Narrow Stairs at first with the pre-release of the 8 minute version of I Will Possess Your Heart. I thought, wow they might be trying something different here, and thought it was pretty ballsy to release an 8 minute song as a single. Then soon after it got the radio edit job, the album came out and it was sucksville. I remember seeing them a bunch of times in 2001 during a residency at the Troubador in LA - even at half capacity in a tiny club they blew my mind thousands of times harder than they will ever be able to in an arena.
