I can remember being seven years old at the end of 1991, and listening to Teen Spirit like non stop (on MTV, cassette single, and radio). I would sit at our kitchen counter and write out my own lyrics to the song, and then I would go outside and play/act out the video of it. I was hooked for life at that point. Good times...

Nirvana. When they were the biggest band in the world, I was going to a predominantly Hispanic middle school, so the artists who were all the rage were Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. (Naturally, my favorite song at the time was Ace of Base's "The Sign.") I heard "Smells Like Teen Spirit" every once in a while but it wasn't till "Aneurysm" was released as the first single for From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah that I bought a Nirvana album and became obsessed with them.

mob: weren't you retiring 25 posts ago? Not saying I wish you would, just askin'.

Aneurysm is such an underrated song, and a great opener.

Possibly The Smiths. The amount of energy they used to be able to stir up at gigs was totally breathtaking and I have never seen anything like it before or since - and like you all I have been to a few.

Good call amy...damn I feel old...4 & 7 year olds listening to teen spirit when it came out that many years ago...I started listening to Nirvana when Bleach came out and the first time I saw them was at the OK Hotel...but never thought they were the best band ever...But Mother Love Bone came pretty close back then...

Hell as for now the best band ever is anyone that can write/perform a song of serious substance as far as I'm concerned!!!

OASIS. i listen to a lot of music, but i can put on an oasis song at anytime and i have never gotten sick of hearing them. there are very few bands like that for me at 29 yers of age. i may get hyped on a band for a few months or a year or two, but oasis has stood the test of time.

The Church was great too-I left feeling pretty mellow.

I know, he's so good looking in person it's almost disturbing.

Some really gross drunk old lady came up to him in line to get his autograph on her old saggy boobies. He did it, and then he looked at me (I was selling CD's as he was signing them) and said "I've never been propositioned so much in my life". I was like "oh, I SERIOUSLY doubt that".

I love that EP. The cover art for Today Forever and Nowhere are so great.

Agreed.
The cover art for Going Blank Again is not bad either.

Bryan you should make a Can mix and post it up sometime. Initiate us*. just sayin'.



* - by which I mean me.

I'll do that. The only problem is that they have a few amazing, essential tracks that are well over 10 minutes in length.

Do two mixes. One of the longer tunes, one of the shorter ones. Ala that Decemberists tour.

good taste, one year, it was so cool, we saw NIN 4 times in all kinds of different settings .. wow, trent, next to Neil Young, he has it together .. cr***

yeah, in 2005 my friend paul and i saw nin 3 times in different settings. coachella was definitely my favourite though. i hadn't really thought much about closer for a long time until i saw that performance, man oh man, the things i would let that man do to me... :x

Ron, what is that list from? It's glorious.

that is from one our favorite clubs that used to be here in Denver ... the family dog ... so those are some of my fav concerts just at that club .. one of the funest was the Fugs ... any NYC people remember them ? cr****




bball, yea i saw Blue Cheer, cant get enough of those summer time blues ... i liked their version a bunch ....

I've heard the Fugs. They are a seriously overlooked band. They were so far ahead of their time. "Saran Wrap" was my favorite.

you sure saw New Riders of the Purple Sage a lot.

08-31-2007, 09:20 AM
oh I forgot why i really even posted that list ... it was because top show, or at lease top 5 ever was Cream .... i dont know, the place probably held a few hundred, and we got right up front to see Jack, Ginger, and Eric ... i dont like drum solos very much, but Ginger tore it up ... and of course clapton, what can you say ... cr****

i know there were places like this is most major cities, but think of catching some of these people in a small club ...

velvet underground,doors, tim buckley, byrds, love, ccr, doors, mothers, big brother with JJ, dead, genesis, buffalo springfired, van the man ... and weird groups that didnt make it big, or you only knew them if you were hip lol like 13 floor elevators, moby grape and blues project

at least he did better then ole Syd .................................................. ......
ya know, i will get a lot of disagrement on this i guess, but i did my share of "stuff" but i never got close to the edge ... i dont think it is so much drug specific, but more the person (i do not include White drugs, which are the bain of us all and will ruin you first, then kill you). probably the weirdest thing i ever did was , i was in Jackson Sq (NO) during mardi gras and was trippin really heavy and i bought this coconut .. well those little holes at the top looked just like eyes so i gave it a name of Lalenya (donovan l) .... so here i am sitting in the park, crying because i found a crack in Lalenya and i knew, it wouldnt be long for the ole girl ... so i cop walks up and asks if i was ok ... i told him my story, and he just kind of rolls his eyes and walks off ... now that was pretty dumb of me, but nothing like flipping out ... cr****
