They were basically one of the first proto-hardcore bands, and you can hear the roots of Black Flag in their sound. Darby Crash (the singer) flared out after this, ODing without producing another album. Pat Smear, the guitar player, became the second guitar for Nirvana up until Kurt offed himself. There was a movie made about them recently and the band was so impressed with the guy who played Darby that they reformed with him as the singer and have been playing shows. I haven't seen them but I hear they were decent.
    What an absolute blast this album is.

    Now ain't this a little beauty. It definitely mimics a lot of the other selections on this list, I mean the guitar tone of "A Street Scene" and the Laughing Stock opener are just about identical. Even what they are playing may be the same chord, but that isn't the point is it? That is probably a good thing, isn't it? Wouldn't you prefer a musical landscape where artists try to sound like Talk Talk more often than not? I know I would. Back to the album though, this album has a nice pace to it, this is key to it's success. It seems to lure you in, without being overly patient (a constant downfall of modern Post-Rock artists, too often a band will shove a riff down your throat for double digit minutes, shining an ugly light on a misconception on what "dynamics"...it's not that interesting of a riff, man...). A nice understanding of knowing what is too little, and what is too much make these songs flourish with letterhead precision.
    Good god...incredible.

    I saw the brothers when they were called... Blackbird, I think? Was at Club Lingerie. Probably around 1995 or so. They were still pretty great. Do enjoy the Dils.

    Someone want to tackle UK garage? Or perhaps just a few recommendations if you don't feel like compiling a list of 10 essential albums?

    EDIT* It doesn't have to be strictly UK. Anything essential is welcomed.

    "UK Garage" is not what i thought it would be when I looked it up on Wikipedia. I'm curious.

    I think essential albums would be tough as it's much more of a singles genre. The Run the Road compilation is technically grime, but there's some serious overlap there and it's pretty fantastic.

    Thanks. I was actually kind of torn on whether to bump this thread of the "The Thread Where You Name an Artist and Someone Else Recommends an Album." If someone just wants to recommend some artists and or mixes that would be great.

    EDIT* Cara recommended Todd Edwards (who I really dug).
